  1. Hi David!
    I have a Samyang 14mm on my Sony A7r today. I am thinking that I would buy the new Voightlander 15mm for e-mount instead. Do you know how Sharp the Voightlander is compared to the Samyang?

    The main difference is the the Voigtlander has nearly perfect geometry, while the Samyang has a very moustache-form wavy horizon; also, the Voigtlander is likely to be consistently sharp from copy to copy, where the Samyang may vary a lot and getting a good lens is a lottery. I’d have to rate the Voigtlander example I have used as much sharper than the Samyang. But there’s a new AF Samyang in dedicated FE mount on the way and who knows what this will like? We will be getting one to test.

    Hope this gets to David! but not to comment on your equipment posts. I am glad to see someone posting about the A7 series and lenses available. I have had my A7s for 1 1/2 years and no real place to view tests before buying. And will subscribe to a magazine that has good info on uses and operating mode differences. I got the A7s due to it’s 5 frames @ +/-3 ev for HDR use and moon and Landscape but also have found the dynamic range is just as good without HDR methods as I play with different shots. Will follow your posts and thank you for sharing!
