I have a black Samyang. I don't know if this is common, but with the way the cap is attached to the hood, I think it is possible for the cap to scratch the hood if it is not done gently. It looks like the black part is not painted, so I hope I won't see this problem.

A new Rokinon (same as Samyang except focus rotation direction) is available from an Amazon seller and for $277-280. If a used one is not significantly cheaper perhaps you may consider buying a new one.

Thanks for the info.The cheapest I've seen new in the UK is £239, the examples on eBay seem to be selling for £190-£210. For that difference I think I'd spring for a new (black) one when I do take the plunge. That's interesting about the focus direction - I thought the only difference was the brand name. I've only seen Samyangs advertised in the UK so far.

Thanks again!
