First try

Already for a while I wanted a complete manual lens, looking around what was on the market my eye fell onthe Samyang 85mm f1.4. On my Fuji it eq 130mm.Yesterday I went to get it and today tried some first shots.The weather was grey and rainy but that didn't stop me.

Going complete manual brought back the feeling from the analog era. I can't wait to use this lens for some portraits, from 1.4 ( difficult to find the focuspoint ) to 2.8 you get a nice smoothness I like. Think I gonna like this big fellow.

I'm on my mobile device...wish I could see all of them!  I'm intRigued by the one I can see.  I'm in love with my 100mm.  It's my favorite lens by far.  Enjoy!

good choice of "victims" and excellent pictures of them! I'm sure the lens is perfect, but in the end it's only a tool in the hand of an good photographer. wink

Thanks a lot Sigrid, I like the control I have over it,no electronics. Back to basic.

I think you've nailed it. The bokeh is amazing. Great lens (and photographer, of course)
