Rokinon 85mm F1.4 - $239 ($50 off)
Posted By: Adam, 12-09-2012, 10:06 PM

This SKU isn't listed in the B&H search results, but it's one of the main deals for this week. Get the Rokinon 85mm F1.4 for $239! An absolute steal for a stunning portrait lens...

This is the same lens as the Bower/Samyang/Vivitar 85mm F1.4. It is manual focus but does feature auto aperture.

Didn't think anyone was going to go below $250. Mine's already on it's way to me from Amazon might even arrive later today.

Incredibly tempting even though I do few portrait photos.

The DA15, DA21, and one of the 100ish macros from Pentax, Sigma, or Tamron are on top of my LBA list.

I paid 299 for my copy and that new lens smell hasn't even worn off yet. I always buy too soon.

I've been buying the husband clothes over the last week. Several suits/ties/pants.
Hopefully his interviews will pay off and then...well..look out Rokinon/Samyang, I'm going to head for Moby Dick/The Great White Whale - a.k.a. DA 560 when it becomes spotted in the wild!!!

But for now...I have no money.

I will have to pass. Instead, I bought a K-01 with the 40mm XS and the DA*300. With the bundling on B&H, it worked out that I bought a DA*300 - and got the K-01 and 40mm for FREE if I take into account the latest discounts! That was a better deal!
