What are best deals on 16mm F2 from Rokinon, Bower and Samyang?

Want one quite badly, trying to find anything better than $380.

It costs way more than that over here, where I live. I think its a good deal. You might save a buck if you buy the 14mm f2.8 instead. On the other hand, I have the 14mm, but the 16mm is still pretty tempting.. not as awkwardly wide, slightly faster, seems easier to handle, might be easier to focus.. Should be really great for landscapes and city photography

Just got one from Foto-Tip in Poland for EUR 325 plus shipping and it is ... breathtaking. But difficult to focus in low light with the standard screen. I'll post samples in a few days.

Update: for samples, test shots and first impressions, see my thread in the Lens Sample Photo Archive section: https://www.pentaxforums.com/forums/130-lens-sample-photo-archive/245944-samyang-16mm-f-2-a.html.

1sale has the Rokinon version in multiple mounts including Pentax for $300 (until tomorrow).
16mm Wide Angle Lens for $299.99 + Free Shipping on 1Sale.com

I haven't purchased from this seller before, but they get pretty low ratings (1 Sale a Day Reviews - 1saleaday.com Ratings at ResellerRatings). Expect items to take a month or more to ship. I probably would not buy from them given their reputation, but if you're looking for the lowest price...

If you are still interested, nobetterdeal.com has it for $321.99 with $3.95 shipping. They check out OK with Better Business Bureau. Here is their listing. Rokinon 16M-FX 16mm f/2.0 Aspherical Wide Angle Lens for Fuji X
I just agreed to buy the used one on the marketplace on this forum. Bill
