Hi all, was wondering if anyone ever heard of this brand? I know the Rokinon/Samyang/Bower brands are all the same for the most part, this seems to have all the same comments in the description and actually says it comes with a 1-year Rokinon warranty!

Anyone have this lens or had it?

Thank you very much, but that does not answer my question. I know that the Rokinon / Samyang / Bower lenses are all the same, I am trying to find out if this Bell Howell brand falls into the same category? I see no mention of it at all here on POTN, and Google does not help much either.

Guessing I will just have to get it and test it out for all of us here. I read somewhere that the coating was not the same on the glass but that was all I found...nothing more.

Wish I could find more! It is $80 less than the Rokinon, good deal if it is the same...
