Rokinon 35mm f/1.4 Overview

  • 1Description

The Sony E mount Rokinon 35mm f/1.4 AS UMC Lens is a prime standard wide-angle lens designed for both full-frame and APS-C sized sensors; when used with an APS-C sensor the 35mm-equivalent focal length is 52.5mm. It is well-suited to working in a variety of situations ranging from landscape to portraiture. Its fast f/1.4 maximum aperture is further beneficial to working in low-light conditions and for greater control over selective focus and shallow depth of field effects.

Two high refractive index elements and one aspherical element have been incorporated into the optical design to minimize chromatic aberrations in order to produce sharper images. A UMC coating has also been applied to lens elements to reduce surface reflections and prevent lens flare and ghosting for improved light transmission and more contrast-rich imagery.

When used with APS-C-sized sensors, this 52.5mm equivalent standard prime lens provides a similar field of view to normal vision, making it well-suited to use in everyday situations.
Fast f/1.4 maximum aperture benefits working in low-light conditions and provides greater control over focus placement for shallow depth of field applications.
Two high refractive index elements and one aspherical element reduce chromatic aberrations in order to produce greater sharpness and clarity.
UMC coating improves light transmission and suppresses lens flare and ghosting for more contrast-rich, color-neutral images.
Eight rounded aperture blades help to produce an aesthetic out-of-focus quality to benefit selective focus and shallow depth of field imagery.

    Rokinon 35mm f/1.4 Reviews

    35mm f/1.4 AS UMC Lens for Sony E Mount is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 4.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great lens for low light I used this lens for photographing the Milky Way on a Sony a6000. Stopped down to f/2.0 this lens has minute coma and excellent quality. The output is very clear and I have been able to get my most detailed photos of the stars with this lens. This lens is compatible with both APS-C and full size sensors on the Sony E-Mount system which is great for future upgrades. For a small mirrorless camera this lens can be quite large and a little heavy. A strong tripod with a good mounting system is required to keep the camera from tipping forward. The medium format (for APS-C sensors) makes this lens great for night panoramas and photo stitching. Overall this is a great lens that I will be using for a long time.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Manualeez I have loved using the 35 on my A7r. It's incredibly sharp in the center and with focus peaking from the sony camera I can hit focus just about every time. The only time have difficulty is when there is low light or not a lot of contrast in the frame. But then I just snap a few in a row. That's the beauty of digital. The bonus here is hat I don't have to use the alpha adapter like I have on my 24 1.4. So I carry less weight in my bag. It balances nicely with the A7r. The only complaint I have is the cheap lens hood given with this lens and also the Alpha mount 24mm. They pop off rather easily and I would have preferred something a bit sturdier than the flimsy plastic hoods they include now. Anyhow it's a minor complaint and I have enjoyed shooting with it thoroughly.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from I like this lens, its just heavy for run I bought this lens for shallow and tight wedding video shots but also for a clean 1 to 1 35mm look on my a7s. 1.4 is great, the glass good, the colors aren't vibrant and the weight and size are on the large side.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Rokinon Beast! I paired this with my Sony a7sii, wow what a combo! Awesome lens, crisp, sharp, low light beast! It is bigger than I expected, sticks out quite a bit from the camera. Clicked aperture is great! Has a long focus throw, but all round killer lens!

    Will features like focus peeking work with this lens?
    Asked by: Anonymous
    Yes, focus peaking would work with this lens and selected Sony E mount cameras with that function, like the A6000 for example.

    Manual focus approach: I have been taking pictures since the early 70's using a View Camera, so I am not shy about manual focus. However I learned to go to the maximum aperture, focus, then stop down for the shot. This multi-step approach is too slow for street shooting with a small camera. Does focus peaking eliminate the need for max-aperture focusing - can I still achieve good and properly placed focus while focusing at f/8 ?
    Asked by: Ronald
    Yes, focus peeking allows you real-time feedback on the manual focusing distance without having to change the aperture. You will see what is currently in focus and what is not.

    Does this lens require an adapter to fit a Sony a6000 with an APS-C sensor?
    Asked by: Evan H.
    It fits perfectly on the a6000 and it will become 42mm.

    Is this a good lens for Video?
    Asked by: Tamara S.
    Well it depends on how you use it. It's an amazing lens. I love taking picture with it. The only downside is that it is a manual focus so using this lens for video may be a little hard. Unless you're okay with that. it is great for video as well.

    So this is 35mm for a full frame sensor and it would be equivalent to 52mm on an APS-C sensor?
    Asked by: Anonymous
    Yeah! Maybe, 56mm. But its beautiful!
