The Rokinon 135mm Cine DS Lens is currently on sale with B&H for about -$150 less than you'll find from most other retailers (sale ends in two days). Since i've been shooting mostly with the Rokinon XEEN Cinema Primes, i've been looking to add this lens to my kit until XEEN has more options.
A 135mm is a very popular focal length choice for portraiture. Unlike the Canon EF 135mm (autofocus), the Rokinon Cine DS lenses are better suited for those who shoot mainly video as it offers longer focus throws and easier to adapt to other camera bodies since it has a manual de-clicked aperture.
Sale is available for Canon EF, Nikon, or Sony E Mount lenses and ends in two days. Check it out (here).

Since they are one of your sponsors, I can appreciate your position. The article I link to is from last month. Hardly "quite old" - but they did vote in the union on 11/4, which I missed. Thanks Emm for pointing me to an update. I can feel better about supporting B&H now. Will be interesting to see how treating employees better will affect their prices and policies.
@ronn - I'm not going to pretend to understand the situation, but the article you link to is quite old. Looking at more recent articles, the employees have already unionized - so they won their vote and are in works for their solution.
A quick search for 'Amazon Employee Lawsuit' on Google will give you just as much grief stories if not more. We all do things in good conscious, but it would be better to refer to more recent articles to see how the situations have been addressed.
This could be a double edged sword. B&H has already been repremanded, but in one case no longer supporting B&H means no longer supporting the employees that is winning their battle. With a loss of income, i'm pretty sure B&H will have to let some employees go.
Great deal but I've stopped buying from B&H (after 10 years of major purchases): https://www.nytimes.com/2015/10/14/nyregion/workers-at-bh-photo-video-citing-hazards-move-to-unionize.html?_r=0
All about Adorama and Amazon now. Don't need that 135 that much just now.
