It's been a long time coming but I want to show you a few of my favorite Lenses as you may know or may not know about but I'm a big fan of Cine T lenses. This one may be the best purchases I've come to realize to be a smart investment. So why do I like this Rokinon 85mm F1.4 Aspherical len so much? It has some awesome low features that I'd personally like. The Manual aperture and a smooth focus ring. What I'm more impressed by the Len is it's ability of optics that hold their own against much more expensive lenses out there on the market like the Canon L and Zeiss lenses. There is no doubt that the Rokinon 85mm F1.4 is very impressive optically.
First it very sharp even in a wide open shots, but one of the sharpest lenses for the price value of $299.99. When I'd use the 85mm Len, images are so crisp but it help determine where the critical focus is. It's also a very fast lens at F1.4 which means two things: Amazing looking Bokeh and a Killer in low-light performance.
It can pick up any available light very well in night shots. This Len also have a very good contemporary Cinematic look for you videographers out there and wholes it won in challenging lighting conditions which is something that some lenses often struggle.
Rokinon 35mm F1.4 is an excellent optics for my sony line-up of bodies.
Giving the Rokinon Lenses here a score of 8.5/10

While I'd preferred low contrast settings (Flat Profile) while in video mode to get rich details while in post-processing. The build quality on this Len is solid but absolute strong. This would be good Len for the value. Note that this is a manual focus Len and will take patients to get used to working with. You also have the Rokinon 35mm & 85mm T1.5 Cine Len that I'd own and the Rokinon F2.8 Ultra Wide. All lenses are $389 and up or just a bit more but that only depends on the model of DSLR you have.
