For the person that asked about * quality. Optically, it is pretty close to the Pentax A* 85 1.4 whether people want to admit it or not. The A* is sharper wide open to about 2.8 and then it is a wash. The Pentax is a nicer build, and has a hint cooler colors (aka perfect), but the Rokinon/Samyang is a stellar lens for its price. To the person who asked about the blades - read the reviews, no it does not have 6 blades. The bokeh is dreamy from this lens.

I figured I couldn't go wrong for the price. If it turned out that I didn't like it/use it, then I could sell it down the road for what I paid for it.

I would say it is very close to being as good as my DA*55 1.4.
I really enjoyed mine, but I sold it to pay for my DA 55. I probably will be getting one again.

A great deal

If I had a few extra dollars I'd jump at this deal. My ancient Vivitar Series 1 90mm f/25 lens could use an update and this would be perfect.

Are all Rokinon/Samyang lenses have 6 aperture blades?
The Rokinon has 8 aperture blades and is a auto aperture lens (has electric contacts that allows it to communicate with the camera, ie Av and Sv and flash compensation modes ).

If only my credit card was paid off from the purchase of the Sigma 17-70.

My first attempt at a transaction with Adorama.
Went through to their Ebay store and it kept asking me to change my address.
However, it says clearly it ships to Canada.
I sent them a message and this is what I received;

Hello,
I apologize but it seems our Ebay store has a glitch in the system and is having problems shipping to Canada
and we are unable to ship to your location at this time.
Thank you for your interest.

Well, that was fun.

I got my lens today! It is hefty and very nice.

The shipping - it was packed in the Rokinon box with it's plastic standard cell-pack inside the thin cardboard box. That box was put into a mylar mailing envelope. There are so many ways that shipping could have gone wrong! The lens is in fine condition, as is the box, but I think I just got lucky.

When I bought my lens from B&H the lens box was packed inside a cardboard box with extra large cell-pack wrapped around it. Much more secure.

Is this common with Adorama shipping? This is the first time I've ordered from them.
