    Default auto focus of Samyang lens on D7000 body ?

    Hi, I would like to ask if we can use auto focus on body like the D7000 with Samyang lens ?

    Thanks and regards.

    .... all samyang lenses are manual focus. Try to do some basic research on the samyang websites and reading reviews on samyang lenses.

    Samyang lenses are design to be use as Manual Focusing lens.
    camera bodies with or without focusing motor is irrelevance

    one is Hyundai and one is BMW, LOL
    I'm not say those who buy Hyundai car can't afford BMW, but is more likely they won't consider buying a BMW instead.

    Zeiss makes lenses dedicated to Sony. Those can AF.

    But even this BMW can't give the satisfaction of AF after increasing the cost by multifold. I must try it out one day man and see how good the glass is..

    It is very good... but sometimes people feel it is much better than it really is... mind plays tricks when expensive and branded.
