    Nasim, first I want to thank you for the information and advice you are sharing through your site.
    I would like to know your opinion about using the Rokinon 35mm f/1.4 for night street photography.
    Please tell me which lens you would find most appropriate to this kind of photography.

      Hi Stefan, in case you or others still have this question, I have been using this lens (Canon mount) for the past 3 years. It is manual focus, and at f/1.4 it is very difficult to quickly get good focus using a viewfinder. I assume you want to use the lens pretty open, since you mentioned night street photography. If you have focus confirmation in camera, it may be useful. Most Canon’s don’t. The lens, however, is perfect for videography. The image quality is comparable to a standard 35 f/1.4 L, but maybe with a warmer tone. Hope that helps!
