Samyang 14mm t3.1 vs Tokina 11-16mm f2.8
on May 17, 2019 at 11:00:05 pm

'm trying to decide between the Samyang 14mm and the Tokina 11-16mm. I'm looking at these lenses because I need a very wide angle budget option with a wide aperture (and Canon's wides aren't exactly budget-friendly). I've seen a review for each of these lenses, and the main issues with each are:


The Samyang has issues with distortion and vignetting. Also, not to sound like a cliché youtuber, but its bokeh isn't great.

The Tokina has issues with soft and blurry corners and sometimes heavy chromatic aberration.


Samyang review:










Tokina review:










I'm leaning more toward the tokina but am worried that the problems with sharpness will render it unusable for a professional shoot, both for photography and videography.


Note: I am an amateur photographer/videographer who is just getting into paid jobs. I might be able to get away with these issues, since I will not have any high-end gigs for a while. Still, I want the footage coming out usable ☺

Any help is greatly appreciated!
