Shattered My Expectations
“I can barely believe I am typing this, but this lens is one of the sharpest, highest-resolution lenses I have ever used. This goes for center, extreme edges, and corner to corner. To put things in perspective, I use it on a Canon 5D Mark II, and I own the 24-70 f/2.8L and 300 f/4L. They are different lenses to be sure, but I find myself zooming in to 100% and marveling at the detail this lens captures. It is actually astonishing. Chromatic abberation appears well-controlled, as is flare. The largest down side to this lens is the complex mustache/barrel distortion.” – by Happy Customer

Bower 14mm f/2.8 Specifications
The Bower 14mm Aspherical Wide Angle Lens is an excellent addition to any photographer’s collection. It allows users the ability to expand their creativity and capture incredible scenes from a truly unique perspective. This manual focus lens, when used with cameras with an APS-C image sensor, creates images with an expanded perspective, including images with a creatively deformed outlook and a sharp pan focus that extends throughout the entire frame.
Optical construction is based on 14 elements in 12 groups. 2 ED low dispersion lenses, one hybrid aspherical element and one glass aspherical element combine to minimize distortion and chromatic aberrations. Advanced optical construction allows this lens to deliver razor sharp images even in corners.
The 14mm f/2.8 works perfectly even with latest high resolution full frame sensors. The lens is optically corrected, which is especially useful in architecture and landscape photography and the 114 deg. angle of view allows the user to create extremely unique and interesting pictures.
