Bower (Samyang) 35mm F1.4 - $239
Posted By: Adam, 02-13-2017, 10:07 PM

This lens regularly trends around $460, but I think the Bower brand is being discontinued in favor of Samyang and Rokinon, so you can get a really nice deal on the lens:

Judging by the prices it's just the K mount model which is being discontinued, the other mounts are much more expensive.

I real bargain.

Yeah, but just the brand, not the lens. They prefer Rokinon in the US.

Yep, those Samyang rebadges often depend on region. But now that Samyang is so well-known, there is no need for so many rebadges.
I don't see that low low price, though. For me, the link still shows $549. At half price its a good deal

Looks like someone snagged the cheap one- there was only one left last night. Was a steal!
