The 85mm f/1.4 Lens for Fujifilm X Mount from Rokinon is a manual focus, manual aperture telephoto prime lens with a focal length equivalent to 127.5mm in the 35mm format. It is ideal for portraiture and other telephoto applications. Its bright f/1.4 maximum aperture is very effective in low light situations and provides shallow depth of field focus. An aspherical lens element aids in the reduction of aberrations and UMC multi-layer coating minimizes flare and ghosting and contributes to overall sharp imaging. The lens offers a minimum focus distance of 3.3', its filter thread diameter is 72mm and included with the lens is a bayonet-type lens hood that deflects unwanted light and protects the lens from damage.

Rokinon 85mm f/1.4 Reviews
If you can live with manual focus this is definitely worth a look at half the price of the Canon (auto focus) equivalent.
Very good value for money. Rokinon 1.4/85 manual focus and manual aperture lens for full frame Sony E mount. Sharp lens wide open at f/1.4, no complaints.
GREAT PRICE, Great Lens for the Price, Lacks Auto Focus but savings of Hundreds of Dollars I can twist the Focus ring myself
Good for astrophotography
I purchased this lens to fill a gap between my 135mm and 50mm lenses for astrophotography. I have used this lens on numerous occasions now and I am very pleased with the results. I pair this lens with a Canon T6i for wider images than I get using a 135mm, but more detail than I get using a 50mm. I step it up to f/2.8 and get round stars to the edges.
Another Great Rokinon Lens for Astrophotography
This is the third Rokinon UMC lens I own for astrophotography having already purchased the 24mm f1.4 and the 135mm f2 from B&H. Although I cant comment on how they perform for street, landscape or portrait photography, they make excellent lenses for astro work at a friendly price tag. Users used to auto focus will be disappointed as these lenses do not offer AF, but their corner to corner sharpness along with very low coma make them almost perfect on unforgiving star images. Stop them down at least one stop and they really shine as is typical of any lens with this wide an aperture. B&H has always excelled as my go to source for everything photographic.
I've heard a lot of good reviews with Rokinon's design and performance. The moment I started testing with this new lens, I knew it had such valuable quality. It's more affordable and yet carries such a strong character
just another bad one?
3 stars because my usage of the lens could be on the extreme end. It may work for other applications. My one and only use for the lens was astrophotography. I therefore gave it THE TEST - stars. I tested the lens with a Canon 6D (full-frame) and a Canon 7D-II (APS-C). I will comment on the 7D-II results since a cropped sensor should hide some of a lens' imperfections. The test: using LiveView, I centered a moderately bright star and used 10X for focusing. I took a center photo, then adjusted such that I could take photos of the same star in each corner of the FoV. The results: I used FastRawViewer to inspect the photos. The center star photo was fairly sharp and the star was round. The corner star photos had significant distortion of the star. For all photos, all mid to fairly bright stars displayed significant purple/magenta fringing. I repeated this test on a few different stars. The results were the same. While I could reduce the fringing effect with some manual adjustments using DxO PhotoLab 6, it would be problematic if working on a batch of photos for stacking. The lens may work well/okay for daylight imaging. I did not test that. Of course, it could be the notoriously poor QC for Samyang/Rokinon lenses and I got a bad one. I did not bother getting a replacement, and just returned the lens for refund. Buyer Beware.
An amazing lens for the price
This lens comes with no electronics at all, and it is as manual as it gets. But what you do get is some nice sharp glass. The lens feels well made and the focus throw is long and perfectly dampened. This lens is pretty good in the center wide open, but it really shines at f2.8. Excellent value for money.
