this is a manual focus only lens, there is no autofocus. Though you might have a focus confirmation dot in the viewfinder at the bottom left.

Hi i have been using this amazing lens - rokinon 85mm on my sony a350 and also my sony vg10 with the LAEA2 adapter with great MF results. But i don't see it as a AF lens on sony! You may tell me, how to make it AF.
