Canon’s 85/1.8 EF is better in just about every way. Faster, quieter AF, less fringing, fairly sharp throughout. But of course, considerably higher price.

Are you sure it's a manual focus lens, OP? Specs say it has autofocus.

Adorama says it has autofocus- not sure why manual focus is listed here.

Lens review: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jPZJ72ONb8s

In short:
- the autofocus is slow and quite noisy, but works
- significant amount of purple fringing at f1.8
- soft image in the corners at f1.8

If they have a Photoshop profile for this lens (I am not sure they have it), with a 1 button, you can take of purple fringing. How is it compared to Canon EP 85 mm quality?

Canon EF 85mm is not that much higher price if you go used. And I would trust a used Canon over a new cheap noname lens like this one.

cheap is relative, and it's better to just state your price range.

Back when I bought my first Canon rebel, I thought my 55-250mm took nice shots at the zoo.
