Pentax DA 50mm f1.8 or Rokinon 85mm f1.4 for first prime lens?
1

I'm on the eve of purchasing my first DSLR, a Pentax K-30 with the 18-55m WR kit lens. I would like to complement this with a prime lens. I've narrowed it down to a Pentax DA 50mm f1.8 or Rokinon 85mm f1.4. The main use will be a general purpose carry around with an emphasis on outdoors. I'm comfortable with manual focusing. Both seem to get good reviews, so I'm more interested on how they perform on this specific camera and which will be more versatile for everyday shooting and occasional video.
