Rokinon Cine DS Overview

  • 1Description

The 12mm T3.1 ED AS IF NCS UMC Cine DS Fisheye Lens for Sony E-Mount from Rokinon is a lens optimized for digital cinematography and as such provides a de-clicked manual aperture for smooth and silent adjustment and unified focus and aperture gears for use with follow focus accessories. Also, focus, aperture, and depth of field markings are on the side of the lens to aid focus pullers who typically operate on the side of the camera. Aperture is measured in absolute T-stops to provide accurate and consistent exposure across lenses and color rendition is matched with other Rokinon cine lenses for consistency.

This fisheye lens provides a 180º diagonal angle of view on full-frame cameras for an ultra-wide angle, distorted perspective that is useful for architectural interiors, landscapes and creative experimentation in any application. The T3.1 maximum aperture is effective in low light situations and enables some measure of shallow depth of field control. 

The lens' optical design consists of 12 lens elements arranged in 8 groups including three elements made of low dispersion ED glass and two aspherical lens elements to minimize coma and chromatic aberrations. Highly effective nano crystal anti-reflection (NCS) coating applied together with UMC coatings improve light transmission and reduce ghosting. Its internal focus system does not extend the front elements during focus and minimizes the effects of lens breathing.

This Sony E-Mount manual focus lens optimized for digital cinema provides a de-clicked manual aperture for smooth and silent adjustment and unified focus and aperture gears for use with a traditional follow focus. Also, focus, aperture, and depth of field markings are on the side of the lens to aid focus pullers who typically operate on the side of the camera. Aperture is measured in absolute T-stops to provide accurate and consistent exposure across lenses and color rendition is matched with other Rokinon cine lenses for consistency.
An ultra wide-angle fisheye lens with a 12mm focal length on full-frame cameras and an 18mm equivalency when used on APS-C and Super 35mm format cameras. Its distorted perspective is useful for interiors, landscapes, group shots and many creative wide-angle applications.
Extra low dispersion and aspherical lens elements reduce aberrations for sharp, color-accurate imaging.
Nano crystal coating and ultra multi-coating on the lens elements improves light transmission and reduces ghosting and flare.
Sturdy metal barrel with removable petal-shaped lens hood.

    Rokinon Cine DS Reviews

    12mm T3.1 ED AS IF NCS UMC Cine DS Fisheye Lens for Sony E-Mount is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 2.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Compelled to write a glowing review Haven't seen too many reviews of this lens and the ones out there don't really do it justice IMO. Traded some old Nikon glass at Samy's Camera in LA for this on a whim and wow am I impressed. Using it on both an a6300 and a7rII and both the sharpness and color rendition far exceed even my wildest expectations. A few nits: sometimes full infinity focus isn't quite the lock you want when shooting landscape, best to pay attention to the focus peaking if your camera or monitor have it. Also annoying that the geared focus ring is so close to the actual glass. When shooting in full frame mode with a Zacuto follow-focus, it's impossible to keep it out of the frame entirely. Almost impossible on crop mode as well on the A7RII. However, as tempted as I was to drop a star because of the above, the sharpness and Zeiss-like color rendition keep me from doing so. Major major value with this lens, highly recommended!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great lens for the price, even at maximum aperture! Unlike all Rokinons that I've tried that get poor optical performance at maximum aperture this is it's a great lens, with great construction and you get sharpen imagens even at f/3.1
