Rokinon 14mm F2.8... Got one for fathers day and love it. Yes, it full manual and has mustache distortion, but is correctable with PTLens and other tools. Drawback is no way to add filters. Still, I have a blast with it (5D Mark III).

This got me curious - how did you add the AF confirmation chip ? It works on your Canon, right ?

Why do they use two names, Samyang or Rokinon?I think there are a few names this lens in sold under (Bower Vivitar, Opteka as well). I got the Rokinon FE14M-C as a fathers day gift and am very impressed with it. Not sure who the parent company is.
From what I have seen, that Sigma lens is very soft. It's possible the tests I saw used bad samples. Do you find yours to be "usably sharp", and what body do you use it on, if I may ask?
For the price, certainly it's tempting...but I had thought the Tamron might be better. As it stands now, I need a wider angle zoom, before I need a 24-70. But I definitely want a 24-70 in the future.
