Rokinon 85mm T1.5 Cine DS Overview

  • 1Description

Utilizing a multi-layer coating process for consistent color rendition from lens to lens the Rokinon 85mm T1.5 Cine DS Lens answers the challenge of assembling a set of lenses over time. The lens comes in Nikon F Mount and it features industry standard geared focus and iris rings that share common position with other Rokinon Cine DS lenses. To aid focus pullers who have to work both sides of the lens, the aperture and focus scales are marked on both sides of the lens.

This 85mm lens produces a 28.3° angle-of-view when used with a full-frame sensor camera or a 35mm SLR. Hybrid aspherical lenses render sharply defined images with a minimum of distortion and chromatic aberrations, with a minimum focus distance of 3'6" from the lens. A removable lens hood provides flare protection when shooting without a matte box and the lens's threaded front accepts 72mm filter rings.

Ultra Multi Coated lenses minimize flare and ghosting, and the lenses are color matched to a standard eliminating the need to acquire an entire set of lenses at the same time.
Industry-standard gearing for focus and aperture rings. Each lens in the Rokinon DS series share common focus and iris gear ring positions, which speeds up lens changes as accessories such as follow focus units or iris motors don't have to be re-positioned.
"Declicked" aperture ring for smooth iris pulls.
A removable lens hood provides flare protection without a matte box.
The lens opens up to T1.5, providing the capability for low light shooting or creating extremely shallow depth of field.

    Rokinon 85mm T1.5 Cine DS Reviews

    85mm T1.5 Cine DS Lens for Nikon F Mount is rated 4.9 out of 5 by 7.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Possibly the best value in 85mm lenses Rokinon/Samyang really make excellent lenses for the money. In many cases I think they hit the best price-to-performance mark of any lenses out there. I needed a new 85mm to replace my aging Nikkor Ai-S 85mm and this Rokinon outperforms all of Nikkor's offerings until you get to the over $1,000 price point. Super sharp all the way out to the edges, nearly zero barrel distortion or chromatic aberration, and surprisingly good sharpness and saturation when wide open - although as with any lens there still is some softening here. For portraits or video work, I can't help but think this lens right here, at this super affordable price, might just be the best lens value there is for professional work.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Gorgeous Lens for a Great Price This a great lens for a fantastic price. It is an incredibly fast lens (T/1.5) with butter-smooth geared rings for focus and aperture control with clear markings on the barrel. The lens is quite sharp, with gorgeous bokeh, especially at the widest apertures. Sharpness drops of a bit towards the edges, but overall I doubt you could beat the quality of this lens for the price. No auto-features, but this is a cine lens, not a photography lens.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Better than expected. I bought this as a video lens but have been using as a portrait lens. Very sharp but made of plastic.

    is it worth getting this version of the m43 Rokinon 85mm t1.5 over the cheaper one ( Rokinon 85mm T1.5 Cine AS IF UMC Lens )? Is there a noticeable improvement in image quality? (I would need this for both video and stills head & shoulders portraits)..thanks for any feedback
    Asked by: Justin
    Side by side, I would think that the image quality would be about the same. The more expensive DS or Dual Side lens line has features that come into play when you have a set of them. You get the Dual Side focus markings, unified aperture and focus gear ring distance, (simplifying lens changes) and color matching. If you do not intend to get a DS set and plan more casual use, then save some money and get the less expensive one. If you plan more intensive video use then spend the money, get a set of DS lenses and enjoy the benefits.

    Is there focus confirm with the Nikon F mount?

    Is there focus confirm with the Nikon F mount?
    Asked by: ken
    There is not, but that is because this is a Cinema Style Lens which is fully manual for focus. It does not have any auto focus capability.
