I just got mine a couple days ago, today is the first time I got to shoot it, impressed so far.

That's very nice, how much is the sky held back?  If it's not, it looks like it is a bit.  But it looks natural, so nice job.  Not sure I would have put the sun in the center like that for this shot, but I have to admit it does work this way anyway.  I need to get one of these lenses.  I don't like the idea of the corner stretching projection (I'd prefer 16 to 20mm), but there's really no other wide angle that comes close in IQ, that I can justify blowing the money on right now.  Anyhoo...again bravo...and my favorite part is the snow and trees in the bottom half.

Thank you.  I almost always go for the natural look, even though the facebook folks seem to love the gaudy HDR ones.  This is a 7 shot bracket, enfused, no other processing.  The wind up on this tower was crazy too, so I know sharpness suffered because of that.  This was just a quick test of the lens, since winter in Wisconsin you take any sunshine you can get.  Once it warms up I'll get some real shots.

A nice image, and very natural looking.

You're most welcome.  It looks natural, but I could tell the sky was held back.  You're saying it's a multi shot composite...well you did a good job.

Has it gotten any warmer up there lately?  Haha...

No ones posted on this for a while so I thought I'd share a couple of recent shots using this lens. I'm noticing some increased softness on the bottom left of my frame compared with the other corners but it's still acceptable considering what I paid for this thing! I love the detail and look of this lens, can't quite describe it but files are very nice to work with in post.

Both shots were done with a tripod and remote release to see what this puppy could really do. (these are very low res btw, if you want to see it larger go to flickr - https://www.flickr.com/photos/zanjum/  )

Testing the new Samyang SFH-14 filter holder that was recently published.
The holder comes with double slideways so i used two filters (Cokin 154 ND8 + Cokin 121M ND4) to take this photo.

Great shot.  It renewed my interest in getting the filter holder and filters.  I work with the North American supplier, and they checked and were informed that they aren't bringing it into North America.  Ebay?

Thank you! I got my set from UKdigital http://www.ukdigital.co.uk/catalogsearch/result/?q=samyang+sfh.14 but i guess your only option for now is Ebay. Can't wait to use this combo in Iceland.
