    Mitakon Zhong Yi also has a 'slower' 85mm/2.0, probably around 150-160 USD

    I think this 85mm/1.2 is a nice lens, the price is high though.
    I have Samyang (Rokinon) 85mm/1.4 , 1st version Nikon mount. Less expensive, just 3xx USD.

    I'd just buy an FD 85mm f1.2L for that kind of money. Most of the Mitakon lenses have been so-so in terms of image quality. Not terrible, but not great.

    As tkbsic said above, there are probably some nice lenses at that focal length and price point if you are willing to go second hand. A Contax Zeiss 85mm f1.4 is that range and is very well regarded.
