- Rebadges of the lens are available by
Walimex (click to compare).
- Samyang also produces a V-DSLR cine version of this lens.
- Until the release of the
DH still photography version and the additional V-DSLR version with detachable hood in 2012 some people tended to shave down the lens hood to use the lens on bigger format sensor cameras without vignetting caused by the hood as well.
