I've been eyeing either Rokinon/Samyang RF 85 1.4 or Canon RF 85 2 but I went with former. I understand they are Rokinon and Samyang is same company but B&H had Rokinon at $699 and Samyang at $599 so I went with Samyang. I'd assume they are of same quality? Can anyone comment on this? Also I saw a thread on the autofocus issue but I can't find it. Was the AF issue with R5 only? I have RP.

I have the R and was interested in this lens.  The canon RF 85 is f2.  Yes it is stabilized and has macro functions but again it is f2.

how does this lens work in lower light? Is the lack of stabilization hurt much?

The focus issues you mentioned was in the R5/R6. The Samyang needed a firmware update.   Let us know what you think about this lens
