The Sony E 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 52.5mm. 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.

      Okay, so the lenses lack the color matching of more expensive equipment and have some breathing effect, they're a bargan. Check out all the side by side comparisons on Vimeo. Not a lot of difference in on-screen result (small screen) given the price (1/10th that of top line lenses) If you're budget sensitive at all, this lens makes sense. Bought the 24 and 35. Would like to see a 50mm in the line up (Hear that Rokinon?). Will add the 85mm shortly. Using Sony E mount - no issues so far with FS-100 and some preliminary shooting. Definitely buy a hard case for these lenses. I'll bet B&H will sell you one...

      The Sony Em out version comes with a permanently attached extension tube, not shown in the pictures, making it almost unwieldy.
      It breathes considerably, but remember it's a low-end still lens with gears to make it a "cine" lens.
      It flares badly from diffuse of camera sources like a window, even worse than some of my 1960's rangefinder glass.
      However, it is sharp at the edges of frame in full 24x36 glory and a 35mm wide open looks gorgeous.

              I love this lens. It's my first for the A7S and they work really well together. It's heavier than I expected but that's due to its solid build. Easy to use, and a great introduction to prime lenses for me.

              The quality is great. It's a little heavy and large for what it is but I'm not going to complain when the picture comes out great. The biggest problem I had was that I didn't realize the Cine lenses were meant for studio settings. I can't see any of the numbers on the lens because it's meant for a production assistant to use and follow focus. The lens locks in and all the numbers are on the left side of the lens. I probably should have bought the 1.4 non-cine version for my run and gun use but the clickless aperture is nice.

                This lens meet my expectations and beyond! I bought this along with the 24mm and 85mm Rokinon Cinema lenses and I'm very impressed with them. Sharp Images throughout with no vignette what so over. I compared this lens with Canon and other big name brand cinema lens and this keeps up with them real good! I would definitely recommend this product!

                      You get a bit more than what you pay for, but in the end you get what you pay for :)

                      Great lens for the price, a bit soft wide open, definitely some breathing while racking. I've heard it varies between units, some worse, some hardly noticeable. I'm satisfied with what I got and for the price I paid.

                      It'd be nice if the different sizes had the same diameter for mattebox use, but I can live with it.

                            Great for HD video production. Solid built. Good size. Good weight. Long focus throw. No chromatic aberations. Negligible spheric aberations. Good value for money.

                            Okay, so the lenses lack the color matching of more expensive equipment and have some breathing effect, they're a bargan. Check out all the side by side comparisons on Vimeo. Not a lot of difference in on-screen result (small screen) given the price (1/10th that of top line lenses) If you're budget sensitive at all, this lens makes sense. Bought the 24 and 35. Would like to see a 50mm in the line up (Hear that Rokinon?). Will add the 85mm shortly. Using Sony E mount - no issues so far with FS-100 and some preliminary shooting. Definitely buy a hard case for these lenses. I'll bet B&H will sell you one...
