Rokinon 8mm T/3.8 Fisheye Cine Lens for Canon
Key Features
  • Designed for DSLR Video Shooting
  • Ideal with APS-C Sensors
  • De-clicked Aperture
  • 180º Angle of View
Thanks to its smooth, de-clicked aperture and ideal focal length, the 8mm T/3.8 Fisheye Cine Lens for Canon from Rokinon is a great lens for shooting video with your DSLR camera. It is designed to shoot with APS-C image sensors, for which it provides full frame coverage, creating an expanded perspective that covers the entire frame. For DSLR's with a full frame sensor, this lens will produce pictures with a semi-circular image and close-ups will appear proportionately large for a dramatic effect. Its de-clicked aperture range runs from T/3.8 to T/22, providing a smooth, silent, jump-free transition when shooting video and its multi-layered, anti-reflective UMC coated lenses allow for clean light transmission and razor sharp images. Toothed focusing and aperture rings and bright, white numbering make controlling your image all the easier.

This lens is very useful. The cost benefit is great. Maybe is the best choice in this price range Cons: Too soft in the full aperture, about 4.2 f/stop starts to be sharper.

100% recommendable

I bought this lens a year ago. Is simply amazing. I have a macro lens and also an 18-55 mm. I always prefer the fisheye one. It has a luminance and a definition incredible. If I had the chance, I would buy it again with my eyes closed. PS.: sorry for my english. I'm a spanish girl.

En general es un lente con el que se puede realizar im�genes urbanas, paisajes, aquitectura, falta un poco de nitidez, pero resulta ser un buen objetivo.

This lens was ordered through the department I work for at a university. It is being used to capture the images needed to stitch together in panoramas to upload into our new VR campus map for the 360s. The glass is crisp, and the lens is very easy to focus and work with the t-stops. Fits and works perfectly with the crop-sensored Canon 60D I am using to capture the images.

Fun lens to have on hand.

Because I use this only occasionally, it is a great addition to my gear bag. It is a fine, low cost alternative to better lenses. Just make sure to use plenty of light because it gets a little soft in low light. That being said, I'm very happy with it, and so are my clients.
