    Starting to like this lens. A bit heavy, but it feels good when using manual focus.

    Great set of pictures in your Picasa. The first sample you showed above is really excellent!

    Thanks, Amin! It's always a challenge to get a natural smile out of my son, so I'm especially happy with that picture.

    I don't have any pictures like that right now, but I'll see what I can come up with. If I'm feeling especially motivated, I'll even mount it on my fiancee's Canon 450D for the sake of comparison.

    Got this lens on EOS mount, so I can use it both on the NEX and E-PL3. I found that the NEX is perfect for manual focus, but the E-PL3 is not bad either :wink:

    All @ f/1.4

    P7271330.

    P7271328.

    (I think I missed the focus a little here)
    P7271327.


    @f/4

    I liked the lens very much but it was tad too long for my taste. Here's a few samples for the thread I shot before selling it..

    It is a little long for everyday use, but I think I have a few scenarios where the lens is perfect. For its quality it is relatively cheap enough for me to keep for just when those instances come up.

    I agree. I'll probably have another one day. Right now the budget is over strained with items that I deem as necessities. Maybe by then Samyang will have a native m43 version. Tiny like the 7.5mm redo.

    Its hard to believe that these pictures came from this lens! I have it and I am having so much difficulty getting things to focus properly!! I don't think I can get my pictures sharp enough for my satisfaction (I guess the 20mm and 45mm have spoiled me :) ).

    RE Rok 85 f1.4 street theatre pix...

    Wow, Love your style and timing. I have just bought the Rokinon 85mm f1.4 to use for similar situations [mostly rock concerts] and am inspired by your "closeness' to the action with this optic. Congratulations. You really understand your gear.

    I used to put this lens on Olympus 4/3 cameras, and planned to sell it when I switched to m4/3. But after seeing the results such as in the following pictures, I might reconsider...
