Default First shot with the Rokinon 85mm f1.4

This shot is at about f2.8:



First comment about that lens : The focus ring is stiff. However, you might expect that when it is -6 celsius...

More to come later today of tomorrow

Nice. I think you are going to have a lot of fun with that lens!

Super nice! Really like the composition of the second one. Bokeh is beautiful on both.

Sure looks like a nice lens. How's the quality of build?

James,

The quality of build is quite decent. The cover and the hood are "cheap" but those can be replaced. As mentioned, the focus ring is hard (stiff) but it is not a huge problem.

This is a good example of the shallow depth of field you can get with it (I really need to try to do some portrait with it):

Looks good and has a nice smooth bokeh although I see a bit of whirl in the first and third. I think the second is the nicest composition. Are you using focus peaking on the e-m1 or are you finding it easy to focus by eye?
