Contax Zeiss G 90mm f2.8 vs Rokinon 85mm f1.4
5 months ago

I have the budget to buy only one portrait lens from these two. Which one would you recommend? Rokinon is faster, and has a creamier bokeh, while Contax Zeiss G is sharper, has more contrast, more vivid colours. Tough choice. Is f2.8 enough for portraits, using a FF? The background separation seems better with the faster lens, which is Rokinon... But Rokinon seems to be real sharp only from f4, while the Contax Zeiss G is sharp even wide open, from f2.8... Anyone had both lenses in order to make some real world comparisons?
