Rokinon 35mm f/1.4 Overview

The Canon EF mount Rokinon 35mm f/1.4 AS UMC Lens is a prime standard wide-angle lens designed for both full-frame and APS-C sized sensors; when used with an APS-C sensor the 35mm-equivalent focal length is 56mm. It is well-suited to working in a variety of situations ranging from landscape to portraiture. Its fast f/1.4 maximum aperture is further beneficial to working in low-light conditions and for greater control over selective focus and shallow depth of field effects.

Two high refractive index elements and one aspherical element have been incorporated into the optical design to minimize chromatic aberrations in order to produce sharper images. A UMC coating has also been applied to lens elements to reduce surface reflections and prevent lens flare and ghosting for improved light transmission and more contrast-rich imagery.

When used with full-frame image sensors, this lens' wide-angle perspective is well-suited to use in a broad array of conditions. When used with APS-C-sized sensors, this 56mm equivalent standard prime lens provides a similar field of view to normal vision.
Fast f/1.4 maximum aperture benefits working in low-light conditions and provides greater control over focus placement for shallow depth of field applications.

Rokinon 35mm f/1.4 Reviews

So far, so good

By George

I purchased this lens less than a month ago and haven't used it in the field yet (ruggedness question) which is the reason for only 4 stars. In indoor tests, however, it rates a big 5 stars. Build is good, feel is good--really smooth focusing even with one finger as others have stated. Enables very precise manual focusing since focus ring rotates through almost 180 stop-to-stop; stops are solid, not mushy. And it has a depth of field scale. The lens is on the heavy side for a prime, however. This is due to the amount of glass in it--12 elements in 10 groups. That likely accounts for its truly outstanding performance. It is a terrific buy for the price, especially for an f/1.4. Sharp through the entire exposure range, almost can't tell the difference wide open to f/22. Bokeh is very good. I also don't see the softness at the corners that some have remarked about. Exposure can be set by the camera thanks to the AE chip. Being a manual focus lens, it doesn't auto-focus but it does confirm focus in the viewfinder (and in live view). The images below were taken using a Nikon D810; shutter was 1/200s, ISO 800, lighting was via two 45 Impact white umbrellas, with a Nikon SB-900 flash in one and a Nikon SB-700 in the other. Distance to the subject (a potted plant) was approx. 3 feet and focus was on the center of the flower. Exposures were taken at f/1.4, f/8, and f/22. Exposure was boosted in post for the f/8 and the f/22 shots, along with some noise reduction. Depth of field is very shallow but the focus point is there if you look for it.

Good first prime lens

I'm only starting my journey in learning photography, but so far I'm quite happy with my choice of this lens to be my first (and for a while, my only) lens. One of my main motivations for delving into photography is to start doing astrophotography, and this f/1.4 lens lets in a lot of light, making it possible to get decent exposures using exposures of only a half dozen seconds or so. I chose this lens because of, the fast f/1.4 aperture, and I chose 35mm because it should allow me to get decently wide views of the sky while also being somewhat versatile in everyday photography than an even shorter focal length lens. The bokeh is also, unsurprisingly, excellent. I don't have enough experience to say how sharp the lens is or anything, but I've been pretty happy with the photos I've taken so far.

Rokinon 35 f/1.4 Lens

By Robert

I bought this lens for only one purpose, to photograph the night sky. I use it along with the Rokinon 14mm f/2.8. This is not a walk-around lens for spontaneous shooting. It is very sharp and has great bokeh but is heavy and is difficult to use as a standard lens. For photographing the night sky, it is really easy to set the focus to infinity, set the f-stops, shutter and take a photograph.

YES YES YES!!! GOTTA HAVE IT!!!

It is an art lens but it gives some unique perspectives to the wedding photographer that I am and I like it. Canon hit it out of the ballpark with this winner!!!

Adapter problems

By Mike
Rated 2 out of 5
Date: 2020-11-12

Full disclosure, I'm used this lens adapted to the Panasonic S1 via the Sigma MC-21 Ef-L. The first issue was that with this setup, pressing the shutter/record buttons closed the iris a full stop. Probably not Rokinons fault but I'll still need to return this lens. I also was unable to make any stop increments above 2.8. I could set it to 4, 3.5, 3.2, 2.8 but any wider and the lens would open completely. I was disappointed at the sharpness wide open. I know you're going to lose sharpness at f/1.4 but I didn't expect it to drop off a cliff. I checked DXOMark and they found the similar results in their sharpness tests. Having 1.4 felt like an experimental feature added to a lens that was only meant to be 2.8. Others have had much better luck but be careful when you get a lens from Rokinon. I won't return to them any time soon.

No, it would not. The Rokinon 35mm f/1.4 AS UMC Lens for Canon EF (AE Chip), B&H # RO3514CAE, would be required for use if autoexposure is needed.

question

This lens is listed as an 35mm but also states 56mm in the information; what is the deal??
Asked by: WG D.
It's a 35mm lens, period. It probably also says 56mm since that's the equivalent on a crop sensor (x1.6). I've owned this lens for a year now and it's great for video work, very crisp footage with great bokeh.

Any information on using Infared filters, such as the Singh-Ray IR 830 & 690 filters with the Rokinon 35mm F/1.4 on the Canon R5 or 5D Mark 4?
Asked by: Gary
Yes, you can use an IR filter like the Singh-Ray IR 830 & 690 filter on the Rokinon 35mm f/1.4 AS UMC Lens for Canon EF with most digital cameras like the Canon R5 and 5d Mark IV. You will need to manual focus and play around with exposure.

How does this lens do shooting into the sun? Considering it for a go-to landscape lens, including panos and I love to shoot backlit, but concerned about CA and bad flaring. Has anyone pushed it in these areas?
Asked by: Sky
The consensus regarding this lens is that it is very sharp even at f/1.4, has very good build quality, has minimal CA and vignetting, has some flaring and for the price, it is a steal.

Thinking of doing some astrophotography, and have a Nikon D3300, will this lens work for me?

This would not be ideal. 35mm on your D3300 wouldn't be wide enough for astro skies. I would recommend something like this instead. https://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/859173-REG/Samyang_SY14MAE_N_14mm_f_2_8_Super_Wide.html
