Good grief, Roel! A Rokinon 85mm f/1.4 + adapter + EC-14 + EX-25??? That's quite a stack for a ยต4/3 camera. How far did it stick out in front of the camera? 40cm???

Jim this is what it looks like (excuse the poor iphone quality):

Mind you, the shots shown before are only with Rokinon+adapter or Rokinon+EC-14+adapter. none with the EX-25 also.

Quite possible to handle.

Man oh man, what a beast!

Here's a Voigtländer 75mm f2.5 Color Heliar to compare size.

Perfect size and weight (230g + L mount adaptor), excellent image quality and a pleasure to use. Sure, it's a stop slower, but so small and manageable. No one ever thinks I'm packing a 150mm lens when I use it!

For "just" the 85mm (170mm EFL) at F1.4, there is ONLY the adapter and the lens (you can ditch the hood too).  That looks VERY different.

What I have shown here includes ALSO EC-14 (x1.4 teleconverter) and EX-25 (macro tube).  together, these two are more than half the size of the actual 85mm lens.
