This lens might be on the low end of cine lenses but it provides a gorgeous video.

The image from this lens is pleasing overall, and the focal length is perfect for my style of shooting. There's a definite increase in CA over equivalent Canon and Sigma lenses, but not too extreme

Great lens for the price love it

Wow is amazing lens I love it A fast, shaprp and affordable lens for any camera or dslr with EF mount. Matches the other Cine DS Rokinon lenses in color and size. I dont think there is much use of opening it wider than T2.8, but it is almost as good as Compact Primes. I RECOMMEND TO buy this lens is AMAZiNG

Rokinon 20mm T1.9 Cine DS Lens for Sony E

I'm a fan of Elite Brands lenses and am working on the cine ds set, have three so far. Apart from the lens hood there is little not to like. I found some vignetting at T1.9, but quite even by T2.8. I 'borrowed' the Sony 20mm lens profile for editing. Centring seems good and this is a bright lens! So if you want to combine wide apertures with sunny days, consider a neutral density filter.

Nice Glass / could use a better shade

Excellent Optic - the flower hood is not ideal. I've been using it on my Lumix G95 - it suffers same issue as the 50mm Rokinon with a similar hood in terms of Glare and angle you can use before running into the problem / sun spots appearing in a frame - I did gaffer tape wrap the hood a bit and it gained significantly on glare angle. I'd not hesitate to recommend it as a lens, at T2.8 onward it is impressive. It is also a good size for a lot of work conditions and should prove very useful to have in ones Kit.

Excellent Lens!

We recently purchased a Canon 6D mark II and I wished to do video recordings but needed a wider lens. This one covers an area of 92 degrees. We found it a great lens for the videos without any grey areas, out of focus areas, no aberrations or any other issues. With enough light, we set it at F-8, or higher, the range at 5 feet and everything was in focus and sharp! It worked well for close-up shots. With low light, setting it at F 1.9 to 2.8 produced great images. Overall, it's a great lens and we are looking at adding more Rokinon lens in future.

Is this essentially the same lens as the 20mm f1.8, but for Cine?
Asked by: Stanley
If you are referring to BH #RO2018CES then yes, optically it is pretty much the same lens. The difference is the Cinema version has gear rings included and a de-clicked aperture.

This lens has a 77mm Filter Thread. You could use a filter like the Tiffen 77mm Black Pro-Mist 1/4 Filter, B&H # TIBPMQ77, with it. https://bhpho.to/2UL5RKv
