Rokinon 8mm fisheye lens Can't Post

It's been mentioned here in the past but not much on price and or how it works with video. The link below has some video footage that might be of interest for some.

I was thinking to buy a Sigma 15mm f/2.8, for stills , combined with Sony CX and Century 0.5 for daily work with Tandems.

Has anyone used the Rokinon 8mm for stills doing Tandems ?
Cause its half of price than Sigma....

Thanks

A glass that has a thick front element like in this lens, is very prone to fogging up.

I have a very similar 8mm samyang, which I dont consider suitable for tandem. It simply isnt reliable enough, in terms of this fog issue.

Also, you shouldnt compare the 8mm to the 15mm, since the difference in FOV is huge. The 15mm lens is ment for the Full frame where it gives the same FOV as the 8mm with APS-C.
