Rokinon 85mm f/1.4 AE lens review

Just a quick overview of the lens:
Overall rating….. 6/10
Pros
Great value for money
Very sharp, even wide open
Really fast glass
Convenient focal length for both full frame and crop-sensored cameras
Minimal focus breathing (good for videos)
9-Bladed aperture
Aperture exposure mode works with this lens
Autofocus confirmation chip (NIKON ONLY!!!)

Cons
Some mostly green aberrations when wide open
Stiff focusing ring
Manual focus gets in the way of capturing a moment or even in staging some shots
