Anyone try the Samyang/Rokinon 35 1.4 on the K-1 yet?

I just ordered this lens. It looks to be an excellent FF lens, but I don't recall anyone posting this lens with the K-1 yet. As soon as it arrives, I'll post some samples.

I have the lens but unfortunately no K-1 to test it with. It is an exceptional lens on my K-3 (also with sensorshift, although I don't know how much area of the FF surface this movement covers) and I have successfully used it with film too, that said I am looking forward to see some examples from you. I was lucky with my first copy of the lens but make sure it isn't decentered when it arrives, I have read QC is not always the best with samyang.

Quick tests in the yard with flower close ups show beautiful sharpness and performance in center wide open (f/1.4). Cannot fully assess performance as I haven't done e.g. outdoor portraiture or actual landscapes.
