    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 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!

  • Limited Close Focus, but a great lens!

    I recently rented a Nikon AF Nikor 85mm F1.4 and I have to say, I like the Rokinon better. Found I had to manually focus the Nikon AF version to get consistently sharp images, so decided I didn't need the AF feature. I also think the Rokinon is a bit sharper wide open. The only down side to this lens is its close focus limit of about 10ft. You won't be getting any tight head shots with this lens, but head and shoulder on out work just fine. I use this with my D70s, D200 and D700. It works great on all three, but on the D70s you can only use it in manual mode... no auto shutter or aperture. On the D200 and D700 it works great in Aperture priority mode. This is a great lens for what it is for... the plane of focus at f1.4 is razor thin so careful focusing is required to obtain the best results. I use the "lean in and out" method. Prefocus the lens and then lean in and out with your whole body to get the plane of focus just where you want it. At the minimum focus distance and set to f1.4 I can get the surface of a subject's eye in focus or the tips of their eye lashes, not both. That's thin! This is a great lens, and in the right hands, it will produce amazing results. But it will take practice.... Enjoy!

  • Rokinon 85mm f1.4 for Nikon

    I purchased this lens after reading as many reviews as possible. I was particularly interested in a fast portrait lens with smooth bokeh and this lens has exceeded my expectation. The built quality is very good and solid with smooth rotation of the focus ring. I have the non-cpu lens so I use aperture priority setting on my D300s which works like a charm. Manual focus is challenging at times, even when using the green range finder dot in the view finder. Therefore I have ordered the katz eye for Nikon D300s and I can't wait to give it a test run. Results so far are outstanding! I love this lens and I notice that it is becoming my prefered lens over the 18-55mm kit lens. Bokeh is smooth as butter and that comes at 1/5 of the price of a Nikon 85mm! A no brainer to me and if you are considering this lens, you can rest assured that you won't regret buying it. It takes some practice getting the focus spot on but that is to be expected with a dept of field that is as thin as a sheet of paper at f1.4. Two thumbs up! Cheers, Peter

  • Good Lens

    It's pretty good lens. It doesn't fit the camera I bought it for but it fits my other camera so it's not a loss. It's my fault for not checking comparability. But overall it's good for the price.

  • I never did use it.

    I'm pretty sure that I would have enjoyed the product if I could have gotten it to fit my camera.I have a D40x Nikon and I couldn't get it to latch on.

  • Rokinon 85mm 1.4 lens

    This lens is the best photographic purchase I have made in some time. It is extremely fast with excellent image quality and colors. The price is easily $1000 under anything comparable offered by Nikon, Canon or Sigma. I'm a freelance photographer and enjoy taking portraits. This lens does not offer automatic focus but once you overcome that, it will deliver beautiful results. delivered a well-priced product in a timely manner, well packaged. Thank you. Richard

    The lens did not have auto focus. The manual focus did not respond that well. Overall a bad lens. Cannot recommend!

  • Good Lense for the Price

    I was hesitant of this product due to the significant price difference between it and the Nikon version. However, I have been plesantly surprised. It takes a bit of playing with it to get the focus right, but when you do the results are amazing. (I have D60). Overall a good lense for the price.

Hello cantextaylors, this is a manual lens. As such, You need to put his camera on manual mode by turning his dial to “M”. You can change the apertures on the lens itself. If you need any further help, you can call Rokinon customer service at 800-441-1100. Have a great day! overstockcustomercare1 on Jul 2, 2014
