Rokinon SMC 35-135 mm Lens

Recently I bought this lens.
I was trying to find some info about it in Internet, but found just for Rokinon 35-200 mm.
I am curios if it is something unique or just simply missed by users.

I was impressed by quality of the lens especially of how it is made. The picture quality is not too bad either.

Thank you

I have a Rikenon (Ricoh) 35-135, quite nice; have not heard of Rokinon having one. My lens is quite good for its push-pull vintage, of many I have tried only a Vivitar 28-105 has bested it.

Hi Jim,
They are not the same.

I should've done that at the beginning...Here it is more info about the lens.

Being a nit-picker, I'll point out that you have a MC (multi-coated, a generic term) lens, not a SMC (Super Multi Coated, a Pentax trademark) lens.

As noted, Rokinon isn't Rikenon; and it isn't Rokkor, either. It is a brand name that plays upon / exploits a similarity to the more famous names, like being called Pintax or Cannon. I have a couple Rokinon primes, 28/2.8 and 135/2.8 in PK-M mount, and they're cheap and OK.

The Rokinon badge is slapped upon some OK modern lenses, made by Samyang I think. I am agnostic towards Rokinon -- no love, no hate, no emotion of any kind. Whatever.
