Rokinon 135mm f/2.0 Overview

By B&H Photo's

The 135mm f/2.0 ED UMC Lens for Sony A 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.

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.

Unfortunately for some reason the chip does not work on the D3500. The lenses are compatible but in fully manual mode and only on M, the other modes give a lens incompatible warning.

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?
