Samyang wins on IQ and CA.

Sadly, the 85/1.8 *cannot* be worse in terms of mid/low-light/AF-C AF than the Samyang.  On the days the Samyang hits, it *hits* and it's a beautiful amazing lens. And I said mid-light for a reason.

And given that you're implicitly on FF with the cost structure thereof, have you considered the much sharper, slightly less beautiful Sigma 85/1.4 as twice the price that can actually hit AF?
