    Samyang lenses are all MF isn’t it ? Although that’s not a problem with such a wide angle 🙂
    The 85/1.4 of the same company was of high optical level, let’s wait to have a review 😉

    • you miss-spelled “high quality”, it should be “in some conditions acceptable but for price not worthy”. besides, what is 85mm with bokeh worse then 80-200

      • this is google translation from Polish, that’s why is in quotes

        • WoutK89

          He wasnt talking about actual translation I suppose

    It says IF so it’s internal focussing?? Not sure what MC stands for.
    Looks promising. Hope the price is kept low.

      MC isn’t for Multi Coated ?

    “highest quality imaging” – ROTFL 😀 😀 😀
    Although they are cheap lenses, cheapest primes in it’s ranges you’ve ever seen, they are far from anything you would call “highest”….

      If this lens is half as good as the 85 f/1.4, i expect it to kick the Canon EF 14m f/2.8 L:s pricey little butt.
