Amazing portrait lens and a great value This is an amazing portrait lens. I used it with a Fujifilm XT1 cropped sensor camera. The lens feels heavy and high quality. The images are super sharp. Just stunningly sharp! 5Great value, beautiful shots I love this lens!! It's well constructed, and it's easy to control. I have not put this lens through any scientific tests, nor have I compared it to other lenses. I have one camera and one 85mm lens, so no bases for comparison, but it has given me some great results. Focus peaking on the Fujifilm makes it pretty easy to get a sharp image, especially if you have a bit of time. Obviously, it's a bit more difficult wide open, but it's a good skill to practice. Sometimes if I'm in a rush, I'll do my best to get it near focus, then take two additional shots shifting the focus ring just a tad on both directions to cover my ground. Then, I have a good chance that at least one of them is really sharp. The picture of the microphone on the keyboard was taken the first day I got the lens and the second was taken a couple of weeks after. Not sure if I got any better in that timeframe, but some information for reference. I would seriously buy this thing for portraits. 5A real bargain.....but not a true 1.4 lens I wanted to wait to do a thorough test of this lens before I wrote my review. I will try to keep it short.....First off, for the price you pay, the build quality of this lens is amazing. In my opinion, nothing about this lens feels cheap. Others reviews say that the lens hood feel cheap, I don't know if they are referring to an earlier model (gold lettering) but the newer one (red ring), is amazing. Also, other reviews have stated that the focus ring is stiff. I can vouch and say that this is true. It is not smooth as other brands. What I did to smooth mine out was constantly turning the focus ring. I think it just needs to be "broken in". Don't get me wrong, I am not saying that you will need a monkey wrench to use the focusing ring, I am just letting you know that it is not as smooth as other manufacturers focus ring.Now for picture quality: this lens should have been labeled an F2.0 lens instead of f1.4. At f1.4 the picture is soft. At first, I thought I forgot how to manually focus. This was not the case since I have several manual focus Minolta lens. Luckily, by f2.0 the image sharpens up. I thought that I had a bad copy, but if you google "Rokinon 85 f1.4 soft at f1.4", you will get several sites where people have stated the same thing.I am not sure if this is QC thing at the plant since some people say that the lens is sharp wide open. Maybe I just had a bad copy.Lastly, I there's a chipped version and a non-chipped version. I am guessing that the ones made for Nikon and Canon are the chipped ones that gives focus confirmation. I have the Sony E-mount version and I can say that this does not have it. So, with all of that, why didn't I rate this lower? Well, when you factor the price and the value that you are getting, I can overlook it short comings at f1.4. If it started sharpening up at f3ish, then I would have been more upset. If you are a professional, I can't recommend this lens to you. Hopes this review helps, sorry for the length.I've included photos of a focus chart. I focused on the center. The camera was put on a tripod with a two (2) second delay. The last two images, I just took a photo of one of my manual lens (handheld). All photos were cropped, and no enhancement was done to photos. 4Quickly became a favorite lens Just to be specific, this review covers the AE version of this lens with the focus confirmation chip for the Canon mount. As a photojournalist, I bought this lens thinking "portraits," and I have to say, the one I received excels at that purpose. But the idea of using its manual focus on the fly while on assignments wasn't something I thought I would be too keen on, despite having a number of older manual focus lenses that I play around with which to shoot fine art shots.I have to say this lens has quickly become one of my go-to lenses in the field as well, due to it's quickness (low light ability,) and sharpness throughout its aperture range. and the focus confirmation with the AE version is dead on, making this lens very easy to quickly grab crisp, low-light shouts. Also, the automated aperture (aperture is set through the camera) in this version keeps the viewfinder bright during the focusing.It is robust in its construction, and although I have seen other reviews mentioning that the hood can be loose, the hood I received with my lens snaps into place solidly and firmly.As far as image quality, this lens is every bit as sharp and delivers as much contrast as any L Series lens in my bag, and it does seem to do so throughout its aperture range on both my full-frame (5D III) and crop-frame (7D/40D) bodies.This lens seems to be another rock-solid choice in Rokinon's lineup, and has secured a spot on my short list of walk-around lenses.The shot attached is at f3.2, 1/125 and iso 400. 