    Jon’s Take:

    “The Rokinon Cine DS lenses tend to flare more than their bigger-budget cinema lens counterparts, and maybe aren’t as sharp wide open. But in most situations, audiences won’t ever see their weaknesses. Most of the lenses are incredibly fast, up to T1.5. 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. 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).”

  7. Rokinon 14mm f/2.8 EF Ultrawide Lens

    14mm-wide-lens

    The Rokinon 14mm f/2.8 lens fits all Canon digital cameras and anything else with an EF or EF-S mount. 14mm is a great length for dramatic wide angles. This is the widest fullframe lens Rokinon offers.  It’s also a very useful wide on smaller sensors like APS-C, as well as smaller sensors like on Blackmagic and Panasonic cameras.

    It’s not particularly fisheyed, but there is some mustache distortion, which can be addressed in post processing. The lens is manual focus only, but focusing on the fly isn’t much of an issue with a lens this wide.

    This is the photo version of the lens, with a clicking aperture ring and no focus gears. We also have the cinema version, for video shooters. The lens hood is fixed, so round filters aren’t an option.

    This lens is our most popular ultrawide lens rental for photographers.

  8. Rokinon 85mm T/1.5 Cine Prime Lens

    rent-rokinon-85mm-t1-5

    Rokinon adapted their prime full-frame photo lenses for video shooters and created a revolution in affordable cinema optics.  Optically, this EF 85mm T/1.5 is the same lens at their 85mm f/1.4, but with a de-clicked aperture and teeth on the focus ring to accept any standard follow focus. This is the best-reviewed of all their cine primes, and the fastest long lens in our inventory.  Wide open, we think it holds its own against the Canon CN-E 85mm, which is incredible at this price point.

    This is our new go-to lens for interviews, and indispensable for events in low light. Even photo shooters can get some great images out of it, although if you prefer an autofocus prime, look at the Canon EF 85mm f/1.8.

  9. Rokinon 14mm T/3.1 Cine Ultrawide Prime Lens

    14mm-ultra-wide-ef-lens

    This Rokinon 14mm T/3.1 lens is the widest fullframe lens Rokinon offers, with more than 115-degree angle of view on a camera like the Canon 5D mark III.  It’s also a very useful wide on smaller sensors like APS-C, as well as MFT with an adapter.

    The aperture is declicked and the lens is fully manual, making it perfect for video and cinema applications. We also offer the photo lens for photographers. The lens hood is fixed, so round filters aren’t an option.  You’ll need a matte box and square filters.

    This lens is popular with Blackmagic camera shooters with EF mount cameras. It also tends to find its way onto productions with the Zeiss CP2 or Schneider FF lenses, when those fullframe lenses just aren’t wide enough.

  10. Rokinon Tilt-Shift 24mm f/3.5 Lens

    tilt-shift-lens

    The Rokinon tilt-shift 24mm f/3.5 lens is a wide-angle, full frame lens that allows both shift (+/- 12mm) and tilt (+/- 8.5°) adjustments.  This EF-mount lens is popular for architectural work, as well as adding a dreamy focus look to photos and video. It’s also useful for making real life look miniature, with a very distinct plane of focus.

    Usually, we find shooters using this lens at pretty narrow apertures, to regain some control over focus and keep the focal plane extra sharp.  Our tests put the sweet spot for this lens in the f/8 to f/11 range.  The minimum focus distance of 22 cm makes for some creative possibilities with macro, as well.

    The Rokinon tilt-shift lens is also sold as Samyang or Bower.  The front filter threads are 82mm.  The lens is fully manual.
