How good is Rokinon?

I saw few deals for a lens called Rokinon 85mm f/1.4. How good is it?
Is it comparable to FA* 85mm f/1.4?

see the image and 100% crop

although there are some on this forum that simply hate this lens saying it does nothing a limited can't do, I like it and for the price I personally found it to be good value.