5The best lens I ever returned! This is a fantastic lens for the price. It's very well made and tack sharp. But I returned it. Here's why:I picked up this lens from Amazon and a used version of the Nikon 85mm f/1.8D Auto Focus Nikkor Lens for Nikon Digital SLR Cameras - Fixed from my local camera shop. They were both roughly the same price, but the Rokinon has better build quality, opens up wider, and is sharper wide open. So why did I return it? The lack of autofocus. I also have the Rokinon 12mm F2.8 Ultra Wide Fisheye Lens for Nikon AE DSLR Cameras - Full Frame Compatible; which I adore, because it's significantly easier to manually focus a wide angle lens with today's modern dSLR bodies. Back when I shot film, my camera had a split screen to help with manual focus. It was fantastic. These days, manual focus aids are less robust. For example, my Nikon DF sports a small dot in the lower-left-hand corner of the viewfinder to indicate that the image is in focus. By the time my eye travels from the focal point to the dot, my subject has moved. This isn't a problem for wide angle, when your depth of field is intentionally huge, but it results in a lot of misses for telephoto. I found that having the AF capability on the slower, softer Nikon 85mm f/1.8D resulted in significantly more usable images when compared to the sharper, faster Rokinon. That said, the Rokinon is a 5-star lens when it comes to affordable, manual focus options. 5This is such a beautiful lens. It really changed my photography & helped ... This is such a beautiful lens. It really changed my photography & helped my improve. The bokeh is beautiful, it's incredibly sharp, and the images are beautiful. I feel like I can't take a bad one! It IS manual focus, which can be difficult if you are shooting wide open, but it was worth the price difference imo. I also felt like it helped improve my skills as a photographer. I am constantly recommending it to new photographers. 5Great optically, but misleading dimension on Sony mount. Great optical quality, but it is NOT a native Sony e-mount. It has the adapter permanently bolted on and adds over an inch of length. The Opteka 85mm f/1.8 is smaller and very close in optical quality for a third the price. 3Sharp up to f/2.0 I bought this lens based in reviews for Amazon and Internet in general, that always stated that this lens was very sharp, even in f/1.4.My first unit had soft focus. Even at f/2.8, sharpness was not as great as I expected. Tried to photograph subjects in a continuous plane, like grass. In subjects like that, something has to be in focus, even when is not what you're trying to capture. Returned the lens and ordered a new one.The second goes great up to f/2.0, but also gets soft at f/1.4. By the way, there is no aperture between these two. I'd expect f/1.8 or f/1.6, but not. And this seems to be with every lens.Construction is, as already told, great. I also like the color rendition of this lens.Focusing is not easy. With my Fuji, the best way I found for focusing is in the digital split mode. Focus peek can also be used, but i though not as easy as the digital split.So when people say "it's a good lens, period.", I have to say that it's a good lens for the price. 3My new favorite portrait lens!! When I first ordered this lens I knew I was excited for a 1.4 aperture. I need to do faster lens that was going to be great for my portraits. I was very hesitant about the manual focus but the focus chip made it quite easy! It's pretty hard to hit the focus at 1.4 anyway but when you do it is absolutely stunning! This lens has already made it through seven family shoots this fall! 5Incredible lens Let me start off by saying that i spent a LOT of time looking for a decently priced prime lens. when i came across this lens i was a little skeptical about purchasing it because i never heard of the brand, but after reading up a lot on this brand and taking a look at the images it produced I figured it was worth a try. the first thing i did when i got this lens was stop it straight down to 1.4 and began shooting some images at a pretty nice distance, what i saw was sharp vibrant images, nd yes i'll repeat SHARP (even at 1.4)I already love this lens and i've only had it for a few hours.The one thing i don't like too much about this lens is the way it screws on, it doesn't feel very comfortable at all, the barrel of the lens is taken up about 85% with the focusing ring, and directly under that is the aperture ring, so u have to be careful when mounting the lens, also it isn't such a smooth screw on compared to the nikon lenses that snap and screw on with ease, this has a little grinding to it. Aside from that, i dont have ANY complaints about this lens what so ever. 5
