    I was a little late to the party. It's now out of stock.

    I just visited the site out of curiosity, currently says:

    Back-ordered
    Expected availability: August 29 2013

    I believe you can still order.

    That's correct, and I just ordered one.

    Backordered until "tomorrow" is fine with me, though I'll be impatiently waiting for the slow truck free shipping. :wink:

    My cash flow is low from all the lenses I’ve purchased, but the deals available for the m4/3 system are amazing.

    The Panasonic 45-175 for $210 from Amazon recently probably beats this offer, but any new lens for $200 seems a fantastic (if temporary) deal. Hope I can make some good, fun images with my first fisheye.

    Thanks for sharing the hot deal information! :thumbup:

    Great price! It *is* a fun lens. I picked up a Rokinon-branded at a higher price.

    I wonder why only the Bower branded ones are on sale and not the rest. Either way, I can't wait to use it for video with my slider.

    Bower, Samyang, & Rokinon as far as I know are basically the same.

    I'm very tempted by this deal and have been stalking the image thread, but I just can't bring myself to pull the trigger. So tempted!

    Price seems to have jumped to $249. At least that's what it was when I checked a few minutes ago.

    YES! Now I can go back to not being tempted by this lens.... was so close to pulling the trigger on this one, but just couldn't deal with the fishiness.

    Been thinking about this lens for some time, especially with a trip to Europe planned for later this year! Bought one yesterday at the $199 price! Even shipped internationally, it's still cheaper than local used prices.

    Thanks for the tip!
