In The Land of The 8mm Lens

I recently acquired the Rokinon 8mm manual focus lens with a Sony Alpha mount. I’ve been shooting with this lens as often as I can.

I love the way the lens renders an amazing amount of detail in focus, whether the subject matter be near or far. I love the curvature that the lens lends to any straight edge, almost as if on some spring.

The way the world seems to converge or diverge based on the angle of the lens in relation to the horizon is just so much fun to play with!
