    Comments about Samyang 35mm f/1.4 AS UMC Lens for Nikon F (AE Chip):

    I had high hopes that the focus confirm chip would be helpful; as modern slr's are not really equipped for manual focus. I am disappointed, the glass is wonderful, the bokeh is pleasing and in focus images are sharp, but only after fiddling with it. All images using focus confirm are off, just a little, but clearly off. Also, I thought this had an infinity stop but is also a bit off.

        Comments about Samyang 35mm f/1.4 AS UMC Lens for Nikon F (AE Chip):

        Using this on a D800E and getting awesome resolution, contrast and color. Really sharp. I have the DK-17M on the camera to help me focus it, but the focus indicator in the view finder is right on. Today I got a Madagascar lizard with it while testing the lens. It's amazing. This lens is already my favorite wide angle, and it's got the 14-24mm f/2.8 to compete with. Great choice!
