Rokinon 21mm f/1.4 overview

  • 1Description

Combining a wide-angle perspective with a fast maximum aperture, this 21mm f/1.4 Lens from Rokinon is designed for Fujifilm X mirrorless cameras and provides a 31.5mm equivalent focal length. One extra-low dispersion element and a trio of aspherical elements are incorporated into the lens construction, and help to control aberrations and distortions for increased clarity and sharpness. The bright f/1.4 maximum aperture excels in difficult lighting conditions and also enables greater control over focus placement, which is further complemented by the manual focus design and rounded nine-blade diaphragm to produce a quality of bokeh. Additionally, an Ultra Multi-Coating has also been applied to all lens elements to reduce lens flare and ghosting for increased contrast and color fidelity when working in harsh lighting conditions.

This 21mm f/1.4 lens is designed for APS-C-format Fujifilm X-mount mirrorless cameras and provides a 31.5mm equivalent focal length.
Bright f/1.4 maximum aperture is ideal for working in low-light conditions and also offers greater control over your focus position for selective focus applications.
One extra-low dispersion element and three aspherical elements are incorporated within the lens design and help to control chromatic and comatic aberrations, as well as reduce color fringing, for sharper, clearer imagery.
An Ultra Multi-Coating has been applied to all lens elements in order to suppress lens flare and ghosting for increased contrast and color accuracy.
This manual focus lens has a non-rotating 58mm front filter mount to better enable the use of polarizing, graduated ND, and other filter types that require precise positioning. Additionally, its internal focus design maintains the overall length of the lens during use.
Rounded nine-blade diaphragm contributes to a pleasing out-of-focus quality when using selective focus or shallow depth of field techniques.

    Rokinon 21mm f/1.4 reviews

    21mm f/1.4 Lens for Fujifilm X (Silver) is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 7.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Light, simple, and sharp I was very impressed with the sharpness edge to edge. Of course one cannot expect perfection especially when wide open, but the variation in sharpness across the frame is symmetrical and consistent. It sharpens up quite nicely in a big way by F5.6. One review mentioned poor quality control but my lens seems to be perfect. This lens is not too wide for the use of a circular polarizer, but I wouldn't try one on a wider lens. My CP works well on this lens, without vignetting. Remember this lens is manual aperture and manual focus, and there are no electronic contacts on the mount, so if you like automatic lenses this lens is not for you.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Quality and Value I have always preferred a 35mm FOV for a general purpose lens to use for events, street shooting, travel, and casual portraits. With Fuji, that meant getting the expensive, and somewhat large 23mm f/1.4 or the wider 18mm f/2.0. The 21mm f/1.4 Rokinon sits between the two Fuji lenses and so far, has worked well as a general purpose lens. This is my fourth Samyang built lens and like the other three, the build quality is excellent. The body is plastic but is well done and the mount is metal. The aperture ring adjusts in half-stops with a positive click and the focus ring turns smoothly. Rokinon also supplies a removable petal hood, also plastic, and a nice felt-like storage bag. This is a manual focus lens, which I prefer over autofocus, but with the focus peaking and magnify features on my X-E2, it is easy to focus. So far the image quality has been excellent. The sample images I have included are straight-out-of-the-camera JPEGs with some slight cropping to improve the composition and no other post processing.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Pretty good, some minor flaws Recently got the Fuji X version of this lens to use as a budget film lens. I really like the smooth manual focus and mildly-wide angle. In my testing I found the lens to be pretty soft in the middle wide open; it's most obvious when you're focused on something far away. Also found there to be some mild vignetting when wide open. Overall though, I'm happy with this lens.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great lens for the price Although it is manual focus, this is still an amazing lens. It is very sharp wide open and can handle rough use too. I love this lens and use it a lot.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Lovely little lens I quite like this lens. It's nicely sharp in the center, and has decent sharpness in the corners, even wide open. About 5.6, the corners sharpen up very nicely. It has noticeable vignetting wide open and even stopped down, there's a touch. It's not too much to work with. I love the contrast. It has the look of some older film lenses, nearly Zeiss like, much more so than Fuji's own lenses. This is my second Rokinon. I love the look. Out of focus areas are buttery smooth, both in front and behind the focus point, though the bokeh balls show a distinct onion skin. Sun stars are well defined and show nice long points. The focus ring is very smooth, and it's easy to get shots sharp with my X-T2. Some coma shows in the extreme corners, barely. This works well for astrophotography. There is purple fringing in high contrast areas shooting into the light. Just a touch, but it's there. Flaring is minimal. At a 32mm equivalent it works well with zone focus for street work.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Small, Light, Sharp This lens appears to be of an older design. Why do I type that?� There's a silver ring at the base that's visible when on the camera (also visible in the product photo, but I didn't take notice before buying), which doesn't go well with the black on black on black on black of the rest of the setup.� The focus travel / rotation feels short, and therefore is more difficult to nail the focus (compared to the Rokinon 85mm f/1.4, which has a much longer (and smoother) turn).� Going from f/1.4 to f/2 is, like all other f stop changes, a 2 click endeavor / 1/2 stop increment.� In contrast, the 85mm f/1.4 is 1 click to f/2, and then 1/2 stop increments / 2 clicks to all other stops until f/22, when it's 1 stop / 1 click again.� The build feels cheaper than the 85mm, too, though the mounting depth is considerably shorter, as this lens is not a modified lens made for a 35mm frame.� If you look at the 85mm, you'll see that they've made it a lens for a 35mm frame, and simply put a black extension tube on it to match the flange of the Fujifilm APS-C frame (a clever, albeit physically larger for smaller sensors, way to design and manufacturer fewer types of glass).� The design of the 85mm suggests Rokinon is seeking to reduce costs by making lenses that are modular to multiple camera systems, a move not usually made by freshman manufacturers.� It's just conjecture, though.� (source: manufacturing experience, and I took the 85mm apart for kicks) Color fringing?� I'm sure it's there, but I've not tested for this.� The 85mm has a little wide open, but it's not only unapparent to any non-photographer, it's a color slider away from being gone, and you're probably better served to not pay it much attention.� Sharp?� I think so.� Sufficient for professional work?� It depends on what you're doing, but if you're a wedding or other moving-subject photographer, you'd probably prefer an autofocus lens.� In short, I strongly feel composition will draw far more (worthy) attention than lens details. Reason for 4 stars instead of 5?� The build feels slightly cheap.� That's it.� On the plus side?� Mechanically, I'm excited to have a lens that doesn't have a circuit board and motor in it; I just have to take care of it, and it'll last me a very long time.� BIFL (Buy It For Life) is a good mantra.� It's a simple design.� Simple is good.� It's very light, has a bright aperture, and helps you take pictures.� It does what it says it does, and it does it pretty well.� The modern obsession with tack sharpness and deeper pixels seems to have engulfed the art such advancements were created to support, though even the latter part of that statement is up for debate. Finally, I don't appreciate that B&H, like many other companies, solicits for reviews after purchase. I do like their website, pricing, and customer service.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Value If you can deal with manual focus, this lens is a great bargain, especially when compared to Fuji's 23 1.4. I haven't tested the Fuji but this Rokinon lens is sharp enough for my needs. I also like the build, perfect aperture ring resistance, and smooth focusing ring. Best of all, it's compact and light (though not as compact as Fuji's 23 f2).
