    just ordered a used rokinon 7.5mm micro 4/3 fisheye from amazon .used 5 times $234.99 shipped.thought it was a decent deal ,figure if i don't get the hang of it , won't be hard to get most of my money back.you can get some decent prices on used lenses on amazon if you keep checking.

    Great price on a great lens.

    You should be able to get all of your money back. I don't think I've seen one yet on a forum board.

    Hopefully you'll like it though. :smile:

    Third party seller is not "from Amazon." My girlfriend is technically "from Amazon," as she routinely sells books there. Anyone that wants to sell something there can do so, so don't consider it to be any more reliable than buying from Craigslist or ebay. And "used 5 times," is that like when you go to buy a used car, and the salesperson tells you that the car was only ever driven by a little old lady, and only on Sundays? ;)

    Congrats! I just received my copy the other day and have been really impressed with it. Don't let others rain on your parade, hope you get as much out of yours as I'm already getting from mine.

    I have one I think I paid $320 for. Definitely worth it. I don't use it much, but its inexpensive enough to keep and when I do want to use it, there's nothing else like it...

    I'm also planning on getting this in the future. I actually have the Canon mount version that I can technically just adapt to m43. But the small form factor of the native m43 mount is just sooo tempting.
