Update: attached are pictures of center/corners at 100% crop from copy 1 and copy 2, the second copy looks waaaay better and will do just fine for my skill level and hardware requirements, adding tow stars to my original 2-star rating.
Update2: using this lens in the wild I am very happy with having access to the amazing effect 14mm will produce in a full frame camera. That said, it takes some finesse to compose when there are people in the frame or when straight lines need to be preserved. Mustache distortion of this lens is very well corrected in RAW, jpeg shooters may want to look elsewhere. Attached are a few shots of night sky and some redwoods from NoCal. Notable is the flaring around omnidirectional light sources that renders as a rather large oval (seen in the milky way shot and moonlit landscape, could be due to lens fogging)
TL;DR: Lens is known to be great value, build quality is solid but DO expect to get a poor quality control and have to replace to get a good copy.
This lens exhibits what has been defined as a "mustache-like" distortion. Although it may not be noticeable in landscape or nature shots, it will definitely show up in architecture photos (or basically any scene with prominent vertical/horizontal lines). At first I thought it was a deal-breaker, but I then found out this can be easily corrected in Lightroom. You just need the correct *Lens Profile*.
I spent several hours researching on the subject and testing profiles available for download in photography forums and blogs. However, I found out that most of these profiles over corrected the lens distortion and some others basically made it worse. I ended up modifying the best one I found for an equivalent lens (you can find more info in http://bit.ly/1Insyfb , or just look for it in movingelectrons.net).
An important thing that should be noted is that the version for the Sony A7 (FE mount) does not match the picture in the item description. I have included a picture of the actual lens next to the Sony A7 for comparison.
This is a great lens that produces an outstanding image quality at a excellent price. If you don't mind the manual operation, it's one of the best options out there. I'm Knocking one star off because of its relative large size (with respect to their Canon mount option), the distortion and the fact that no EXIF information is passed to the camera.
