Pointed to by contributors to these forums, and confirming their advices through other readings, I have been trying to make myself familiar with the reviews by dxomark.
In particular, I have been recently looking at the review of the Samyang 14mm f/2.8:
http://www.dxomark.com/index.php/Lenses/Camera-Lens-Database/Samyang/14mm-F2.8-IF-ED-MC-Aspherical-Nikon/%28camera%29/792/%28cameraname%29/Nikon-D800
There is one point in their evaluation which, to my embarrassment,I fail to make sense of: transmission. I read the elucidations on the website, but I don't know how this translates into the practice of the lens' use value. Do you know about this, or cam you tell me where to read up on this?

Also, is there someone who has experience with this lens? It seems to be supersharp, but otherwise not so well corrected. Well, for that price...
