Focusing on the Samyang 8mm f2.8
Posted: 30 Sep 2012 at 20:09 GMT
For the people with the Samyang 8mm f2.8 (E, NX, X), my sample lens is focusing past infinity. I find best focus at the 2m mark. Is anyone getting the same results?

I work with samyang 8 mm lens it is manual focus .at f8 it is best focusing.Angle of View: 167 degrees . Minimum Focusing Distance: 0,3 m . At f/8

It's the same as at f/5.6: excellent all over.
