This is the newer smaller version. 2 hours left or until it sells out, whichever comes first (right now 23% sold).

Great deal; but I'm sticking with my 10-18mm which adds OSS, auto-focus, auto-aperture, and better lens quality.

Er, you can't even compare those 2 lenses. One is a fixed MF fish eye lens and the other is an ultra wide zoom lens. In what situation would someone go "I'm going to need an 8mm fish eye lens for this shot to get the effect I want, but I think I'll use my 10-18mm zoom instead"?
