No price yet.

I'm interested. Will you get one?

its certainly a interesting lens, wide,relatively fast, and supposedly almost distortion free.
i am guessing 600€ , too high for me. I am a cheapskate i cant afford most of the great mft lenses available. 9mm bodycap is more in my budget, though i am not very found of that lens, cant take filters, f8, and distortion doesn't work for me. cant find the right subject.

if size is not a big deal, a samyang 10mm f2.8 + a Chinese speedbooster may be a better option. at least there is no such thing as too much choice, is there?
