Question about Samyang Cameras

Open Question

Samyang 14mm lens does not focus to infinity.

When the focus is set all the way (past) infinity, the focus is still on something closer than the horizon. Stopping down helps, but does not solve the problem.

Sounds like the autofocus motor is having issues, I'd suggest contacting Sigma.

Why does focus ring hit some type of stop?


Hi.
There is a problem inside your lens. It can be a flexible PCB (printed circuit board) or screw out of possition, so the focus moving parts canĀ“t complete the range.
If the infinity focus gets at 3ft, there are also some optical group loose. That is the reason infinity position is located closer than it must be.
Send it to a Sigma Service.

First auto focus SLR. Does not focus well in low light. Put on manual focus at infinity setting on lens scale, and put camera on tripod and set the lens to something likeF8. Set exposure time to different settings and see which one works out best. You might also check your local library from one of the Kodak guide books (low light photography, etc.)

I can't get the lens to focus at all on any close up setting manual or auto. I have been trying to take pictures of flowers and insects with it set to close up and I have tried also with it on manual...


The 70-300mm lens won't focus closer than about 5 feet (1.5 meters). If you need to get closer, there are several alternatives. Here are some in descending order of cost (and picture quality).

A special "macro" or "micro" lens. Some lenses are designed to focus closer than others.

Extension tubes. These are tubes that fit between the lens and the camera body. By putting more distance between the camera and the lens, the focus point moves closer to the camera.

Close-up lenses. These are like filters in that they screw onto the front of the lens, but act like a magnifying glass.

I own a Nikon D5000 and am experiencing issues with the 55x200 lens. When trying to take a picture (on auto mode) of an item that is too close, I am hearing a squeaky noise (like the noise made my a VCR...


The 55-200mm lens does not focus closer than 1.1 meters (3.6 feet). If the subject is too close, then the autofocus tries and fails to focus or keeps trying (and squeaking). Either way, you won't be able to take a picture. In manual focus, you can take a picture but it will be out of focus and blurry.

Every lens has a minimum focus distance, closer than which it will not focus. Some lenses focus closer than others. It's a matter of design; making lenses focus closer makes them larger, heavier, and more expensive.

If you want to take close-ups, you have several options. You can buy close-up adapters that fit onto the front of a lens. You can buy a special close-up lens ("macro" or "micro" lens). You can buy extension tubes to fit between the camera and a lens.

When taking photos up to 4meters are ok, anything over that and they are blurred


You haven't stated the make and model, but you have probably left your camera set to "macro" mode. This is used to focus closer than the lens can usually do and when in use the lens cannot focus on infinity (distant objects). If there's no button or menu item labelled "macro" the standard icon for it is a picture of a flower with the stem and two leaves.

Please report back with the make and model of your camera if this fix doesn't work, but if I have fixed your problem then please let me know by rating my answer.

Focusing to infinity


Hey redbarnz,
If the lens won't focus to infinity then there is probably something physically wrong with the lens. With the dominance of digital equipment you can find fantastic deals on manual focus 35 mm lenses. I would look at Canon manual focus lenses rather than sticking with vivitar. I hope this helps!

Sincerely,
Allan

Using the lens


As long as the lens mount is compatible with the Olympus e410, you can use this lens.

It will only be limited by what features are supported through the camera body - I suspect that you will have to do everything manually.

Good luck.

Unsure of how to use the extra functionality


That is the focusing ring. I'm guessing your camera is set to focus automatically (Little switch on the side of the lens should have settings for either AF or MF, or something similar.)

If its on AF, you don't need to adjust the focus ring.
However, if you have problems with the AF (sometimes it has trouble, especially in low light) you can switch it to MF, and focus manually by changing the ring.

As a general guideline, the more you twist to towards macro, it focuses closer and closer, and infinity futher away (if you're taking a shot of the moon, you want it on infinity)
