Samyang AF 14mm F2.8 Canon RF Image Gallery
December 21st, 2019
When Canon released the Canon EOS R full frame mirrorless camera last year it arrived with a fair bit of controversy. There were some key areas where Canon lagged behind the competition despite offering some innovation in other areas. My consensus (largely echoed by other reviewers) was that there was a lot of potential there, and the early Canon RF lenses were excellent, but more work was needed. Fortunately, Canon has continued to support the EOS R and expand it’s capabilities via firmware along with delivering more and more outstanding lenses. There’s been another problem, however, and that is of the ten RF mount lenses from Canon at this point, only two fall under $1000 in their MSRP, with the majority of the lenses (7 of them!) being in excess of $2000! Canon desperately needs more financially accessible lenses for a broad rollout of the R system, and to date third party support had been reserved to a handful of manual focus lenses. Fortunately, that seems about to change, and leading the charge is Korean lens maker Samyang (also sold as Rokinon) with this lens – the Samyang AF 14mm F2.8 lens in an RF mount. This is an autofocusing lens (and one that autofocuses very well on the Canon EOS R that I tested it on) along with having a beautiful, weather sealed build. It delivers an extremely wide angle of view that is wider than any other lens on the platform and comes with a more approachable price tag of $699 USD. I’ll be delivering a detailed analysis of the lens in my review (stay tuned!), but in the meantime you can get a sense of the kinds of photos you can produce with a wide angle optic like this.
