Find a Whole New Perspective on Everything

Manuel Delgado

Photographer from Germany

The year 2020 is for sure a breaking point for the photography industry as the
market got filled with mirrorless cameras from major brands and with them, many
lenses were developed specifically for these systems.

Canon is one example. We now have the first EOS R system, a promise that will be the point of the spear for the years to come for this brand.
Not only we saw the arrival of their first two mirrorless cameras -the Canon Eos R and RP-, but also a line of supreme objectives for the RF mount. No one can deny
the quality of these glasses, becoming some of the best glasses nowadays. In the same way, it′s hard to ignore how expensive they are, getting at the top of the prices.
Taking into consideration the previous asseveration, third-party manufacturers are also developing alternative options for the consumer with more affordable prices

Samyang is a South Korean
manufacturer of camera lenses with
over 40 years of experience.

They have characterized for producing budget-friendly manual focus objectives with great quality and more recently, becoming an alternative to consider when purchasing autofocus objectives. This year, they produced some of the first manual focus lenses for the RF mount and they become the first manufacturers to offer an autofocus objective for the new Canon′s mirrorless cameras which are also, the widest lens available for this system: the Samyang AF 14mm / 2,8 RF.

The construction of this objective impresses with its quality. In a first impression, it looks very similar to the EF version for Canon DSLR′s.

In a first impression, it looks very similar to the EF version for Canon DSLR′s. The weight is a reasonable 484g that accommodates very well with the Eos R body without appearing cumbersome or too bulky. The lens cap has two clips that place it securely, a little detail that is highly appreciated. When removing it, the lens reveals a fixed petal lens hood around a glass with a semi-spherical element. This means that the objective possesses extra protection while minimizing light glares. However, and because of that, filter threads and holders are not possible to be mounted in the front. This is a pity for landscape photographers who would want to take advantage of the ultra-wide-angle to capture broader sceneries. As a compensation, the back of the lens has a rear filter holder that serves as a slot for gelatin filters.

The exterior of the lens is
minimalistic and visually appealing.

It only has one control ring for focusing. This is electronic in operation and very, very smooth. Focusing is down to 0.2m with a maximum magnification of 0.12x and 9.5cm long. This is helpful in enabling us to get in very close to foreground subjects, taking full advantage of the ultra-wide field of view and its potential for dramatic viewpoints. Again, it looks and functions very similar to its brother for the EF mount. It will be very interesting if Samyang decides to include a control ring like those ones found in Canon′s lenses in order to take full advantage of adaptability with the camera body.

There is also just one switch, marked AF/MF and self-explanatory.

This switch is quite firm to operate and quite recessed and small, so there is no way that it will be operated by accident. As a great plus, the lens is weather-sealed, so we can continue shooting if conditions deteriorate. The drawback is that it lacks an image stabilizer. It could be assumed that it won′t be a problem due to its lightweight for handholding, but if Samyang decides to add this feature to their objectives like other third-party manufacturers, they will become for sure some of the favorites by consumers.

Optical construction is 14 elements in 10 groups. There are 3 Aspherical, 1 HR (High Refractive Index) and 2 ED (Extra-Low Dispersion) elements, 7 blades to the diaphragm and Samyang's UMC (Ultra Multi Coating). Images that were taken with this lens prove minimum distortion with a non-common broader perspective of 113.9 degrees.

A 14mm lens is a magnificent optic to use, making it possible to include the whole of vast interiors and exterior architecture and to capture sweeping vistas in the landscape.

It is also fair to mention that an ultra-wide-angle lens is not a common objective and the photographer needs to learn how to take advantage of its capabilities. Since these lenses exaggerate the size of foreground objects relative to the background, they are best used in close proximity to the primary subject. The point is to highlight the subject, making it appear proportionally larger than its surroundings or the background. With practice and creativity, a 14mm could become an essential tool for photographers.

The Samyang AF 14mm / 2,8 RF lens behaves faultlessly, focuses truthfully without hunting, and with minimum distortion. For sure, it can help us to find a whole new perspective on everything that surrounds us.

Samyang’s Guide to Achieving the Optimal Angle of View

The perfect spacing and distance are always necessary when shooting all kinds of subjects, including people, to give them a proper relationship with the beautiful space around them. So, what’s the exact distance that helps you best appreciate a work of art, or a photo?

The correct answer is the diagonal length of the full frame of a subject.

???? ?? ???
???? ?? ???

The best standpoint from which to appreciate the full view of a subject is the distance of the diagonal length of the subject frame. This wider angle is superior to standing closer at a 50 degree angle to get a more detailed view. This notion of an ideal distance or view point is also applicable in the world of photography.

For still images, keeping a distance equal to the diagonal length of the full image surface is recommended. The full frame sensor of a digital camera is 36 x 24mm and the diagonal length is 43.26mm so any distance close to this number is nearer to the ideal than the currently accepted industry standard of 50mm.

Back when film cameras were common, 45mm was the industry standard and this continued as reflex cameras needed extra space to fit a mirror. However, as mirrorless cameras become more popular again, there has been a need to return to this industry standard…which is the impetus for the Samyang AF 45mm F1.8 FE. With less distortion than a 35mm lens and wider angles than a 55mm lens, the Samyang AF 45mm F1.8 FE is a perfect lens for portraits, landscapes, architecture photography, and pictures of pets.
