    I got an email from today saying they were in stock and ordered one immediately. I can't wait to go "fish"ing.

    That is significantly more tempting than the $430+ they were being sold for on ebay, thinking about replacing my pentax 10-17 fisheye with it (I love compact primes much more than zooms, even when it comes to specialty lenses!)

    Super cool, thanks for letting us know Jonathan!

    I wasn't familiar with the Rokinon name... same company or different brands for different markets?

    This price does make it very tempting. I am not sure how much I would use, but I really like some of the landscapes I have seen around here. The stuff that looks weird, but not quite to fish levels.

    I believe it's just the Samyang lens rebadged to Rokinon.

    Damn that's a good price, especially when you consider that optically it's as good as the Panasonic FE!

    Great price....! I got mine for around 350 at ebay since I did prefer the Samyang name although they are really the same.
