I have the Nikon 35 1.4G, but reading good things about the Rokinon, I placed an order on last Tuesday and got it today. Just took a few snap shots at f1.4, 2, and 2.8. Not impressed at all if not disappointed. Tomorrow, I will compare the two side by side. I have several other manual focus lenses, so manual focus is not a problem for me. If its performance is not up to the hype, it will go back to buydig.
Did you get a bad copy? I've seen reports of bad copies. In fact, that's my number one worry with this sort of lens. Quality control isn't great... guess I still have to find out on mine.
About the only negative thing I've read about a good copy of the lens is that it loses a bit of contrast at 1.4
But I've seen some good 1.4 shots... and obviously good shots stopped down more so. Otherwise all the reviews regard it as stellar and it measures up quite well to it's more expensive competitors.
