    Title says it all, Rokinon(Samyang) 85mm f/1.4 with Nikon Ai to m43 Lens Turbo.

    I wasn't expecting a miracle, it just had to be good enough, as I was both skeptical and hopeful at the same time.

    Well.. I am quite pleased with results I am seeing.
    Yes, it has issues, but they are something I can easily live with.

    I have prepared 3 sets of shots, where each set demonstrates focus on the subject and then focus on the background.
    Please keep in mind that, these are far cry from a scientific test.
    They are just mere samples, hoping for you to find them useful in your quest. :)

    Subject in these samples are a fan that has rough dimension size of an adult head.

    If you have any suggestion, question or would like to see different type of test shots, please let me know. :)

    Thanks for sharing this. I'm considering this exact combination. I'd be particularly interested to see what kind of subject isolation/sharpness you get shooting larger subjects at a distance of 15 or 20 feet.
