So, no comments on the lenses? Are these junk lenses?
Yes, the pin at 7 o'clock is the one. The Sigma should be a decent lens, but all these are "consumer grade" lenses. Rokina's lenses were widely sold, but not expensive - you'll just have to try it to see - it looks like a nice, compact lens for a 2.8. Gemini looks like an importer/retailer's label or a house brand - I don't think I haver heard about it. Where's Big Dawg when we need him?
