There is so much on the plus side for the Samyang AF 18mm f/2.8 FE lens – it's affordable, really sharp, focuses fast and produces crisp, attractive images. Handling is superb. The only question marks are over the lack of weather resistance and the amount of flare against the light, but if these can...

Not overly impressed. This is my first venture outside of Sony lenses. This has a firmware fix isued to fix AF issues, the new lens doesn't have this installed. My options: Pay for a firmware loading station (£50) that can only be used with other Samyang lenses, or pay to have it sent to Samyang.

Wow & Wow!! Waited for this lens to complete my prime lens set up. Took it straight out of box on delivery & onto my a7rii. Lovely quality lens. Complements my Zeiss primes. Unbelievably light. Looks very classy with the red ring. The size is perfect for my set up.

I'm very impressed with this lens after first day of shooting on my A7ii. It's small, very light and sharp. For the money it's brilliant! It's not perfect, distortion and vignetting is obvious, and a little softer at the edges at f2.8.

Excellent wide-angle lens that you can throw in your bag and not even notice the extra weight. The sharpness and overall image quality are excellent mounted on a Sony A7Riii.

I have a 24-105 Sony G lens and wanted a wider angle for landscapes. The alternatives to this Samyang were wide zooms which were considerably more bulky and heavy. So much so as to erode one of the advantages of me having recently swapped from DSLR. This is tiny and weighs next to nothing. It complements 24-105 really well. I have used mostly at f8 where sharpness is fantastic edge to edge on A7Riii. Build quality is solid, not as nice feel as Sony lenses, and lens hood feels a bit flimsey. It has a filter thread so I can fit my ND and polariser with a small investment in a step up ring (not all the wide zooms do).

I picked up this lens from Camera world and I have to say I love it. The quality is miles and miles ahead of what I was getting from my Canon 17-40 F4L (I have just switch to Sony after 19 years shooting professionally with Canon). It's very light which can be seen as a pro or con and has no weather sealing. But what you are getting is a lens thats very quick to focus and really sharp even at F2.8. It comes in a nice pouch to protect it. you could moan at the lack of weather sealing and it's plastic construction but look at the price. I like so much I will soon be buying more Samyang lenses probably the 24 35 and 85.
