A truly beautiful lens..Swapped for Sigma 85mm 1.4 only for AF. I had a version with AF confirmation chip but i have found my self most often relying on my eyes during focusing. Keeper rate is no very high especially if you shoot bellow f2.For someone who is in no hurry in taking pictures Rokinon is a great choice. Slightly sharper than Sigma according to my tests although the margin is very narrow. Build quality is great and the smoothness of focusing ring is excellent, Exactly as manual focus lens should be.This is a must lens for those r video DSLR lovers. To summ things up there is not a single bad thing that i can say about this lens.
