Re: Questions regarding Rokinon/Vivitar/Samyang 85 f/1.4

cptobvious I've played around a bit with this method using the 50 1.8G and have found there is significant 'play' in the area my d5100 considers to be in focus.

With the even thinner DoF of the 85 1.4 fo you find this to be a problem?

Do you approach the area of focus from the ahead or behind the intended focus point to achieve best results or do you try to center it in the area the camera considers to be in focus?

Sorry for all the questions, my purchase was delayed so I am trying to learn all I can prior to getting the lens.

Thanks,

Diallo
