Rokinon 85mm f/1.4 overview

  • 1Description

An ideal portrait-length prime, the Canon EF mount 85mm f/1.4 AS IF UMC from Rokinon pairs a bright, fast f/1.4 maximum aperture with a short-telephoto focal length to suit portraiture and other applications where shallow depth of field is desired. This manual focus lens incorporates one hybrid aspherical element to control chromatic aberrations for increased clarity and even sharpness and illumination. An Ultra Multi-Coating has also been applied to lens elements to reduce lens flare and ghosting for increased contrast and color neutrality. This lens is also characterized by an internal focusing design, which maintains the overall length during use, as well as an 8-blade rounded diaphragm for a smooth bokeh quality.

This 85mm f/1.4 lens features a Canon EF mount, and is compatible with full-frame sensors or APS-C sensors, where it will provide a 136mm equivalent focal length.
A fast f/1.4 maximum aperture benefits working in difficult lighting conditions and also enables extensive control over your focus position for shallow depth of field shooting.
One hybrid aspherical element helps to control chromatic aberrations and distortions for increased clarity and sharpness.
An Ultra Multi-Coating has been applied to lens elements to reduce lens flare and ghosting for increased contrast and color fidelity.
This manual focus lens features an internal focus design to maintain the overall lens length during use and the front filter mount does not rotate when focusing to better enable working with polarizers, graduated ND, and other filter types that require precise positioning.
A rounded eight-blade diaphragm contributes to a pleasing out-of-focus quality when using selective focus or shallow depth of field techniques.
This Canon EF mount version of this lens features a chip to relay focus confirmation, use of auto-exposure modes, and EXIF data between the lens and camera.

    Rokinon 85mm f/1.4 reviews

    85mm f/1.4 AS IF UMC Lens for Canon EF with AE Chip is rated 3.0 out of 5 by 4.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Rokinon brand is best for the bucks! I have owned several Rokinon lens for my Canons. This is my second 85mm with the latest one with the AE chip. Works great with my new Canon 6D. Super sharp and perfect bokeh. You will not be disappointed.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Should not be F1.4 Hate to give it 1 start but the AE chip doesnt work with my cannon. Doesnt communicate with the body and there is no manual way to change the aperture which becomes a problem. Maybe I would have had a better experience if I could stop it down but wide open at F/1.4 its extremely soft. There is also a lot of bloom around the highlights. If your going for a dreamy look at the larger aperture this could work but I would rather have the option for sharp photos and soften later. If I had the full manual lens (no chip) I would give probably a 3 out of 5 because it does produce some very nice bokeh.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from For tripod use only. I wanted this for portraits and for some night photography. Faster than the Canon 1.8 and much less expensive than the Canon f1.2 it seemed a good middle ground. The lens does talk to the camera so it was easy to use settings as a manual lens, but the auto focus confirmation was way off. Hand holding and getting anything in focus was impossible. Using a tripod and live view with 10x expansion would give sharp shots at f2 and above. Forget f1.4, nothing is sharp. Wanting to hand hold for portraits I elected to return the lens.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sharp images on a budget! I've had a few weeks to play around with the lens, and I've have to say, at this price, it's an awesome lens. I have no problems shooting wide open, and as I use it for portraits, it doesn't bother me that the corners are a bit soft. It's hard to nail focus at 1.4, especially with a manual lens, but when you do, the results are amazing. The build quality of the lens is great, except for the lens hood, which could have had a tighter fit. It has some wiggle room, and sometimes makes a clacking sound when you handle the lens, and for me, that makes the lens sound "plasticy". The focus ring is wonderfully smooth and damped, and it has plenty of travel which makes nailing focus easier. One thing I have found though is that the minimum focusing distance seems to be a little more than 3.28'. It's probably closer to 3,7'. Still, this lens is an easy 5 stars, especially considering the price.
