    If I'm to adapt the Samyang 85 1.4, which is my better option? I think with the help of VF-4 focusing will not be a big issue, however if someone can tell me how good the focus peaking is on NEX?

    I have also thought about a FL reducer, a local brand that's much cheaper than metabones but probably same structure, has anyone got experience using the speed booster with Samyang 85 1.4 and how does that work? TIA

    I can focus my FD 85 on the EPL5 screen in magnify mode. It's shaky on both the screen, but can be focused. This is near the limit for me. Longer lenses need my VF2, especially in strong ambient light, The EPL5 can also use the key line filter trick in 2X mode.

    Would I want the VF4 or another camera system? Neither at this point.
