    Just got a Tokina Fisheye with auto focus this week. Had my eye on the one you got as well, but figured to pass on manual focus. I may want to get one like yours just for the experience sometime. If I can get it used, should be able to sell for the same price. At least what you paid is not risky if you sell it.

    Why would anyone want autofocus on a lens like this?
    Depth of field is so great, focus is almost irrelevant.
    Personally, I only use my Samyang (and most other lenses) on manual exposure anyway.
    It’s an incredible lens for the price.
    I must add, it’s a new toy, so I’m still learning.

      You’re bang on the money, Kevin. Being a manual SLR user, this lens is fine by me. But I think for some, who are drawn in by marketing posters, lack of automatic features can be a showstopper.
