    Having just changed my Rokinon 8mm f: 3.5 adapted to an 8mm f: 2.8 e-mount!

    A fun lens!

    It sure is getting harder and harder to not jump on one of these, especially with hiking season right around the corner.

    Wow...that has way less distortion than I was expecting! I just looked it up on B&H...not a bad price...but why is the black one 20 bucks more than the silver one??? :p

    You have to watch prices on these. They bounce all over the place all the time. No idea why.

    Interesting...I'll keep an eye on it!

    What's ridiculous is that Rokinon/Samyang/Bower/etc are all made right here (I'm living in South Korea right now) and I can't find them anywhere!!!
