Here are the strictly manual native options. I've not used any of these:

  • Mitakon Speedmaster 85mm F1.2
  • Samyang 85mm F1.4 MF
  • Meyer-Optik Görlitz Somnium II 85mm F1.5
  • Viltrox PFU RBMH 85mm F1.8
  • Meike 85mm F1.8
  • Generic 85mm F1.8
  • Lensbaby Velvet 85mm F1.8
  • Mitakon 85mm F2
  • Zeiss 85mm F2.4 Loxia
  • Kipon Iberit 90mm F2.4
  • Meike 85mm F2.8 Macro
  • Mitakon 85mm F2.8 1-5X Super Macro

The Meike F1.8, Viltrox, and Zeiss Loxia have full electronics. The Viltrox was being closed out for $200 for a while.

I have adapted some 85mm primes. The Canon EF 85mm F1.8 USM was on sale for $269 for a while and is a pretty good lens. I bought my Tamron SP 85mm F1.8 Di USD for less.

Thanks much. Thats a handy list.

I will check them out
