I'm a newbie to photography and well, new to this forum as well. I've been lurking though, and I must say, there is some unbelievably crazy talent hidden in some of the posts on here. Glad I finally signed up!
Anyways, to the actual question. I just recently purchased a Canon EOS 60D, it came with the stock 18-200mm lens, and I had the Canon 50 1.8 from my T2I. I'm mostly interested in portrait photography, and recently the Rokinon 85mm 1.4 caught my eye. I know on a crop sensor camera, its around 136mm. Theres no autofocus. I'm scared to jump the gun after reading about needing an "EF-S focusing screen", "auto confirmation chips", etc etc.
So, in your opinion and in my situation, is this lens worth purchasing? I was also looking at the 35mm f/2 which does have autofocus. I'm kind of torn, because for only $300, it seems like it'd be a great portrait lens. Thank you for your input!
