Bower 14mm f/2.8 is better than the 14mm f/2.8 AF-D from Nikon and the 14mm f/2.8 USM L (not the II version) from Canon.

Really? I ended up ona forum with everyone trashing it. Does that mean to say that it's GOOD? Got any good reviews or sources?

for $419 it seems to good to be true.

Reading now, Thanks.

I'm assuming no AF on a UWA wouldn't be a big deal. Aperture ring probably wouldn't be a big deal either as I'll almost always be in either 2.8 or like f/11.

I like my zoom UWA. 14mm just isn't always wide enough. Didn't take long to figure that one out.

EDIT: Yep, It's crap.

Also, Is there any optical difference between the 10-20 3.5 fix vs 4-5.6? I know the Fixxed will be good for video, but I'm not sure how much I'll be zooming in video anyways. :S
I read that the fixed aperture isn't as good optically as the variable one. But it might be just as good if you stop it down.

I'll probably stop by Henry's one day with my 60D and try out some lenes. 10mm to 14mm sounds like nothing, but it's 40% more viewing space. When I had my 18-55, I didn't ever feel like I needed to back up more, but at the same time, I didn't any better.

So is the "major" downfall of the Samyang 14mm the lack of motor's? I can't figure out the price. I just don't want to buy it and have something extremely disappointing pop up.

Hmm, a bit more than I thought. 1.5 stops is also quite a bit. I've ruled out getting the 3.5, just because of the price. I'm just hesitating because I want to use this indoors too. Hmmmm..
