Samyang/Rokinon/Bower

Hi,

Regarding the Samyang, Rokinon, and Bower lenses, are they all the same just with a different logo on the body? Do they all receive the same level of quality control and inspection in the factory? I assume they all have the same build, optics, and coating, correct? There's a pretty big price gap between some of them so I'm wondering if it's just name recognition or if the Bowers are less thoroughly checked before exiting the factory or something like that.

Thank you,

While I cannot confirm with 1000% certainty they're the same lenses with different skins, I do know they all sell reasonably well and very few are returned for complaints about quality control issues. They come in, they go out, very few come back.

Thank you. That's close enough to 1000% certainty for me.
