I bought the Rokinon branded 85mm 1.4 - I can tell you that it is an adjustment getting used to that razor thin DOF at 1.4 and the focus ring being a bit stiff, but since I'm shooting with the 5N the focus peaking helps.

I have almost given up shooting my daughter with it at 1.4 at 5 years old, she's still for a nanosecond and then, OOF
