Excerpt: I use this product with my Sony NEX VG20 and it gives this little camcorder big time images. The build on this lens is very solid which feels great in your hands, the focus is very smooth and the f 1.4 Aperture looks great.
Pros: Durable, Easily Interchangeable, Nice Bokeh, Rugged, Strong Construction
Summary: This lens is pretty good. I am using this on the Sony A7 since there is no other native portrait lens currently available. The build quality is good for the price. It is sharp once stopped down past f2.8. Wide open there is some CA and slight softness.
Samyang/Rokinon 85mm f/1.4 Aspherical review by rponiarski
20 January 2015
Summary: Bought this lens for my Sony A7m2 full frame mirrorless camera to get a bit more range than my 24-70mm zoom. This fits the bill as it is still compact, while giving me the bit more reach I wanted. Not up in quality to the Sony/Zeiss lenses, but for the money it can't be beat.
Pros: Sharp, bright and solid lens
Cons: Lens hood is a bit flimsy, wish there was some sort of electrical connection like the Nikon version of this lens so that it will be showed in the EXIF data
Excerpt: I have a Canon 5D Mark II and use the 135mm f2.0 whenever I can. Indoors it's a bit long so I bought the 85mm 1.4. I knew before buying this that is was manual everything. Put the camera in live view in manual on auto ISO and it's does adjust the exposure for you.
Excerpt: It is a fairly rigid lens with a very good construction so it feels very strong. It is a heavy lens, more than any other micro four thirds lens, so with my GH3 and Battery Grip makes a whole too heavy. Although I will see to it no problem.
Pros: Lightweight, Nice Bokeh, Strong Construction
