    It's the first that I have seen of this brand. Buyer beware.

    Here is some information and reviews on the Samyang 8mm fisheye and the 85mm/f1.4

    B&H, Adorama and Amazon sell Samyang lenses. But I don't know anything about them. I had checked out the 8mm a while back. I think it just came out.

    8mm fisheye




    ETA: Interview with Marketers from Samyang Opitics about new 4/3 mounts for the 85mm/f1.4 lens.

    I understand your concern but i have been expecting these lens for sometime :), they are not the cream of the crop but worth looking into.

    Sadly we dont have any lens in the range of 85mm 1.4 and 14mm 2.8. Samyang doesnt have a vendor for the new lens in usa other than foto-tip in poland, which ships out of UK.

    I am trying to get one and lets see if they accept my offer :)

    I will let every one know how bad it is, as they say, you get what you pay for :)

    Seems like I have seen something similar to the fisheye on ebay but it was MF and Russian made. If someone would make an ultra wide prime please, not fisheye. I don't care if it is MF. 7mm would be lovely.
