The lens offers a minimum focus distance of 3.3', its filter thread diameter is 72mm and included with the lens is a bayonet-type lens hood that deflects unwanted light and protects the lens from damage.

    Rokinon 85mm f/1.4 reviews

    85mm f/1.4 AS IF UMC Lens for Micro Four Thirds Mount is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 13.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Really like this lens I bought this lens a little concerned about the manual focus aspect of the lens. I put the lens on my Olympus E-M5 put the camera in aperture priority and shot some pictures. The camera chose the shutter speed so I did not have to use the full manual setting. The manual focusing was fairly easy from f2.0 on. The f1.4 was more difficult due to the narrow depth of field but still doable. The pictures come out very sharp at f2.0 and above. The f1.4 pictures are sometimes a little soft but that may be my skill. If you are hesitating buying this lens because it is manual focus,try it ,it makes photography fun.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Exceeds expectations I have a Nikon full frame system and shoot weddings and corporate events. I practically live off my Nikon 85mm/1.4 for everything. I invested in a Panasonic GH3 and seached for a fast prime that had the look and feel of a pro lens and delivers top quality images. I saw this and was worried about the MF but decided to buy it anyway. The lens is a tank, so well built. The glass is beautiful and it feels perfect in the hands. I tried the Olympus 75mm but that didn't feel right to me at all. Two days afterwards I was at a conference and brought my Nikon and the Panasonic with this lens and it was brilliant. I shot mainly with the Rokinon and it delivered exactly what I needed and my client is impressed. I would say use it at about 2.0 to get things biting sharp. I can't wait to use it at a wedding next month because being a 170mm with the crop factor I can anticipate some great candids literally from across the room. The bokeh is so smooth and the subject separation is astounding. Five thumbs up.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing Piece of affordable glass! I've been a DSLR user since 2005, and I've always loved the shallow DOF and pixel quality of the FF cameras. In the last few years, we've expanded our family and now have two children. Having kids was the best thing we ever did, but the big and heavy DSLR + 70-200 ish lenses are just to much of a burden to take along....The oldest (4 yrs) hates having her picture taken, so subject distance is important if I want to get anything useful. I now shoot with a EM5 MK2 camera and this lens. I find the lens perfectly 100% usable at f1.4, and focus peaking makes the lens a dream to use. Some fringing is inevitable at 1.4, but one click in lightroom and it's gone. I love the BG separation this lens gives me, its so flattering and the u43 sensor being smaller is, to me, and advantages at it lets more of the subject be in focus. Highly recommended!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Well worth the money! I bought this lens to use on my Olympus OMD E10 Mark II. I was hesitant because I haven't used a manual focus, manual everything lens in years, and my eyes are getting old. With proper technique and the help of focus peaking, this lens is excellent. At 1.4 you must be dead on or forget it, but that is not a problem with the lens. I love it, and will be purchasing more from Rokinon.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Working with the Rokinin MFT 85mm f/1.4 I received the Rokinon MFT 85mm f/1.4 lens for my Olympus E-M1 a couple days ago and yesterday I went on a hike on one of the Portland, Oregon Boring Lava Domes called Powell Butte, which has a beautiful Pacific Northwest forest growing on its eastern flanks and an orchard growing on the summit.Boy, was it fun using a fully manual lens, for the first time since my early Nikon days (in 1967 I bought my first Nikon (an Ftn) and lens (the 200mm f/4)). On my outing on Powell Butte, I took 105 pictures of which 57 made the first cut and 38 made the final cut. Unfortunately, most of the rejects in the first cut were because they were out of focus! On too many shots, I'm not nailing the manual focus. I've got to improve my technique, whatever is wrong. I'm on a tripod, so it's not camera shake.There was more chromatic aberration with this lens than any other lens I have, maybe when I was shooting at f/1.4, which I was doing with a lot of the shots. I've removed the chromatic aberration on the included images below. But the images in focus were extremely sharp corner to corner, even at f/1.4. Hyperlink to Pbase gallery:* will notice missing f/stops and focal length in the metadata in these images. This is because this manual lens does not transmit this information to the E-M1 and so the body can't write the corresponding metadata to the images. But the in-forest images are at f/1.4 or f/2.0 and the tree skeletons (included to show corner to corner sharpness) are at f/2.8 to f/4. The sun was out and I had to avoid 1/8000 of a second in these summit shots. I was shooting at ISO 100.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice manual lens w good bokeh Used on Olympus PEN EPL-7 for portraits and product shots where I want small DOF. PROS: Very sharp lens (much better than my old Nikkor 85mm F1.8). Some chromatic aberration but very creamy bokeh, especially at F1.4. The lens gets a bit sharper at F2. Flare is well controlled even shooting into the sun. Mechanical feel of the focus is smooth and firm and F-stop ring is smooth clicks. Need to run more tests but I was impressed with my first batch of pictures. Some complained that the lens cap could not be removed/placed with the hood on - it is a tight fit BUT the release buttons are well designed, big, and in the front of the cap so the lens cap CAN be removed/placed on the lens with the hood on. Lens hood is included, easy to attach/remove and fits well. CONS: Minimum focus distance is about 1m would be nice if it could do a bit closer BUT for the price, not bad. A bit hard to focus at F1.8 unless you have a magnified viewfinder or LCD screen (this is just a fact of life at short focal lengths and shallow DOF). There is a bit of play in the mount - did a few tests and it does not seem to affect the focus BUT it is a bit unprofessional feeling when you feel the rotate a bit on the mount when you focus. My other Rokinons (12mm and fisheye mate better on the MFT mount) - 1 star for chromatic aberration and for loose lens mount. BUT for $269 this lens can do a very respectable job costing $$$$ in other brands.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Wow, totally suprised Shooting 4K video with a Panasonic GH4. I was a little worried about the manual focus/aperture at first, but was very happy after shooting with it, seems well built. Great, solid look from this lens and it was very affordable.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing bang for the buck lens! I use this lens with my AF-100 and GX7 and it's awesome! It's an incredibly sharp lens for this price point. The narrow depth of field is perfect for interviews, etc. The build is super solid. Looks and feels like a lens that would cost at least five times this much. I am very pleased with this product!
