So your comparison is of a 6mp sensor with AA filter vs 16mm sensor without AA filter. there are more demands on glass for high density sensors than lower, especially with regards to CA.

perhaps another way to analysis this,instead of making a broad assumption about all lenses because of your limited success with the 85mm, is this. Are there any users of that lens that get better results on a Fuji. If so, then perhaps your adapter was slightly out of spec. Only controlled tripod tests should be trusted to test a test, especially with shallow DOF aperture.

I don't have many photos with the Rokinon 85 1.4 here in DP gallery, i have more in my PC, but here are a few shot at 1.4 and 1.8 baby. I could not get such shot with this lens on my XE1. Is not the camera nor the lens.
