Im new to this forum but not new to photography. I recently purchased a Rokinon 85mm f/1.4 with the chip in it.

I absolutely love it for portraits but when I went to use it in studio with a monolight strobe I noticed that all the pictures that were shot faster than 1/160 had a big black area in the photo. Almost like there is no flash in that area but im positive there is.

Any ideas on how to fix this? Maybe the lens is faulty or I should use an ND filter to keep the numbers in the right range?
