Rokinon 135mm f/2.0 Overview

The 135mm f/2.0 ED UMC Lens for Canon EF Mount from Rokinon is a manual focus telephoto prime lens useful for portraiture and all medium telephoto applications. Its fast f/2.0 maximum aperture is effective in low light and enables shallow depth of field control. With a rounded 9-blade diaphragm, shallow depth of field imaging will be rendered with pleasing out-of-focus highlights. Compatible with both full frame and APS-C format DSLRs, this lens provides a 35mm focal length equivalence of 202.5mm when used on APS-C cameras. Its minimum focus distance is 2.6'.

The optical design includes one extra-low dispersion lens element to control chromatic aberration, contributing to sharp, color-accurate imaging, and each of its lens elements features Ultra Multi-Coating to improve light transmission and reduce ghosting and flare. An internal focus system prevents the front end from rotating which allows more effective use of variable filters.

A durable metal barrel with a wide focus ring and manual aperture control ring offer tactile control over focus and exposure. An included, removable lens hood deters stray light from entering the lens, while protecting it from accidental impact and precipitation.

Just what I was looking for...Just what I was promised!!!

I bought this for Astrophotography. It is touted as an exceptional lens for wide and flat field pics of deep sky targets. I've had to wait for some good nights, but it has proved itself under less than favourable Bortle 8/9 skies. My first images using this great relatively inexpensive lens on a stock Nikon D5500. Get one!

Great lens!

This is an extraordinary lens if you want to get into astrophotography with your current DSLR. I use a star adventurer pro and can take photos of up to a minute and a half. Very good for low light wildlife photography as well, as long as your subject is still

Not an Canon EF lens but it will mount to an EOS camera. Can only be used in a total manual mode. Love the 135mm & F/2.0 capability, I use it for Astrophotography so far.

Great reviews for this lens, but it didn't work for me. My X-H2S does not recognize it and the lens doesn't lock in place, there is a 0.5 mm play when you turn it. Oh, well...sending it back and ordering a (more expensive) Fuji lens instead.

question

Can I use this lens on a super 35mm digital camcorder like the Sony FS700?
Asked by: Landmark P.
As the Sony NEX-FS700R Super 35 Camcorder uses the Sony E-mount, not the Canon EF lens mount, the above lens would not work for your needs. Instead, you would need to purchase the Rokinon 135mm f/2.0 ED UMC Lens for Sony E MountB&H # RO1352SE, for use on the Sony NEX-FS700R Super 35 Camcorder. Do note this is a fully manual lens, so you will need to set the focal length and aperture on the lens manually.

I just ordered this lens and considering it's weight, I wonder what a good tripod collar would be for this lens since I'm using it with a Canon 5DS on a camera stand?

Is this lens compatible with the Canon EOS Rebel T3i?
Asked by: Michael
Yes this lens is compatible with the Rebel T3i. Keep in mind that there's a crop factor so the field of view you'll have is a 202mm not 135mm.

Hello there! Does anybody know what size tripod ...

Hello there! Does anybody know what size tripod mount ring I could use for this lens? It's very heavy, and though I can get OK shots when it's on my Canon EOS, the balance on the tripod would be MUCH better if we could use a tripod mount ring. Looks like there are no native rings for Samyang/Rokinon, and the couple of generic rings I've tried are the wrong size. Cheers, Mark.
Asked by: Mark
No tripod collar ring is specifically made for your 135mm Rokinon lens. I would suggest an adjustable collar ring that could work if you find a good place on the lens to mount it. https://bhpho.to/2E5r4IX
