It seems they have fixed the softness issue on the release version. I'm debating on if I need anything wider than 35mm.

Where have you read this? Got any links? I'd be interested in this lens if they have fixed the softness issues.

Is this only with the Samyang brand? Or are Rokinon lenses "fixed" too? Because I could snag that one on Amazon right now.

Furthermore, where can I purchase this lens that has been "fixed"?

This is where I was thinking of buying, as long as it's the "fixed" version.

This. I have a 28mm too, but am trying to think if I want a 24mm instead. I would probably get the Olympus 24mm over this though. It seems way to pricey for the image it produces.

There are samples on Rokinon's FB page as well as Flickr I believe. Sadly from what people are saying is that at F1.4 it gathers in less light when compaired with the Canon 24L II. And that 699 price tag is turning alot of people off.

Really wanted this lens too. But now I might just save up for a 24L mkI or mkII

I seem to have lost the link where I chatted with Samyang Asia's facebook page, they said the old version had the weakness at f1.4, the new Samyang is improved to match or beat Canon's 24L wide open in terms of t-stop, sharpness, etc. Also, there is no way of telling the updated versions from the old ones, but Samyang did not release the old version, only Rokinon from what I know. Lastly, when the updated version was released, they claim to have lowered the price on all Manual Focus 24mm f1.4's. I don't know what the old price was, but the new seems obtainable by us mortals.

The old version was/is going for 699USD which made everyone cringe. Well, I hope they get those new models out. And if all goes well, I would love to pick this lens up (the fixed version) and give it a try.

I chatted with Samyang Asia's Facebook page (https://www.facebook.c​om/fotogears (external link)) about a month and a half ago. I was confused on all these releases and updates that I needed clarification.

I just ordered my new Samyang 24mm f/1.4
Just sold the Canon EF 24mm f/1.4 L II
Hopefully this will be better for long exposure night images.

Photozone review just came out. He quite likes it, although he says contrast isn't that great until you get to F2.8. He didn't test bokeh, however, which I am curious about.

I see you have the 24mm Mk II listed in your gear, how do think the Samyang lens compares as far as IQ. Not so much concerned with build quality. Ive have been considering this lens for quite sometime but have not seen any pictures or videos shot with it.
