    Good Morning,
    I'm feeling a bit of GAS today and am wondering if any of you fine image makers might have some examples from the Rokinon 85mm/1.4 when used on a Fuji X series camera body. The price caught my eye over on the Fuji Rumors site. My apologies if I missed an already existing thread on the lens here.
    Thanks in advance.
    . . . David

    Here's a oof sample with the Metabones speedbooster attached. This is the Nikon F version but it should share the same optical formula.

    Same setup.
    Quite a nice lens for the price imo.

    I have an XE2 body on the way and I'm wondering with the faux split image manual focus ability how "usable" this lens may be, acknowledging the very shallow DoF when on a large aperture setting.
    So these examples are very helpful to me. Thank you.
