Got the NX30 - Which Portrait lens to complete the Kit Lens?

Hi guys !

I just got my NX30 with the Kit lens (no choice in UK).

I used to have a 550D with a 50mm 1.8 as I love doing bokeh and especially portrait.

My problem with the NX mount is that I don't know what I should buy...

First : f1.8 MAX

35 mm / 45 mm or 85 mm ? I can't make my decision...

Here are my first choice :

- Samsung 45mm f/1.8

- Samyang 85mm F1.4 Aspherical IF

- Rokinon 85mm F1.4

I don't see any other compatible with a NX mount.

I have never worked with a 85MM, I think the 45mm is a bit more versatile even if as I said, I have the kit lens too for landscape etc... But 85MM...

What about 35mm ? I saw some 35mm 1/4 and some people apparently use them for portrait but i'm not sure, it would be a bit to wide I think, and I would have to be to close from the model ?

I don't know, as I said.. I'm lost.

I'm really looking forward to read your advice, I need this lens ASAP and can't make a decision...

If you have an other model that I don't know, feel free to let me know

Thanks a lot guys
