  1. 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).”

  2. Canon 100mm f/2.8L IS macro telephoto lens

    100mm-macro-IS-lens

    The Canon 100mm f/2.8L IS macro lens is well-suited to shooting small objects up close, as well as portraits. The macro lens has a 1:1 magnification, and the EF mount will work with both full frame and crop factor cameras (that means every Canon DSLR ever made).

    The image stabilization is useful for handheld video work, as well as portraiture. Most macro photographers will using a tripod, making IS less necessary. Autofocus is fast and accurate. The lens accepts 67mm front filters.

    The lens is optically near-perfect, with remarkable sharpness, virtually no distortion, and great imaging corner-to-corner.

  3. Canon 300mm f/4L IS telephoto lens

    telephoto-lens-rental

    The Canon 300mm f/4L IS telephoto lens is an incredible lens for sports, wildlife, and outdoor portraiture. The extremely long telephoto is an EF mount, and will work with both full frame and crop factor cameras.

    The lens, while not pocket-sized, is a pretty manageable size and weight when compared to other professional lenses in this focal range.  It close focuses better than any 300mm lens in Canon’s lineup. This makes it possibly the best lens ever made for faux-macro work like dragonflies, small mammals, and other tiny, skittish things.

    The built-in image stabilization makes a huge difference for photo and video on a lens this long. A retractable hood is built-in.The lens is exceptionally sharp even wide open, and backgrounds fall off to a beautiful bokeh. It can be fitted with our 1.4x teleconverter to function as a 420mm f/5.6 lens. Like many L-series Canon lenses, it accepts 77mm front filters.

  4. Canon EF 85mm f/1.8 Prime Lens

    EF-85mm

    Used by still photographers for portraiture on both full-frame and crop factor cameras, this Canon 85mm f/1.8 lens is also a perfect length for video interviews and presentations. A moderate telephoto lens, sports and nature might be suited better to something more telephoto.

    Low-light performance of f/1.8 is great, and this lens has very little vignetting even wide open. USM autofocus is great for still shooters, and the manual focus ring is great for both photo and video.  This lens has 58mm front filter threads.

    If you’re renting a lens for video, you may prefer the Rokinon 85mm T/1.5, with declicked manual aperture settings and an integrated focusing gear.
