According to the lens database, this lens indeed has the A setting. Perhaps B&H needs to update their photo!

i have the pro-optic version, bought at Adorama, it has an A setting, as does the Vivitar Version that I also looked at.

can't swear on the true Samyang marked version or Bower or Rokinon, but I doubt they differ

I have the genuine Samyang branded one and confirm it does indeed have the A setting.

I have the Bell and Howell. I think all their K mount lenses have an A setting. I also had the Rokinon 14 at one point.

Yes, the picture is probably reused from the Canon listing.

Most (may be all)Samyang lenses have A setting for Pentax, Nikon, but not for Canon.
