When it comes to portraits, a few days ago I remembered the time when I had the Samyang 85/1.4.

What a nice lens.

Where it gets really interesting, is that one can get a FF camera (D610, A7, 6D) and the Samyang 85/1.4 for about the same money as V3 + 32/1.4 or E-M10 + Nocti 1.2 (or a little less than the latter).

Anyone else wants to argue against that?

D200 + Samyang 85/1.4 @ f/2

Sure is a good combo, if you're not bothered with MF via OVF (=no focus peaking) and lack of stabilization. I've had that experience with DSLRs+MF and lately with the V1 and C-Mount lenses. It's nice when you use it from time to time to make things interesting, but as a standard portrait solution, I find it too tedious.
