I would kill for ANY 85 1.4, but this one especially hurts.

Why so melodramatic when you can still find this on fleabay as a "Rokinon"? Not much of a difference unless you're stuck on the Vivitar branding.

Correction: Even the Vivitar brands can easily be bought. However, the Vivitar costs more than the others, and I chose to pay the extra for the cosmetic 'improvements'. I personally think it is a better choice.....

Lens SOLD.
