Ebay has 10% off if you use ebay mobile app for android or iphone.

Edit: I just bought one for $193.50 shipped after mobile app coupon. Thanks for the heads up!

You had to buy through the mobile app, but that was June 29th I bought mine-it is likely expired.

Back up to $299!

But there is a second listing for HD8M-P (vs. HD8M) that is $279. What is the difference? Or is "P" or Pentax mount, and it's the same lens?

Guess I didn't notice that this fisheye isn't the one I thought it was. I wouldn't get this one without aperture electrical control.


This one with aperture control communicates properly to digital cameras and is easier to use. Sorry for the confusion:

Rokinon FE8M-P 8mm F/3.5 Fisheye Lens for Pentax AUTO APERTURE

OK if you want this ALL manual version, but I'd wait for the auto aperture version to come down to $215 or so

So you're saying that the one shown on ebay does have auto aperture? The one shown on the listing doesn't have the "A" mode on the aperture ring. It doesn't have the button next to the "A" to change auto-manual aperture either.
How about yours?

The one I bought (from original listing) has removable hood and auto aperture.

New listing does not say removable hood, so I'm assuming it is the old version. I did not know it was manual aperture looking at the photos it appears manual.

I wish they'd have a sale on the 85/1.4
