VERY nice use of tones, lines, & textures!
Thanks RT, I am trying to see more in B/W and learning what works and what doesn't. At least with raw I always have a back up.

I got this lens in December. I'm finding it very difficult to remove it from my X-T1. It is an amazing lens!
I just used it again last night to shoot video while biking in rain. It was complicated... had a plastic cover over the front bucket of the cargo bike, wife was pedaling, daughter and I sat up front, she held the cover over me. At first I was using the 18-55, but eventually I swapped for the Rokinon 12, and it was much, much better. The direct focus link (vs drive-by-wire), the extra stop (2 vs 2.8), and the calming effect of the extra width on bumps and motion... it was delightful.

I got the Samyang 12mm a couple of weeks ago, used it for street work in London.

As you have shown, in the right hands, it is a great lens!
Here are a few I got while driving north on Hwy 22 in Alberta.
Love that lens so much.
These are really clean images. The Roki and the Samy have me thinking. This may be my first purchase for the short haul. Very nice.
Is there any difference in the Rokinon and Samyang besides about 80 bucks on Amazon?
Not that I'm aware of. They seem to be made on the same line, and they apply a different sticker at the end. Mine's a rokinon, fwiw.
I bought one last week and just returned it - everything other than the centre of every image I took was mush, even stopped down. Guess I got a bad one, but it's put me off ever buying another Samyang.
Oh damn! Yes that was a bad copy, then, mine's razor sharp.

I like this and the Samyang 21/1.4
More of the 12's magical ability to make a lot of scenes more interesting...

Love the cat. Clever little thing, and asking so nicely by the looks of it
I've been wondering about getting a Rokinon 12mm for astro photography. I'm never going to get astrotracers and specialised gear, but for occasional shots of the milky way, it seems that 12mm might be just the ticket. or 10? or 8?
The rokinon/samyang 12mm is one of the most highly rated lenses for astro if you have an aps-c camera.

I've never read any other opinions about the Rok 12 for astro shots, but I LOVE mine for it. These are all shot exactly as you describe ... in-cam jpg, no tripod (propped on the bag on the ground usually), no special gear or software.
