          Paired this with the Blackmagic Studio Cameras & it worked out great. Just the focal length we were looking for & decent image so far.

            Comments about Rokinon 16mm T2.2 Cine Lens for Micro Four Thirds:

            I bought this lens because want to true Cine Lens that would work with my GH4 DSLR rig. Most of my Panasonic lenses are great but do not fit well with my follow-focus and matte box; they are too short. This fits perfectly and works perfect. The lens has a similar angle as my 20 & 25mm lenses. The clickless aperture was more important then expected when I shot a transition scene from exterior to interior. I recommend this lens for anyone wanting a good quality affordable MFT or APS-C sensor camera. A step up would be the 24mm T1.5 with a speedbooster but that is about double the cost. The only negative I can find is the near focus is beyond capability of lens.

            Comments about Rokinon 16mm T2.2 Cine Lens for Micro Four Thirds:

            For any videographer that is looking into dabbling into 2k and above... The Rokinon Cine Lens set is a must have. Stop researching and just buy the series. I use Black Magic Cinema cameras and the Rokinon 16mm MFT marries perfectly with my Pocket Cinema Camera, though it does make it a little top heavy, but honestly, it wont effect usability.

            Ive been using the 16mm (as well as the rest of the Rokinon Cine Series Lenses) for music videos and event photography lately, and they have amazing quality, even in run and gun situations with varying light situations.

            Low light is pretty good at t2.2 and will get the job done, however, I suggest using the Sigma 18-35mm f/1.8 for low light situations. The Sigma compliments the Rokinon series well in my experience anyways, so having it in your arsenal beside the Rokinon Cine Series is a good investment.

            I love using this lens when shooting in RAW CinemaDNG format. Attached is a self portrait, using the Rokinon 16mm at T2.2 with the Black Magic Pocket Camera in RAW.

            Affordable.
            Quality.
            User Friendly.
            Nice Design.
            Works well for photography also.
            Compliments on the Lens when I am out and about.

            What more could you ask for?
            A must have lens for any 2.5k and above Cinematographer looking for a Lens that can handle high quality Portrait shots that produce an excellent Cinematic feel to it.

            My Favorite lens so far. I'm taking it anywhere with my BMPCC. I don't have press the focus button twice as i do with the Sigma lens. Very easy to use.
