Samyang 12mm f/2.0 SAMPLE PHOTOS from Sony NEX5N

Samyang 12mm SAMPLE PHOTOS finally!

I was lucky enough to test the brand new Samyang 12mm f/2.0 wide angle lens for Sony NEX. This lens is so compact!

I've got some samples for you (taken with a 16mpix NEX5N):

The lens has a remarkable resolution. It is sharp at f/2.0, at f/8 it is razor sharp. It would be a good idea to test this lens on a camera that has more than 16Mpix resolution (my camera).
It is sharper than my Tokina 12-24 I have been which is a pretty damn sharp lens. Like the Tokina (or even more than the Tokina) it has considerable colour aberration around the edges - however I didn't have any trouble correcting it with a few clicks in the ACR.

Some full 16mpix resolution samples (aberration corrected):

Sample with an uncorrected aberration issue in the trees:
Unfortunately most ultra wide angle lenses have this issue. Luckily it is easy to fix nowadays so no problem there!

56: The Cheapest TILT LENS Ever! 65$

It's official now. I'm a terrible blogger, but I will try to make up for the silent months.

Over six months ago I bought Sony NEX and surprisingly it proved to be the best camera I have. I have recently purchased a 40$ tilt adapter for M42 lenses and a great M42 lens Cosinon 1.8/50 for 25$. This combo is really great and it allows me to make a whole lot of great photos each day. Just take a look at these snapshots and bear in mind that this great tilt lens cost me 65$!!! CHEAPEST TILT LENS EVER. Long live Sony NEX. (and other mirrorless, apart from the ones with tiny sensors)

Typical tilt miniaturization effect.

This lens has amazing bokeh and very little chromatic abberrations - both great for tilt use.
No particular purpose, just looks cool this way :)
The out of focus areas definitely add ambiance and build atmosphere.
This way you can pick out a subject and separate it from the background.
I was able to focus both on the background and the window I was looking through.
