Samyang 14mm f/2.8
for Sony A7/A7R

The Samyang 14mm f/2.8 offers a ultrawide angle of view for the Sony A7/A7R. Since it is adapted from a DSLR design it has no ray angle issues, but is length includes (necessarily) a long rear end to account for the backfocal distance of its DSLR mirror box optical design

The 14/2.8 is a manual focus lens with fully manual aperture control—perfect for some types of shooting, inconvenient for others. It is not “chipped”—the camera does not know which lens, which aperture, etc; no EXIF data is communicated (which is the same as mounting a lens via lens adapter).

In Guide to Mirrorless under the Sony A7/A7R section are four aperture series with HD and UltraHD images for all apertures along with generously sized crops:
