I need something wide and heavy for my gh2 when flying. Should I get the Samyang 14mm 2.8, tokina 11-16 2.8 or the new slr magic Hyperprime 12mm 1.6

http://www.dpreview..../slrmagic12_1p6



im going with the tokina 11-16 in nikon mount after i take care of a few other purchases, the 12mm's are good lenses but im staying away from all m43 specific glass, especially expensive glass, just seems like a bad investment.

Would this work fine on my t2i with an adapter?

I'll sell you my 35 f2 ai-s (a sharper and better version of that lens) for a good price!

i don't like it in general. it's such an awkward focal length. almost wide angle and almost a 50mil. in 95% of situations either step back and get it in with a 50 or if it requires a wideangle use a 24 or wider.

shitty autofocus though. used to have a 24 2.8 and the non-usm autofocus system is loud, slow, and miserable to use. Plus no manual adjustment, you'd probably break the af motor if you tried to change focus while in AF mode.

Kinda wondering is there any micro 4/3 TO canon ef-s adapter ? I just want to know how samyang 7,5mm fisheye would look on a 7d , prolly it would be wider since 7,5mm fish pretty wide

Any adapter that would be needed to put m4/3 on a Canon would need a glass element which would just give you a bad start off. I'm sure that even with a proper adapter the lens will have hellish vignetting. I suggest forgetting about it as an option.

Yeh it simply won't work, the lens is designed for a sensor smaller than the one you are trying to convert it to.

MTF do and adaptor which converts this way round (c-mount to full frame), but it involves a glass magnifier. Not worth it for a sub $1k fisheye.

Does the canon 35mm f/2 have a nice focus ring?

if its anything like the 24 2.8, then no. Its not very smooth, its small, and its noisy for video
