    Did anyone try the full frame e-mount version of the Samyang (aka Rokinon, etc) 24mm f1.4 on the A7/A7R? I'm really thinking of buying this lens and I'd love to hear some thoughts and see some pictures.

    I have the A mount version. I really like it but it does have some focus lag. It is fixable. You can check out you tube and rokinon 24 and it will show up. It's not as sharp wide open as the 35mm but at f2 it's really nice.

    What do you mean by "focus lag" on a manual focus lens?

    Sometimes when you turn the focus ring it takes a second for it to "catch" before it focuses. It's a known issue with the 24mm. No other rokinon I know of has it. I own the 14mm 24mm 35mm and 85
