Re: Samsung 85mm f/1.4 on sale at Amazon.

It is a very good price. I'm struggling to find a reason why anyone would be disappointed with this lens, it is on a totally different level to any other NX lens (the 45mm is pretty close), and is the best lens I have ever used.

Apart from its understandable tendency to AF prioritise near targets, which is easily remedied, and totally mitigated by, the full time mechanical MF, the lens is faultless.

It weighs nearly 1kg, and even though NX is a travel system and such a lens totally defies the NX theory, I take mine everywhere. The contrast wide open is still superb and it is as sharp as a katana by f2, OOF rendering is smooth and beautiful all through the low f stops.

Bare quality, and I am glad to see a price that makes it more available to watchful NX users.
