Great shots! Love the third one, was this shot with the Samyang? I just bought the 35mm f1.8 and I'm considering the Samyang. How have you found using manual focusing? Difficult?

Thanks Ernest

I absolutely love to MF with the Samyang, with focus peaking and magnification it is smooth and with some training effortless. I much prefer it for portrait situations where i want to dictate focus exactly. It may take some time to get used too, but ive grown a big fan of it even though that was also a concern of mine before i bought it.

Good luck either way.
