27 March 2011

The week's almost ending. I finished work early today, so I took a little walk around the neighbourhood with the Samyang AE 14mm f/2.8.

Note: Some of the images in this entry are photoshopped, so it doesn't really count as images straight from the camera.

I haven't managed to use the lens much at all, so it was quite fun to explore new creative possibilities with this lens.

This is the worst flare result I could extract from the lens, by pointing it directly at the sun.

 The ultra wide field of view distorts space to the point where it can be a bit unsettling to view the image for long periods of time.

 This is what happens if you don't take care of your Perodua. The car on the right is just a few years old but yet it looks like it came out from a scrap metal workshop! :s

 This image illustrates the complex moustache shaped barrel distortion that the lens gives. Hence, this is not a very good lens for architectural subjects.

 The minimum focus distance is 0.28 m, which is pretty remarkable.

I hope all of you had a good weekend.
