85mm is a fantastic portrait lens and 14mm for landscape or wild field astrophotography. What you need to know about Rokinon's Cine lenses is that they have no click when changing the Aperture (F stop) so that annoying sound will not affect the audio section of the video footage (As it otherwise does) additionally the F is calibrated in terms of light of transmission thus "T" that again is important for video shooting, rather than pure mechanical circumflex and area of aperture, as is otherwise used in still photography. Additionally these lenses have a wheel made on their focusing ring, for coupling with focusing apparatus of videographer, if needed and have the readings on lens body in horizontal orientation, so the personal operating lens, by the side of camera can read it better. In essence these are the same as still lenses but more refine and specialty tailored. Price is good. Quality is second to none at this or two to three times price range.

Keep in mind, no autofocus on this lens for still photographers.
