The Tamron SP 35mm f/1.8 Di VC USD is a decent, well-built prime lens. Image quality is good, and though it's fairly expensive for a third-party prime lens, it's build quality and close focusing distance almost make up the difference.

Rokinon 85mm T1.5 Review

9
The Rokinon 85mm T1.5 produces lovely images, reproduces color well, and is consistent in focus and bokeh. When comparing it to the ZEISS CP.3 85mm T2.1, you’ll notice very small differences.
