Rokinon 85mm f/1.4 lens
A little over a year ago, I purchased the Rokinon 86mm f/1.4 lens for the Samsung NX300. At first I was a litte skeptical because the name of the brand was unknown to me and the price seemed too good to be true. The 85mm lens usually runs for a very high price, but if you don't want to do some damage to your account and looking for excellent performance, this is definitely a lens that you cannot miss out on.
Here is an overview of it's features:
Aperture Range: F/1.4 - F/16
Minimum Focusing Distance: 3.3 ft
Minimum Focal Length85
Item Weight1.4 pounds
Image Quality: No doubt does this lens produce amazing photos and no doubt it provides a beautiful bokeh. This lens provides beautiful portraits from open wide and perorms like a brand name 85mm f/1.4 lens.
Value: You can't go wrong for the price of the lens and the performance of the lens. It's a little heavy and has a nice sturdy build to it.
The only con for this lens is focus. Keep in mind that this is a full manual lens with no auto focus feature on it. This lens will require proficient manual focus or must be dedicated to a lot of practice in manual focus, and sometimes manual focus can get a little difficult with this lens.
The lens has an aperture ring so if you're looking to change aperture setting on the camera, look for it on the lens.
