Top customer reviews
I've had a couple of other Samyang/Rokinon lenses, wide-angles for astrophotography, and they're great. I wouldn't hesitate to buy another one, and if you're in doubt, hey, give it a try. You know Amazon will take it back, and I think you'll be very pleased--with this fisheye or the other Rokinon/Samyangs.
The build quality, fitment, metering and picture quality are excellent. Manual focus is no issue for this 12mm lens. This lens produces pictures that are equal to my prime lenses, you can be a pixel peeper. Check the digital images presented on Flickr for this lens. I use a highly rated Nikon 18-35 G lens for wide stuff and the 12mm for super wide. This lens pushes your creativity, you'll want to shoot with it for the effects it can produce. Very satisfied owner.
