I was out taking a few pics today with my Samyang 85 on my 5d2. Definitely not easy to get eyes in perfect focus through the view finder, and especially noticeable wider than around f4 ..

Here's an example of a shot that looked fine in the viewfinder but was a bit soft on further inspection..

I will just have to remind myself to slow down, stop down, and take more shots. Running and gunning at 1.4 is out of the question.

Not sure if anyone is still here....:P

Anyway I just want to know if the Canon version comes with AF confirm? Can you add one for the Canon version or do I need to go with the Nikon one?

so i got approved for an amazon store card with a decent limit and decided to pick this guy up with next day shipping for only 10 bucks!! lol, man i gotta say..this lens is sharp!! i love it and manual focus really isnt that hard but a lil tricky at 1.4. the focus ring is really smooth just like my old samyang 14mm. i do gotta ask is there a better option for a hood? that thing is pretty weak feeling and kinda of a pain to put on and off.
