I have found the Samyang 85/1.4 extremely difficult to focus visually on my d700. As you mention the duty cycle of the confirmation LED is far wider than its point of focus. I have found that on my camera/lens combination best focus is at the point where the right pointing arrow transitions to the dot. I believe this has worked for others also.
