Rokinon 16mm T2.2 Cine DS Overview

By B&H Photo's

For mirrorless shooters, or anyone that needs to cover a Super35 sized sensor, this Rokinon 16mm T2.2 Cine DS Lens utilizes a multi-layer coating process for consistent color rendition from lens to lens. With consistent coatings the 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. A removable petal shaped lens hood provides flare protection when shooting without a matte box, and the lens's threaded front accepts 77mm filter rings.

This 16mm lens produces 83.1° angle of view when used with a camera with an APS-C sensor. Hybrid aspherical lenses render sharply defined images with a minimum of distortion and chromatic aberrations and feature a minimum focus distance of 7.9"' from the lens.
Ultra Multicoated 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.
Features industry-standard gearing for focus and aperture rings. Each lens in the Rokinon DS series shares 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.
The lens features an internal focus mechanism, so the front of the lens doesn't rotate when changing focus, allowing you to use filters and clip-on matte boxes without vignetting as you change (pull) focus.
The lens features an 8-bladed iris that provides round out-of-focus highlights and a natural-looking Bokeh. The declicked aperture ring allows for smooth iris pulls.
A removable lens hood provides flare protection without a matte box.
The lens opens up to T2.2, providing the capability for low light shooting or creating a shallow depth of field.

Is this compatible with the BlackMagic Ursa?
Asked by: Gabriela
It is not. This link is for a Sony E-Mount lens. More than likely the Ursa will have an EF mount which means you would need BH #RO1622C instead. This is the EF mount version of this lens. https://bhpho.to/2vBDebd

What will this give on a 1.6 crop factor sensor like Canon SL2? will it maintain it actual size or magnify it
Asked by: Olayinka
The Rokinon 16mm T2.2 Cine DS Lens for Canon EF Mount for APS-C cameras will not give you a crop factor if used with APS-C camera like the SL2 or a Super 35 mm camera. A case where you would have a crop factor would be if your lens was a full frame and you were mounting it to an APS-C/35 mm sensor camera. Then the crop factor would be 1.6. A crop factor exists only when the sensor size is smaller than the lens size.

question

Will this work with the metabones XL .64 speedbooster and the GH4 shooting in 4K cinema mode without vignetting and will peaking and zebra information be available?
Asked by: Anonymous
The Metabones T Speed Booster XL 0.64x Adapter for Full-Frame Canon EF-Mount Lens to Select Micro Four Thirds-Mount Cameras according to Metabones, Canon EF-S lenses are not supported, but third-party EF-mount APS-Clenses can be mounted and will have full electronic functionality Unfortunately, there are no electronics in this Rokinion 16mm lens so no electronic interface is possible. Lastly, while it says 3rd party and that presumably includes Rokinon, there is no confirming data saying that this one does work. However, it is most likely it does cover the GH4 sensor. Please email us to confirm this lens's use with the adapter and the camera. provideo@<a href= http://bhphoto.com target= _blank >bhphoto.com.</a>

question

I see this isn't listed as a full frame lens, I own a Canon 5d mark IV any issues for full frame cameras?
Asked by: Jeremy
While you could mount this on your 5D Mark IV, it is not recommended for you to do so. That is because the resultant image will have severe blackening of the corners known as vignetting. There are no affordable 16mm full frame lenses. But your are in luck in that there are 14mm full frame lenses available. Here is one we can recommend.

Will this lense work with the Nikon D3100?

The Nikon D3100 is an DX/APS-C size sensor camera and this is a DX/APS-C lens so you are good to go.
