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.

Rokinon 50mm f/1.4 AF Reviews

Beautiful look

By Thomas
Rated 5 out of 5
Date: 2021-11-24

This older version of the lens is definitely showing it's age in the electronics area. But I gave 5 stars because it was on sale, and for the $ it's a beautiful lens that is very fast. The autofocus is probably the main issue. Compared to more modern designs, it's very noisy, and not super fast. So sports would be out. I do mostly live concert shooting, and some interview work, and even with live mics, it doesn't seem loud enough to cause me audio issues. I use all external mics, so if you use the camera mic it would probably cause some issues. The look, clarity and sharpness are all amazing. (For video at least - I cant comment on how pixel peeping photographers would find it.)

Great lens with firmware v33

By Eric

A good lens made better with firmware v33. Increases speed of AF significantly on A7III. Older AF motors are not silent but are not noisy for stills. Good colors, sharpness, and focus fall off.

Great Lens for Sony E

By Gordon

Date: 2020-09-05

This is a fast lens (Wide aperture) for the Sony e mount system. However, it does tend to miss focus if you're shooting sports or action shots. Also, the motor is loud so keep that in mind if you're trying to shoot video. Otherwise this is a great photography lens for architecture or anything that doesn't move.

Rokin sturdy

I was debating since my girlfriend is with Sigma, I wanted something temporary as my everyday lens but since I bought it its my go to. It feels sturdy, solid and has a great feel. I am very happy for this buy. B&H did an amazing job delivering fast and safely right before the christmas rush.

brilliant lens - but A7RIII incompatible

I was happy with this lens with A7RII. But on A7RIII it doesn't work in continuous mode because firmware problem. I hope it will be fixed... But niw it doesn't work, Rokinin confirned this problem. It was one of ny most used lenses :(

THE LENS TROUBLE WITH AF

By joo
Rated 1 out of 5
Date: 2018-07-02

i recently bought this lenses on the kit with the (14-35-50mm AF Lens) by rokinon, exactly one month later, the lens stoped to read on my sony a7rIII, The other lenses are ok at this time, but i really don't understand this trouble, because the lens doesn't get damage on a job, it was very clean and used just a little bit. it's a really bad experience for me, who live's in brazil and here we don't have costumer assistence from rokinon.

Disappointing

By Ralph

Auto focus is average. The manual focus override is fairly useless. I'd much prefer an on/off switch. Image quality is pretty good. I suppose for the money, it's an ok purchase.

BEST BUY AMONG 35mm f1.4

By Thomas
Rated 5 out of 5
Date: 2020-10-13

If an f1.4 35mm is what you are looking for the Rokinon/Samyang at $400 US this has to be the best bang-for-your-dollar in photography.  It’s sharp, has gorgeous bokeh and is solidly built out of metal.  It compares well against options three times its price.  The only drawback is its weight and if a light 35mm for use on a gimbal is your goal one of the f1.8 lenses might be a better way to go.

question

Has anyone used this for video? I shoot in manual but have used the native sony lenses in the past with AF and Face Detection, wondering how this compares.
Asked by: Matthew R.
This lens will work well for video. It will work with the AF and face detection on the Sony.

question

Can someone with this lens tell me if the recent firmware update that was supposed to help the low light AF also helps the loud AF noise at all? Is that loud AF on all copies or just some? Thanks!
Asked by: Jamie
Manufacturers do not indicate to B&H which firmware version is in their product and we unfortunately do not have the ability to check. Please consider that new firmware could be introduced at anytime and it could change even during the time it takes to ship from us to you. We recommend when you receive your lens, check with the Rokinion website to see if you are running the latest version. If not, you can at that time do an update.

question

whats the difference between the Rokina 50mm f 1.4 and samyang 50mm f 1.4?
Asked by: Jose T.
Samyang manufacturers Rokinon lenses and normally their lenses that match in focal length and f/stop are the same quality. However, the Rokinon AF 50mm f/1.4 FE Lens for Sony E B&H # RO5014AFSE is auto focus and auto aperture while the Samyang 50mm f/1.4 AS UMC Lens for Sony E B&H # SA50F14LSE is all manual. That is the reason for the price differential.

question

Does it have face detection/eye AF capabilities?
Asked by: Alex
This lens is a Sony E mount and will fit all Sony E mount cameras. As for the face detection and eye autofocus? If your camera has those functions the lens supports them. I use the Sony A7RII and face detection and eye auto focus work perfectly. I do not know if the A6000 supports Eye Autofocus. I believe it supports face detection.

question

Does the lens that B7H has in stock have the latest firmware update as of 1-25-18 to resolve af in low light issue?
Asked by: Tiki
From what I understand, it does not have a firmware update, but as Rokinon herself can help in this quest, I only have more difficulties regarding the agility of the focus.

question

How fast is the AF in low light for moving subjects?
Asked by: David O.
Its fast, maybe not as fast as high end lenses but you pay double to get fractions of a second. Definitely have no issues with the speed for our use. A6300, work camera used to capture conferences, many low light situations but the action isn't as fast either.

question

Will this lens be compatible with Sony A6000, title says E-Mount full frame, just curious to know what will happen if I attempt to use it on a sony a6000?
Asked by: Anonymous
Yes it will. I've used it on my a6000 as well. You just have to take into consideration the crop factor, so it'll make this lens like a 75mm or 85mm lens
