Third Party Manufacturers / Re: New Laowa 12mm f/2.8 Zero-Distortion
« Last post by keithcooper on July 26, 2016, 04:21:38 PM »
I've really enjoyed my Rokinon 14mm rectilnear lens for many years now, almost as long as I've had my 5D3 when it came out....<P>
Bang for the buck, the little Rokinon has really been a workhorse lens for me when I needed a really nice wide lens...<P>
The newer models of the Rokinon I think have a focus assist chip in them, but I've not seen that in action.

I'm wondering how this new one will compare...?

I think I got my Rokinon on some kind of Social Living deal for under or about at $200 back in the day.....

No chip in this one, but in terms of image quality I feel it bests the Samyang.
I have now reviewed both if you're interested.  You won't get the 12mm at anything near that price though!

As someone doing a fair bit of architectural work, the low distortion of the 12mm works well, but I do remember taking a lot of Samyang shots where it didn't show ... but where it did show, it was very obvious and correcting it took the effective focal length (after crop) to 15/16mm

I'd love to get this camera, but only when it gets the sensor upgrade in a III version. Hope that is soon.

Just a burp. The tide rises and falls.

Does anyone know much about the new "Digi-Bees" by Buff?

https://www.paulcbuff.com/alienbees.php

I can't really tell the difference between them and the regular Alien Bees...except some specs and price....are they just newer models of the AB's or is it really new tech of some sort?

Only that they take the CSXCV which is a key requirement for me. Oh and the stupid naming nomenclature continues, the 400 is a 160 Ws and the 800 is a 320 Ws.

If you need low power the 400's look interesting, if you are thinking about the 800's I can't see the price differential between them and the Einsteins being worth it, take a month or two more saving and just get the Einstein.
