K-01: Samyang 85mm f/1.4 or Tamron Adaptall-2 90mm f/2.5?
Feb 12, 2013

Now that I have K-01 fitted with CarrySpeed LCD Viewfinder (thanks to Ron for suggesting it!) and because I'm  beginning to get the hang of focus peaking I am thinking of trying  the K-01 with either the  Samyang 85mm f/1.4  or Tamron Adaptall-2 SP 90mm f/2.5 lenses. My targets will be portraits of my grandchildren and subject isolation generally.

I'd like to hear your thoughts on which of these lenses you'd choose.

Many thanks.
