Rokinon 50mm f/1.2 overview

  • 1Description

A truly fast prime offering a portrait-length perspective, this silver 50mm f/1.2 Lens from Rokinon is designed for Sony E mirrorless cameras where it provides a 75mm equivalent focal length. The combination of the long perspective and bright f/1.2 maximum aperture enables extensive control over focus placement, which is further complemented by the manual focus design and rounded nine-blade diaphragm for a smooth bokeh quality. The lens construction incorporates a pair of aspherical elements to minimize chromatic aberrations and distortions for a cleaner, sharper image quality void of color fringing. An Ultra Multi-Coating has also been applied to boost contrast by suppressing lens flare and ghosting.

This 50mm f/1.2 lens is designed for APS-C-format Sony E mount mirrorless cameras and provides a 75mm equivalent focal length.
Bright, fast f/1.2 maximum aperture benefits working in difficult lighting conditions and also avails extensive control over shallow depth of field.
Two aspherical elements help to control chromatic and comatic aberrations in order to achieve greater sharpness and clarity.
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 62mm front filter mount to better enable the use of polarizing, graduated ND, and other filter types that require precise positioning.
Rounded nine-blade diaphragm contributes to a pleasing out-of-focus quality when using selective focus or shallow depth of field techniques.

    Rokinon 50mm f/1.2 reviews

    50mm f/1.2 Lens for Sony E (Silver) is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 5.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic lens for the a6300!!! I bought this along with the Sigma dc dn art 30mm 1.4 for my a6300. Optics wise I would choose this over the Sigma. The Rokinon is heavier with a plastic body and yet still nice feeling .There is little purple fringing wide open on high contrast scenes and it is completely gone between f2-2.8. The sharpness and contrast throughout is fantastic. I was surprised how well it did at 1.2. There is no noticeable distortion. The colors are great. The bokeh is very smooth. One of my favorite lenses I have ever owned. I plan I using this for Product shots, video and portraits. Remember if you buy this it is for apsc not full frame. Also manual focus only, which is very smooth. I would 100% recommend this lens. I posted a photo I took with it!!!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fast, super-sharp, short tele lens -- manual focus only I use this lens with a Sony alpha 6000. The Lens is incredibly sharp, with little to no barrel distortion or chromatic aberrations. It is a prime lens, and it does not connect electronically to the camera -- this means manual focus only and no EXIF information stored on the shots as to the lens and aperture used. If this is OK with you (it is with me), then this is a great lens. I now use only Rokinon / Samyang prime lenses in addition to the 55-210mm Sony zoom lens for wildlife shots with the a6000. Some people have noted that there should be a distance scale to help with estimating the deapth of field, but after having had the lens for a while you will develop a good intuition for this anyway. One thing that could be an issue some months / heavy usage down the line: f numbers and focusing distances are painted not etched into the lens, so they could wear off after a while I guess.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from A delight to use Images from this lens look outstanding. The sharpness wide open is very respectable, and you be hard-pressed to complain about it from f/2.8f/8. There is some color fringing in high contrast areas, but still very well controlled. Shooting plenty of video, I have noticed that there is slight focus breathing on the lens, but its only apparent if you rack focus from infinity to a close subject quickly vice versa. Build quality is solid. Using the focus/ aperture rings are a pleasure and I'm a huge fan of the look of that metallic red ring :P infinity focus is not at the hard stop but thats not an issue for me. The lens fits snuggly on my a6500. The only complaint would be that the lens hood and rear lens cap are pretty loose.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from incredibly fast and sharp The Rokinon 50 1.2 surprised with top-notch performance wide open, little chromatic aberrations and no vignetting. It's the best performing 50mm I have used on the a6300 so far. If you can deal with the lack of AF go for it! Manuel focus feels smooth and built quality is excellent.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Fast Fifty is a Creativer Alternative Would love to give this compact APS-C optic a full five stars but it lacks some of the refinement other pricier lenses receive. Still, it does its job well as described by many reviewers, with better than average results to boot. The build is typical Samyang - lightweight, plastic exterior, comsumer quality that is fine when given proper care. Focus is a bit tricky wide open due to DoF, not the helicoid. Doesn't actuate the magnifier automatically like my Sigm,a Art series, so it's strictly manual operation every step of the way. Wide open is strictly for creative imaging. DoF is paper thin and very useful in practiced hands - so it you want to yield its creative abiltiies, start practicing! Stopped down a few clicks and it performs as well or better than many primes. Has some CA issues wide open and doesn't like direct sun in the frame. Otherwise, for best quality stop down to f5.6-8 as reviewed. Shoots well at f11-16 which is a bonus. With B&H's recent discount, this is a good lens to have for its creative potential. If you want the world's best 50-55mm, pony up for Sony's 55/1.8. Until then, this will offer plenty of opps for great images.
