I've been excited about the release of this lens. This could be brilliant for landscape/architecture work as the typical lack of AF on such lens renders Samyang's disadvantage moot. Still, I want to hear some serious reviews before plunking down the cash. Price is a hair more than I expected, but that is only because of Samyang's discount nature in the past. It is actually pretty reasonable considering the competition
Agreed, I tried the Canon 24 TS v2 via the CPS loan program, and it was pretty awesome. Not something I'd use often, so if the Samyang is quite good optically, I'm seriously tempted to pick one up sometime this year rather than waiting to save up for the Canon one.
