Re: Will the Samyang 35mm f/1.4 auto focus on a Nikon D800?

I think you need to go back to the Rockwell site and re-read the review on this lens.

Samyang 35mm f/1.4 (FX) is the title on his review, so I should think this is for a FX camera.

He states, " Korean-made lens is manual-focus only, but has electronic AI-P contacts to couple to every digital and autofocus Nikon for full Matrix metering, EXIF data and exposure controls.

This Nikon-mount version works great with every Nikon camera made since 1977, digital and 35mm, auto and manual focus. (the lens of course is manual-focus only, and works great on AF and digital SLRs.)"
