From the ManufacturerThe Rokinon 85mm F1.4 Aspherical Lens is razor sharp and crystal clear for photo and video. It is widely used as a portrait lens to shoot ultra-bright & vivid portrait pictures. Rokinon’s 85mm lens stacks up extremely well against the Canon EF 85mm f/1.2 and against the Nikon 85mm f/1.4. It is also the least expensive lens of its kind in the market! The lens is manual focus and the aperture needs to be controlled directly from the lens, but at a cost of less than $300, how can you go wrong?
The Rokinon 85mm lens is made with mostly glass and aluminum components and the build quality is superb. Its focusing is silky smooth with an internal focusing (IF) mechanism so that the physical size remains constant during focusing. There are little or no chromatic aberrations and Bokeh is just about perfect. The lens comes complete with a removable lens hood, lens caps, lens pouch, instruction manual and one year warranty. The lens is available in the following mounts: Canon, Nikon, Pentax, Sony & Olympus 4/3. There is also a slightly more expensive version (Model # 85MAF-N) for Nikon that features a built-in focus confirm chip.
