  • Excerpt: I ordered this lens with a T-mount adapter for my new Sony NEX-7, and I have to say I wasn't expecting it to perform as well as it does. It is solidly constructed, with no rattles or bad fit and finish; it was perfect out of the box.

Quality Lens, Bargain Price Rokinon500f8

23 September 2014
  • Excerpt: As with other Rokinon lenses that I own (14f2.8, 24f1.4 and 85F1.4), the Rokinon 500f8 combines high quality optics with excellent mechanical features. A tripod and shutter release are a must to get the best performance with this lens. Images are sharp with excellent contrast.
  • Pros: Durable, Strong Construction
