    Keep an eye on 43rumors.com, they'll probably list sellers when it becomes available...

    Assuming this doesn't end up being terrible it's a must buy for me, MF not really an issue with Fisheyes and it's looking as though it will be about half the price of the Panasonic 8mm in the UK.

    I always wanted a fish eye. Man they just look like fun!! After I figure out how to get the money for the oly 45 this will be the next on my list of must haves.

    I've placed my order, hoping it's nearer the quicker end of the delivery estimate to make it to the UK (11-23 days)!

    It's selling for $439.99 US. On e-bay. I wonder if this price is above msrp or compettitive.

    Did you all see the virtual panoramas using this lens on the Samyang site? Home. Really nice!

    Wow, that panorama feature may be reason alone for getting this. Sure hope it's not really $500 US though.

    Judging by the sample shots, this lens is very good for a fish eye. Sharpness is amazing and CAs are on a low side. It means that you can create high quality rectilinear conversions with a very wide angle of view.

    This is a really nice lens, very compact and that fully embraces the spirit of micro4/3!!!

    I would be tempted to sell the Oly 9-18....

    £270 is the UK price, a straight conversion puts that at $432, so pretty similar.

    This was in my list of lenses to buy for m43 but at that price (> $400), I'll probably just adopt my Rokinon/Samyang fisheye Canon mount to m43. I hope prices go down to be more reasonable.
