First look (and comparison) at the Samyang 24mm f3.5 T/S

I was hoping for a bit more performance wide open for playing with the tilt function. But the price is key and so far I only found a couple of international sellers placing a UK price in the £600+ ball park (possible VAT to add on top). Still, it is probably better than the Canon mk1 which on the used market is at a similar cost. I found the mk1 was never really sharp at any aperture.

As such, they haven't sold it to me, yet. Will wait and see how euro pricing develops as they become more widely available.

   Ephotozine has done a review which to me seems more favorable,claiming excellent resolution stopped down a little.
