A news from me:

Before yesterday our time [Wednesday 7 May 2014], i went to a photography exhibition which was in Dubai called "Dubai Photoworld", and it wasn't bad even not so much to expect there, so i walked around to see what products i may see new to me, not much i don't know except some models new that i am not interested in.

But, to my sudden, i saw a booth that selling Samyang lenses, so i checked out some lenses, i felt like how i didn't see them before or heard about them before?!!! I mean the dealer or the distributor, so i asked them about one lens, Samyang 14mm, and they told me it costs 1450 AED [that is about $385], i walked away and then returned back in about an hour or 2, then i told them, if they can sell it for me for 1300 AED then i am in, to my surprise the salesman or the person there promoting in the booth said ok no problem, so i bought this lens with red line for Canon Mount, so 1300 AED [translates to about $350] without shipping or any extra costs is really a winner, i wasn't sure if that is a good price and i may find it cheaper online, but when i just checked out few minutes ago i found that i bought it cheaper the online.

Also as an addition, i bought Samyang filter holder with it, i bought it for 50 AED [~ $13.5], it is a plastic looks cheap, but damn, at this price who cares about the design quality, now i have to start buying damn big filters.

hope i can use this lens on my Sony more often and also Canon, and i hope more i will post here something interesting.

major PITA to deal with such large filters, not really up for that. Really really wish 100mm were possible, dont want to buy a much of larger filters for 1 lens.

I agree, but is there another solution or choice then?

So many great photos in this thread! I finally bought a Rokinon 14mm a couple of weeks ago and I have really enjoyed using it.

Does anyone know why the Rokinon version of this lens is less money than the Samyang?
