Rokinon 24mm f/2.8 overview

  • 1Description

Impressively compact, the AF 24mm f/2.8 FE from Rokinon is a slim wide-angle prime designed for full-frame Sony E-mount mirrorless cameras. Its wide field of view is ideal for landscape and street photography, among other general applications, and the lightweight design is well-suited to its use as a travel or everyday lens. The optical design incorporates a trio of aspherical elements and a pair of high refractive index elements 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 36mm 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.
Three aspherical elements and two high refractive index elements 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.
Internal focusing design maintains the overall lens length and prevents the front of the lens from rotating during use.
Seven-blade diaphragm contributes to a smooth and pleasing bokeh quality.
Included lens hood helps to block stray light from causing flare and ghosting.

    Rokinon 24mm f/2.8 reviews

    AF 24mm f/2.8 FE Lens for Sony E is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 4.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love It! Bought this for my A7s as a do-all lens. Trying to keep the camera light and small so I am more inclined to bring it along. This little lens is amazing. Super sharp and auto focus is lightning fast. It does have a natural vignette (darkening around the edges) when shooting wide open. If you close down a bit it goes away (5.6/8). So far I am very happy with this lens after a few weeks of owning it. Hopefully they make more focal lengths.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good but not great lens The lens was tested on a Sony A7r3. Sharpness was generally good and weakest at the corners at F2.8. Although it is significantly less sharp than the Zeiss Batis 25mm F2.0 lens, it is far lighter, more compact and less expensive. It's weakest aspect is inconsistent auto focusing in low light situations. In such situations manual focusing provided sharper results more times than I would have liked. Auto focusing seemed to be much better in bright light.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from SWEET LITTLE LENS! If you're looking for an AF, native mount, 24 or 25 prime for your full-frame Sony, choices have been slim. This is a wonderful alternative to the massive 25mm Zeiss Batis, at less than 1/3 the price. I purchased one of the first that B&H had in stock, and was worried about early production issues; my fears were groundless! Wide open, and across the frame, this lens is sharp. As sharp as the Zeiss? Probably not, but plenty sharp for most any application I can imagine. Distortion is very minimal for a short focal length lens, and, though there is about 1 stop worth of vignetting in the corners wide open, it is essentially gone by f/5.6. Rokinon seems to have addressed the slow and noisy autofocus issues that were present in their 35/2.8 AF lens. This lens is fast and ALMOST silent, but the sound might still be an issue for video shooters. More of an issue might be the manual focus: although the focus ring is very smooth and well damped, any extra pressure when turning the ring causes the ring to bind. Even a moderate squeeze can cause it to seize. I do have doubts about the solidity of the lens' construction, which otherwise seems fine (the body is plastic, but what isn't these days...). I suppose this is a trade-off for the amazingly light weight and compactness of this lens. It is truly tiny, and makes for a wonderful package on the Sony a7. It also balances beautifully on my a6000, with the advantage on that camera of using the "sweet spot" at the center of the full-frame circle. Having the 36mm focal length equivalent on the crop sensor makes it a great walking-around lens. One additional nicety is that the provided lens hood has the same bayonet mount as that of the AF 35/2.8 Rokinon,. The hood for that lens is a bad joke, so you can swap it out between them if you have both lenses. This would have been five stars, but for the manual focusing concerns. If you only use the lens in autofocus, it's not a worry.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Light but not VERY Sharp Comparing this lens to the Sony 24-105 it's less sharp and has less pop. However, it is wider than the 24 mm setting on the 24-105 and is amazingly small and light. I will experiment more.
