My delivery-guy visited me twice this week... got the shirt yesterday and the Samyang 2 hours ago... so of course I needed to replicate "some funny work" ;-)


So...Maybe I'll also replicate some funny work, hehe...

Are you from Italy?

I just received my Samyang 12mm from foto-klik.si for €299 (I'm from the Netherlands, and the price is including shipping)

It's a camera shop in Ljubljana - Slovenia. Orders can be payed by Paypal. 

It's send by GLS with a great track & trace

I really recommend them considering this shipment


OH, and it comes with a free Samyang 67mm protection filter ! (not that I use one, but it's the thought .. )

My Rokinon 12mm finally arrived!!! Yeah!!!


I could not test it out much today but I was able to take a few shots.


I went past this beautiful tree near my house the other day, so today i took a detour and stopped there for a shot.  Funny thing that I thought I was far enough, where I would usually stop for the shot, and with the 12mm I was infact pretty far away.  I took the shot below from this place.  I did crop a bit the shot, and did some editing in LR.

Then I realized I had to get closer, if I wanted to fill the frame with the tree, and took this other shot:

I actually should have gone closer, but the wife and kids were in the car waiting...so...some other time.


We went to the mall so I took some shots to test it out inside:

Last one was a stealth shot making of kind of.  The shot did not really come out that good. I did some cropping but this is in a really small elevator.  The possibilities...

Hello.  I have a question.  I was looking at my shots with the rokinon 12mm and the lens information does not show in the Exif.  I know that the lens has manual focus and can't send the aperture information either, but I thought that at least the lens information would be placed in the Exif.  Only the focal lenght is there because I included it manually in the camera.


Is there a way to add, in Lightroom, the lens information to the Exif?


Thank you.

So..I was doing another test shot with the Rokinon 12mm.  I decided to shoot out the window.  The shot below is straight out of the camera.  No editing.  ISO 3200, shutter at 1" and f/2.  Kind of handheld leaning against the window.  There is a black area on the top right.  That is a cross section of the net I have in my porch so the kids won't fall out.  You can also see it on the bottom left.


What do you think of the shot?  I was kind of impressed.  Not that good a shot really.  I should have done some straightening, but, I think it shows some cool possibilities. 


You might want to head over to flickr to see it larger.

For all the "bokeh lovin' flower close-up guys" out there: ;)


Cause of its minimum focus distance of 0,2m and the f/2.0 this lens has huge potential for these kind of shots!!! I really love the bokeh of this little ultra-wide-angle!!!!

The shots are slightly edited jpeg snapshots without any perspective correction. (for full size click the image and choose original size on Flickr)

Hope you like it.
