AMAZING LENS!

Comments about Bower 85mm f/1.4 Aspherical Lens with Focus Confirm Chip for Nikon:

This is my first MF lens and I was intimidated initially, but am I glad I took the chance! I usually stop down a bit but his lens is really good even wide open. I price checked between all the names Vivitar, Bower, etc. and just went with the cheapest from the store I trusted as they're all made by Samyang. My only advice when using this lens is to use the Ap. or Sh. drive modes. I usually shoot in full manual, but I find that the arrows in those drive modes are extremely helpful when focusing as opposed to the exposure meter in full manual. Using this on my D3100 and tested on a D5100 and works flawlessly with both. I'd recommend the AE chip unless your profient with MF lenses. Great buy!
