Two beautiful images. Really impressive.

As far as MF a fast lens like the Samyang 85 1.4 or any MF lens, I find the easiest way to MF, especially for shallow DOF work, is to use the camera tripod mounted so that once focus is achieve you don't move slightly forward or back, use LiveView to magnify the focus area as much as necessary to nail focus. Peaking, which my new K-30 has, is also a wonderful tool that makes it much easier to accurately manually focus a subject. Good luck.
