Still waiting, but that's OK.

In no rush. If I was in a rush I would have only bought in stock from elsewhere.

Buy it quickly as Samsung offers don't last.

The 2d version is well and truly back to normal price of 400 cad but the 3d version, which is listed as pre-order, is still discounted to 300 cad.
Given how slow Samsung is at distribution though, be prepared to wait.

Henry's in Canada is currently having a 100 off every Samsung lens. They don't have their first shipment of lenses in yet but you can pre-order the 45 for 200.

They haven't responded to my request for a status update on my order.

Has anyone else received any news?

When I ordered on June 14th they said ship in 7-10 days. When I followed up on June 24th they said three more weeks. I'll never order from these scammers again. B&H and Newegg for me.

yes, Henrys is a bunch of shysters. In the adds they show a photo of 18-55 series III but the kit lens they will send is series II, that's just false advertising, imo.

I ordered from Henry's on the day of the original post. Today I just received notice that my Paypal payment (that was pending) has been returned to my account. It looks like Henry's did not come through on the deal. I won't be paying attention to any more "deals" from Henry's.

Thanks for posting. I'm subscribed to updates on this post. Just checked my paypal on this order and it is listed as "expired". "Authorization for this payment has expired. Contact the merchant for more information".

Paypal authorization automatically expires after one month. Henry's will ask for new authorization when they'll have the lens in stock. Happened to me before (with Henry's).

Any relevant optical differences between 2D and 3D versions?
In reply to BrendanSeabrook, Jul 16, 2013

I just bought the 2D only version for a reasonable price (€225) but couldn't quite find what were the differences in optics between the 2D/3D and the 2D versions.  Anyone?

Will never happen. Henry's always honors their price. Once they sent me $1200 worth of lenses while paypal authorization expired. Received the lenses, then made a new paypal authorization.

Henry's kept their word!! Great company
In reply to SteveEverett, Aug 2, 2013

This was my first order from Henry's and doubted them for a while but six weeks later they have issued me another invoice at the same price for the 45mm. I wish I could delete a couple of not so positive posts here but dp won't let me. Buy with confidence from them.

Now it's $249 I think at B&H Photo ( free shipping. no tax)

http://www.bhphotovideo.com/bnh/controller/home?O=&sku=916134&is=REG&Q=&A=details

I'm  contemplating buying it. Even though I have Samsung 30mm  pancake and  Rokinon  35mm f/1.4  ( for Pentax but I use it on my nx1000 w/PK-NX adapter).

How do you like your 35mm f1.4?

I've received my 45mm f1.8, and found that the DoF is so shallow wide open, that I no longer use my Minolta 50mm f1.4 - why bother right?

But I am curious to know, how are you liking your 35mm f1.4?  I wouldn't mind having something brighter and better than the Samsung 30mm f2 (but not quite as narrow as the 45mm)
