Re: Which particular Rokinon fisheye did you get?

Is it possible to mount a filter? Since it's almost impossible outdoors to exclude sky, it just begs for a polarizer.

No, it doesn't take filters. But I don't think you would want to use a polarizer with this lens even if it could take one. The polarizing effects depends on the angle to the sun and would therefore be very uneven across the sky for such a wide FoV (180 degrees diagonally, 132 horizontally). Conventionally, an FL of 28 mm (FF equivalent) is thought of as the limit for the use of a polarizer if you want a reasonably even effect on the sky. Beyond that, it gets tricky even with ordinary WAs, let alone fisheyes.
