    Bower vs Rokinon fisheye lenses

    Broke my Bower fisheye lens and luckily had a warranty that fully refunded me the cash for it. Now that I can re-buy a new lens, I felt that it was pretty difficult to focus with the Bower while filming / taking photos and saw that the Rokinon lens was around the same price range. Curious if anyone had any input on any significant differences between both lenses. Using a canon 60d.

    They are the same exact thing other than some external cosmetics (logo, font, grip pattern/material on focus ring, etc). Both made by Samyang in Korea, same optics, etc. Samyang, Rokinon, Wallimex, Bower, Pro-Optic, Opteka, etc- all the same thing.

    The only alternative I would recommend is the Sigma 10mm f2.8, but it's about twice the cost. It does have autofocus and electronic aperture control though.
