There will soon be a new option for people looking for an affordable ultra-wide-angle lens. Yongnuo is reportedly set to launch a 14mm f/2.8 lens with autofocus capabilities.
Nikon Rumors reports that the lens is coming “soon” and that pricing and availability are not yet known. It’ll likely be available for Canon and Nikon DSLRs.
Here’s the design of the upcoming 14mm lens and its MTF chart:
The Sigma 14mm f/1.8, Rokinon 14mm f/2.4, and Rokinon f/2.8 lenses are three options that are currently popular among landscape and astrophotographers looking for third-party options. The Rokinon 14mm f/2.8 costs $259 but is manual focus only.
