I got tired of waiting for an announcement and bought the Rokinon 14mm f/2.8.What kind of lens is it supposed to replace? If you wanted a 14mm Canon already has one.
Sorry Canon, maybe you can pull it together by the time I decide to get a new 50mm.
If you wanted a new UWA zoom then the Rokinon 14mm clearly isn't.
Point taken, but unless you have unlimited funds, a lot of thought goes into buying a lens. I really wanted a new UWA lens. I've been anxiously awaiting word of what Canon might have to offer. A 16-50mm f/4 IS with 77 mm filter threads would have been a perfect fit for me. I'd heard it was one of the possibilities and have been waiting for an announcement to confirm or put it to rest for 9 months. Back in June the report was that they would announce within 6-8 months.
In any case, I got tired of waiting and bought the Rokinon. If it turns out that I like that lens and decide I don't need anything between 14mm and 24mm, Canon won't get my money for a new UWA. Incidentally, if they keep dragging their feet with their announcements, I'll probably get Sigma's 50mm too.
