  • Summary: It is a great quality lens! I am very satisfied with it! Of course it is manual focus but if you are a videographer this is what you need. Also at f/5/6 or f/8 you can easiy use the manual focus making photos.

Don't be skeptical because of the low price. Rokinon lenses PERFORM !!!!

  • Summary: The obvious attraction of this lens is it's incredibly low price for a very fast prime that can do double duty as both a regular and wide angle lens if you own a crop and full frame body. The obvious question you must ask yourself is whether a manual focus and manual stop-down lens will do what you need.

Great lens!!

  • Excerpt: A very solid lens. Very large diameter for a 35mm, which makes manual follow focusing nice. It's also a very heavy lens. The whole thing just feels very well built. Smooth aperture. very sharp. Focus is repeatable when rack focusing. Huge fan. It's also not that expensive for the quality.
  • Pros: Durable, Easily Interchangeable, Nice Bokeh, Strong Construction

Great lens & bokeh; built like a tank! Excellent F/1.4 in low light.

  • Summary: I debated between the Rokinon and the Canon F/1.4 EF 35mm autofocus lens. I researched footage from the Rokinon lens on Vimeo & Youtube only to find that Rokinon's low light 35mm had great, sharp pictures. As an Indie Filmmaker, I didn't want to sacrafice quality & sharpness. After the long debate I decided to take the plunge. Today I have absolutely no regrets! Picture quality is superb.

Finicky DOF but solid build

  • Summary: This is a fast lens. It's also a MF with an aperture ring that allows manual or automatic AE. It's very difficult to use for acquiring tack sharp images and seems to more easily lend itself to portrait style resolution. This may prove handy if you're covering dance/ballet events (or even weddings) where you don't necessarily want every pore and nose hair defined. Still, it's difficult and time consuming to get the focus just right, especially in low light.

Fantastic low light lens!

  • Summary: This is a fantastic lens. Very similar to the Canon 35mm f1.4 USM (just doesn't include any autofocus obviously). Keep in mind it's very big and very heavy. Also makes a great cinema style lens due to the low light capabilities & long throw focus ring.

Great lens for the price

  • Excerpt: I bought this lens for my Panasonic GH2, a camera with not too many lens options available. Attached to the DMW-MA1, this lens have given me great stills, but mostly is used for video. It's a little heavy in comparison to other lenses for this camera, but it adds heft to an already light camera system. <br />The focus is great, although a little soft as you open up the aperture. The focus ring is smooth manually, and works great with a follow focus attached.
  • Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Easily Interchangeable, Nice Bokeh, Strong Construction
  • Cons: Heavy, Slow Focus
