Price: 8/10 - $350 is a great deal for this lens.
Glass Quality: 5/10 - Not very sharp.
Build Quality: 7/10 - For a plastic lens, this is great.
Features: 8/10 - LOVE the smooth click less aperture ring and lens gears. Would be 10 if it had auto focus, but that would also raise the price a lot.

Bottom line: Would I recommend buying one? Yes.

I have had the Rokinon 8mm Cine lens with the Canon mount for a month now, and I have to say I really like it. It is such a fun lens. Composing shots has never been as entertaining. At first use I thought 8mm is almost too wide to be useful, but after taking the lens downtown and shooting a good deal with it, I really think there is a place for this lens in my bag.

Check out the review and let me know what you think!
