    Has anyone use this lens? Please advise the image quality of it. I'm planning to buy this to use with NEX C3 and A6000. Thanks

    I have this lens but a canon version using metabones on my A7r, all I can say is the image quality is superb, beyond my expectations, Very very close to my Sigma 85mm F1.4 which itself is a fantastic lens. 2 images below are from the Samyang 85mm..

    Thanks Sam. How heavy is the lens when you mounted it on A7

    It feels nice and balanced in my hands if I am honest. Very easy to hold and focus, actually feels just right in terms of size and weight. The Samyang is a very well built lens so you can feel its quality but it does work well with the A7 even with the extender. The Sony version is the same size as the Canon mount with an adaptor.
