Samyang vs Rokinon vs Bower 7.5mm Fisheye - differences?
May 2, 2012

I am aware that these lenses (and likely others) are all variants of the same Samyang produced lens. However, I'm curious if there are any subtle differences between these variants in terms of finish or warranty, anything else?

I believe on other similar variant lenses there are differences in focus direction as an example. Or am I literally just deciding which brand name I want painted on my lens?
