I just bought a used Rokinon 7.5mm,f3.5 fish from KEH and am having lots of fun with it as expected. I think I will actually use this lens often, trying to capture situations which fit its unique view. I am using it on an Olympus E M5 mft body which has the advantage that the optical stabilization is in the body only hence works fine with the fisheye. One of the features I use often with this camera is to touch the manual focus ring on the lens to get a 10X magnified view to sharpen my focus. That doesn't work with this lens and I haven't found out how to get that feature from a custom button (3 on the M5). I was surprised by how narrow the depth of field was, at least fully open (f3.5), despite claims of manual focus not being a problem with a fisheye.
Apparently the Samyang and the Rokinon are identical other than the label as well as other 7.5mm,f3.5 manjual focus off-label fisheyes.
