Rokinon 85mm f1.4 on X-E2
3 months ago

On Friday I received the Rokinon (Samyang) 85mm f1.4 lens in Fuji X mount and tried it out on Saturday at my dad's 85th birthday on an X-E2.

The lens is well-built and has a solid feel. The focusing is smooth, but will need some getting used to the manual focusing (missed focus on a lot of the pictures).  The lens is not a small lens by any means, but for me it balanced well on the X-E2.  For a $300 lens the quality is quite good. I am looking forward to trying it outdoors.  One of the things I noticed is that the EXIF info is not correct (shows as 75mm and the f-stop and shutter speeds are not correct).

I am planning more in-depth tests as soon as the weather improves.

Here is a picture from Saturday (converted to B&W using NIK Silver FX).
