The difference is that there's a wealth of intermediate native options for the the E mount whereas in the RF mount you either go all out (85/1.2L), adapt, or... get this Samyang. I know I probably would go the latter route, because the L is very hard to justify in comparison - over 3x the price ($2700 at B&H) for just 1/3~1/2 stop larger aperture. Yes it's probably amazing but lots of people will never afford - or justify - the L.
I stick to EF mount and I'd just get the Tamron if I feel the itch for a fast 85.
f1.2 is used for lenses that are 1/2 a stop faster than f1.4. You do not get 1/2 a stop more light (most gets lost at sensor level), so only for more shallow DOF.
For EF I'd get the EF 85mm f1.8 USM if it should be able to capture action, and either the Tamron f1.8 or Canon f1.4 otherwise (both offer AF and IS, both render pretty nicely).
