Found 14th May 2016
Most places are around £240 - £250 for this lens with Fuji mount.

No long wait either from as coming from Ireland.

Samyang 12 mm 1:2.0 NCS CS gives wide angle of view amounting to 98.9 degree and rectilinear image mapping function. Owing to a large aperture range of f/2.0, the lens can be a useful shooting device and offer high image quality even in poor lightning conditions. Optical construction of the lens comprises 12 elements divided into 10 groups, these components include one aspherical lens (ASP) and one hybrid aspherical lens (H-ASP).

nice value lens
Very good lens, lovely and small, 18mm (35mm). Manual focus, but not too much of an issue as its a super wide.
Not just this item...if you observe properly, all the items sold by this seller are well far cheaper than the high street stores..

Negatives:
these are not UK models, they are grey imports..
no manufacturers warranty...
you cannot properly contact seller after few days...so literally no proper warranty...

I will definitely avoid such sellers on ebay...

Killer lens.

Hmmm, 99.6% Ebay feedback doesn't seem too bad to me...
Love my Samyang 14mm f2.8, just set it to 3m focus and f/16 and everything is in focus.

seems a bit overkill, surely be better to lower aperture to stop diffraction and lose 10cm off the front of your dof?
Very nice. If I didn't already own the native Fuji 14mm I would be all over this.

I'd love the 14mm but can't justify the cost at the minute as it will be first wide angle lens.

​On my copy it goes horribly soft at the edges the more you open it up, so much so I thought there was summat wrong with it. No biggie though as when you stop down it goes tack sharp and I only use it for landscapes anyway.

always the way, didn't even get to use my 10% off
lens i looked at is still at rrp everywhere so 10% off didn't seem enough of a bargain!
Now at £235 so not so great.. guess it's the Brexit effect if they're buying in Euros..
