An ultra-wide prime well-suited for landscape, architecture, and astrophotography applications, the Canon RF-mount Rokinon 14mm f/2.8 pairs a sophisticated optical layout with a robust and intuitive design. Incorporating 14 elements in 10 groups, this lens utilizes a series of aspherical, low dispersion, and high refractive index elements to reduce color fringing, aberrations, and distortions for sharp, clear, and color accurate imagery. An Ultra Multi-Coating is also featured, as well as a built-in petal-shaped lens hood, to suppress lens flare and ghosting for improved contrast when working in bright, direct lighting conditions. Complementing the imaging assets, a manual focus design is employed that permits working with subjects as close as 11" away, and the metal housing is weather-sealed to permit working in inclement conditions.
- RF-Mount Lens/Full-Frame Format
- Aperture Range: f/2.8 to f/22

Rokinon 14mm f/2.8 MF Reviews
You get what you pay for!
This lens was purchased for ultra-wide landscape and astrophotography and it seems to be super sharp in the center mid area very close to the margins except corners witch can be quite soft at f2.8. but they get decent sharp at f4 and up. Overall the build quality is very good, the lens is quite heavy and the focus is very smooth. For the reduced price of $369 - this lens is really worth is price, at $499 - probably I'll look elsewhere - like Laowa. Pros: - Ultra wide prime at a decent price - f2.8 - Good overal built quality - Precise and smooth focus ring - Super sharp in most of the frame Cons: - Big and heavy - No front filter support - Soft corners at f2.8 - Non removable hood
Built like a tank
So far I've only used this in the studio. It is a sharp lens. Very quick delivery and well packed by B&H. Much appreciated. This lens was not bought to shoot quick rather to shoot carefully and with more thought then just point and shoot. The build quality seems top notch. Very smooth focus. Great lens cap. Electronics would be nice but you'll get by if you're a old school photographer that came up in the 4x5/8x10 days when you had to be very methodical.
Excellent super-wide coverage at a reasonable price
The Rokinon 14mm f/2.8 has high resolution even wide open and is very sharp corner to corner by f/4.5. Color rendition is well balanced and provides excellent contrast. It's solid and feels like a quality lens in every way. The review stating it will not work on a R series camera is obviously in not correct. I've used this lens on a R, RP and R5 with absolutely no issues. The electronic aperture control works and the camera recognizes the lens settings You do, of course need to set the camera to release shutter with no lens to allow operation with any non-Canon manual lens. The only minor negative is that you can't easily attach a filter to the front of the lens. The include, attache lens hood does provide some minimal protection to the lens however.
Value for the money
Well made with excellent image quality. Since I will be using this primarily for landscape work being manual focus is not detrimental. I look forward to using the more in the months ahead.
Excellent Build Quality
As in the title, the quality of this lens is amazing. Steel, solid and sturdy. As for the photo quality, it leaves a little to be desired but, more or less it's for landscape photos. I'd recommend just off the price alone but, mind you, it's not a zoom. 14mm Prime.
Quality lens. Great to learn o
I purchased this lens for astrophotography. It works very well with my Z5. I'm a fairly new photographer, especially with mirror less cameras, so using manual focus has been a bit of a challenge. This lens has been easy for me to learn on. I was able to take a nice photo in my backyard and see stars that were hidden due to light pollution. I used a tripod, opened the aperture and set the shutter to 15 seconds. Will be taking a trip to Shenandoah national park soon and hope to get a nice photo of the milky way. I highly recommend this lens.
Very surprised at how well this little manual lens performs.
Does exactly what I expect
I have been using Rokinon lenses for astrophotography for years and have come to expect great things out of them. Whether it is the 14mm or the 24mm I am using I don't want to end up with something I can't use at the end of a session. After moving to the new Z6 I continued using my old Rokinons and they worked just fine. But I decided I wanted to have a Z mount Rokinon and do away with the convertor. The only complaint I have is the lens is heavy. But the pictures are fantastic!
