I USED A SAMYANG 12MM F2 AF LENS
Today I was offered an unused Samyang 12mm AF lens at a very low price so I purchased it and then went to Leixlip in order to see how it performed.
To get to Leixlip I got a tram from Broadstone to Broombridge and then a train from there to Leixlip.
Leixlip is connected to the Irish railway network on the Dublin-Sligo railway line, running from Dublin Connolly to Sligo, with two stations, Leixlip (Louisa Bridge), opened on 1 September 1848, and Leixlip (Confey), opened on 2 July 1990, located at either end of the town. While InterCity services to Sligo do not serve the town, the Maynooth/Longford Commuter services do, the frequency of the trains peaking in the mornings and evenings. Some of these services continue outbound to Mullingar and Longford. Leixlip has the distinction of being the only town in the Republic of Ireland with two operational train stations.
I got off at Confey and walked via the village to Louisa Bridge and much to my surprise I had to wait about forty minutes for a train back to Broombridge.
