All I ever read from Mo is how much he loves the 85 1.4. "Nothing better."

As with any "Star" lens, it is superb. Great portrait lens.

No, that lens is a piece of crap. Terrible purchase. I would recommend avoiding it all together.

It is the best lens I have ever used, amongst all brands.

Of course, it is the best lens amongst all my Pentax lenses, too. Here is a summary of mine which can show how it shines over others:-
