100% manual

Manual focus is tough at first but Sony's af assist is useful. I wish there was some communication with the camera. This lens makes EXTIF and metadata useless. Takes some getting used to but the quality is great for the price

so good..

So far, so goodI've enjoyed taking landscapes with this lens on a recent trip to New England. I'm not so happy about the lens hood thoughthere is no resistance in twisting it on the end of the lens so it can move at the slightest whim and end up being part of your shot. That, or it's liable to fall off the lens entirely. Poor design in that regard.

I am fairly happy with the lens

I am fairly happy with the lens. Sharpness seems to be pretty good. Using focus peaking on my Sony makes it easy to get a sharp picture. It seems strange though that it's marketed as a 12mm lens when it's not a 12mm lens in any camera it will ever be used on. For those less experienced camera users this is really an 18mm lens which isn't really an �ultra wide like it's sold as.

Great landscape and astophotography lens - but watch out for bad copies due to quality control

This lens really stands out as a high quality and inexpensive lens in comparison to the competition in this focal length. Your other options are the Zeiss lens with slightly better optical quality for a lot more money or the Sony zoom that is lower optical quality and still expensive. This one is the obvious answer is you can deal with manual focus and manual aperture. If you shoot landscape or astro, you're likely focused at infinity all the time, so manual focus is not a big issue. However, it seems that Rokinon has poor quality control resulting in some lenses in the market that are not meeting the expectation of high optical quality. If you get a good copy, I highly recommend this lens. The first one I purchased felt like the infinity stop on the focus ring was not quite at the right location, resulting in shots that were passable but not quite sharp enough. I got it replaced for free through Amazon in two days. The replacement was sharp edge to edge but noticeably about one stop darker in only one corner, which is not acceptable to me.Pros:- A steal in comparison to other ultrawide lenses in the market- Good build quality will likely survive a few drops- Relatively small and lightweight- F/2.0 for this price, great for astrophotagraphy but not important for other disciplines like landscape- Focus ring feels great, not squishy or hard to get very precise focus- Can use screw on filters unlike some other Rokinon wide angle lensIn the middle:- Manual focus, you're probably parked at infinity anyway, but with focus peaking I can nail the focus fast- Manual aperture, I was shooting in A or M anyway, I actually prefer an aperture ring- No image stabilization, with such a wide and fast lens, image stabilization is not really needed, so why bother designing in an expensive feature?Cons:- No exif data because it's fully manual. It would be nice to have, but not absolutely necessary- Poor quality control! Make sure you get a good copyIf you're interested, here is cheap lens case that fits well(size small) https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B075LRNW8Q/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o02_s00?ie=UTF8 And psc=1

Very happy with my purchase. I really debated whether or not to get this lense since I had just bought a couple other lenses. I'm so glad I did. Perfect wide angle lense for my A6000. Great for a lot of things, but mostly showing size and scale.

Saving my money for a better wide angle and selling this

I used my lens for almost a year to get to same conclusion I had when I first tried it. It's not sharp. The 6300 kit lens is much sharper than this one. If you are on a budget and must have a wide angle then this might be your lens. Saving my money for a better wide angle and selling this.

Great wide angle for the E-Mount Crop Sensor. Used on an a6000 with a good tripod this $300 Lens cannot be beat. With landscapes I think the beauty is taking the time, enjoying the scene, and composing the shot you want. A full manual Lens is not only a great teacher but also a fun go to for �seasoned' photographers also. The images attached were taken with this lens and the a6000 (with ND Filter) more images on my Instagram @Richard.A.Taylor

Fun lens option to have. For the price it's a great wide angle addition to my Sony A6300's bag when out to do landscape and city photography.
