    Previously, I only dreamed of this, I looked at Tokinu 14-20 / 2, now I will look at this one. But I also shoot on Tokinu 11-16 of the first generation

    • Novel

      What's the use of looking at him? And what do you want from switching to manual 12/2 versus the existing 12 / 2.8 autofocus? I understand when there is a universal 12-24 / 4, but there is not enough aperture on the often used short edge, but I see no reason to take similar lenses.

        Haha, this Samyang is autofocus like many others. There are no analogues

        • Novel

          Ah, this is Sonevsky. Then all the more is not necessary.
