Samyang 10mm vs 14mm

I'm interested in a fast wide angle primarily for landscapes and astrophotography. The review on Pentax forums indicates the 10mm is sharpest at f4.5 (slow for astrophotography). I have read great things about the 14mm. I'd prefer the ultra wide as I already own the sigma 17-50, but I'm torn as there aren't a lot of reviews of it yet. Anyone want to give their opinion on the two lenses?

Can a lens be both SHARP and bokeh-liscious?

Rokinon (samyang, etc) 85mm f1.4. I love the look and it's crazy sharp wide open IMO if you nail the focus.

K-5 IIs: $596 at Adorama

The price and what's included keeps fluctuating on both B&H and Adorama. This morning, Adorama had the package (body+grip+64gb+4% rewards+free 2 day ship), but now their deal does not include the extra goodies. However, B&H's listing now includes the grid and memory card for the $596 price, but does not include 4% rewards. Act now, or keep your eye on both sites if you're interested.

Mold spot on lens

I'm interested in the fa 24 currently offered in the marketplace for $380. Listing mentions a spec of mold or mildew. What's everyone's thoughts on that? Should I expect it to get worse over time? What's it cost to get it cleaned? How does something like that affect pictures?

Thanks for any advice. Less than $400 seems like a steal for the fa 24.

Thanks for everyones feedback. Its a pentax-fa 24mm. KEH has them in excellent condition for about $650. So $500 is a lot to me, but slightly discounted for current used price.

I'm looking at a used lens online that says it has a spot on the SMC coating. The seller claims it doesn't affect pictures. Is this something I should be concerned with? It's a relatively expensive lens (for me).. about $500.

Thanks!

oh man decisions decisions. i'm liking my 40mm xs a lot, but it's a little slow for low light, and a little close for "walk around". the 35 is only a tad faster and little wider. the 50 is fast enough, but a little tight for me liking. so do I get both, or neither (wife votes neither) :)

The thing is, $985 is a very good price, but its not outrageous. Amazon (direct, not a separate store) has it on backorder for about $150 more.

For the most part customer service was very polite but a couple times she said I was "cashing in" on the mistake [by taking the $150 discount and still returning the first order] at the end she said she waned to reiterate that this is a special case, one time thing. I told her I hope it is on her end as well [selling something and not delivering].

Update: body came no lens; spoke with Dan on chat yesterday who said they'd ship the missing lens pending they have them in stock. I called today and warehouse has them but won't honor the price mistake. After pushing them, they offered $150 off the lens and will refund the original order. So I didn't get the great deal but should be getting the lens for $328 (about what it goes for on the marketplace forum).
