Any A7rii owners shooting with the Samyang 135mm 2.0 manual lens?

I bought this last month and have shot with it twice.  The image quality is superb. It looks as good as the Gmaster 85mm 1.4, to my eye. And that price point...so much more affordable than the Sony/Zeiss offerings.

Being fairly new to manual focus on the A7rii, I was wondering if any folks who are using this lens with an A7 camera could offer any advice on manual focus.

I use focus peaking and zoom in to max enlargment when focusing on the eye. Though I find that even the most minor movement throws off the focal point location when zoomed in that much. I rarely shoot using a tripod and remote shutter but am considering doing so when using this lens.

Thanks in advance for any advice!

Sony Alpha a7
