Samyang/Rokinon 85mm f1.4 autofocus
1

I received the Samyang 85mm f1.4 a week ago and have done 3 photo sessions with it. Here's a quick take on it.

.Needed +20 on the microadjustment to nail focus.

.I compared it to the 85L, not as sharp...but the out of focus areas is almost a bit creamier.

.I noticed purple fringing but it was easily corrected in post.

.smaller and much lighter than 85L

overall i'm happy with it and will keep it. I decided on the Samyang version because it was $678 instead of the $749 price tag of the Rokinon.
