Samyang 85/1.4
Apr 24, 2013

Since the quest for a Takumar 85mm or anything similar did not prove fruitful and the FA 77 Limited being way beyond my budget, I settled for the Samyang 85. Much too learn but it looks to be a fine bit of glass. Loving the shallow DoF opportunity it presents but not liking the way it seems to show bokeh fringing ( a minor, but irritant nonetheless).

A few test shots.

Do share your experiences. I could do with some tips.
