Nice captures... I wonder how this lens matches up against the Sony 85mm f/1.8?
Hi,

the Sony 85mm 1.8 has clearly the better af system. At f1.8 both were equally sharp, but my Samyang already had the nicer backgrounds (without pixel peeping). And with f1.4 it is another world :D
From the colors the Samyang is a bit warmer than the Sony.
I sold my Sony after 2 weeks with the Samyang because the af is not that important to me for people shots. If you want I can show you some unscientific comparison shots I did with both.

Love the rendering! I have the 85 1.8 FE and will admit the bokeh is not as creamy (still nice). Right now however I need the better AF speed of the 1.8 as I also use the lens for action/stage photos.

Sure, if AF is important to you the 85 1.8 is the lens to go

The rendering looks wonderful. How is the AF response?
C-af with Eye-af works great. S-af got much better with the recently released firmware 04. All in all my sony 85mm 1.8 was exceptional in autofocus. For me the picture Quality was more important.
