Lowest price I've seen on this lens by $100. Has good auto-focus and sublime bokeh.

This is so bizarre - it continues to drop another few bucks every 5 - 7 minutes. I wonder if it will hit 700 even!

Thanks for that info. $744.76 now. How low will this go? I don't need this lens. (I have a dozen 135mm lenses, including a 135 1.8.) But if it hits $600, I'm buying one. Smilie

$743.27 now. This is weird... I wonder if the seller set the price in a different currency that is losing its value against the USD. (Most currencies have been declining against the USD for months now.) The KRW has actually been strengthening against the USD in today's trading session, so that's not it. I guess we'll see in a few hours.

I'm thinking the same thing here. I was on the fence. But I really don't need another lens. And I'd use a 135mm maybe once a year. It's usually a fast 50 or a 24-70 2.8 on my camera. This 135 1.8 is one beautiful thing though. Just like my fast 85s that haven't been removed from my dry cabinet for about four years now...

Saymang quality control is terrible. A matter of time before it fails on you. The 135mm 1.8 gm was $1668 with the edu discount. Last christmas/black friday. Just wait and get that. Way better auto focus.

Yea kinda glad i missed out. Hard to explain lens purchases when your a hobbyist. Already have the 135 f/2 samyang but wouldve been nice to have af at 135 because manual focus is a pain with longer focal lengths

That was a great deal for a great lens. I didn't pull the trigger on that lens and regret it.
