Rokinon 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 Sony E-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 full-frame sensor cameras. 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 Cine DS reviews

    85mm T1.5 Cine DS Lens for Sony E-Mount is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 13.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works well with A7s I've only had it on a couple of outings so far but I've been impressed the performance. The image is sharp and works well for video. On the Sony A7s - it's a good size and weight - not too large or heavy to overwhelm the camera if you're going handheld. Not that I'd recommend going handheld in that configuration - the least little jitter does show up. Using a monopod or a light tripod gets much better results. It also allows a one man band to focus and adjust the de-clicked aperture simultaneously. So, although all manual - it's a pleasure to use and it yields good results.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Quality Lens - Not great focal length for Cinema This is a 5 star lens in terms of image quality, and build. I own all of the Cine DS line of lenses for my a7s, and I got the 85 to add to my lineup. Unfortunately, I didn't pay attention to the specs and the 3.5 feet focus distance. Unfortunately I was excited to use the 85 to get even better details and close up detail than the 50mm I use, but since I can't focus that close, it's not really possible. I'm returning the lens, and keeping my others, but it's still a great lens.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice fast cine lens at a bargain price I am currently using this lens with a NEX-5N; on this APS-C camera the lens has an equivalent 35mm focal length of 127.5mm. It can also be used on a full frame E-mount camera; mounting this lens on the A7 series for video is a popular use of it, and one I hope to test in the future. I use it both for video and for portraits. The lens feels solid. Focusing and aperture control are both smooth. The aperture control is clickless for video use, but the lens also works well for still photography. This is a completely manual lens with no electronic connections. You must set the aperture on the lens; the camera is unable to control it, so automatic modes that require aperture control will not work. You can still use automatic shutter speed, and auto ISO on some cameras. You also lose the automatic correction for lens distortion that the Sony cameras have for their own lenses, but that is not a major problem as the distortion levels of this lens are low. Wide open the lens produces lovely round bokeh, as the iris is completely retracted. Stopped down the shape of the 8 blade iris can be seen; still decent, but not as nice as more expensive cine lenses that use more blades. Sharpness is good wide open and improves somewhat stopped down to T4. Depth of field is very limited at T1.5 as you would expect, so careful focusing is essential. No, this lens isn't going to match the image quality of a Zeiss cine lens. But it also doesn't cost thousands of dollars. It delivers the good qualities of a fast 85mm lens - shallow depth of field, good bokeh, and low light capability - at a price that makes it possible for many more people to own.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Lens Has a sturdy feel. Rings turn smoothly and have just the right amount of resistance. Used it with my A7ii and it looked beautiful. Great lens.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Solid Performer at a great price I have not done a real test on this lens, but first images show a very sharp lens at f2, and sharper than I expected wide open. Mechanically, The actions feel smooth and solid. Why not 5 stars? There is an EVER so slight sloppiness in the E mount, as it mates to the camera (Sony Fs7). Not enough to affect anything, but 5 stars is for "perfect"
