Rokinon 14mm f/2.8 Overview

  • 1Description

The 14mm f/2.8 ED AS IF UMC Lens for Sony E-Mount from Rokinon is a manual focus, manual aperture, ultra-wide angle prime lens compatible with full-frame & APS-C format mirrorless digital cameras. With APS-C sensors it provides a 93.9° angle of view which translates into a 35mm format focal length equivalency of 21mm. A maximum aperture of f/2.8 is effective in low light shooting and provides shallow depth of field. With extra-low dispersion, aspherical and hybrid aspherical lens elements, chromatic aberrations are minimized and sharp, color-accurate images are the result. UMC lens coating facilitates even light transmission and reduces ghosting and flare. The minimum focus distance for this lens is 11".

Ultra wide-angle focal length equivalent to 21mm in the 35mm format when used on APS-C cameras
Maximum aperture of f/2.8 for effective low light shooting and shallow depth of field focus
Aspherical, Hybrid Aspherical and Extra-low Dispersion lens elements reduce aberrations.
UMC lens coating allows even light transmission and minimizes ghosting and flare.
Built-in petal style lens hood blocks unwanted stray light and protects the lens.

    Rokinon 14mm f/2.8 Reviews

    14mm f/2.8 ED AS IF UMC Lens for Sony E-Mount is rated 4.2 out of 5 by 70.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Deal I was having a hard time finding a lens I could use for my A7s that was an e-mount. I has having so many problems with my adaptors for my A7s so I decided to look at sony lenses, but they are expensive. Rokinon was the perfect solution.This lens quality is good and the images turn out great as well. If you are not afraid of manual focus than this the lens for you. The 14mm is a nice size and isn't as dramatic as the 8mm. Since it is a manual lens I can't magnify the image to double check my focus, so I use my peaking filter. The 2.8 is awesome and it helps out a lot at night, which is when I usually shoot. For $$just buy it and add it your arsenal, you'll more than happy with it.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Ultrawide for Sony A7/R Full Frame Excellent value for the money. Yes, it does work on the full frame Sony A7 or A7R! On these cameras, it is a true 14mm ultrawide vs. 21mm equivalent you might get on APS-C like NEX. The other Rokinon/Samyang wide angles (10mm, 12mm and 16mm) are designed for APS-C and will seriously vignette on full frame cameras. Also, this lens is a retrofocus design, so there are none of the problems that might happen with some of the other ultrawide manual lenses where the rear element is much closer to the sensor (e.g., smearing and color shift in the corners). The tradeoff is that this is a large and somewhat heavy lens. I have found this lens relatively sharp across the frame. It maintains its rectilinear rendering well for such a wide angle. This is a fully manual lens with no electronic connection to the camera.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great wide angle for the E-mount Fantastic lens!! Especially considering the price. Constructions feels solid, focus ring is precise and butter smooth. It can be little soft at 2.8 but once closed down a few stops it is about as sharp as any other wide angle I've ever used. What ever distortion and vignetting there is can be easily corrected by downloading a LR lens profile.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good For Milky Way Photos I got this lens to take Milky Way, star and night photos. As many have mentioned it takes some time to figure out where infinity is on this lens. For me, infinity is equal to the 3mm indicator on the focus ring. I went out for a few hours with my Sony A7Rii and used focus magnification to try and nail infinity. With the camera on my tripod I took a series of shots from 2mm to the infinity mark, carefully writing notes as to which photo had which setting. Back home I carefully reviewed the photos and 3mm was my best setting for infinity.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Tricky by very rewarding lens! This lens is all about expectations and about how exactly you plan to use it, specially because of the tricky manual focus. Night sky/Milky way at f/2.8: Perfect, wide angle and fast. You will be on tripod so take your time to adjust manual focus. Use magnification. If you want foreground illuminated and in focus, do a composite. Landscape on tripod at F/8+: Great for same reasons above. Soft focus and shallow DOF wont be a problem at f8 and above. Landscape handheld: At 2.8 sharpness is too soft. If you don't have enough light for a higher aperture value, simply don't try it. I can see this is where a lot of people is complaining. Architecture: Same as with Landscape with huge distortion (perhaps you like it). It won't work well for low light and handheld. Bottomline: I see this as a tripod only lens. If your camera does not any focus aid, like peaking or magnification, then it will be very tough.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works great for real estate. I am no expert but this lens works great for photographing the interiors of apartments prior to leasing. I have it attached to a Sony a7 so it is taking advantage of the full 14mm. It is wide but also shows great room height so rooms with cathedral ceilings come out great. You can program the a7 to zoom in which allows fine tuning the manual focus. I would recommend a tripod for best possible focus.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great ultra wide for night sky photography! I primarily use it for shooting northern lights and the Milky Way and it is really sharp for the price and it's focal lenght. I use it on a Sony a7 and I didn't found any problems most people seems to talk about, at least on my copy. The infinity mark is spot-on and there's no signs of decentering. I really like it!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from The best lens for astrophotography This lens is hands-down the best lens for astrophotography in an ultra wide angle. The sharpness is awe inspiring, the contrast is excellent, and colors come through nicely too. The build quality is superb and it feels great in the hands. At half the price of the other lenses in this focal length, it is truly a bargain.

    need a good lens recommendations for creating 3d pano tours for Sony A7rIII?
    Asked by: Mark
    At 14mm this is about as wide as you will get for a Full Frame camera like the Sony A7RIII. This should work very well for your needs.

    Will this work on the Sony A7II? How does it perform compared to the Rokinon 12mm?

    question

    I'm curious why under the product highlights it states - 21mm (35mm Equivalent on APS-C) when the lens is actually 14mm? If I pop this on my Sony A7s will the focal length be 14mm, which is in fact super wide, or will it be 21mm which is just semi-wide for what I'm looking for? If it's a 14mm lens at full-frame, wouldn't it be a 21mm for the APS-C, not 35mm?
    Asked by: Anonymous
    If it is on a Sony A7s, it is effectively a 14mm.On a 1.5 crop sensor camera (NEX), it will be equivalent to 21mm on a full format sensor (35mm).

    question

    Is the lens suitable for use with the full frame e-mount?

    question

    Is this lens a hard stop infinity? I understand that using a canon mount w/ an adapter prohibits the hard stop. So with it being a Sony mount have any found this lens to have a hard stop infinity focus? Thanks!
    Asked by: David V.
    This lens is manual focus, hard stop, not focus by wire. My copy, out of the box, was perfect @infinity, on a7RI & II. However as with most lenses with a hard stop @infinity temperature variations can cause a slight deviation from the infinity ref mark. BTW, IMHO a bargain, very sharp with no visible vignetting. Good luck & do keep a clear eye.
