Experience with Samyang/Rokinon 135mm f2.0?

I'd love to hear from anyone here who's used the Micro Four Thirds version of Samyang/Rokinon's manual-focus 135mm f2.0 prime lens. I want more reach than my Panasonic 35-100mm f2.8 provides, and I could use an extra stop of light, too. The only alternative for me is Oly's 40-150mm f2.8 for reach, but it doesn't help me with low light. The Sam/Rok is manual focus, and it'd be helpful to know how easy or difficult others have found it to use with an EVF's focusing aids. I would be using it mainly to shoot presenters at lecterns during corporate events. Optical quality appears to be excellent, and it's selling for just $430 right now, so seems worth considering.
