In what seems to be almost a weekly occurrence, Samyang (Rokinon in the US) has announced yet another new lens. This time it's a second generation 85mm f/1.4 autofocus optic for full-frame Sony E-mount cameras. The new AF 85mm F1.4 FE II incorporates two new features: a Focus Hold button, and a Custom Switch.
