The Rokinon 16mm T2.2 Cine Lens for Canon EF is a wide-angle lens optimized for digital cinematography. The lens produces an image circle that will cover APS-C sized sensors or smaller. The focus and aperture rings feature industry-standard 0.8 pitch gearing for attaching a follow focus unit. The aperture ring is also de-clicked to allow for smooth iris pulls while shooting. Focus, aperture, and depth of field markings are on the side of the lens to aid focus pullers, who typically operates on the side of the camera.

The 16mm T2.2 lens is constructed out of 13 individual elements in 11 groups, including one aspherical and one hybrid aspherical element. Aspherical elements help minimize unwanted distortion and chromatic aberrations. The lens also has a multi-layer coating to reduce flares and maintain image contrast in bright conditions.

With an angle of view of 79.5°, the lens is well-suited for shooting landscapes, architecture, and for use in tight interior locations. A maximum aperture of T2.2 means that the lens is effective in low-light shooting and can produce a shallow depth of field when the lens is closer to the subject. The lens has a minimum focus distance of 7.87". A bayonet-mount lens hood and lens pouch come included with the lens.

Obviously this isn't a canon or a zeiss but for the price you can't beat it.

    Comments about Rokinon 16mm T2.2 Cine Lens for Canon EF:

    I'm a huge fan of the rokinon cine lens series. The 16mm does not disappoint. Far less wide angle distortion than its 14mm brother. The lens is sharp as a tack and performs well in low light with the T2.2 aperture. Pairs amazingly well with my gh4 and metabones speedbooster.

          Comments about Rokinon 16mm T2.2 Cine Lens for Canon EF:

          Bought this for the BMCC cause of the sensor crop. Which makes a 16mm about a 30 something mm (??) Anyway...

          Your serious options in an EF mount cine prime is this, a Canon or Zeiss.
          in a shootout the canon & zeiss both outperform the Rokinon.
          HOWEVER outside the context of a quasi scientific optical experiment I say that these are totally fine for storytelling and for straight up beauty shots.

          I personally wouldn't see the difference (after grading etc.) in the right hands between this lens and the Zeiss equivalent. When you factor the almost as good optics and then you factor in the insanely low price (comparatively) you've got to be a weirdo or a lens snob to not agree that this is an unbelievable good value.

          .

          not bad, not great

          By clint

          from brooklyn

          Comments about Rokinon 16mm T2.2 Cine Lens for Canon EF:

          I love thus brand I have their other lenses all for Canon Mount and use it on my EPIC and my BlackmagicURSA.

          Wide lenses seems to be where their optical quality isn't the best. Most noticed on the 14.

          I like this for the speed and it didn't seem to distort too much.

          The lens is a tad soft, and on wider sensors vignettes a tad but mostly just loses clarity and some exposure on the outsides.

          Comments about Rokinon 16mm T2.2 Cine Lens for Canon EF:

          Very acceptable lens. No issues. I was concerned that this was the cheapest sub-20mm lens I could buy, so had pretty low expectations, but was very satisfied. The features I liked included the side numbering on the barrel, and the smooth aperture. I guess where the rubber hits the road is this: I'm switching camera rigs and plan to buy the same lens with a different mount for the new camera.

          Great Wide Angle Lens for an MFT camera

            Comments about Rokinon 16mm T2.2 Cine Lens for Canon EF:

            I bought this lens to use with my Black Magic Pocket Cinema Camera which has a super 16mm sensor. Of course, this is a canon EF mount lens so if you are shooting on an MFT camera you will need an adapter. I bought the Holymanta EF to MFT adapter with built-in variable neutral density filter to kill two birds with one stone, the obvious being adapting this lens, the other reason was to be able to shoot wide open outside in a range of conditions without needing to stop and mess with a bunch of stuff on the front of the lens.

            This lens is about the equivalent of a 32mm lens on a full-frame camera and it really looked good on my first shoot.

            I'm sure there are better lenses and I'm sure most of them cost way more but life is short and if you need a good cinema lens that works well right now this is a great option.

            If you are into shooting with equipment that is designed to work like much more expensive gear, e.g. the BMPCC and can handle some of the drawbacks like working with smaller media such as sdxc cards, short battery life, poorer on-camera audio, etc. then this lens is just another great way to do that.

            I will definitely be buying more from this Rokinon Cinema Lens line.

              I bought this to adapt and use with my BMPCC and it works great. Sharp lens, T-stops are nice. Very smooth focus and de-clicked aperture. Great for use with a follow focus and only $20 more than the non cine version.

                Great lens with everything you need for indie filmmaking on a budget. The speed and quality at this price point are amazing. I haven't shot much wide open, but it looks great at 5.6/8 outside.
