    Leica Summilux 80/1.4 vs Rokinon 85/1.4

    Just a quick test to see how Rokinon shine agaist Summilux. Rokinon is really good at f1.4 to f2 at f2.8 the Leica became micro contrast sharpness. The bokeh I have to say the Rokinon is very very good even better than the Leica. What do you think ?.

    Is the Rokinon the same manual-focus lens sold in the US under such brand names as Vivitar and Bower?

    If so, it's good to know that the Rokinon performs well... although I have a hard time imagining the typical Leica owner sitting around thinking, "Hmmm... should I use my Summilux or my Rokinon? Decisions, decisions..."

    Kudos to you for being open-minded enough to make the comparison!

    Hi Ranger

    Yes Rokinon, Vivitar, Bowers, Samyang they are all the same. I will still use the leica it very well build and feel good in the hand. The different is very mininal just like Toyota vs Ferrari they all have to run at 100km/h . Other people test vs Carl zeiss 85mm point to the same conclusion that this korean lens is actually very good value for the money and rival many other lens. Except in flare control but for portrait not that many people shooting against the sun

    Now the question is does Leica worth 10x the cost use price as of now ? I wouldn't buy it now but since I already have it I will just keep it . Will test the Elmarit 9/2.8 agaist Rokinon tomorrow


    Leica bad bokeh at f1.4 look at the circle



    Rokinon bokeh look better at 1.4




    Leica improve at f2

    Leica at f2.8
