  1. Rokinon 135mm T2.2 Cine Lens

    Comments Off on Rokinon 135mm T2.2 Cine Lens

    The Rokinon 135mm T2.2 EF Mount Lens is a manual focus telephoto lens for full frame video cameras, perfect for the filmmaker balancing the needs of a production against a tight budget. All of Rokinon’s Cine DS lenses feature a de-clicked aperture, consistent color reproduction across focal lengths, standard focus gears, and T-stop markings on both sides of the barrel.

    We rent a complete set of Rokinon Cine DS lenses, from 8mm to 135. Samyang, Rokinon, and Bower are three identical lens brands all made by the same company, using the same optical formula.

    This lens is a great length for close ups and portraits, especially on full frame cameras. It can also be mounted on super 35 and APS-C cameras, making it a more extreme telephoto.

    Jon’s Take:

    “The Rokinon Cine DS lenses tend to flare more than their bigger-budget cinema lens counterparts, and won’t match for corner sharpess wide open. But in most situations, audiences won’t ever see the difference between them. Their greatest strength is accessibility on a budget, with a relatively small size and weight. For shoots without an AC, they should always be considered, simply because they are easier to handle (and less expensive to replace).”
