Thanks! Yeah, the Samyang/Rokinon did catch my attention, it seems perfect except for the filter difficulty. Yeah, I could hand-hold filters, but that doesn't quite work so well for long exposures (especially with gradient ND's which i use extensively, they kind of need to stay put through the exposure...)

Most of my filters are 77mm. Has anyone tried holding 77mm filters in front of the Samyang with a crop camera, and is 77mm big enough coverage for crop camera use? If so I imagine I could machine myself an attachment of some sort to put 77mm filters in front of the bug-eye.
