I have a little spare cash and don't know which way to go. I've been wanting a battery grip for my D600 for some time. I want to get the OEM grip as I had a bad 3rd party grip previously.

My problem is, I also want a Rokinon 85mm F1.4 lens. I have both the 14mm and 35mm and both are now my two favorite lenses.

I have a Nikkor 105mm F2.5 which is my go to portrait lens right now, but have seen lots in the Rok 85mm that I really like.

So, what would you do? Go with the grip and make shooting in portrait easier? Or go with the great Rokinon 85mm F1.4, even though I have a Nikkor 105mm F2.5?

I know, not a big deal, but interested in what you'd do.

OK, I am impressed. Anyone compared this lens with the nikon and canon equivalent. Other than lack of AF, there is nothing inferior? Or is there? Maybe QC issues?

I took this of myself, not easy with a manual lens at f1.4 while playing guitar.

Is the Vivitar 85mm 1.4 the same as this lens? I can't find it new anywhere, but I found a used copy with "Fits Canon" written on the box. It looks similar, but the focus ring is notably different.

Like this
