Trying out the Mitakon Zhongyi Speedmaster 65mm F1.4

Trying out the Mitakon 65mm F1.4 lens. The lens feels quite heavy, and I feel strange taking a photo handhold, I feel like I am going to make the photo blurry. The lens has a very soft focus at F1.4, not sharp, though the detail and sharpness improved a lot by F2 and F2.8. But it loses that soft render. Anyway, here are some samples:

Also, trying out embedding photo from Smugmug, and it works quite well it seems.
