Why EF instead of RF mount? Does Rokinon think DSLRs will be around longer than many seem to think (or at least proclaim)?

1 grand for a 35mm fixed focal lens without autofocus in late 2018? Lol, just lol.

Would really love to know how many units they sell of all these manual shards.

to maximize sales. Pretty much every new mount since the EF mount was introduced now have adapters to use EF lenses. If they had released it in RF mount (or any mirrorless mount) the market would have been tiny.
