Thanks for the post. I share similar shooting preference with you and really appreciate the content. I also have the 10-24 and "the brick." Have been considering getting the 8-16 to replace the 10-24 but haven't pulled the trigger yet. Seeing your pics using the Rokinon 8mm has me considering it as an option.

I debated this with myself a lot during vacation and my decision remains against it. The main reason to me to get that lens would be to replace the 10-24 and the fisheye. However: a) if I want to do long exposure that means carrying bulky filter attachments, b) the fisheye is more like 6mm so 8mm still not enough in certain cases, c) as I said above, the slight fisheye effect from the Rokinon may be more desirable than a rectilinear distortion and, most importantly, d) the extra range of the 10-24, especially when you are tight on time, is Super useful. I think you are better off adding the upcoming Fuji 8mm to your 10-24 and I will probably to the same.
