No reason not to use it for stills, its even possible thet the distance scale on the lens might mean something, it certainly is totally inaccurate on the non cine version.

The later versions were fixed, I got that lens from the german distributor Walimex in December 2012 and it my scale was perfectly correct.

Debatable. I got the Rokinon version this fall (September I think) and the scale is completely off.

You know you can fix that yourself, right?
