    Really glad you bumped this thread. I enjoyed reading it. The 1.2 has also been on my wishlist and I hadn

    Here is a link to a comparision between the two lenses, done by a professional wedding photographer:

    It is quite thorough and appears to be brutally honest, which is nice.

    Bryan has done a review as well, comparing it to the 1.2 quite a bit. Seems like focus accuracy was his main gripe.

    I think right now, having rented the Sigma previously, that I really liked it. And I have used the 85L, too. But, after my recent experience with the Rokinon 35 1.4, I will now be trying the Rokinon(Samyang) 85 1.4! For a meager $271 it should have a chance, and I plan to let it. Granted, it is manual focus with no confirmation, but my recent shooting has left me using manual focus much, much more...so in this regard, and for most who can't afford the Sigma of L, this is a really viable option!! I'll let you know...it'll (the Rokinon) be here on Friday, and I will give some examples, shortly thereafter!!

    Once you get bit by the MF bug you can't stop! $1000 takes you a long way in the MF world.

    Thanks Gregg. Not sure about the manual focus side of things for me though but if the IQ is outstanding the I

    Okay...I just got the Rokinon 85 1.4 yesterday. I've played around with it a little while delivering(on my lunch), and my first impressions were really good. It is fairly small, maybe the size of the Canon 85 1.8...it is NOT a brick like the 85 1.2L or my Zeiss Distagon ZE 35 1.4 !! It fits very well on my 1DIV. I will post some samples in another thread here in the next couple of days...
