I purchased the same lens from the same seller. It cost me $50 more than this deal. My sale was satisfactory. I would do business with them again.

Well...I don't know about this one

I rented this lens from lensrental.com. Now perhaps the one I had was inferior, but really, I found it was pretty soft all over till f/5.6! When I sent it back they tested it and said it was fine. Maybe it was, maybe it wasn't. Price is right and it's an f/2....but?

I'm hanging out for a deal on the 14mm version, of any of the Samyang/Rokinon/Bowers etc varieties.
I see they have a 10mm version also now.
Manual focus is fine for me, and these get body adjustable Aperture ability in the Pentax mount also

"only" 24mm equivalent? Thatīs the point where ultra wide definiton starts.

normal: arround the diagonal of the film / sensor (43mm eq)
Wide: equal or shorter than the long side of film/sensor (36mm eq)
Ultra wide: Equal or shorter than short side of film / sensor (24mm eq)

Fair enough, in my mind 24mm is not that wide at all

But it is.. The definition is based on the horizontal angle of view of the human eye (arround 44°) so a normal lens gives thaf horizontal AoV. A 24mm eq will give arround twice as much 88°, thatīs a lot...

Not as good a deal, but this lens is now available for $365 from Adorama via eBay:

Rokinon 16mm F 2 0 Ed as UMC CS Lens for Pentax K APS C Mount Cameras 16M P | eBay

And on their regular site, too:

http://www.adorama.com/RK16WAPX.html

Hmmm... I've got the DA* 16-50 f/2.8 but this is kind of interesting.
