Rokinon 50mm f/1.4 overview

  • 1Description

The first Rokinon lens to feature autofocus, the AF 50mm f/1.4 FE Lens is a fast standard prime designed for full-frame Sony E-mount mirrorless digital cameras. The bright f/1.4 maximum aperture is well suited to controlling depth of field for selective focus imagery, and also suits working in low-light conditions. The optical design incorporates three aspherical elements to minimize spherical aberrations for cleaner, clearer image quality and an Ultra Multi-Coating has also been applied to limit flare and ghosting when working in strong lighting conditions. The lens' autofocus motor works in conjunction with Sony cameras' AF systems for quick and precise focusing performance, and manual focus override is also available for more refined control. A versatile normal-length lens, this lens mixes a fast, bright design with autofocus to present an ideal all-around optic.

A standard prime designed for full-frame Sony E-mount mirrorless digital cameras, this lens can also be used on APS-C models where it will provide a 75mm equivalent focal length.
Bright, fast f/1.4 maximum aperture excels in low-light conditions and also affords increased control over depth of field for working with selective focus techniques.
Three aspherical elements are incorporated in the optical design to control spherical aberrations for increased clarity and resolution from edge to edge.
An Ultra Multi-Coating has been applied to individual elements in order to reduce flare and ghosting for increased contrast and a neutral color balance.
The integrated autofocus motor works in conjunction with Sony cameras' focusing systems for quick, accurate, and precise AF control. Manual focus override is also available for refining your focus position.
Rounded nine-blade diaphragm contributes to a smooth and pleasing bokeh quality.

    Rokinon 50mm f/1.4 reviews

    AF 50mm f/1.4 FE Lens for Sony E is rated 3.8 out of 5 by 22.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic lens for the money! I was really surprised how good this lens is for the price. This is Rokinons first autofocusing lens and it came out at the same time as Sonys 50mm 1.4 but at less than half the cost. I got both of them to see how they compare and which one is more worth it. Being Rokinons first autofocusing lens I was suspecting slow and inaccurate autofocusing but that wasnt the case. Comparing the two lenses the Rokinon actually focused faster but with a few more missed shots. The bokeh looks really good and the lens is quite sharp wide open but the Sony does beat it out. I have a full comparison with sample photos and video on Youtube that you can check out, just search for 50mm 1.4 Rokinon Sony Max Yuryev This lens is a focus by wire (electronic focusing) lens just like the majority of Sonys E lenses so you dont have that same famous long and smooth manual focus ring that the manual focus Rokinons have, but the ring is fairly easy and consistent to use for a FBW system and has a slower throw than Sonys 50mm 1.4. Overall I think this is a fantastic lens and definitely worth it from a price to performance standpoint. Your images will look nice and sharp with a good shallow depth of field if you want it. Rokinons been stepping up their game the last few years and Im really excited to see what Rokinon puts out next!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Fantastic lens but.. I really want to keep this lens. The autofocusing for photo is amazingly fast, and the image quality is fantastic. The reason why i am returning this lens is because the noises that i makes when shooting video. I understand that on AF-C that its acceptable to have some focusing noise but even when i am manual focusing, it still makes noises when I turn the focusing ring.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best for the money After tried bunch of lenses, i think i found my portrait lens. Of course i recomend Sony Zeiss lenses but if you have a tight budget and looking for wide aperture prime lens you can get it without question. I love close and low light shoot, autofocus is slower than Sony 50mm 1.4 but i don't use af much. Sharpness is quite good, contrast is little bit low. Bokeh are amazing. Focus ring is smooth and sensitive, this is give you a chance of make focus with small movements. Focus motor is noisy (if you will use af in video and don't have external mic think about it.)

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from This one has autofocus! Just got it. It did come in 1 1/2 days even though the big snowstorm is raging. I have tried it briefly. A photo is enclosed, taken handheld with a greenish desklamp for lighting. I've noticed on looking at it 100% that there is some fringing, but I'm sure with LR or PS that will go away. Other than that, I have no problems. I might use this for video in which case it's loud on the AF. But for landscape (smaller objects) and portraits, this lens is really beautiful. Snowflakes and bokeh can create wonderful winter scenes. I have other Rokinons, all MF. They are great. This one adds the AF and is even greater! Nice, simple design and all electronic. For the price, you cannot beat it. Get it on sale!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from affortable AF 50mm F1.4 FE No surprise that Sony has not produced an affordable lens - they seem to thrive on making expensive FE lenses by sticking Zeiss or G or GM on their lenses and very very few just Sony branded - at an affordable price - so I am happy to see others produce lenses for the A7 bodies - but sadly Sigma and Tamron have stopped making lenses for Sony E APS-C - so they might know that Sony has no long term plans for the A6300 line for example - anyway the Rokinon 50mm F1.4 is worth the money - yes maybe not as well built as those $2500 lenses - but it is all-around well built - AF is not bad - of course the A7 bodies do not win any award for fast auto focus - but it is decent and just as fast as the expensive Sony counterpart - I am very happy to see Rokinon make AF lenses now - hope they will do lots more lenses - I think it is priced right - Out of focus rendering is very pleasant as well - So I would recommend getting the Rokinon over the Sony counterpart any day and put the savings into another lens etc

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great For Photos, Consider for Video. Great picture, great depth. Definitely 5 stars for the capability of a full frame lens with a 1.4f and auto focus for the price! However, similar to other reviews, the autofocus is definitely noisy & high pitched. Not a problem for photos, but something to consider for video. If you're using external mics, you shouldn't have any problem, but if you're filming with a shotgun mic it's something to consider especially if you're using AF-C as it's constantly noisy.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome! Totally Satisfied. Great Quality! I have a Sony a7 and i'm totally satisfied with this lens, i think the price is incredible and i think that it will increase in few months because it's simply amazing, the quality it's great. The AF Works very good, better than I expected. The bad thing it's the minimun focus distance about 0.45m. So if you want great quality without pay for a CZ Lens and without use mount adapter this is a very good option.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Unusable for video Great for pictures but creates noises in video mode that can be heard 10 feet away. The video is good but the audio is rendered useless. Sent lens back and bought a Sony lens. Will buy this lens if the noise problem is fixed.
