The Samyang Europe introduces new product to its offer - the SFH-14 filter holder designed specifically for Samyang 14mm 1:2.8 ED AS IF UMC lens. Together with the holder available will be also three rectangular filters manufactured by Cokin company.

Samyang holder SFH-14 has been designed from scratch for Samyang 14mm lens in standard and V-DSLR cine version. This solves the common problem of mounting the filters on a lens that does not have a filter thread because of specific optical construction. The holder is made of lightweight and durable ABS plastic. In order to eliminate internal reflections of light, its interior has been roughened and blackened in the process of flocking, giving it a velvety black color. The holder comes with double slideways to use one or two filters at the same time. Due to a rotatable construction of the holder, filters can be used both vertically and horizontally.

The holder goes with a filters. Three kinds of rectangular filters are sold separately, each of the format of 161 x 139 x 3 mm, specially designed and manufactured by the renowned Cokin company. These models are marked with symbols: 154 ND8, 121M ND4 and 123s, which equivalents in smaller size are available in Cokin’s company offer. Model 154 ND8 is a neutral gray filter of ND8 gradation that allows to slow shutter speeds and to blur moving objects (e.g. clouds, water, traffic). It will be also often used by filmmakers who want to get a shallow depth of field in strong sunlight. Half-normal 121M ND4 gray filter is mainly designed for landscape photography and architecture. It allows to reduce the contrast between light and dark part of the frame. Third of the available - Cokin 123S, is a half-normal blue filter that can be used to obtain or highlight blue sky effect in the landscape photography.

    Nice idea but what a monstrosity.

      But probably necessary. I have a filter thread on my 10mm APS-C lens and I’ve tried everything to get filter holder out of frame but without success. I could literally see through the lens what is on a backside of a filter holder. Photographer must be very careful to hide all parts of his body from the frame when shooting with those kind of lenses :-)

        Agree. This is perfect for such a wide lens.

  • mr.four

    Can’t wait!

    LOL. This is why you design lenses to take inline filters!

    • Remedy

      LOL. This is why you have no fking clue about designing lenses!

  • Ken Elliott

    I bet I’m not the only one to wonder if I could adapt it to a Nikon 14-24/2.8.

  • camaman

    pfffffft…. Too small
    EPIC FAIL!

    -irony-

    do you think it’ll work with the Panasonic 7-14mm f4?

    • Neopulse

      Dunno. Although it is around the same focal length. You could send them an email. Chances are you’d be helping them realize that it may work and expand their market towards another lens. Or you could juryrig an adapter that just holds it.

    I think this will wind up on a lot of other lenses.

  • gogolo

    Been waiting for this!!!! I know how good this lens is. The thing thats keeping me from buying the lens is because it cannot adapt filters. Now!!! OMG! I just hope the price is not too high…. and cokin? com’n! use Lee!!!

    Does anyone other than Nikon users use Samyang lenses? Especially Canon users? For some reason Samyang doesn’t give anyone other than Nikon not only auto aperture, but chipped lenses. Seems kinda crude shooting stop-down in this day and age. I think most Samyang lenses are great, but I feel bad for anyone not on a Nikon using them.

  • NancyP

    I use the Samyang 14mm on a Canon. It’s just a manual lens, no big deal. The field of view is pretty distinctive, so I don’t need to scratch my head when reviewing frames. The one irritating thing is the lack of aperture recording in the exif.
