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?

Sure is a good combo, if you're not bothered with MF via OVF (=no focus peaking) and lack of stabilization.

Fortunately, I'm not. Not at all.

I also wasn't when I was using analogue SLRs, which had far better MF usability. The lenses were also much better optimized for MF usage.

But with DSLRs, and their clear VFs, and especially with the models with tinny pentamirror VFs, I find it a tedious experience.
