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.

i've just seen the rest of the photos and i must say the lens looks good! much better than the yongnuo and even better than the canon versions

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.

still nothing...
i'm guessing this lens has been forgotten in a box somewhere and we'll get a price when someone trips and spills that box ;D
