A desirable telephoto for Micro Four Thirds-mount mirrorless cameras, the 85mm f/1.8 Lens from Rokinon pairs a sleek form factor with a bright f/1.8 maximum aperture for depth of field control and greater versatility in difficult lighting conditions. The optical design features one extra-low dispersion element, which reduces chromatic aberrations and color fringing, and one high refractive index element to control spherical aberrations for improved sharpness.

Telephoto prime is designed for Micro Four Thirds mirrorless cameras and provides a 170mm equivalent focal length.
Bright f/1.8 maximum aperture suits working in difficult lighting conditions and also affords extensive control over depth of field for isolating subjects and working with selective focus techniques.
One extra-low dispersion element is used to reduce color fringing and chromatic aberrations in order to produce imagery with a high degree of clarity and color fidelity.
A high refractive index element is used to control spherical aberrations and distortions in order to realize higher sharpness and accurate rendering.
An Ultra Multi-Coating has been applied to all lens elements in order to suppress lens flare and ghosting for increased contrast and color accuracy.
This manual focus lens has a non-rotating 62mm front filter mount to better enable the use of polarizing, graduated ND, and other filter types that require precise positioning.
Rounded nine-blade diaphragm contributes to a pleasing out-of-focus quality when using selective focus or shallow depth of field techniques.

Can this work on panasonic G7 or Gx85?
Asked by: davon
Yes, the Rokinon 85mm f/1.8 Lens for Micro Four Thirds would be compatible for use on the Panasonic Lumix DMC-G7 and the Panasonic Lumix DMC-GX85 Mirrorless Micro Four Thirds Digital Camera. Do note that the Rokinon 85mm f/1.8 Lens for Micro Four Thirds is a fully manual lens, and you would have to focus the lens manually and adjust the aperture using the aperture ring built onto the lens, not via the control dial on your camera.

The Blackmagic Cinema Camera 2.5K has a crop factor of 2.28X. This would be the equivalent of a 193.8mm after that crop factor.

Is this lens designed to be native mount on EF-M or is it simply an adapted version with a large flange distance. The pics look like they are of an EF version so maybe the item is the EF version with a simple spacer installed?
Asked by: Paul
Yes, its designed as a native M lens (APS-C, really, with the M mount). The thing is tiny compared to Samyang/Rokinon full frame 85mm lenses.

Asked by: Adrian
An 85mm is going to give you a tighter field of view. It would limit how much you could get in a single shot. Generally you will want something with a wider field of view.
