    Do you have any experience with the Samyang 85 mm T1.5 AS IF UMC II VD SLR lens? At £269 it looks like a decent starting off point for me.

    great information! I was curious if you have any experience working with Xeen lenses? I believe they are produced by Rokinon as well.

      We have not worked with Xeen lenses very much, but we are very impressed with them. If you have the chance to use them for a project, definitely get them! They aren’t cheap, but at the same time you get a lot for that price too.
