Offering a super wide field of view along with an autofocus design, the AF 14mm f/2.8 FE from Rokinon is a prime wide-angle lens for Sony E-mount mirrorless cameras. Its relatively fast f/2.8 maximum aperture suits working in difficult lighting conditions, and its optical design incorporates three aspherical and two low dispersion elements to help reduce distortion and color fringing for improved clarity and sharpness. An Ultra Multi-Coating has also been applied, as well as an integrated lens hood, to suppress flare and ghosting for greater contrast and color accuracy when working in strong lighting conditions. Additionally, the lens' autofocus motor provides quick and precise focusing performance, and manual focus override is also available for more refined control.
- E-Mount Lens/Full-Frame Format
- Aperture Range: f/2.8 to f/22

Rokinon 14mm f/2.8 AF Reviews
Edges too soft
I tried this lens on a Nikon D850. Mine was the Rokinon version but the same lens comes in a Samyang version. Before this I had a Tamron 15-30 f2.8 G2 which was great except it was big and heavy. In use it was fine but it was too much to carry for travel with my other lenses, so I got this because it is small and light and had good reviews. The center sharpness is fine but the edges were unacceptable for my use (and I was stopped down, not wide open in my tests). If you do shoot wide open be aware the vignetting is severe - worse I have seen. Since I want it for landscape and architecture, the blurry right and left side were unacceptable. I don't just mean the corners, I mean the entire right and left side (right side a bit more) from top to bottom, going well into the frame (10-15%). I really wanted this to work as a lightweight alternative, but it won't work for my needs (making large prints with good detail). If you are photographing things that fill the center up close and letting the background go naturally out of focus, then it would be fine. Thankfully BH has a no hassle return policy, as I sent it back today after two days of testing.
I was looking for an astrophotography lens for my Canon t7 and I definitely found it!
Rokinon has refused to fix major flaw in this lens for years
Huge flaw of this lens is that Rokinon stubbornly refuses to fix a gigantic bug, easy to address but they don't care, after getting nagged for years. This lens will not communicate the 14mm focal length over to your camera, even though it's an AF/active-mount lens. So for SteadyShot to work, and for EXIF data to populate correctly (for loading lens profiles, etc.), you have to spend wasteful/priceless minutes probably missing your shot, digging into the menus to manually set it, and then (remember to) switch back to automatic focal length recognition when you swap out the lens.
It is just what I wanted for night photography and great vie
Works well with my D500. Tested it taking pictures at Quart Site AZ and Death Valley.
A winner lens
We compared this lens to the Canon equivalent and found that even at open apertures this lens came so close to cannons results that for us don't justify to spend the money for the Canon lens. We compared the results at 128 magnification. This lens is a winner.
Rokinon AF 14mm f/2.8
It works well, really like the extra wide angle I get from my 14mm. I have a Sony a9 and Sony A7rIII. It allows me, for a very reasonable price, to have one of my cameras as a fixed wide angle and the other flexible, with the 17-28mm f/2.8.
Really very good
At first I was a little concerned that it wasn't sharp enough. But I kept with it, and learned its peculiarities. So after a few days I started to get really sharp images. I'm not sure why...I would have thought that the wider the lens the easier to get sharp images...but there you go. I just used it for a pro photoshoot (even coverage), and the images came out very nice. There are still moments when I feel that I'm getting dull images..the lens doesn't give me that "magic" feel. But it's also not an expensive wide angle. So it does what I need it to. Maybe some day I'll spring for an expensive wide angle.
I bought this lens for Canon EF mount. I also have Fringer EF-FX Pro II adapter. The lens produces great results on both Canon and Fuji XT1 and XT2. Time to take this baby to shoot some landscapes of Arizona!
