Default New 4/3 prime lens from Samyyang

Yes, that is 4/3, not m4/3. A 24mm prime f1.4 lens.

That 24 mm 1.4 sounds like a seller.

I just wonder why it should be a seller.
Sigma has the 30mm 1,4 in 4/3 and cheaper then this Samyang version.
So why would you buy this complete manual lens from Samyang?

Hi Lordje,

The Sigma 30mm f/1.4 is no longer available (discontinued) and the price is very similar to the Sigma ($420-$450).

Thank you for the info Marcello didn't know that.
I saw the price for Europe and that is € 599 ( calculated to US dollar that is $ 783,83) for that price you can also get the Zuiko Digital 50mm F2,0.
I did know the Sigma 30mm 1,4 was cheaper here so that is why had this question.
