      Comments about Samyang 85mm f/1.4 Aspherical IF Lens for Sony E-Mount Cameras:

      Great image and build quality for the price. The lens hood snaps on solidly and I never have to worry about it falling off.

      My only gripe is that the focus ring, while well dampened, doesn't always feel very smooth at times.

      Focus is "soft" which can be used to great advantage. I love the glow I get with portraits.

      I use this product with my Sony NEX VG20 and it gives this little camcorder big time images. The build on this lens is very solid which feels great in your hands, the focus is very smooth and the f 1.4 Aperture looks great.

      Great portrait lens

      Comments about Samyang 85mm f/1.4 Aspherical IF Lens for Sony E-Mount Cameras:

      I use this lens on the Sony A6000. This is an amazing lens that gives you professional and sharp focused portrait photo's a very nice background bokeh.
      Works excellent in evening shots.
