Nice review Dustin (yet again)
Also I have the 8mm samyang which i use on my eos m, for the $200 or so it cost its an amazing lens
I put the dandelion chip on mine and programmed it using a 5D so it reports correct EXIF and has AF confirm and displays the wide open aperture rather than 00
I highly recommend putting one on they are about $20 off ebay just make sure you get the proper one from europe not the chinese copies
Thank you. How does the size compare between the two lenses? The 14mm is still a pretty compelling option on the M, but is a bit bulky. Once I get my own copy I will be putting the chip on the 14mm. Thanks for the tip regarding the source - that is a valuable bit of information.
Dustin, thank you for taking the time to write up and post your review of the Rokinon 14mm ultra-wide lens. As a result of your review, I think this lens will be my next purchase. I've been thinking about getting an ultra-wide, but have been hesitant to do so given the price of Canon's ultra-wides, the known issues with those lenses, and how much I'll likely use the lens. The 14mm Rokinon, it would seem, solves this dilemma.
wickidwombat, could you please provide more information on the autofocus confirmation chip you mentioned? I tried to find the European version you mentioned on eBay, but could not do so. Also, do you know if the AF chip will work on a 6D? Not having an AF confirmation chip is certainly not a deal breaker, but it is something I'd consider getting if it would work on a 6D.
