The optical design of the mirror and mirrorless versions of the lenses 14 / 2.8 and 85 / 1.4 are significantly different. Some Samyang lenses may be sold under another brand - Rokinon.

There is also an interesting premium manual lens line XP for full-frame cameras:

The number of ordinary manual lenses from Samyang / Rokinon can no longer be counted. In addition, there are a huge number of movie lenses Samyang / Rokinon line Cine and Proffesional Cine (XEEN series).

    So is it autofocus or not?

      This is an exceptionally manual lens with manual focus.

    I would like to draw your attention to the professional focus of the lens. A wide angle without afthofocus (it is not required), an excellent distance scale with markings up to 3 meters (hello to all kenons and nikons!), As well as fixing the focus so that it does not accidentally come true (hello to almost all lenses from Fujifilm, with which to work in manual mode is essentially impossible!). It is very interesting if Samyang will release something similar with other focal lengths, especially 24mm, or even 20mm. It's just great that the Nikon version has contacts, it's just a godsend, and even at such a low price. And the last thing - the optical formula and special elements! Apparently, Samyang decided to improve his already excellent old 14mm lens, since he always sold it with a bang.
