There is a newer HD (Hood Detachable) version: http://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/896942-REG/Rokinon_hd8m_p_8mm_For_3_5_...981& Apparently they have the same optics. Is detachable hood the only advantage ?

Apparently that's the only advantage but someone could correct me if I'm wrong.

These are already on backorder, but ordering now seems to get you in on the deal price.

It was available last night when I got it. Most likely they're out of stock right now.

The removable hood is basically for use on FF as a circular FE. I take the hood off mine when I clean it probably not a huge deal. I don't think the old version has been made in a couple years so maybe this is a listing mistake?

It is offered in the deal zone for Canon as well for the same price so I doubt it is a listing mistake.

And it can't be used on FF without the detachable hood, correct??

It can, but the hood will crop the image circle to an inscribing rectangle.

With hood:


Without hood:
