Rokinon 85mm f/1.4 AF Overview

  • 1Description

An ideal lens for portraiture, the Sony E-mount AF 85mm f/1.4 from Rokinon is a short telephoto prime distinguished by its bright f/1.4 maximum aperture. This fast design, while benefitting its use in low light, also affords notable control over depth of field for selective focus applications. The optical design features four high refractive index elements, which help to reduce spherical aberrations and distortion in order to realize high sharpness and clarity. One extra-low dispersion element is also featured, which controls color fringing and chromatic aberrations in order to realize a high degree of clarity and color accuracy. Individual elements also feature an Ultra Multi-Coating, which suppresses flare and ghosting for greater contrast in strong lighting. Complementing the optical design is an Ultrasonic Dual Linear motor, and an internal focusing design, which offers fast and quiet autofocus performance. Additionally, a rounded nine-blade diaphragm contributes to pleasing bokeh quality.

Portrait-length prime is designed for full-frame Sony E-mount mirrorless cameras, however can also be used on APS-C models where it provides a 127.5mm equivalent focal length.
Very bright f/1.4 maximum aperture benefits working in low-light conditions and offers great control over depth of field for isolating subjects and working with selective focus.
Four high refractive index elements are used to reduce distortion and spherical aberrations for greater sharpness and accurate rendering.
One extra-low dispersion element helps to reduce color fringing and chromatic aberrations in order to realize notable color accuracy 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.

Internal focusing design maintains the overall lens length and prevents the front of the lens from rotating during use.
Rounded nine-blade diaphragm contributes to a smooth and pleasing bokeh quality.
Weather-sealed design suits working in inclement weather conditions.
Included lens hood helps to block stray light from causing flare and ghosting.

    Rokinon 85mm f/1.4 AF Reviews

    AF 85mm f/1.4 Lens for Sony E is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 3.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from 5 stars for quality , price compare to G master It is no doubt about this high quality optical Rokinon brand. This lense is perfect for my A73 fast focus , eyes focus . Bokeh is beautiful almost same as G master lense. It is a little bit getting slow focus in low light . It flared directly to sun that Gmaster do not. Overall, this is the lense you should try and have it. Highly recommended if your budget not allowed you Gmaster.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beats the Sony 85mm F1.4 GM I’ve owned the Sony 85mm GM and yes it’s a great lens, but the new Rokinon/Samyang 85mm is sharper wide open, noticeably lighter, has good contrast, and silky smooth bokeh. AF is fast and Eye AF works great. Low light AF is good as well, AF is more quiet than the Sony as well although it’s not completely silent when the room is quiet and it’s close to your ear you can hear it slightly. I haven’t seen and onion ring Bokeh at all. Really the only 2 categories where the Sony beats the Rokinon is bokeh balls being a bit more round on the inner edges of the frame and due to the 11 blade aperture the bokeh balls stay circular even when stopping down. Honestly not worth the massive price difference to me. The light weight of the Rokinon and superb image quality make this a joy to use. The VALUE with this lens is massive if you want a 1.4 85. Finally they have improved this lens when compared to their earlier AF release which were still good.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best lens for the price! Very pleased with auto focus and image quality with this lens. The only time I had an issue catching focus was with some macro flower photography where the fore and background had very little contrast. Otherwise, the detail has been on point with my other lenses (Sigma Art 50 mm F1.4, G Series 16-35 F2.8) and I have had no complaints there. Further, with any F1.4 I expect aberration but with this guy it has been more than manageable with a little lightroom magic. My main complaints come with the construction of the body itself rather than anything optics related. Im not a huge fan of the focus ring on this lens it is not nearly as smooth as I have been accustomed to using. However, that hindrance has not been a huge issue and comes down mostly to preference. Finally, I wish that there was an on lens manual / autofocus switch for easy mode switching. I find it much easier if Im already in the viewfinder to flip a switch on the side when I need to leave manual than to use the controls on my camera body itself. Again, for a mirrorless full frame lens at this price point I dont expect many extra features and I bought this lens knowing that this would be the case. Overall, very impressed with this lens - there really is not a comparable full frame mirrorless E-mount 85 mm on the market right now. The lenses that are a little bit better are running in the $1100 range and higher so this at $700 was a no brainer for me!

    I still can't decide if I should get this Samyang ...

    I still can't decide if I should get this Samyang or Sony 85mm 1.8 ?
    Asked by: Lukasz
    I struggled with the same thing. I like the rendering at 1.4 but not enough to splurge for the GM. I gave this a try and don't regret it for a moment. If you are looking for an 85 for heavy video work, go with the Sony 1.8 ... it's quieter and will focus a bit faster. That said, this is still very quick and the rendering and detail are terrific. YMMV, but the Rokinon has been a great decision for me.
