as i am a developing photographer it is evident that there are some essentials, good camera, lenses, and good eqipment. the flash is a basic necessity and i hoped to purchase the rokinon as an adequate alternative to the more advanced flashes, much more suitable to my level. so far i have found it to exceed my expections.

I asked for this flash as a Christmas present... wanted an altenative to more expensive flashes that I've looked at on the internet. So far I am very pleased with the results. I am a novice photographer but so far the learning curve is rather quick for this flash. I also received a manual lense for christmas and this forced me to use the manual settings on the flash... Took me all of 1/2 hour to learn the settings and how/when to use them. I use this flash with a Nikon D40.

I am a Nikon fan, own many of its film SLR's, DSLR's and Nikkor lenses. I am one of those dummies who made quips that Nikon E Series lenses are NOT truly Nikkor lenses. As a matter of fact, they are better built than some of today's Nikkor kit lenses. I refused to put anything other than Nikkor lenses on my Nikon cameras. That is until I crave for a Super wide angle 8mm prime fun lens and 85mm f/1.4 prime portrait lenses. Nikon version of those lenes are just soooo expensive. After careful research and consideration, I bought a Rokinon 8mm, f/3.5 Manuel focus fisheye lens two months ago from O.Co. I have been so impressed by the 8mm’s performance that I decided to look into the Rokinon 85mm, f/1.4. I did my products comparison: Nikon Telephoto AF Nikkor 85mm f/1.4G $1700.00; Sigma 320306 85 mm F/1.4 Telephoto Lens for Nikon $969.00; Rokinon 8mm, f/1.4 with two Aspherical and two LD elements, Manual focus $269.00. The decision is easy, I ordered it from O.co and have it in my hands 4 days ago! First impression is great, it is well built (Rubber/plastic and Metal barrel), it also spot a metal mount. It does not look cheap (except the gold label) nor feel cheap. I wish they did not use the gold metallic label sticker though. I mounted it on my D7000 , many people complained that it has no “bullet” to help you align the lens to the mount, but I found that the white focus distance indicator line up with the white dot at the mount very well. The Manual focusing ring is well dampen and smooth as silk, making accurate focusing easy. With my D7000, I retain control for Matrix metering, Focus Confirmation Green Light, Aperture Priority mode, Auto Bracketing and iTTL flash. EXIF data is also available . I bought the NON-CPU version, only the Nikon cameras that can adjust for Non-CPU lenses can have all these functions. If you own a Nikon D90 or below, you will have to get the Chipped version of this , it costs only $30.00 more. The lens is sharp and has GREAT bokeh (de-focused area), manual focus is easy once you have a little practice. Get one and you will not regret your decision! Have Fun!

this lense is amazing for the price it seems like it will zoom forever. just make sure you buy a tri pod for the lense because it is heavy.

No problems with the transaction or delivery. Will buy from Overstock again. The lense takes some getting use to. No problems with the lense or the company either.

Works great as an off the camera flash cord allows you to put the light where you want it.

We have a Canon EOS digital camera and have 2 lenses prior to the purchase of this lense. For the money, it is worth it. Afterall, if you really price name brand lenses it is alot more then this lense. We purchased this lense to take pictures of our nephew running track events as well as on our trips. I would recommend a tripod as this lense would be heavy to use as a stand alone. We also purchased our tripod from Overstock. For the money, the picture quality is great.
