    Got this lens in PK mount because I had A PK Lens Turbo lying around (the plan was to use it with Samyang 14mm but results were disappointing). Works (or I like the results) well with Samyang 85mm/1.4:

    My mother, she is pretty difficult to photograph so I am happy with the picture

    All wide open, hand held and without flash. Exposure times are bit too long (as always with me) but quite nice results.

    First two are nice.

    Third one is a bit soft though.

    Focusing a 1.4 maximum aperture lens is a tough job and I tend to shoot with a too long a exposure time. I think that adding contrast and sharpening more would make all these photos better.

    This Samyang lens is a bargain at about 300 euros. I have a Contax 85mm/2.8 Sonnar too so I purchased this lens to be used wide open and I haven't even tested it without Lens Turbo yet.

    Pretty outstanding for a fast portrait lens!
