JK,

Is the price reasonable or ex?
Actually, me and Bernard were looking for more ppl to buy to nego a better price, but no one else wanted to make the jump :D

Don't expect it to be Samyang 14 cheap :D
Its really the most expensive UWA prime, more than Irix 15, Samyang 14.

But all I can say is that its commensurate with the price.

Notables:
Smaller than my Samyang 14mm and its a 12mm. (more portable is always a big plus that ppl forget to mention)
Nice all metal build.
Infinity stop is exact
Very low distortion for a UWA
Low vignette (which is often not the case for UWA)
"A" mode - good to have when shooting in LV to get the histogram to confirm exposure.
Uses a much smaller 100mm filter system

Not a landscape guy but the results do look great. Will consider this in the future when I will shoot more landscapes.

Thanks for sharing JK.
