Do you happen to have the original photos?
    Yes I do have the originals. I only made them 100% and then cropped. But I was standing and did NOT use a tripod and I used autofocus with the Nikkor D. With the Rokinon, I brought the focus to it's minimum distance and then moved in and out until I had the confirmation dot in the viewfinder.

    Here's a larger crop from both:

    Nikkor

    What I notice is that the Bokeh is much smoother with the Rokinon compared to the Nikkor 1.8 D.

    Cool! The rokinon is defenitely cleaner and sharper. How do you happen to have your color balance set up? I think your D7000 needs a little more color. I have mine at STANDARD, SHARPNESS +1, SATURATION +1.

    Try this and use your external flash(if you have one) pointing up to the ceiling.

    I usually use raw and don't worry about these settings. I sharpen and add saturation at post production. But in this case, the picture is straight raw file just resized for web.

    But so far, I'm more than impressed with this little wonder. I was used to heavy 2.8 zooms, so it's a charm to work with this one.

    Here's a 100% crop of my counter cleaning rag that was drying outside on my clothesline. D7000 @ 1.4. I'm impressed, really.

    It's really sharp, Marcel. Did you try it with f/2.8 and slower apertures? Because I found it get achromatic color when taking pictures in back light just like my 180mm at f/2.8.

    Cannot tell much about them Marcel: Nikkor image taken a little bit over-exposured making it looks not sharp and clear as Rokinon. Secondly, different focus points of each images makes the sharpnesses of them look different. The image taken by Rokinon has focus point almost at the center of it. The one taken by Nikon has focus point a little bit closer.

    I received my copy of this lens about a month ago and absolutely love it. Used it the other night to photography my friends band in very low light. I can't wait to receive my copy of the new 28mm f/1.8G. I'm hoping it's miles better than the more expensive 24mm f/1.4 like this lens is compared to the f/1.4

    Mojo, what body did you use for these? I really like the bokah, the computer screws on the first shot with a HDD look great.
