Re: Be Careful With Samyang/Rokinon

Be careful of what?? I have this Rokinon and it is incredible, remembering that you guys are asking for a "best budget lens". It works perfectly fine on my D7000. The lens is already sharp at 1.4, how much more sharper do you neeed it to be? I have not seen a valid BAD review on this lens. My 85mm is rock solid and i couldn't ask for better quality for $299??? It doesn't get any better than this. This lens should get the Novel price. Bellow is a link of a few of my humble photos taken in jpeg.
You know what they say, "a picture says more than a thousand words".

There are a lot of prefessional reviews on this lens from different places of the world and it definitely is a tough competitor among all 85mm 1.4 lenses for the price is sold for.
