They are all Samyang lenses. Buy the one that is the best deal. I picked it up last week, just before heading to the F1 race in Austin. I thought I wouldn't use it much but I turned out to use it all over the place. It is tack sharp and great for taking in the entire scene. Here is an example...not technically great, but I was able to include myself in the foreground, with my brother...and you can't even tell I'm actually taking the photograph.

Me in the lower left hand corner with my two brothers. Unfortunately, no F1 cars going by in this shot.

Cool shot. I have a Nikon fisheye and the only shots with my in it included my stomach 

The Bowker labeled version is the least expensive of the 3 brands, at least at BH, and if they are indeed the same that's the one i'll go for.
