Re: Amazon lightning deal: Rokinon 8mm f/2.8 fisheye for NEX for $249

I sent my Rokinon 8mm back, Using it on the 7 had all the problems I had read about. I still wanted to give it a try though. The magenta in the skys and trees was too much to clone out in PP. and the lens I received would not focus sharp at all. It seemed to need to go a little more then the stop at infinity. From what I have read, the problem are not that serious on the lower mg NEX models I guess it the 24mg packed into the same sensor as the 16mg. Anyway don't bother trying it on the NEX7:  Larry
