great lens for those who want something this wide. it a pretty big lens though so not very discreet.

i opted for the 18mm 2.8 and so much more compact, easier to carry for travel and wide enough still that i dont miss the 4mm. there was no point for me to keep both but found 18mm 2.8 to be more versatile

This is a terrible lens, because Rokinon refuses to fix a critical flaw after years of knowing about it. It's 100% incompatible with in-body image stabilization unless you manually dig into settings and manually identify the focal length -- then switch back to auto every time you change lenses (and thus easily forget). Rokinon's response to this is, whatevah. No other active lens for E-mount has this problem.

Is that the same issue for all their lenses. I'm thinking about getting the 35mm 1.8

I'm only aware of this being an issue with the 14mm AF lens.
