Nice

Well I just received my lens today the only reason y I’m giving three stars is because of the way my lens was packaged the lens was placed in a bigger box with my camera bag, the box was huge compared to that of the lens and the bag with very little and I mean little protection inside the box I immediately was upset by the way the package handler through my boxes on my porch I rushed to say something to him but he had already started driving off. Upon opening the lens everything seemed fine until I opened the lens cap and bam there it was a nice big smudge on my brand new lens..... the lens itself looks amazing I am just really upset that there is a smudge on the glass. The help services are down at the moment so I will see about getting this replaced ASAP I just paid $300.00+ and this is my first time ordering from B&H I’ve been wanting to make my purchase here for my photography equipment so I hope they will help me out and replace this lens for a clean brand new one with no smudge. Again the only reason for the 3 stars is because I paid for a new lens and what I received and how I received it is just unacceptable.

Great Bokeh, Fun to Shoot with

I got this for my Pentax K5 and my Pentax K1 Mark II. Works beautifully on both. Manual focus so not great for fast shots. But if you have the ability to take your time this lens will provide fabulous bokeh and wonderful colors. Very crisp and clean shots once you've got the focus down.

Great lens for money

I am just a hobbyist, not a pro photographer. And this is a very awesome lens at such a low price. I use it with Canon 6d and the results are awesome. It is very sharp, specially if you stop down a stop or two. It is reasonably sharp at f1.4. Although I generally use it at f2.0. The AE chip is very helpful since the dof is very thin at f1.4 and even f2.

With my Sony its really tough to get Sony Zeiss lens which is very costly & here I am using Rokinon 35mm F 1.4 for last 3 years & recently taken the 8500 F 1.4, bothe these lenses are just wonderful with manual focus & the price what they are giving.

So hard to find an 85mm prime that goes all the way down to 1.4 for less than a boatload of money. Losing the auto focus and other electronic features is a fair trade off for the money you save here. Hard to hit that thin 1.4 depth of field manually, but when you do it looks phenomenal. Wouldn't recommend it for action shots or any situation where you need to focus fast, but its great for portraits and modeling type stuff, which is what I usually deal with. Only reason I can't give it 5 stars is that the included lens hood is basically useless. It doesn't lock into place at all, and you'll just be worried about it falling off all the time. Don't know why they made such a great lens then made such a useless accessory. Just get a third party hood or a really good UV filter.
