The is a pre-wed photo shoot of Elly & Obert at Perdana Lake Garden.
I take the opportunity to do a field test of my newly acquired Samyang 85mm F1.4 (Non AE) lens. This is a full manual lens. Similar to my existing Samyang 8mm fisheye, Nikon D7000 Non CPU lens function helps the camera to operate under auto exposure. At F1.4, the D.O.F is very shallow, thanks to the Nikon D7000 new focus guide confirmation in the viewfinder (ala Rangefinder camera)… manual focusing is a breeze. I got 90% success rate on accurate focus.
This is a great lens, the built & the glass is at par with Nikkor equivalent… the lens hood is a bit flimsy. The bokeh is creamy, very sharp at wide open… exhibit some CA on the subject with very bright background. At 1/4th of the Nikkor 85mm F1.4 G price.. it give the Nikkor owners a run for their money.
All images captured with Nikon D7000 + Samyang 85mm + Tokina 11-16mm (on the last 2 pics).
