That's very tempting. It's a big lens, which is my biggest reservation, but is it worth it? I have a $100 B&H gift card right now (they have the deal too), so it'd only be $150 out of pocket. Hmmm.... Biggest thing for me is: would I bring it with me? That I don't know. I can easily find a spot on my bag for something like the Voigtlander 10 or 12, but something this large would necessitate leaving something else at home. Hmmmmmm......

In your case, Jordan, given your lovely output with the 16-35, I thought this comparison Jim Harris (Gunzorro) did a few years ago between his 16-35LII, the Samyang, and his 17L might be of some interest.

http://www.fredmiranda.com/forum/topic/1208037/0

His conclusion at the time was that they were all complimentary and needed to be kept, but the Samyang was a standout for him. I don't know how he decides what to carry, though. You'll have to ask him.

Did you use Fred's link? I added it to my shopping cart and it stayed at the advertised rate.

It is pretty big and IQ is decent. The 16-35mm f/4 is not as wide nor fast but has much better image quality. Still a great purchase though - especially given the price.

Yes, for a moment I was tempted at possibly replacing my Voigtlander 15mm III with this. But not at double the weight. Size and weight are very important for travel photography, so as tempting as this deal may be, I'm staying out of it.

I bit. I had a very excellent Canon copy that was in my bag when I lost it and it may be a while before something comparable comes out. Sure it may take a few copies to go through but a nice copy of this lens is easily worth the little extra weight, and it's a steal at $250. Fingers crossed on the lottery now!

Home page ad says/shows for Sony, but actually Canon, and I believe Nikon are also on the same sale price.

I paid this same sale price a few years back-great steal of a price for a really wonderfully useful wide angle. Super for night/star shots!!
