Rokinon 85mm f/1.4 overview

  • 1Description

An ideal portrait-length prime, the Nikon F mount 85mm f/1.4 AS IF UMC from Rokinon pairs a bright, fast f/1.4 maximum aperture with a short-telephoto focal length to suit portraiture and other applications where shallow depth of field is desired. This manual focus lens incorporates one hybrid aspherical element to control chromatic aberrations for increased clarity and even sharpness and illumination. An Ultra Multi-Coating has also been applied to lens elements to reduce lens flare and ghosting for increased contrast and color neutrality. This lens is also characterized by an internal focusing design, which maintains the overall length during use, as well as an 8-blade rounded diaphragm for a smooth bokeh quality.

This 85mm f/1.4 lens features a Nikon F mount, and is compatible with FX sensors or DX sensors, where it will provide a 127.5mm equivalent focal length.
A fast f/1.4 maximum aperture benefits working in difficult lighting conditions and also enables extensive control over your focus position for shallow depth of field shooting.
One hybrid aspherical element helps to control chromatic aberrations and distortions for increased clarity and sharpness.
An Ultra Multi-Coating has been applied to lens elements to reduce lens flare and ghosting for increased contrast and color fidelity.
This manual focus lens features an internal focus design to maintain the overall lens length during use and the front filter mount does not rotate when focusing to better enable working with polarizers, graduated ND, and other filter types that require precise positioning.
A rounded eight-blade diaphragm contributes to a pleasing out-of-focus quality when using selective focus or shallow depth of field techniques.
This Nikon F mount version of this lens features a chip to relay focus confirmation, use of auto-exposure modes, and EXIF data between the lens and camera.

    Rokinon 85mm f/1.4 reviews

    85mm f/1.4 AS IF UMC Lens for Nikon F with AE Chip is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 85.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great portrait Lens - recommended I've been using this lens on my D90 for portrait photography, primarily at F1.4-F2.8, so fairly wide open. I find it easy enough to focus using my eye with a little backup from the focus confirmation dot that D90's have built in, and love that it's a MF lens with automatic aperture control which lets me use it in all modes on my D90 (still primarily A or M for me). I used it at a wedding this weekend and took around 500 shots and really loved the background killing power of the wide aperture, and the clarity of the lens when the focus is right. It did really well for the indoor ceremony, and I definitely will be using it for my portraits from now on.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Whoa sharp!!! If you have time with your subjects this is the best investment out there. I previously owned the Nikkor 85mm 1.4 af-d (purchased new, Nikon USA) - it may have needed calibrated but the images at 1.4 never even came close to the ooooomph and resolution of this ninja. Probably sharper than you need to be wide open - f2 is pretty much Captain Insano you are able to see every pore wowsa. Great with the D700 and DK-17m 1.2x viewfinder. MAKE SURE YOU USE THE HOOD. Just leave the thing on there - contra light kills some contrast. These krafty koreans have some nice gear. Check photozone for the review on the new Rokinon 35mm 1.4 also - likely my next mf lens...

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Most excellent portrait lens I ordered this lens specifically to shoot portraits. The first shots I took were amazing. Smooth Bokeh and really good in low light just as advertised. I use the Nikon D5000 and with the focus and metering chip, I've had no issues at all with focus or exposure. In a controlled portrait setting, I can expect superior results with this lens. I'd of course be less inclined to chase my 2 year granddaughter with it, but my first shots of her were splendid nonetheless. For under $300.00 vs. $1700.00 for the Nikon equivalent, this deal simply can't be passed up. All the concerns I had about not being able to manually focus this fast prime turned out to be unfounded. If you need a portrait lens, this one simply must be seen to be believed.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic Bargin If you're like me you're very unlikely to buy a lens this inexpensive; after all, the Nikon version costs about $1.8K while this is $ we've all learned you don't get something for nothing, well $ is not nothing but compared to $1,800 is close. This lens is one of the rare exceptions in life and a definite bargain. When I opened the box I wasn't sure what to expect, but as soon as I felt it and rotated the focus ring I was instantly excited. My first test shots were at 1.4 in room light of my Boxer and what I saw in the file was detail and sharpness I rarely see with my fast Nikon primes wide open. I decided to buy the Rokinon 35mm f/1.4 lens. On D3 bodies focus is a breeze given the viewfinder's focus indicator. Thrilled with the purchase.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Correction to previous review When I mentioned in my previous review that, despite the chip, Nikon D80 would not meter through this lens, I was wrong. I simply did not attach the lens correctly. Once I have done that, everything meters beautifully. There is one more comment I would like to make. Wide open, the lens produces a very visible deep purple fringing on anything light-againt-dark in an area of focus (out of focus areas are fine at any f/stop). This fringing decreases with each consequent stop and disappears eventually. Other than that, I believe this lens is a very good investment of resources. I am keeping it.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from So much lens, so little money! Ive used this lens for portraits, and also for landscapes, pet shots, even closeups. It begs to be used wide open, as it performs just as well or better than stopped down to middle aperatures. Yes, it has a fair bit of out-of-focus chromatic aberration, but it's not objectionable. The lens appears very well built, and should last. For 90% of any conceivable uses, it's a match for the expensive f1.4 85mm lenses. It's a joy to focus, as with that shallow depth of field, it snaps in and out in a dramatic fashion. There's an added bonus with this lens - skill! I remember now the joy of manual focussing - it's what engaged photography is all about. I look forward to trying it for videography - I just need to hire a focus puller!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great lens, great features, and an exceptional price I wanted to get a prime portrait lens but simply could not afford the Nikon lenses for my D7000. When I saw the Rokinon 85 mmf/1.4 with the AE chip on sale, I had a hard time saying no to this lens after reading the excellent reviews online.First, the construction is solid and offers metal construction in a market full of plastic lenses. The AE chip makes focus and exposure a simple matter. Bokeh is beautiful at f/1.4 and color clarity is as good as I've seen on lenses many times the price. If I had to criticize anything, it would have to be the hood which is relatively flimsy and tends to loosen, but you have to be real picky if that would keep you from considering this lens.In summary, do not be afraid to get this lens. You won't be disappointed

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good lens for the price Knowing what I have been looking through reviews now when I bought this lens I may say that this is fairly good lens. For anyone who did not use this type of 1.4 lens previously, will need a period of adaptation.I Must say that it is very hard to focus although it has a chip and AF focus confirmation,I find my self using the eye on the subject method working best for me. Soft at 1.4 much much better at 1.8 and much easier to focus. Using it with moving subject is useless , but the bokeh for still portraits is so so smooth. Personaly I think that Nikkor 1.8 is better choice as you will not loose frames due to lack of AF on Rokinon. Summary: With a bit more sharpenning you will get some great results
