An interesting DA15 alternative, though quite massive at 570g. That price sure beats other stores.

Anyone used this seller? They also have the Rokinon 24mm tilt/shift at 30% off, which seems too good to be true.

Tempting. One wonders if this is where all the returned lenses to B&H and Adorama end up.

Rokinon packaging on lens?

I purchased one of the Rokinon lenses from this seller (35/1.4) as well a from a seller called OneSaleADay, LLC (16/2.0), both for $299.00, and both advertized as new. Both came in a fairly cheap box (albeit the Rokinon box), which appeared to have everything in it, but was not sealed. Does anyone know if that is the way Rokinon sells them (i.e. no sealing tape or wrap)?

I don't think it is. When I got my 35mm and 24mm, I'm pretty sure the boxes were at least taped shut.

My Rokinon 85 box had no tape - I'd guess it's legit oddly enough. Thanks for the heads up.

Interesting lens at a great price.
The SamYang 16mm reviews very well at LensTip:

Well, that's somewhat reassuring. But how do these sellers get the lenses? Gray market?

My '13 purchase of Bower 24/1.4 from B&H arrived in an unsealed box. All the contents were neatly wrapped and packed. No chips or creases in the finish of the box. No creases or marks in the internal plastic wrappers/bags. I would be very surprised if it did not come that way from the factory that way. My Opteka 85/1.4, purchased years ago, was packaged the same way.

This was really a tremendous deal! The 16mm looks and feels a step up for Samyang / Rokinon. Focus feel is smoother and well damped, also the hard stops don't have that "clunk" anymore.
This K mount lens supports the "A" setting on the aperture ring and in body iris control !
First shots @ f/2.0 look promising and quite sharp & I would def buy from this seller again!

The focus goes past infinity (as expected). I wonder if it can be adjusted like the one on the 14mm? Anybody tried??
