Excerpt: Images are sharp. Focus ring is smooth. It is a touch heavy . Also, since there is no auto-focus, it is best to focus through the LCD screen when you first start out. A great lens though. Durable.
Summary: Thought it was a good quality lens, but not what I needed. The company was very good about taking the lens back, although I have not seen the credit on my account yet. I would use this camera shop again as they were very flexible with thier returns.
Very good quality, no flares, no chroma! Best lens!

Summary: It is a great quality lens! I am very satisfied with it! Of course it is manual focus but if you are a videographer this is what you need. Also at f/5/6 or f/8 you can easiy use the manual focus making photos.
Don't be skeptical because of the low price. Rokinon lenses PERFORM !!!!

Summary: The obvious attraction of this lens is it's incredibly low price for a very fast prime that can do double duty as both a regular and wide angle lens if you own a crop and full frame body. The obvious question you must ask yourself is whether a manual focus and manual stop-down lens will do what you need.
