Re: Rokinon 12mm f2 or Fuji 10-24 f/4...?

Ive had two Samyang/Rokinon 12mm s.

Nice lens, but annoyingly, infinity is somewhere left of the infinity stop. This can be a pain if you are setting up, say, f/8,-f/11 and infinity as a walk around shooting setting.

There is a fairly exhaustive YouTube video [shouldn't be too hard to find] comparing the Samyang 12mm and the 10-24mm at 12mm.

The Fuji pretty well cleans up the Samyang from all points of view re. image quality.

And the OIS probably compensates for the slower f/stop.

I've actually got a 10-24mm on order right now!
