Product Highlights
  • Canon EF Mount Lens
  • Aperture Range: T1.5 to T22
  • One Aspherical and Two HR Elements
  • UMC Coating
  • Geared Focus and Aperture Control Rings
  • De-Clicked Aperture Ring

The Canon EF mount Rokinon 35mm T1.5 Cine AS UMC Lens was developed primarily for film and video applications. The cine version of Rokinon's 35mm lens features industry-standard gearing for the focus and aperture ring, and the aperture ring has been de-clicked for smooth iris pulls. The aperture and focus scales have also been relocated to the side of the lens, where it is easier for focus pullers to read them.

This lens is compatible with full-frame sensors and can also be used on APS-C-sized sensors, where the 35mm-equivalent focal length will be 56mm. The optical construction incorporates two high refractive index elements and one aspherical element to reduce chromatic aberrations and distortion to produce sharper imagery. Additionally, a UMC coating has been applied to lens elements to minimize lens flare and ghosting for more contrast-rich images.

Wide-angle prime lens is well-suited to use in a broad variety of shooting situations.
Fast T1.5 maximum aperture benefits working in low-light conditions and provides greater control over focus placement for shallow depth of field applications.
Two high refractive index elements and one aspherical element reduce chromatic aberrations in order to produce greater sharpness and clarity.
UMC coating improves light transmission and suppresses lens flare and ghosting for more contrast-rich, color-neutral images.
Geared aperture and focus rings are compatible with standard follow focuses for greater control over adjustment.
De-clicked aperture ring facilitates smooth, quiet exposure adjustments during recording.

      If you're on a budget (is anybody not on a budget?) and are looking for a prime cine lens for your DSLR; this Rokinon Cine is well worth the price. It's sharp, and the fully manual [de-clicked] aperture ring is one of those little things that you don't realize you need until you try it. The optical quality and build probably doesn't compare to Zeiss' CP2s or Canon's CN-Es, but it's still affordable and decent glass, and more than enough to allow you to go out there and shoot. I've shot a few hours worth a footage with it and so far I'm very pleased. I have to admit that the lens had me smile on a few occasions. Wrapping a good day's work knowing that I shot some good footage with a cine lens that I didn't have to sell my car for is a good feeling.As a rookie independent filmmaker, I'd rather spend part of my gear & production budget on a lens like this and still have enough to buy other components (and other lenses) than spend nearly 10 times as much on one good lens. I'm fully aware that a good Zeiss on a better camera will yield better results, but for now that's not what I need. If I'm able to make a living off of filmmaking; then I'll eventually invest in good cine glass. Until then; this Rokinon is allowing me to experiment with my camera and my rig, and I'm getting good stock out of it. At roughly $ , it's a low-risk, high-reward investment, and I recommend it fully.

      Very sharp lens and decent construction, in spite of plastic materials. Some CA when wide open. Breathing is noticeable, but to be expected from a still lens -- not sure it's much different than Zeiss ZE/ZF 35mm. Does not send data to 5DMKII.

          Comments about Rokinon 35mm T1.5 Cine AS UMC Lens for Canon EF Mount:

          I purchased the three Rokinon lenses (24mm, 35mm, and 85) together for less then half the price of the Zeiss and Canon primes for my Canon C100. The reason I bring up the comparison to the expensive Zeiss and Canon primes is because well everyone on the Internet is throwing these three lenses in reviews together. I have never seen anyone compare a Nissan Maxima or even an Audi with a Ferrari or Lamborghini, which is what I think of when people compare these three types of lenses. However, these lenses are fantastic and are worth comparing since the benefits in these lenses are the price, quality of image and build. In comparison with the more expensive primes are slight noticeable breathing when focusing. When light goes across the lens there is a noticeable purplish hue to the image, not always, but it is there. The bokeh is great but not perfectly round as you start going up in aperture. The manual functionality does not allow you to change aperture from the camera, but that's the case most of the time outside of using certain lenses. Finally there is some grain, which is not a big deal since most people are adding grain back in during post nowadays. The lenses themselves are surprisingly built very sturdy and the manual t stop ring and focus ring are very smooth. I am very happy and impressed with the video and image quality from my C100, 5D mark III and 7D. I have also seen exceptional quality on Blackmagic Cinema cameras and the Red Scarlet. For the price these lenses are a no brainer, I recommend anytime!

            I've used this lens for shooting both sports and product instruction videos. In each application, the lens performed famously. Produces beautiful color, and works very well in low light due to it T1.5. The focus ring and de-clicked aperture ring are super smooth, adding to its heavy and solid build. You can't do better for the money! Used on a Canon 60d.

                      You might think this lens as just a good budget lens because you might have read excellent reviews online about these Rokinon Cine Lenses. But I can say these lenses are more than just that. I have previously own Canon L and Zeiss T* lenses and having tested them all I can clearly say these lenses really stand up very well against these two competitors I have mentioned. Of course build quality is not as good as those ones, but for a fraction of the price you are obtaining an excellent picture quality. Since these cine lenses do not have electronics at all, what you are paying for is the glass. They're still missing the 50mm cine lens, they shall release it soon. From my experience, these Rokinon Cine lenses are superb.

                        I use this for my camera to shoot movies and take phoots and it is amazing. I really like how the apperature changes on the lens and that it is a T-stop instead of a F-stop, since it's more accurate. It is bigger than the 85mm but it is worth it. These lenses are a bit pricy but they are so god it's definetly worth it. I bought the Rokinon Cine Lens kit and the only thing I'm missing is the 14mm and I will definetly buy that later on.

                        Already amazed how well this lens holds up against other Cine lenses. On my Canon EOS M camera it is more like a Normal lens because of the cropped sensor. However, when the images are color corrected, they look Fantastic! Definitely worth the buy!

                        This is a quality Canon lens, it takes excellently photos, great shallow depth of field, build quality, aperture adjustment right on lens, and focus ring is smooth. After about a month of use, must say I would recommend this lens.

                            I use this lens exclusively for shooting video with my DSLR's and I'm really impressed by it. I've used the Canon L 35mm in the past and absolutely loved it, and this lens comes very close to it as far as image quality. I also love the manual focus and iris rings.
