Re: Samyang 50mm f1.4 AF - not sure if front focused?

This lens (Samyang's first AF lens for E-mount) does have some focus problems, I've written to Samyang and they acknowledged it. I usually take portraits in f2-2.2 and make sure to check the eyes. It's impossible to say whether it is more accurate in AFC or AFS, because it varies wildly, but I get enough keepers with it and I like the rendering.

An interesting thing to note is that despite its less than professional reliability in stills, it's always in focus when I use it for video!
