Yongnuo rebrand?

yongnuo version has a front filter of 58mm, same as the canon, while this has 67mm...although the layout seems to be the same between the 2 and different from the canon 85 1.8

Whilst I am more interested in a new OEM EF85/1.8 I welcome the small form factor and will be interested in the IQ of this lens.

This brand actually makes some pretty decent stuff. I had one of their fully manual lenses for my M5 and it was very nice. I would be interested in one of these for travel photos if it's cheap enough.

Can it be worse than the Canon 85mm f1.8? Not that I am saying that the Canon is a bad lens but it is an old one. It might even have better coatings than the Canon so maybe less flare and CA. This is just speculation.

I bet the AF won't be up to Canon standards though.  :'(
