Looks like the older version with the gold ring. The red ringed newer version has a removable hood. Only matters if you intend to use on FF. Otherwise it's alright.
YES!!! this is very important! this lens is only good for crop censor. also, the last time around they were selling the newer version and the seller was adorama operating on ebay under some bogus account name.
no. only with an adapter on certain mounts/camera models. but with emounts, there are plenty out there.
ah I see, i have the stock 18-55mm lens and was looking for a second wider lenses to carry around with me. New to photography and I like the fisheye effect on some photos so I am really thinking about getting this for my Sony.
Are the mounts interchangeable? I did not know this.
What yarnim said
A Nik-NEX or EOS-NEX adapter would do the trick and it shouldn't cost you more than 10-20 bux.
What Rokinon basically does is that they take the full frame lens that they designed for Canon, attach an adapter to it and call it E-mount or M4/3 mount. For that reason, their M4/3 and E-mount lenses are actually longer than their Canon counterpart....go figure.
Do you have other lenses? I wouldn't consider this one as a first lens.
Thanks for the advice everyone! I've been given a 50mm, 18-50 and 50-200. (my dad had an old photography hobby.) But this will be the first I've purchased apart from what I've started with. This should be good for stylized video/party photos. Thumbs up and in for one!
