Rokinon 35mm f/1.4 overview

  • 1Description

The Nikon F 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 52.5mm. 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.

This lens also incorporates an AE microprocessor that enables the camera to electronically confirm focus as well as permit camera-based control over exposure settings.

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 DX-sized sensors, this 52.5mm 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.
Two high refractive index elements and one aspherical element reduce chromatic aberrations in order to produce greater sharpness and clarity.
UMC coating improves light transmission and suppresses lens flare and ghosting for more contrast-rich, color-neutral images.
An AE microprocessor is incorporated within this lens' design, which enables camera-based control over exposure settings and also permits in-camera manual focus confirmation.

    Rokinon 35mm f/1.4 reviews

    35mm f/1.4 AS UMC Lens for Nikon F (AE Chip) is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 18.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Lens! For me the Focus Confirmation Chip is a necessity in a manual focus lens for taking pictures. Tho its primary purpose I bought this for is to use for video capture on the Nikon DSLRs and for that this manual focus is excellent with a nice solid and smooth rotation of the ring. It is a really sharp and fast lens that gives me great low light video. I also have the Rokinon 85mm 1.4 with a Chip and I have one body with the 35mm on it and another body with the 85mm on it and I am set for the capture of the day! I need more of these Rokinon manual primes with chips. Samyang of Korea is the maker, rebranded as Rokinon, Vivitar, Bower, and others with slight outer cosmetic changes.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Met my expectations The focus confirm chip is great because it allows aperture control automatically on my Nikon D3. I also use the lens on a Nikon FM2 and it is nice to have that manual aperture ring. I have a F to EOS mount adaptor so I've also used this lens on a Canon T3 / 1100D body for shooting stills/video. I gave the review 5 stars because it meets my expectations. The image quality and performance is amazing for the price. I don't own the Nikkor 35mm f/1.4 Ai-s so I can't compare image quality. But the price of the Rokinon is half the price of the Nikkor. I love the stiff, but smooth focus ring. The lens itself is built well and solid. The lens hood, however, is a tad flimsy and cheap plastic. For the price it is what I expected. I have a ton of 77mm filters so the fact this lens takes that threading is perfect for me when I'm shooting film and want to add a warming filter late in the afternoon.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Value, so-so build quality I use this for portraits and video. The focus ring is fat, smooth, and long, so fabulous for video. The DoF indicator is nice, and it focuses well. Do not even try to manual focus on an aps-c camera without using live view, at least not with apertures faster than 2.8. Also, the bokeh is completely out of this world. I own the Nikon trifecta (f2.8 14-24, 24-70, 70-200) and the bokeh, even at f10 is superb, uniform, and marevlous to look at. One last note, I use a 3x viewfinder add on to the lcd to focus at 1.4.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Solidly built, sharp and great value. This lens is really terrific, especially for the price. It's manual focus - which might be a dealbreaker for some - but if you can live with that, you get a lot for your dollars.Build quality is very high. The focus ring is smooth and sure. So is the aperture ring. There is no lock for minimum aperture which is slightly annoying, but livable. The included lens case is a fairly inexpensive velvet bag, but it does the job. The lens hood and front cap are a bit cheap-feeling - in high contrast to the lens itself - and are really the only disappointment. The cap would be easy to replace; the hood, a little less so.The pictures are sharp and I'm really happy with how the lens is performing, even at wide apertures.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great lens I have used this lens extensively on a full frame camera since I got it almost two months ago. It is excellent. Sharp wide open and with very pleasing bokeh (better than the Zeiss 35mm f/2). If you can live with manual focus, getting this lens vs. the much more expensive Nikon is an easy choice. The lens hood is decent (much better than what comes with the Rokinon 85mm) but the lens cap is poor. Just plan on getting a better cap (such as a Tamron).

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from amazing for the money I have used this lens on both a D3s and D800. It performs perfectly on the D3s, tack sharp at f1.4, and when it's not, it's my fault. On the D800 it's a bit hazy at 100% at f1.4, but by f2 it's excellent. I'm very happy with my purchase.
    Date published: 2012-08-27
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Lens I'll start by saying I'm very pleased with this lens. I first used the Rokinon 16mm f2.0 (not the Cine version) and loved it and this lens has surpassed that one in my opinion. Exceptionally crisp images and buttery smooth focus adjustment. The AE chip is an added bonus the 16mm did not have. This has become my default lens and I shoot with a D5500 (APS-C) with the equivalent of a 52mm focal length. I've used this lens for daytime use shooting panoramic vistas along the west coast as well as for night use capturing the stars (opening the lens to f/4 gave amazing results for capturing stars). Most recently I used this on a ski trip and, being so fast, I was please with how well action shots were captured. I highly recommend this lens to anyone looking to save a little money on a fast lens that they hope to have for all around use.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from A great bang for the buck! I was hesitant in ordering this lens because it is manual focus. However, after shooting with it for 2 weeks now, it might be my new favorite. Images are sharp even wide open at 1.4. Using a tripod helps if you have trouble manually focusing on images. The bokeh is also incredible, one of my favorite things about this lens. Great job Rokinon and looking forward to your 24mm 1.4!
