Rokinon 8mm f/2.8 Fisheye II Overview

The black, Sony E-mount Rokinon 8mm f/2.8 UMC Fisheye II is a prime fisheye lens specifically designed for APS-C sized image sensors. Providing a 35mm-equivalent focal length of 12mm and full 180° angle of view, this lens is well-suited for creative applications as well as interior and architectural subjects. Its fast f/2.8 maximum aperture is further beneficial to working in low-light conditions.

Three extra-low dispersion elements and two aspherical elements have been incorporated into the optical design to minimize chromatic aberrations and distortion in order to produce sharper images. Additionally, the lens' design features a built-in lens hood and a UMC coating has been applied to the lens elements to reduce surface reflections and prevent lens flare and ghosting for improved light transmission and more contrast-rich imagery.

Does this produce a full circular image on Sony FF cameras or does the circle crop at top and bottom?
Asked by: Erika
This lens only covers a Super 35mm or APS-C sized sensor. It will not cover the sensor on a Full Frame Sony camera, the camera will need to be set to a Cropped Mode.

question

Will this lens vignette on a camera with Super 35mm Sensor? I want to use it with my Sony FS5.
Asked by: Wittwer M.
As this lens is designed for APS-C size sensors, it would not vignette on a super 35mm camera. Super 35 and APS-C are practically the same size.
