Rokinon 35mm f/1.2 overview

  • 1Description

A truly fast prime for mirrorless cameras, the black 35mm f/1.2 ED AS UMC CS Lens from Rokinon is designed for APS-C-format Sony E-mount cameras, and provides a 52.5mm equivalent focal length. This lens is characterized by its bright f/1.2 maximum aperture, which allows for extensive control over depth of field and selective focus, and also benefits shooting in difficult lighting conditions. The optical design incorporates one extra-low dispersion element and two aspherical elements in order to minimize both chromatic and spherical aberrations, for increased clarity and sharpness, and individual elements also feature an Ultra Multi-Coating to reduce lens flare and ghosting. The manual focus design affords precise focusing control down to 1.25' and a rounded nine-blade diaphragm also contributes to a pleasing bokeh quality.

This 35mm f/1.2 prime is designed for APS-C-format Sony E-mount mirrorless cameras and provides a slightly-longer-than-normal 52.5mm equivalent focal length.
Exceptionally fast f/1.2 maximum aperture affords a high degree of depth of field control, to suit selective focus shooting, and also benefits working in low-light conditions.
Two aspherical elements are featured in the optical design in order to minimize spherical aberrations, increase sharpness, and provide even illumination from edge-to-edge.
One extra-low dispersion element is used to reduce chromatic aberrations and color fringing for improved clarity and color accuracy.
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.
Manual focus operation allows for precise control with a minimum focusing distance of 1.25'.
Rounded nine-blade diaphragm contributes to a smooth and pleasing bokeh quality.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing deal This lens is very impressive for the price. Super good bokeh and DOF. It can be hard to manually focus at f/1.2 but you get use to it over time.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great performance for an affordable price I bought this lens as part of a project to replace the kit zoom lenses for my Sony NEX-5T and a6300 by a collection of prime lenses. Zoom lenses have to make a compromise between sharpness, wide aperture, and weight. All three are important to me, because I often take photos hiking in remote places, where the camera equipment has to fit into two jacket pockets. Typically I take two prime lenses along with the camera body, plus an iPhone (for quick shots and macro). My wide angle prime lenses are the Rokinon 8mm f/2.8 Fisheye II, the Rokinon 12mm f/2.0, and the iPhone. My near-tele lens is the Sony 50mm f/1.8. This lens (the Rokinon 35mm f/1.2) fills the gap between wide angle and telephoto lenses (more on those at the end). It is well-built, very fast for twilight and night shots, and sharp across the whole field of view. Chromatic aberration is undetectable, a weak coma tail shows up in the corners (only when imaging stars in the night sky with open aperture). The central sharpness appears to be limited by spherical aberration, causing a defocus disk with a darker center on one side of the focus and a disk with a brighter center on the other side. There is a substantial drop-off in brightness toward the corners when wide open (vignetting). It can be corrected easily by working with RAW files -- or it becomes a feature for highlighting the center of an image.  The wide aperture is great for focusing on a target and leaving the rest in a smooth blur. Focus peaking on the a6300 helps a lot to quickly move the focus to the right distance. Overall, I find that this lens combines great performance and light weight for an affordable price. There was one small initial glitch when I received the lens. The hood was stuck to the lens barrel and required a fair amount of force to twist it off. But after that first time it worked smoothly. An aside about longer tele prime lenses: In that case image stabilization becomes a fourth requirement. I have not found any satisfactory modern prime lens and use instead old high-end Canon lenses (Canon 135mm f/2.8 and Canon 300mm f/4.0 L, both with the new FD mount and an adapter). The lenses on the market tend to be super-heavy and super-expensive. Most of them are designed for full-frame, not APS-C.
