Excerpt: I bought this lens for my A7 using LEA 4 adaptor. I trade in my CZ 24 1.8 that I'm using from my nex 7 coz I wanted to get a FF lens. I thought I'm gonna missed my CZ but after taking few shots from this lens I have no regrets in trading in my CZ. The pictures are beautiful and sharp. The bokeh is amazing, with fast auto focus. The motor is so quiet and I like the proportion on my A7.
Pros: Consistent Output, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Nice Bokeh, Strong Construction
Excerpt: This is probably the best value 85mm f/1.4 for Nikon shooters. I shoot in low light a lot, so large apertures are important to me. I've only owned Nikon lenses before this, and it took a lot for me to actually purchase this lens. So far, it performs better than expected; I rented one to compare with the Nikon 85 f/1.4G, and the difference was imperceptible. I'm especially happy because the one I purchased actually seems sharper than the one I rented.
Excerpt: I love this news lens. It is a much better value than the Canon f/1.2 and it's a fraction of the price. The build is really solid and the focus is accurate, at least for my copy. I have read that the focus on some lenses is not good. It comes with a nice lens hood and extender for APS-C cameras. The bokeh is nice and soft and the pop of this lens is really nice.
Excerpt: This baby is sharp as a tac. I didn't know what I was missing. I tried it both on my 7D and my old Rebel, and it just makes even my little old Rebel sing with joy! Beautiful Bokeh, sharpness, etc. I use it to shoot portraits both animal and people, but I have also tried it in landscaping pictures. It just produces beautiful shots.
Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Easily Interchangeable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Nice Bokeh, Rugged, Strong Construction
Summary: High-quality optimized for work with digital cameras a lens, ideal for portrait shooting and any genres. The lens of a professional series, very successful, at the expense of the price and given-out quality is the worthy competitor of firm analogs. Top-level color rendition, colors bright and juicy, even in the dark room.
Excerpt: I was deciding between this and the 1.2 version of Canon. Glad I did it. Very sharp, warm, faster in the AF and a very good price. Very good construction, feels solid like a tank, much safer to work with specially at the time of switching lenses, better performance at low light which for me is a MUST, a bit lighter than the Canon's 1.2. Comparing the bokeh in 1.2 and this 1.4 beast, you can even tell the difference. This is a very good choice at a very good price.
Pros: Consistent Output, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Nice Bokeh, Rugged, Strong Construction, Very good price
Summary: I couldn't quite bring myself to buy the Canon L 1.2 because of the price. This is an awesome lens that fills the gap between the super expensive L (and super nice I might add) and the low end 85mm lenses. I highly recommend it!
