Re: A7 and Samyang 85/1.4

Nice shots. BTW, since you have the A7, I suppose it is recognized as a full frame lens, not automatically cropped in the camera. Is that right? If so, it is a lens I would be very interested in as a portrait lens.

Re: A7 and Samyang 85/1.4

Brilliant samples. Thanks for posting. And you are lucky to have a great subject as well!

I just got the Samyang 14mm, which I am happy with, and I am tempted to get this Samyang as well as the 24mm to round out my 35 and 55.

Did you get the model with the e-mount or is it adapted?

Also, how easy do you find the focusing with it? I assume you are using the peaking?

Looks pretty good. I have admit I'm considering a few of their fast wide primes. Good optical designs that won't break the bank.

Lovely shots, thank you for posting.

What is your keeper rate manually focusing the 85mm? Are you able to shoot wide open?

Very nice separation there. That lens is well known to be awesome, as well as the 35. I can't help but get vertigo when looking at that hill, especially when i see a toddler near by.

It is the Samyang 85 1.4 FF lens in Sony Alpha mount and cheap adapter. It is a very good lens and I use it with focus magnifier check. I get 100% perfect focus this way all the time. But this is for static subjects anyway.
Thanks for your kind words.

These look pretty good. I'm considering this lens for a future A7R...
