    Fantastic lenses. Tried to buy at Focus and the distributor wanted cash payment with delivery to follow. Walked away and ordered off ebay, very happy but received email from UK distributor ukoptics.co.uk having lifted my details from ebay demanding who I bought the lens from, demanding their information so that they could stop any one else selling the lenses cheaper stating that I had avoided tax and import duty very unpleasant people.

    I bought a 14mm in Nikon coupling. A very well made lens it was no good at all optically because the seller couldn’t be bothered to pack it, and it came in just its box-which has NO padding-just two bits of moulded transparentstuff in a VERY thin-walled carton.
    If you buy do insist the lazy persons bother to put in safely in a much larger padded box! or refuse to accept delivery

    I was told by the Guys on the stand this will be available for Pentax too. I did not try this one, but I did try the 85 mm f1.4 and it’s a beauty too.

    I will seriously consider buying one soon
