– Rokinon 12mm f2.0 for X-Mount – a first look at aps-photo: “Is this a replacement for the Fuji lenses? No I don’t think so, it might be a nice addition or if you are on a budget it might be a good lens to get. It is really hard to beat the Fuji 14mm f2.8 or the Fuji 10-24mm f4, they are very high quality lenses.”

– A pretty detailed first look at the Rokinon 12mm (mounted on Canon EOS-M) by N. Hamilton can be read at the AmazonUS customer reviews here: “For the money, I’m very pleased with my purchase. There are a variety of good reasons NOT to buy this lens, but if you can live with the negatives, this lens is a good value ultra-wide angle. Even after the use I’ve put it through so far, I would buy this lens again. I plan to give it some more extensive testing in the next several weeks.”
