Manual 85mm f1.4-f1.8 ... Which one?!


I am currently a NEX-6 owner with some Legacy lenses. I have a 50mm f1.7 and a Vivitar 1 90mm f2.8 macro. I also have the 19mm f2.8 and 30mm f2.8 from Sigma.

I am interested about a nice portrait lens that would be shallower FOV than the 50mm. I think that a 80-85mm could be great with a big aperture like f1.4 or f1.8.

Here are some I found:

1) Canon FD 85mm f1.8 (160$)

2) Minolta Rokkor 85mm f1.7 (200-250$)

3) Samyang/Rokinon 85mm f1.4 (200-250$)

4) Canon FL 85mm f1.8 (140$)

What do you think is better? Do you have any suggestion?

Thanks a lot!

Sony Alpha NEX-6
