The Rokinon 85mm T1.5 Cine Lens for Nikon F produces a slightly telephoto angle-of-view on full-frame sensors. It features a very fast maximum aperture of T1.5 and an 8 blade iris, for shallow depth of field with attractive bokeh. The focus and aperture control rings are outfitted with industry standard gearing, which provides an interface for working with a traditional follow focus. The aperture control ring has also been "declicked", which facilitates smooth iris pulls.

The 85mm has a minimum focus distance of 3.6'. Internal focusing minimizes the effects of lens breathing, which insures a more consistent angle-of-view when adjusting focus. The lens is composed of 9 elements in 7 groups, including one aspherical element to reduce spherical aberrations. In addition, a multi-coated elements help improve light transmission.

        Comments about Rokinon 85mm T1.5 Cine Lens for Nikon F:

        I'm a DP, videographer, filmmaker, etc. I use this lens for films, short films, commercials, interviews, weddings, etc.

        This lens has great performance. It is very sharp, and renders colors wonderfully.

        The only thing I'm not a big fan of is that the measurements (focus distance & aperture ring) aren't spot on accurate, but for the quality and price of the lens, it's a wonderful choice.

            Works great on my Nikon D600. This is a sharp lens for the price. The only problem is that the lens cap will not stay in place. You have to purchase a Nikon rear cap.

              Comments about Rokinon 85mm T1.5 Cine Lens for Nikon F:

              An exceptionally fair deal for what you're getting, this lens. Build quality if very nice, everything opperates smoothly, it is just as they describe and the image quality is supurb thus far. I haven't done a huge amount with this lens yet, but it is very promising. The only minor complaint I have is with their lens cap and sun hood. Terrible. Other than that, a great purchase. Well worth the money.

                    No, it's not a high end prime like a CP2, but it's very sharp, very fast, and even if it doesn't hold up for years and years, just buy another one! I like the follow focus gearing and declicked iris ring. Only minor drawback: be careful the first few times you mount a front protective filter. The filter threads on the Rokinon are a little tight and gritty, and it's easy to get the filter stuck.

                      The Rokinon 85mm Cine T1.5 lens is simply a great lens. I recently tested the Rokinon, the Nikor 85mm f1.5 & the Zeiss ZF.2 85mm f1.4 lenses & tho my test was very simple in nature, I have to say that the Rokinon held it's own. The image & bokeh quality was very impressive when up against the similar focal lengths and apertures of the Zeiss & Nikon lenses and when you consider the price, it becomes clear that a tight strapped DSLR video budget would be well served with the Rokinon lens.
