Rokinon 12mm f/2 and 85mm 1.4 on Fuji?

Has anybody used both of these lenses? Thinking about picking them both up...

I generally don't shoot off brand lenses, but they are quite cheap, something Fuji doesn't make, and are for focal lengths that I rarely use... but, would be nice sometimes for special shots. The 14 and 90, while nice, just aren't something I see myself using very often to warrant dropping 500+ on.

So what have you? Should I pick them both just to have a UWA and Mid telephoto bokeh creamer for an occasional long portrait? I've got about 300 sitting in my paypal account and could go for either..

I also thought about the 85mm 1.8d Nikon, a nice little lens, but after cost, plus adapter, it's about the same size/weight, slower, probably less sharp, and more expensive.

I am fine with MF focusing...doesn't bother me.
