Samyang AF 14 mm f/2.8 EF

9. Ghosting and flares

It’s true that wide-angle lenses with big, convex front elements often experience ghosting and flares problem. It was one of the biggest flaws of the first manual Samyang 2.8/14. The new model, tested here, surprised us in a very positive way. Of course you can’t call its performance perfect, far from that, but I admit we expected something much worse. Perhaps Samyang have improved the coatings, but we think reducing the number of groups of lenses helped in this category a lot. You get 10 groups in this instrument (so 20 air-to-glass surfaces) compared to 12 groups in the two first manual Samyangs and as many as 14 groups in the Samyang 2.4/14 Premium.
