The Samyang Rokinon 85mm f1.4 is an affordable short telephoto lens with a bright focal ratio that's ideal for portrait work. Like other Samyang lenses, it's manual focus only, but comes in at a considerably lower price point than similar lenses from the big camera companies.

This lens is pretty good. I am using this on the Sony A7 since there is no other native portrait lens currently available. The build quality is good for the price. It is sharp once stopped down past f2.8. Wide open there is some CA and slight softness.
