Rokinon 85mm f/1.4 Aspherical Lens for DSLR Cameras for $199 Sale!

So I saw this sale, for an 85mm f1.4 which seems like a good deal for $200

Says ya can order it in several flavors of mounts, I see it available for Sony Alpha mount.

Question...I have a Sony A7R will I require an adapter?

I have the Novoflex Nikon to NEX adapter - which makes me think I need to order the Nikon mount version because my guess is the sony alpha mount needs the adapter...correct?

Anyone have experience with this lens, Weighs 1.4 lbs!!!, my main purpose for this lens would be portrait shots wide open at f1.4 hence curious if its sharp. I realize it may not be as sharp as the nikon 85m but for $200 i'm hoping its good enough.

what yall think? should I go for it? 85mm is one focal length that is missing in my collection. I wanted the nikon 85mm but thats like $2k

I found a review here...
