Pentax mount 85mm f1.4 lenses

The market seems to be flooding lately with variations of a Pentax K mount 85mm f1.4, under the brand names Bower, Vivitar and Rokinon.

That's a very attractive combination of focal length and aperture.

Anyone tried any of these, with any pictures to show how well they perform on digital SLRs?

Thanks much.

There's also the Polar and the Vivitar Series 1. I think they're all the same, but there are a few threads with pics and everything:

(just do a quick search for "vivitar 85mm" and you should see them)

Thanks for the reference. Pretty well-done review(s) and after a quick look, they look pretty darn good when you consider the price!
