Rokinon has released a manual focus 24mm f/3.5 Tilt-Shift lens for Canon, Nikon and Sony Alpha full-frame DSLR cameras. Tilt-shift lenses provide the capability to control perspective and to correct the convergence of lines within the frame. They also offer depth of field control without the need for wide aperture settings and exacting selective-focus placement. While a tilt-shift lens is useful in numerous photographic applications and can be creatively incorporated into any kind of photography, it is particularly valuable for architecture, product and landscape photographers. The 24mm f/3.5 Tilt-Shift ED AS UMC Lens provides a 24mm wide-angle focal length for full-frame cameras and, when used with APS-C-sized sensors from Canon, is equivalent to a 38.4mm lens, or a 36mm lens when used with Nikon or Sony APS-C-sized sensors.
The tilt-shift function on the Rokinon 24mm f/3.5 allows for smooth tilt adjustment of the focal plane angle by +/-8.5° and enables parallel shift of the optical axis by +/-12mm. To make the tilt-shift function even more seamless, both the lens mount as well as Tilt-Shift section may be rotated along the optical axis. The tilt-shift section can be rotated left by 90° (with 30° click-stop adjustment), while the lens mount may be rotated both in left and right direction by 90°, also with 30° adjustment.
The lens itself is composed of 16 elements in 11 groups including two aspherical elements and two extra-low dispersion (ED) lenses. The aspherical and ED elements minimize chromatic aberrations for accurate colors and overall sharper imagery. The lenses also feature a UMC coating for consistent, even light transmission and limited reflections, which will reduce flare and ghosting to help produce clear, high-contrast images. The aperture range for the lens is f/3.5-22 on all three mounts, and the minimum focus distance is consistent as well, at 7.9”.
