Legacy vs Modern

I don't know where to post this, so since I'm shooting with the A7S I'll post here.

I just shot a wedding, and one of the lenses I used is an Olympus 135 / 2.8. Now I'm thinking about shooting more weddings and I have a question:

  • Will a new Rokinon 135 / 2 perform better than a legacy lens, such as my Oly 135 / 2.8?
  • Am I out of my mind and I should just get a modern SONY lens with automatic bits?

I'm considering getting the Rokinon 85 / 1.4 and 135 / 2.0 if they're good lenses. Otherwise I'll bite the bullet and buy the Batis 85 and some other tele lens.

Thanks
