Does anyone have Samyang/Rokinon 85mm and K-01, how good is this combination? I wonder how helpful focus peaking is when the lens is at F1.4? Does the focus peaking show actual DOF depending of the current apperture?
Yes , just assign DOF Preview to the green button and focus peaking will show the DOF with the new aperture setting. Here is my K-01 with Rokinon 85mm F1.4 , 50mm F1.4 FA, Sigma 15mm F2.8 , Kiron 105mm F2.8 Macro 1:1 and Opteka 6.5mm F3.5.

Jogiba, you are awesome.

Seeing the K-01 with larger lenses doesn't look anywhere near as wrong as the Nex series with larger lenses. The K-01 looks so natural.

It's funny looking at the Sony Nex-5N with 35mm F1.4 vs K-01 with 85mm F1.4.

I love the peaking feature on the NEX5N. Can anyone say if this feature on the K01 is as good. For example, the NEX lets you choose whether the peaking color will be white, red or yellow.

My understanding is that the K-01 currently only has 1 setting for focus peaking, so it is not as good as the NEX or the GXR - however, I haven't heard anyone say that the K-01's focus peaking isn't good enough.

The K-01 peaking indicator is a bright white border around the high-contrast portions of the image that are in focus. In that way, if the DOF causes only a portion to be in focus, that is clearly evident on the LCD. The focus peaking brightens and sharpens as you move nearer to sharp focus, then dims again as you move beyond sharp focus. I can't compare to the Nex implementation but this is very good compared to using a VF - even a bright, split image, prism-collar fresnel SLR focusing screen VF.

jogiba, that is the answer I was looking for. K-01 really looks great with rokinon 85, and it is good to know that focus peaking is really so useful.

Not fair, on the K-01 should be the FA31mm/f1.8 and then K-01 and Q do make the same pictures. Only K-01 is better!
