i bought the Rokinon 85mm f/1.4 Aspherical Lens@ $199 here http://www.ebay.com/itm/390876353495

No E-mount but i choose Canon mount as i can use with adapter for Sony A7 & E-M1. For A7, i'll be testing EOS Mount to Leica M mount on Voigtlander M to NEX Close Focus Adapter (Sony E Mount) so that i can do close focus.

since its a Manual lens...so might as well get something i can use on both camera.

Adapters are notoriously bad at being perfectly level to the mount, so using 2 adapters for a lens just doesn't appeal to me at all. I'll look forward to seeing some of your results from the A7 using 2 mount adapters. Maybe you'll get lucky.
