DON'T be...and look no further. YOU have found your lens.
I finally bought this after a very successful landscape photography told me this was the lens he used for his amazing, incredible night sky shots. (Andy Porter, featured in numerous magazines). I've only had it a couple of weeks and haven't had an opportunity to get out in the wilds for a milky way shot...but I HAVE been hiking and used it around my home to experiment with it and I have incredibly impressed. I have NO complaints.
Yes...it is all manual, and I hate to admit that I am one of those people that have more camera than they know how to use. However, this lens is forcing me to learn what I should already know, and it's making me a better photographer.
Features to note:
*Manual. With the Nikon D7000 (and I would imagine a lot of the other models) you have to set it to A and the apperature all the way to 22 in order for it to work. (otherwise it flahses a EE error)
*Amazing f-stop ranges. from 2.8 up to 16
*If you are going to take daytime sky shots, you will want to invest in filters. This lens is very light sensitive and washes out easily. However, if you get in the right lighting and set up your frame right....holy smokes. (I am attaching examples of what I have taken to show you what I mean)
*This is a FIXED lens. You can not zoom in or out. It is SET at 14mm
*Yes, the lens cap is large....but hey, it looks cool.
For the price, it simply can't be beat. It's easy to spend a couple thousand on a wide-angle...but I don't know if they'd be any better than this!!

== Build Quality & Cosmetics ==
Mine has a red band by the aperture wheel rather than a gold band near the front.
The plastic of the body feels decent and has a slight texture similar to Nikon lenses adding a quality look.
The rear mount might not be metal, it might be metallic coated plastic? Many inexpensive lenses have plastic mounts, I doubt this is an issue reliability.
The front cap is actually pretty sturdy. People who are complaining it falls off may not realize you have to press the levers when you put it on to lock it.
I don't know why people are complaining about the protruding front element or inability to use filters.
Anyone can clearly see that's the case in the product photos so to complain about it and take stars off after the fact is unreasonable. What full frame 14mm lens do they propose using with filters?
The build in lens hood is great. It's sturdy and cut well and does a tremendous job stopping flare.
The lens hood petals also extend well past the front element and provide good protection allowing you to (if want) put the lens face down on flat surfaces.
== Handling ==
The focus dial moves smoothly with good resistance and nice firm stops at the limits.
The aperture selector is smooth but the detents are not as crisp as I'd like.
The lens has a heft to it, without being unwieldy at all. It's easier to handle than my Nikon 16-35mm was.
The provided rear cap fits firmly on mine.
The soft draw string bag is of incredibly poor quality and it would be better if it wasn't included as it "cheapens" the package.
== Image Quality ==
Everything to be said here is regarding use at f/5.6 and smaller. The lens is a bit soft with pretty serious vignette wide open.
It's actually quite sharp. I'm fairly impressed with that. It's much better than I expected.
The corner sharpness is much much better than I expected.
My copy doesn't suffer any axial alignment issues which have been noted by others.
The color reproduction seems imperfect, with a slight cooling effect. Certain colors seem more altered than others, which could make it hard to correct.
Vignette is quite bad at f/2.8, and certainly impacts metering. I recommend against using Matrix / Evaluative metering with this lens.
As other reviewers have noted, the distortion is pretty horrendous.
== Auto Exposure Compatibility ==
The lens is built with 1 click between full stop markings. I assume it's adjustable in 1/2 stops. However my D600 reports no change when half way between stops.
The AE chip seems not to work quite right and under exposes images by 1.33 to 2 stops when using Matrix metering. Spot metering seems to run 2/3 - 1 stop.
If I remember this it's just a matter of setting the exposure compensation.
== Focusing ==
Focusing this lens is easy. The DoF on 14mm lenses, even at f/2.8 is pretty wide.
Most importantly it's possible to set the lens at a hyperfocal distance and just leave it at that and shoot without further focusing.
The chip based focusing indication is quite good, just focus back and forth until the camera indicates the lens is focused (if your camera supports that.)
The focus distance markings on the barrel are quite good. The ones on my lens aren't 100% accurate closer than ~18" although they still produce sharp results, just a little less than than the chip based focusing.
