Rokinon 35mm f/2.8 overview

  • 1Description

Characterized by its sleek size, the AF 35mm f/2.8 FE Lens from Rokinon is a compact wide-angle prime designed for full-frame Sony E-mount mirrorless cameras. Its versatile wide angle of view is well-suited to general shooting applications and its slim form factor is ideal for travel and everyday photography. The optical design incorporates a pair of aspherical elements and one high refractive index element to suppress spherical aberrations in order to achieve a high degree of sharpness and clarity throughout the aperture range. An Ultra Multi-Coating has also been applied to control flare and ghosting for increased contrast when working in strong lighting conditions. The lens's 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.

Compact wide-angle prime is designed for full-frame Sony E-mount mirrorless cameras, however can also be used with APS-C models where it provides a 52.5mm equivalent focal length.
Maximum f/2.8 aperture helps to achieve the slim, portable form factor while also remaining versatile for use in a variety of lighting conditions.
Two aspherical elements and one high refractive index element help control spherical aberrations and distortions for improved sharpness, resolution, and clarity.
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.
Seven-blade diaphragm contributes to a smooth and pleasing bokeh quality.
Comes with a hood with 40.5mm filter threads.
Aluminum alloy housing is both lightweight and durable.

    Rokinon 35mm f/2.8 reviews

    AF 35mm f/2.8 FE Lens for Sony E is rated 3.9 out of 5 by 25.
    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Slow Autofocus I was really looking forward to this lens. I like the size and the image quality but the auto focus is slow on my A7II. It's often (but not always) almost 3 seconds. I can focus manually with my other lens faster than that. It also doesn't seem to respond to pushing the shutter button half way down to focus which is what I would expect. Instead I have to just wait, watching through the view finder for it to finally focus whether I push the button half way down or not. Unfortunately I'll be returning the lens.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Stick with Manual Rokinons I'm a big fan of Rokinon lenses. I use manual lenses all the time but wanted an affordable 35mm with af so i was pumped when this came out for sony full frame. To sum up, the motor is rather loud and the auto focus is slow. Slow enough that there have been times where I had to double check to make sure I was hitting the focus button. The good news is that it's a very light weight and small lens. But sadly, I will be returning it and getting the manual instead with the faster 1.4 aperture.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Autofocus Issues I couldn't get the lens to autofocus if I put the focus point towards the edge of the image (but still well within the phase detect region of my A7RII). Basically it would only lock focus with the focus point pretty near the center. Had to return it. I also found it to be pretty soft for my taste up until about f/4-5.6. It is probably acceptable for the price though. Size and weight is great. Autofocus problem is a no go.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from 35mm lens working really well so far on my a6000 I just started using the lens and I am impressed with a bunch of things. I love the low profile of the lens and it matches the small frame of the a6000 mirrorless body. The lens comes with a hood that cane be attached permanently without having to swap out on a shoot. If you go with the built in lens hood, be sure to order the smaller filter to cover the lens. You can have the hood on along with the 40.5mm uv filter and solve both issues of reducing flare and protecting the lens. Clever design. I wish the lens was f1.8, but beggars can't be choosers. A nice solid lens... that has good optics.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from nice, but don't lose the lens cap/hood I use this lens with my A9 - given the size and price, it's very nice. There are some limits wrt autofocus on the edges (but very fast otherwise) and wrt overall sharpness, but these are bad only in comparison to much more expensive lenses. It's just fine for travel and street shooting. Just don't lose the lens cap, or the twist-on hood. The hood is prone to come off when constantly jostled when carrying via a shoulder strap. I lost mine. Replacements are simply not available, even from the manufacturer.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect travel companion I bought this lens for my a7II as an inexpensive alternative to the Zeiss 35mm f/2.8. The hope was to have a lightweight travel companion that was bright enough to use in low-light situations without bumping up ISO values too much. I had read previous reviews about slow and inaccurate focusing, loud noise, and so-so optics. Honestly, I've found none of those complaints to be true with my copy of this lens, and my overall experience has been quite positive. It could very well be that some customers have received lemons, but that's the luck of the draw with most mirrorless optics, it seems. Sure, there's some motor noise, but it's no worse than other autofocus lenses I've used before. The sound is reminiscent of the Nikon G-series primes or Canon's STM lenses, not the grinding spasms of cheap, plastic film SLR lenses. The overall build quality makes it feel like a kinder toy, but the same can be said about most small, pancake-like lenses for other systems. Focusing speed and accuracy is more than acceptable. It's not exactly lightning quick in AF-S, but it's fast enough that I didn't think it was any slower than the average modern prime lens. Precision is good enough to do AF-C with Lock-On AF, so long as your subjects aren't moving too fast. (Think street photography, or focus-and-recompose, not sports.) Image quality is rather pleasing, subjectively speaking. Sharpness across the frame is consistent, even wide open, and I've found little evidence of chromatic aberrations -- you might find some LoCA before and after the plane of focus in high-contrast situations, but it's not bothersome. Bokeh is relatively smooth, but there's some outlining around out-of-focus highlights, if that sort of thing bothers you. The optical compromise for delivering such a small lens is the presence of pincushion distortion, though it's most evident when photographing subjects near the closest focal distances. Vignetting is present, but it falls in a gentle manner that I find pleasing. If you turn on in-camera corrections or apply them later in editing software, you'll never notice either of these optical faults, which are hardly offensive to begin with. If you're looking for a small, compact lens for your Sony A7/A9 camera that doesn't strain a tight budget, you've just found it. I hope this review helps.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from COMES WITH A BIG DIRT INSIDE I always recommended all my friend to buy from B&H but i purchased 2 items from here in last year, this Samyang arrived with a BIG DIRT in the middle of the lenses and cannot be removed, and it shows in photos at f 16 as a big black dot. and also the mitakon 50mm 0.95 arrived "well" but when i tried it, the lens produces terrible bokeh and definition because 2 element where in touch and i communicate with B&H but i must take charge of the shipping back and if i do this, i will be paying another time the DHL bills of customs that they overcharged Everytime because here in Argentina the taxes are of 50% and DHL charged me 70% (not included the shipping cost) in resume, now I've lost all my hope in resolving the problem with my lenses. and I'll never buy anything again here. lesson learned.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Compact and good results but important flaws I purchased this as I wanted a 35mm that would be compact and reasonable price-wise. The lens was shipped promptly and arrived quickly. The lens is extremely light and compact and fits very well on the a6300 and a7r2. While it offers good quality when it comes to snapping photos, I found the video to be unusable. The autofocus noise that people have been talking about IS truly an issue for video. Basically, the noise is perceptible at 2.8 but becomes more and more noticeable as the lens is stopped down. If I'm not mistaken, it comes from the rubbing of the aperture blades onto one another. For video, the lens keeps hunting and creates not only a sound issue but a jittery effect also. In conclusion, if you intend to take pictures only, the Rokinon/Samyang is a solid option, but if you want to record some footage with it, it will disappoint you. I will be returning the product.
