Amazon has a flash sale on new Rokinon 14mm F2.8 AF lens. Normal price is $849. You must select Amazon.com as a seller.

https://www.amazon.com/gp/product...PDKIKX0DER

This is a newly redesigned 14mm full frame Prime lens that has been shrunken to take advantage of mirrorless camera mounts and to reduce barrel distortion compared to the older 14mm F2.8 Manual lens. Obviously they added native AF and in-camera Aperture control for fully automated shooting, which is the biggest differentiator from the old lens. Unlike old lens, this one is Sony E mount exclusive.

This is a great price as comparable offerings from Canon and Nikon cost up to $2,100

yes its auto-focus but at that wide of an angle how hard is it to get everything in focus...I've had my regular 14mm 2.8, the samyang version, for 2 years now and if you can not get your pictures in focus with that lens...you should not be taking pictures with a dslr...just buy a point and shoot like a rx100 and get it over with or better yet just use your phone and you be set.
During the day and shooting at infinity, I agree, focusing is easy. But in low light or at very wide (F2.8) aperture it can be tricky sometimes and I've been using the manual lens for the past few months. This lens is fully automatic with full EXIF sharing with camera - big advantage, IMO besides strictly AF.
For stills, at the current price it's a no brainer. For video I would still prefer manual version with declicked aperture.

Nope, this new design is (at least for now) exclusive to Sony E mount.

I totally get it but why would you shoot at f2.8 in low light with a 14mm lens? I think the only time i shot with this at 2.8 was the 1st couple of months that I got it but after that Ive always been at 4 or 5.6...also im a Nikon shooter so my version moves with the chip which sends the info as well.

Um, like, you'd shoot at f/2.8 in low light when...there's low light, Einstein.

Nikon version was the only one chipped, so commenting on Sony lens like its not big if a deal is not exactly kosher, you know what I mean?
As for shooting at F2.8 this is actually almost exclusive aperture I use as I like this lens for dusk landscapes and a thing called astrophotography.
Everyone's use case is different, obviously.

Hmm I was also curious as to why he suggested not to shoot wide open in low light. But yes, my first thought would be to go as wide as possible with the aperture when shooting in harsh low light conditions like astrophotography.

I actually think it's relatively easy to misfocus that lens. Unless you use zoom in your viewfinder, it's hard to tell if you're perfectly in focus, in particular if you're trying to capture a moving subject.

well the trick is the aperture, set that on 5.6 and it will get much easier with a little practice

No, it isn't. You skimmed the obvious and clear instructions in the OP.

well I've never done pitch black or astrophotography, my main use for this lens is real estate photography so I never need to go lower than 4.
