Excerpt: Solid, well built, long-lasting; these were my first impressions when I opened the box. The manual focus ring was wide and smooth making it easy to get exactly where you want. The manual aperture ring clicks comfortably for easy counting of stops.
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: I bought the Rokinon 35mm for Canon on a Lightning Deal and I got a bad copy of this lens because all my test shots came out horribly. Very bad optics at f/2, which is where I will use it for night photography.
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. Or just use the live view for focusing at f/1.4
