Bower 14mm f/2.8 Review
Wow. A brilliant lens to say the least, sharp from edge to edge, with very little to no distortion. This lens has really allowed me to take creativity to next level, and gave me tons of depth of field to play with!
It is a full manual lens, with a manual aperture ring from f/2.8-22. It is almost impossible to nail the focus without using focus assist, but for film purposes I’m perfectly alright with it. Its focus ring allows you pull focus without even thinking, and do it smoothly at that.
Can’t wait to throw it on a glidecam!
At $370 off of ebay. Its got some real bang for your buck.
Pros: Sharp, color, f/2.8, focus ring, high quality build
Cons: Heavy, no AF
