Updated info.

The Rokinon 16mm F/2 for Sony alpha review will be delayed for a while.  My copy has an issue with the focusing mechanism (shifting when ring reversed) which causes image quality problems sometimes.  I wasted an entire day screwing with it.  I’ve ordered another, and hopefully that one will be right.  This lens has the potential to …
