IF the new $399 Rokinon 85mm f1.4 II manual focus lenses do not tempt you and you want to optimize for a lower price, $269 is what it takes to get into the new condition Samyang 85mm f1.4 MF lens with the Nikon Focus Confirm

The other Samyang and Rokinon 85mm f1.4 options [look for them in the aforelinked search results]:

+ M43rds for $248
+ Pentax K mount and Fuji X for $259
+ Nikon Z for $269

I know, I know, it is 2020, some of you will argue, there’s no way I’m dealing with Manual Focus Lenses in 2020. Next thing you’re gonna tell me to buy a Huawei P40 phone and spend 20 hours every single frakking week hunting for new hacks and loopholes to run Google Play on them πŸ˜‰

And you would be right if your typical subject matter or your style of photography requires autofocus. But a lot of things don’t move at all, others move in predictable ways, and in these COVID-stressful times there’s a certain level of relaxation and grounding when you use manual focus. And in some ways, it forces you to pay closer attention to the scene you are photographing…
