I got my samyang for AUD399 from an Oz ebay store. I think someone in this forum has pointed out that BIN deal a few months ago. I don't think he has any stock now.

Not that I should even be reading this thread, but just for sh*ts and giggles, how quickly or how close in does this lens achieve infinity focus? In other words, how useful would such a lens be pre-set to infinity focus and then snapped away at a low-light, indoor sporting event?

The markings on the lens indicate just over 15 meters.

Updated info:

My lens had a fault!!
Due to design failure or lubricate error, my lens stopped working correctly.

The lens would only go from f1.4 to about f4 or so....

Had to remove the mount and ad some oil. Lens now works great again

Only use acid free oil...!!!

Mine has the same problem, but I don't feel like opening it up myself, so I'm sending it in.
