Im a little bit worried of the chromatic aberrtion at 2.8f , i read is a bit of a problem. Thanx

Why would you want the Tokina over the Samyang/Rokinon/Bower 35mm f/1.4 for video?

Agreed its twice as fast but the Samyang is still 2x price if pachacutek is looking for cost as the priority..

I think street prices are closer, I was able to pick up a Rokinon for a bit over $400 and it looks like the Tokina is going for about $300. Of course if pachacutek is only wanting to shoot day or good light and wants the more compact size (plus save about $100 or so), Tokina may be the right choice. Plus it has autofocus though reportedly not great if there is an interest for that.

I would guess the AF.
