Rokinon 35mm f/2.8 AF Reviews

A Great Budget Lens!

All around a great lens! It feels a little cheap in the hands with the plastic and the lens hood is a little silly. I wish they would have included a second 49mm cap to use as I never use the hood with its 40.5mm cap/filter threads anyway. Pretty sharp in the center 80-85% of the frame Wide open at 2.8 with some pretty noticeable CA With the heavy green/magenta’s as you go the the edge of the frame. Also has a moderate (on the heavy side of moderate but not unmanageable) amount of Vignette in general (Light room does fairly well with the lens correction on this one) Would have loved to see a weather gasket on this one. I see a lot of people having problems with theirs over time but mine seems to be holding out nicely considering it’s been my “daily beater/wont cry if I drop it” lens! 10 out of 10 times would buy again for this price point!

For the money, this lens can't be beat. I'm using it for street shots and it hasn't disappointed. B&H had it on sale, which was bonus round points. Sweet little case as well, which hasn't always come with some of my other primes

Excelent for street photography

Excelent for money!

Light-weight lens that provides great quality for the price

By Ilia

Obviously this lens isn't going to beat a competitor for $2k, but for less than CAD$400 this lens provides high value for the money. The auto-focus is decently fast, pretty quite and accurate. In my experience there's been very little hunting if at all. It's also very sharp and consistent across the frame... again, it's not going to beat a GMaster for sharpness, but it's very solid. I bought this lens to have something small and light to walk around the city with and take quick shots here and there - and it's perfect for that. But I've also used it for everything from landscape to portraits and it performed well. Below I've attached a crop of a wider shot that will hopefully show up at 100% scale and you can see the details in the water, the trees, etc.

I'm using this lens with an A7 iii and it's been great. I love the size. The focus is responsive and silent. Glad I took a chance on it.

Using this for a close-up webcam view on live streams, on our Sony a6000. Really captures beautiful light and clarity, very flattering lens for faces, and lovely natural bokeh. Love it, especially for the price

A Pleasent Surprise

I purchased this lens as a small alternative to my other zooms and primes. What I got was a lens that I've used extensively for both personal and professional projects. Small, lightweight, and very capable of delivering excellent images consistently. Is it perfect? No. However, If you want a great performing lens that will stand up to the scrutiny of large 11x17 prints, take a look at this one.

question

Will like Rokinon use the lens hood that fit over a 49mm filter? I prefer not to use a 40.5mm filter attached to the front of the hood.
Asked by: Gary
It is a weird setup with the lens hood and then having to buy a 40.5mm filter. But...It could have been designed this way because the lens has such a low-profile. The hood that comes with the lens is so compact there is no chance that the hood will be picked up in the photo. On that level, the hood works because it minimizes space and the form fits the lens well. If you took off the hood the came with the lens, put on a new filter and then put a new hood on the lens, you run the risk of having the hood getting picked up on the edges of the photo. The new hood may not fit in the lens case Rokinon supplies with the lens. Food for thought.

question

Does this lens work with eye-AF on sony a7rii ?
Asked by: Zakaria
Not sure about A7RII, but eye AF works just like native Sony lenses on my A7III. If you are having issues, make sure you have a newer firmware on the lens.

question

Anyone use this with a first gen Sony A7? How is AF? I don't mind a little slow as long as it doesn't hunt around a lot.
Asked by: Andrew
I have just started to use this lens on my Sony a7r2. I went on a road trip recently shooting landscapes and had no problem with auto focus. I also tried some test shots in low light and it focused fine. It's not blazing fast but also not really slow...in between and adequate. Nice lens for the price. I'm happy so far. I shoot professionally

question

Has anyone else had a problem with the front lens hood being loose? I just received this lens and the front lens hood almost falls off.
Asked by: Matthew L.
Make sure you rotate it all the way until you hear a click/snap noise. I would suggest getting a 49mm lens cap as a permanent replacement of this poorly designed lens hood.
