The 85mm f/1.4 IF MC Aspherical Lens by Samyang is an ideal portrait lens. The f/1.4 aperture allows a great deal of light in, and its focal length is perfect for capturing undistorted facial features. Each lens within its system has a multi-layered, anti-reflective coating which reduces reflections of light on the lens surface, and the internal focusing system provides smooth, grab-free manual focusing, which is also conducive to assured portrait photography. An iris diaphragm design helps to produce excellent bokeh, the slightly blurred, out-of-focus background that is a desired component of quality portraiture. Another budget-friendly, quality lens by Samyang.
This lens includes a special chip that allows the lens to work with your Nikon camera's focus confirm, auto exposure, auto metering and auto white balance functions

this lens is absolutley amazing , the only problem this lens don't have AF is Manual but if you are good no problem and you save hundreds and hundreds of pounds .The quality in the pictures are extraordinary. 101 % recommend.
This is my second lens from them and the Sony cameras make them very easy to use with focus peaking. The other lens I have is the 12mm, which is solid, but this 85 is BIG and HEAVY. Don't get me wrong, it is built like a tank and everything feels very well made, but it is so heavy that I do not take it out as much as I would like. It is actually heavier than the old school nikon 85mm I have. I think this lens, the 12mm and the kit 16-50 complement each other quite nicely. If Samyang made a compact lens in the 17-20mm range for Sony I would dump the kit lens as the Samyangs all seem to be superb.
Taking shots at f1.4 is a little challenging as the depth of field is so narrow (part of this lens' charm), but stop it down a bit and it is much more forgiving. Wide open the quality is pretty good, but zooming in you will see a bit of improvement from stopping down to f2.8 anyway.
Perfect for portraits and slow moving subjects, but be aware of the weight if you were planning on lugging this around.
