The Rokinon 85mm f/1.4 Aspherical Lens for Samsung NX Camera gives you a telephoto field of view (equivalent to 127.5mm in 35mm format) that's ideal for portraits. The very bright f/1.4 maximum aperture helps you with low-light photos. With hybrid aspherical lenses and multi-layer coating, you will produce sharply defined images with a minimum of flare and ghosting. The 85mm lens focuses as close as 3.3' (30.48 cm) from the lens and includes a lens hood.

I've always wanted an 85MM lens for my Olympus DSLR but there simply hasn't been anything in that focal length. Now there is the m4/3 75MM f1.8, but it's close to $1000 with a lens hood. I was worried this lens would be soft or cheaply made, but even wide open it is sharp enough. Shooting at f1.4 I wouldn't expect any lens to be razor sharp (except maybe my Pan-Leica 25MM), but this is more than sharp enough. My main purpose in buying this lens was for portraits, but it's great for other purposes as well. It's well made with nice smooth focusing and a solid feel. It's a little big and heavy on a m4/3 body (I have an E-M1), but I thought it balanced well and was never aware of its weight or bulk while shooting. I have much bigger and heavier lenses that I use on the E-M1. The five stars take into consideration the price of this lens. I'm sure the Zuiko 75MM 1.8 is better, but I wonder if it is 3 times better. I doubt it.
