Image quality, vignetting, flare and distortion test results along with specs and measurements have been added to the Samyang 16mm f/2 ED AS UMC CS Lens (also branded as Rokinon/Bower) page.
 
Looks like a decent lens from an optical perspective. Full disclosure: we returned our first copy of this lens due to a likely decentering issue.

From Nikon:
 
Changes from “C” Firmware Version 1.01 to 1.02
 
  • Addressed an issue that sometimes caused errors with certain UHS-II SD memory cards. As we were able to confirm that these were read errors arising not in the camera but in the cards themselves, we addressed the issue with a work-around that switches temporarily to UHS-I mode when a card-side error occurs in UHS-II mode. The camera switches back to UHS-II mode when turned off and then on again or when the standby timer restarts. Card-side read errors may still occur after the update, albeit very infrequently.
