Very jealous of that setup DWB
I know how you feel.

Very nice indeed! I think this one just ended up on my must buy list. The question now is, will it be the Samyang 35mm or the 70 Limited first. Decisions, decisions.

For the record, I have the same issue as Ken with the focus confirmation.

Again, very nice! If most of those are at f1.4 or close to it, I'd have to say it's quite good wide open and worth the price. Even if it doesn't have AF.

Some test shots from the D700 + Vivitar-branded 35mm f/1.4 (cross-posted from the FF thread):
Nice shots.

I was looking at lenstip for FA31 and Samyang 35/1.4 test shots and Samyang color appears very muted. Is that your experience too?

There's no way that the colour difference in those photos is due only to the lens. Bright green turning to dull brown??? They look like the same shot taken in summer & at the end of autumn.

Look like too many differences in the circumstances and environment for the two to offer any real meaningful comparison of the lenses IMHO.

I haven't experienced any major color differences from other lenses. I'm assuming the difference in the test shots above is indeed due to season.

Couple more recent shots:

how about the post box and statue? I don't think those would change due to the season.
