After your last experience buying your new camera, I would be wary of what
those Spanish site tell you.
To start with those are over priced for Samyang lenses. The Canon mount
Samyang 14mm UW f/2.8 IF UD UMC is available at B&H for $279. The Foto24 site
is showing the correct lens at $51 more than it should be.
Samyang also have a much more expensive, slightly faster XP 14mm f/2.4, still
manual-focus for $999.
The Samyang AF 14mm f/2.8 FE is not a Canon mount. It is an auto-focus lens
for the Sony E-mount and that sells at B&H for $699.

There are no Canon mount Samyang auto-focus lenses, so if you see the AF
