More valuable information. I know you were really diligent in trying to gather information before you pulled the trigger, so I'm glad that you are initially pleased with the lens.

Stylish shot. You've used the distortion to your benefit here, and the textures are nice and crisp.
Thanks Dustin. Actually, I did use a lens correction profile but because of mostly curve lines, it's really hard to differentiate whether one was used or not. I downloaded my lens profile from Adobe using the lens profile downloader from the following link:
I've not hard a chance to compare the differences between Adobe's vs Sven's. Has anyone tried both of these profiles?
Speaking of distortion. Someone sent me a link to my website of a great profile for Rokinon/Samyang. It is "technically" for a D600, but does a fabulous job with all FF bodies. I've been impressed by it in the last couple of days
Thanks Dustin, I will have a go at this and try to make it work for my MkII and III.
Ok I modified the text file so it can now be selected from the lens profile list under make 'Samyang'. This way it is independent of the camera model or brand. Download it below:
From a recent trip to Kuala Lumpur.
That top shot is really killer. Fabulous work!
Thanks Dustin, your advice regarding manual focusing on this thread was extremely useful!
I was skeptical about this old school lens originally, but thanks Dustin for the nice review and beautiful shots, just pulled the trigger for this lens. Here is a shot I did yesterday evening. ISO 100, f22, 0.4 sec, 7 ft. C/C is welcome. Thanks.
Hi everyone! I've been encouraged from multiple sources to start writing smaller pieces that tell the story of what was in my mind while shooting. This first shot is a simple subject that tells a story. Thought you might enjoy reading the piece if you are interested:
Thank you, Surapon. Glad to share
Dear Dustin , my friend and my teacher.
I love your posts and your links, That make me learn your point of views and " How to " with your great knowledge of photography.
Thank you, Sir.
Yep, there's a lot of you in that image -- I saw it before I read a word.
I've done a lot of the kind of work you do, and I always see our brokenness. Yet, off in the distance is always that vague promise of something better. We are all broken people hoping for oneness.
Compositionally, I love the stacked horizontal lines -- and the dark/light contrasts between them.
Thanks for sharing this -- and I'll look forward to more of these.
Great post Dustin. I always enjoy your work.
