Now that's a portrait! Samyang or Nikon?

Cheers, mramshaw.

It's a Nikon. And it is my latest toy. It's the older model (85mm 1.4D), which I got second hand from a store in Saksatoon. This is one of the first pictures I took with it. I like the bokeh from this lens - very smooth.

Thanks for the info, 9 blades do seem to make for lovely bokeh.

Some guy on Amazon was whining about sharpness, but maybe he doesn't take portraits (which is what this lens seems to be known for).

Nothing wrong with older glass, I have been enjoying MF lenses a lot lately. You KNOW that it was you who took the picture, and not really inconvenient with shorter focal points.
