  • 1Description

Home in on close-up subjects with the Micro Four Thirds mount 100mm f/2.8 Macro Lens from Rokinon, which affords life-size 1:1 magnification along with a minimum focusing distance of 1'. This manual focus portrait-length lens also incorporates one high refractive index element and one extra-low dispersion element into its design to reduce chromatic aberrations and distortions throughout the focusing range. An Ultra Multi-Coating has also been applied to minimize flare and ghosting for increase contrast and color neutrality. A long focal length lens with close focusing abilities and a high magnification ratio, this macro lens is ideal for making close-up, detailed images of nearby subjects.

This 100mm f/2.8 lens features a Micro Four Thirds mount, and is compatible with Micro Four Thirds sensors where it will provide a 200mm equivalent focal length.
A bright f/2.8 maximum aperture is useful for working in a variety of lighting conditions and the minimum f/32 aperture helps to attain a long depth of field when working with close-up subjects.
One high refractive index element and one extra-low dispersion element help to control chromatic aberrations and minimize distortions throughout the focusing and aperture ranges.
An Ultra Multi-Coating has been applied to lens elements to reduce lens flare and ghosting for increased clarity, contrast, and color fidelity.
Featuring a macro design, this lens affords a 1:1 maximum magnification ratio along with a minimum focusing distance of 1'.
Benefitting working with especially close subjects, this manual focus lens features an internal focus design to maintain the overall lens length during use. Additionally, the front filter mount does not rotate when focusing to better enable the use of polarizers, graduated ND, and other filter types that require precise positioning.
A rounded nine-blade diaphragm contributes to a pleasing out-of-focus quality when using selective focus or shallow depth of field techniques.

    Rokinon 100mm f/2.8 reviews

    100mm f/2.8 Macro Lens for Micro Four Thirds is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 1.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from It exceeded my expectations About 1 year ago, I've been given the opportunity of having a short hands-on experience with the Rokinon 100mm f/2.8 Macro at B&H Manhattan store. I made, at the time, some indoor beautiful and easy candid shots of people. Recently I finally decided to purchase it. It makes a terrific combo with my Olympus OMD EM1, benefitting from its sensor's 5-axis image stabilization (IS). This allows anyone with a reasonably steady hand to leave the mono/tripod at home. The EM1 (and some other cameras) also helps manual focusing (MF assist) by enhancing in-focus subjects within the image you see in the camera. Techno freaks, beware, this is a fully manual lens. To benefit from IS, for instance, one has to look for it in the camera menu, and set the correct focal distance (100mm) there. This is because there is no electric interface between camera and lens. Aperture has to be set manually on the dedicated lens ring, for every shot. This is easy to do. However (manual) focusing requires some practice, even with MF Assist.. Since this is a macro lens, you will find 2/3 of the focus ring travel rotation to be used between 1 and 5 feet, leaving only about 1/3 to cover distances between 5 feet and infinity. Take some time to practice and don't expect perfection to happen in your very first shots. However, after climbing your learning ladder, you'll be rewarded with beautiful shots, I'm sure! You cannot use any camera automatic modes, shutter priority (S) included. Aperture priority (A), however, is allowed, since the camera will choose the speed which will obtain the exposure you selected, using the amount of light that reaches the sensor, even not knowing the aperture value you manually did set on the lens ring. Focus ring is a joy to use, smooth but stiff enough to prevent inadvertent runaways. I'm sending 2 (handheld) pictures of my younger son's guinea pig. One was made about 4 feet away, with flash, 1/60 sec and f/8. The second was taken about 16 inches away from the animal's nose, no flash, 1/80 sec and f/3.5 (notice the in-focus shallow area). For candid shots, I like to leave the focus ring at infinity (unlike other lenses, infinity is right at the ring's stop end), A mode with the aperture ring set at f/5.0. With this, I can point and shoot for most candid shots, anything beyond 30 feet will be in focus. As far as quality to price ratio is concerned, a full 5 star score is appropriate. The only annoying feature I can find in this lens is its weight (almost 2 pounds). Metal and glass are both heavy, only the sunshade is made of plastic!
