    I was about to purchase one of these yesterday and then noticed that Overstock.com isn't an authorized dealer, and Rokinon won't honor the warranty if you purchase from them.
    Rokinon.com | Authorized Dealers

    Overstock also seems to get an unusually high number of bad reviews on the ratings sites.

    It's an outstanding price and I'm half-way ready to pull the trigger anyway. (You can't buy a used one on eBay for much cheaper, and if you did, it wouldn't have a warranty anyway.)

    I'm curious to know if anyone has anyone had issues/success with purchasing lenses from Overstock.com before?

    No problems here - bought my 7.5mm from them in the summer, arrived quickly and new in the box - I've never had an issue with overstock, bought a few things for our new home recently and everything went well with several purchases.

    I've been lusting over this lens for a while now, and I tried to get in on the Lightning deal but I was too slow. :( But with both of these discounts it's $15 cheaper than that deal as I don't have to pay tax. So thanks, rusteel and duke!!

    No lenses, but they are good about returns if you got a bad copy. A lens will not likely break down the road w/o abuse, especially a mechanical one like the Roki. BTW, $235.95 in my cart for a black one!

    Couldn't help myself. I Just pulled the trigger on the black model :biggrin: I had been eying one of these for a few weeks now and this is by far the best price i've seen. Thanks for posting :bravo-009:
