Rokinon 85mm f/1.4 Reviews

Very good value for money. Rokinon 1.4/85 manual focus and manual aperture lens for full frame Sony E mount. Sharp lens wide open at f/1.4, no complaints.

I like it!

I saw the low price and pretty good reviews and tried this. I really got it for blue hour and night photography. If you have a situation where you can use the manual focus it's excellent. The 1.4 aperture is great at night esp if you are doing panoramas as the corners don't matter as much. Sharp, good color and light. I am really liking it. DOF shallow for astrophotography so you may need to do focus stacking. For night cityscapes it's fantastic.

Fantastic lens

Bought this to use for astrophotos and was not disappointed. It's a pretty small telephoto lens, but shoots perfect at night on my 70D at f2! Would definitely recommend to anyone looking for a cheaper telephoto lens

Good for astrophotography

I purchased this lens to fill a gap between my 135mm and 50mm lenses for astrophotography. I have used this lens on numerous occasions now and I am very pleased with the results. I pair this lens with a Canon T6i for wider images than I get using a 135mm, but more detail than I get using a 50mm. I step it up to f/2.8 and get round stars to the edges.

Another Great Rokinon Lens for Astrophotography

By Bob

This is the third Rokinon UMC lens I own for astrophotography having already purchased the 24mm f1.4 and the 135mm f2 from B&H. Although I cant comment on how they perform for street, landscape or portrait photography, they make excellent lenses for astro work at a friendly price tag. Users used to auto focus will be disappointed as these lenses do not offer AF, but their corner to corner sharpness along with very low coma make them almost perfect on unforgiving star images. Stop them down at least one stop and they really shine as is typical of any lens with this wide an aperture. B&H has always excelled as my go to source for everything photographic.

I've heard a lot of good reviews with Rokinon's design and performance. The moment I started testing with this new lens, I knew it had such valuable quality. It's more affordable and yet carries such a strong character
