Hello to all my followers. I’m still here and I know I have not Posted anything in awhile, but there is not much going on right now, except this.
One of the Lens’s that I don’t have is a Wide Angle Lens. Decided to snoop around a bit and see what’s available out there. After looking around in my favorite place to order stuff, I found this Rokinon Wide Angle 14mm f/2.8 Lens for a very decent price. I read a number of reviews about it and found that most all of them were good. There were a few bad one’s, but the ratio between bad and good was not bad. Seems you can’t please everyone. So, I decided to order this for my Pentax.
It came in the mail yesterday. I was more than anxious to attach it to my camera to see how it looks and feels. It’s great, so far! Nice clear glass and no problem attaching it to the Pentax K10d. I did notice that it is a bit on the heavy side, but I’d rather have that. Cuts down on shake. The other small problem is that the weather here has been just plain terrible. Cloudy, windy, wet, and nasty for the past few days. This does not give me much chance to take it out for a test run to see how well it works. I’m hoping to “get out there” very soon. This Lens should complete my collection for a long time to come.
There is one more thing. The Lens Cover for it fit’s over the whole front of the Lens. This is different than my other Lens’s. All my other Lens’s have a spring loaded “cap” that just fit’s over the Glass. Not this one. I like the difference. Covers the whole Lens and not just the glass.
