Got my Rokinon 85mm f1.4 .. what a well made lens !

UPS just delivered this baby and she is beautiful. The construction is as fine as any Pentax lens I have (excluding Limiteds).

I have a feeling she will be a great performer. After reading the postings I'm very happy I bought this lens (so far).

Photos coming up in a day or so.

PS; The Rokinon Logo looks very nice/small and clean ... much nicer than the Bower or ? logo.

Two Fast shots with new Rokinon 85mm f1.4

Went out to the front yard and took two grab shots, more to follow.

What I noticed ... focus at 1.4 is VERY critical... these two taken at f1.4. I think it is pretty sharp at f1.4 ?

yup, focusing at 1.4 demands a very good control of DOF.

IMO this is a fine MF lens!But be sure to check it well for a few known problems as QC is not as good as other lens manufacturers....enjoy!
