Rokinon 135mm f/2.0 overview

  • 1Description

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.

    Rokinon 135mm f/2.0 reviews

    135mm f/2.0 ED UMC Lens (Canon EF) is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 4.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from An Honest Fast Lens at Native Aperture Rokinon 135mm f2.0: This is a heavy lens, good glass is not light, and this lens is Good. This is the only lens I have which is sharp edge to edge when full open to its native aperture. Used for star-scapes, even at f2.0 the points are even across the field: Amazingly so. Most 'fast' lenses need to be stopped down at least two to three to clean their distortions from the edges. From my experience, for example: The Canon 50mm f1.8 really needs to be stopped down to at least f2.8, or more, to be sharp across the field. Even the other Rokinon primes I have need at least one or two stops to be clear. This 135mm f2.0 is exceptional! The only criticism is obvious; this is not a light, carry around, all-purpose, auto-everything, convenience lens. This telephoto is a heavy, special purpose, manual-everything, Photographic Tool. As any tool it is suited for its purposes, and a tripod is almost essential for the weak at arms. My main use has been for astrophotography. Because of the focal length there is not much untracked exposure time allowed, 2.5 to 3 seconds for really sharp stars at my local latitude, so it really needs the fullest aperture available. This Rokinon f2.0 delivers! My cameras are Canon 60D and a 70D, crop sensors to take advantage of the telephotos. The Rokinon 135mm field of view frames the Belt & Sword of Orion - in the centre of the Milky Way it captures from M7 (Ptolemy's Cluster) to M8 (Lagoon Nebula) or 'Baade's Window'. While in the Southern Hemisphere, it just frames the Cross - or the central 'Eta Carina' nebula. The light transmission of the lens is exceptional compared to my zoom lenses which cover the same focal length. Having a manual prime is the best lens for gathering the faintest stars, even through haze and cloud. The last cloudy night I set the Rokinon 135mm up on a tripod, standing on our porch overlooking the distant city/town lights, to test its various settings. The horizon was dark against the sky for good contrast. To my amazement - after using the f2.0 setting to focus, before stopping it down as usual I unexpectedly took a shot; immediately, on review the city lights were sharp from edge to edge, top to bottom, corner to corner, without any visible distortion. Stopping it down one click to f2.8 and the full depth of the telephoto came up with reasonable sharpness from near to far. Taking it to f5.6, and beyond, things were only marginally better, they didn't need to be, the images were all exceptional. As I use this view to test my new lenses it shows up any comparative weaknesses quickly this Rokinon 135mm f2.0 had none! My other Rokinon Lenses and their general uses: 8mm f3.5 (Extreme wide sky on APS-C, not 180 degree need 4.5mm for full Fisheye) 16mm f2.0 (Undistorted clean wide field) 35mm f1.4 (My Favourite of all, a real light bucket, Photons from Far Away, Gathered Here.) 85mm f1.4 (My Constellation lens, star fields, and Asterisms) 135mm f2.0 (Detailed Star patterns and Clusters) 500mm f6.3 Mirror (Very much distortion, fun only)

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from One of the best lenses I ever had I bought this lens for astrophotography based on work of other astrophotographers with this lens and recommendations I got from them. I do not regret to do so, this lens was worth every dollar I spent on it. Crispy sharp image from corner to corner on full size sensor, virtually no distortion of any kind, excellent color rendition. Sharpness of the field is absolutely the must in astrophotography and this lens do its job over my most demanding expectations! I use also my Zeiss lenses from Hasselblad gear for astrophotography purposes but I have to admit this lens is even better then my a bit older CF line Hasselblad lenses, ED element included in optical train of this lens is doing miracles indeed. Odds - not too many, a slight vignetting in the corners but just stopping it down 1-2 stops can minimize this effect to almost negligent, it is fast lens so 1-2 stops down are not something to be worry about. Other odds - plastic barrel but this is not a kind of cheap plastic so that should not be a problem either. Considering a weight of this lens (it is really heavy piece of glass) maybe use of plastic was the right choice however, I will prefer metal barrel. On other side - vignetting problem can be fixed in Aperture or PS easily. The most important is that this lens is razor sharp even at f/2 with perfectly corrected field. I just stored my Zeiss lenses and Rokinon 135 f/2 became my first choice lens since then. Be aware it is a manual focus lens what doesn't bother me because astrophotography means focusing at infinitum and very long exposure times but if you shoot some rapid scenes you should keep that on mind.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Tack sharp!!! This is an amazing lens especially for the price. You just have to be good at manual focus. I am using the canon version of this lenswith an adapter for my Fuji X-E1. Love this lens! Buy it

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from The Roki Raining Lokis! I would buy again for a friend! This Roki rains down Loki strikes! I'm not disputing that the glass can get tack sharp....Man, I could see rivulets in the iris and blood vessels on the pupils! Yup, that's what this puppy does in F2, but you'll want to stop it down to F3.5-F5.6, 600-800 ISO and 1/250-400 sec for decent portraits. On a crop sensor body you can't take head with torso shots....it just crops in too deep....getting around the photo shoot is going to be tricky. You'll start to miss shots with manual focus and you'll have to expect some motion blur in full manual mode. But this lens is capable of gorgeous color rendition and rich detail. Yes this is the poor man's Zeiss or Otus. It is the real deal and it will force you to consider composition and lighting--things photographers know by trade but sometimes forget to do with the ease of creative control and full auto mode. If you want to fall back on your basic skillsets and reap the rewards, this glass is for you. If you think that it focuses fast without quirks, you are sorely mistaken. You'll miss focus more than a few times in moments that can never be recreated. I missed a few shots at my shoot. I was, however, just shy of astounded on the resolution achieved. On a crop sensor body, you would be better served with a fast 50 or an 85mm. Even a 70-200 would get the job done. But none can get as tack sharp with a shallow depth of field (not stopped down) on this tight a budget.
