Dustin, your review seems to (sort of) imply that the wonderpana system made for the 2.8 version fits on this new one?   Is that true?   (The Lee SW150 adapter for the old version does not)

No, I was saying that I was able to make the WonderPana for the Tamron 15-30 VC loosely fit - a shim or two would have made it fit more tightly.  A specific adapter should come out for it, but in a pinch I could make the existing system work.

Dig.  The text review just said "The wonderpana system I use" so I wasn't sure (didn't watch the video if you clarified there, sorry :) )

Thanks for the answer!

That's correct.  I wouldn't be surprised to see such a rebate resurface, however.  I think the lens is a great value at $799

Great review Dustin. I thought it a fair assessment of the lens.
I already have the Samyang 14mm 2.8 and was thinking about the Sigma 14mm 1.8 (whenever it comes out).
I hadn't considered really the Samyang 2.4 or the Laowa 2.8mm but now I am after your reviews.
I might wait for the Sigma and see what the reviews are.

What i will love to see is a comparison to a Irix 15 f2.4 and Irix 11 F4.

I cant see any info about coma and astro in general in these two lens.

Thank you for the review.
