Is this the “NEW” version that is supposedly improved? Also is it compatible with DX cameras?
States very clearly:
Comparable 35mm Equivalent on DX Format
Focal Length: 21 mm
Camera Mount Type: Nikon F
Nikon FX/35mm Film
Angle of View:
APS-C Picture Angle: 93.9°
Minimum Focus Distance: .9’ (27.43 cm)
Dimensions (DxL): Approx. 3.43 x 3.69" (87 x 93.6 mm)
Weight: 1.79 lb (814.2 g)
Can someone confirm whether this is the current model or an older one? The specs mostly match Rokinon’s product page but the weight is significantly different (530g there vs. 814.2g here).
Yarhargoat, can you point me to a description of the “NEW” version?

14mm. One of the sharpest lens I own for my Nikon 810. Mine is manual focus with Nikon control chip.
Love the lens.
Based on this, the version for sale isn’t the new one. The one for sale has 14 elements in 10 groups.
