The focus ring is really slow on mine, is this normal for this lens? I have to use some force to move the ring. I have the Samyang 14/2.8 and that one is really smooth, similar to many Canon lenses I have used like 35L.

I was browsing Ebay for one of these lenses and find that the Rokinons sell for about $260, but the Samyangs and Bowers range from $380-399. Any specific reason for the extra $130 for the Samyang/Bower versions. The Vivitar seems to be in the $330 - 350. Is there a disadvantage tot he Rokinon verion?

I'm pretty sure they're all the same. I have the Rokinon one, for what its worth.

Thats what I had understood, I'm surprised in the price differences. Just wondering why. I didn't know if some brands included a focus confirm chip or something like that.

I must say, this thing has better IQ than the Sigma 85 I ended up returning. AF is just as useful as the Sigma's was, too. ;)

Nice shots, what do you guys think about buying one for my 20D?
I am managing to sort of MF my Sigma 24-70 because its AF is so unreliable.
Do i need anything to make it work properly?

I would recommend the Nikon version and get a Nikon to EF converter with AF confirm chip fitted as accurate focus on a 20D may be infuriating.

I may sell mine in favor of the Sigma 85. LMK if anyone's interested.
