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.

      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!

      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 have used this lens to produce a number of projects and have been very happy with the results, as I have been with results from the other Rokinon lenses purchased with it as part of a kit from B&H.

        After a few months use, however, it developed an audible rattle . . . as if a small screw had come loose inside and was floating around.

        I contacted Rokinon support as soon as I noticed the rattle requesting repair or replacement under warranty (one year). Customer support got back to me within the day and had me send the lens in for examination. No final determination yet.

        Not going to find a sharper cinema lens for this price. Highly recommend this lens if you can't afford more expensive zeiss. Skip the 14 and 24 rokinons, 35 and 85 are very very good

            I use this primarily for shooting wedding videos, love the low light capabilities, and for the price you cannot go wrong with it. This is usually my go to lens when shooting weddings. Just make sure you have a steady hand and good vision.

                        For the money, it really is good. Contrast is good, sharpness is excellent especially at around T2.8. That is what maters most and what I like most about this lens.

                        The focus ring feels a little plasticky, and it could rotate closer to a full 360 degrees instead of its somewhat limited range of 160-170 degrees, and should be a little smoother. The focusing marks are too spread out to be any use in measuring distance and puling, but the imprecision of the EF mount makes focusing with distance measurements impossible anyway.

                        Overall, it's a great lens considering the price. If I had the money I'd purchase the entire line.

                            I'm new to Cine Lenses, but after reading reviews and checking out various prices, this one seemed to get pretty favorable reviews. I've not had nearly as much time to play with it as I'd like but it seems to have a good clear image, works well in low light (something I wanted) and overall seems to be a good lens for the price!

                                  This lens is incredible for low light situations. I have two one for emount and one for ef mount..this one actually performs better. I dont know why but my other lens seems to go back to 2.0 if i bring it to 1.5 it is weird. I guess b and h has quality products

                                  Extremely good for a variety of lighting conditions and the wider angle lens makes capturing most shots easy

                                  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.
