Rokinon 8mm f/3.5 overview

  • 1Description

The 8mm f/3.5 Fisheye Lens with Removable Hood for Nikon from Rokinon gives you a 180º view with dramatic, exaggerated perspective when used with an APS-C camera, or a powerful circular image floating in the frame when used with a full frame digital camera or 35mm film camera. With hybrid aspherical elements and multi-layer coating, you will produce sharply defined images with a minimum of flare and ghosting. The 8mm lens focuses as close as 12" (30.48cm) from the lens. This version of the 8mm f/3.8 Fisheye lens comes with a removable lens hood that will offer glare reduction and lens protection, but can be removed to offer an increased and unobstructed angle of view when shooting with full frame digital or 35mm cameras. 

Note: Produces a circular, vignette image on full-frame sensors or 35mm film

    Rokinon 8mm f/3.5 reviews

    8mm f/3.5 HD Fisheye Lens with Removable Hood for Nikon is rated 4.2 out of 5 by 25.
    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good lens for the price The Rokinon 8mm lens is pretty decent for the price. It doesn't have that pro feel - made mostly of plastic. It fills the frame on an APS-C camera, but produces a circular image on a full-frame camera. On a Nikon full-frame camera, it works well when the camera is set to shoot in DX format, otherwise significant cropping is necessary. I found significant purple fringing in the extreme corners, but it's easily cropped. Manual focus isn't an issue - just focus at 1.5 feet and shoot at f8 - depth of field will be about 1 foot to infinity. For the money, it's an excellent lens for the limited times you'll be using it.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Worth the money Packaging is cheezy, but the lens feels and works great so far. The focus is smooth and well dampened. And the focus confirm chip works well and was a nice surprise since I didn't see it mentioned in the description. Focusing is still tuff since you can't see any detail through the viewfinder to distinguish if you are in focus or not. So I rely on the confirm chip heavily. This is my first 3rd party lens and I was hesitant at first. But since this is a novelty lens and distortion just enhances the look, I figured I couldn't go wrong. I'd buy this again and recommend it to a friend.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Cheap Lens I Have This is an outstanding lens for its price. Please understand that it IS a high-distortion fisheye lens that introduces curvature into each image. I use it on my APS-C Nikon 7000 and Nikon 5100 as a supplemental lens on all assignments and landscapes. It is as sharp as expected, mates well with the cameras, does not require manual overrides for most photos, and is fun. The key word is supplemental. Always have your normal lens(es), but learn how to use this and you will literally broaden your vistas. I am thankful that I can have a real, quality, useful specialized lens for just a little more than the silly cheap plastic toys that create fuzzed photos. This is an expansion of your skills, not allowing you to hide behind intended bad focus. (smile)

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from A fine lens for seeing the world differently The lens gives a distinctive look to the images. It can produce a standard landscape image as well as the classic top and bottom bends associated with a fisheye lens. The sun when caught at the right angle or when piercing through a tree appears as a radiating star. Even without a polarizing filter blue skies are the norm. You really need to get up close to your main subject, that is to say within inches. Holding the camera low to the ground or elevated above your head is an approach you might try. Overall I have been very satisfied with the quality of the images the lens produces and btw it's fun to experiment with the lens on all kinds of subjects.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from 'HD' fisheye at budget price Stepping up to full frame camera sensor has ment I have gone out looking for replacements for some of my most used gear. I own an older Sigma 8mm fisheye used on APS-C Nikon bodies for QT virtual tours and 360 panoramas. The larger image circle of the Rokinon gives a similar image on a Full Frame camera compared to the Sigma on the crop sensor. It is clearly sharper away from the center and has less CA, compared to the Sigma, and its distortion seems to be a bit different. It does however have a larger blue circle at the edge of the image circle. The Rokinon doesn't have DOF scales like the Sigma, Nor does it have the Autofocus or built quite as well.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Sharp lens This is review is for Rokinon 8mm/3.5 Nikon mount with build-in AE chip. It is a sharp lens after f/5.6 although edges are little softer than the center. I set the lens between 1 to 1.5 meter and f-stop f/5.6 to f/8 and get everywhere in focus. I set the aperture ring on Nikon D7100 and D80 to f/22 and the cameras could be used in A or P mode and I get perfect exposure in both cameras. Chromatic aberrations are less than Tokina 11-16/2.8 I also own which can be corrected by software. I didn’t give 5 stars because the first copy was de-centered and left side was slightly out focus.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Severe ghosting at apertures wider than f/8 I had high hopes for this lens based upon reviews, but I can only say that I have never used a worse lens than this one. At apertures wider than f8 there is SEVERE ghosting - almost to the point of it looking like an image where the shutter speed was too slow to freeze the subject's movement - yet my tests were of a stationary object and shot on a tripod.Perhaps I just got a defective lens, but if this in indicative of its performance then it is almost worthless.Guess I'll bite the bullet and buy a Nikon or Sigma - even though my work rarely requires a lens this wide. Test were shot with a Nikon D810.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great for serious work and for fun! This is the first fisheye lens I own, and the second one I've used; first one is the sigma 10mm f/2.8 fisheye. And I must say: this Rokinon HD version performs really good in overall conditions for an accesible price compared to other options. So far, I,ve used it for indoor-outdoor-night photography with/without external flash, some family portrait, group portrait and some landscape by day, and I love the projected perspective compared to other lenses (not-so-squished edges like the others), the almost infinite DOF, the removable hood (tried the lens on an F2 film camera without hood and it's almost a complete circular fisheye!), the sturdy feeling of the focus/aperture ring and lens itself, the lens weight and the pictures that creates. Concerning the optics: it is acceptably sharp and ghosts and flares are low. However, the reason I gave this item 4 stars is because of the very stiff mounting, the persistent chromatic aberration at all apertures (not so strong but still there), and because of the slight, soft focus effect (or loss of contrast?) when stopped from f/3.5 to f/5.6, no matter the focus distance (while this is inconvenient in many situations, it can be interesting to use artistically). If you want a fisheye lens for fun or for professional work but don't want to spend lots of money, this is a perfect choice (or the other variations from the same company that makes them); even if used sparingly, being a special purpose lens, you'll not regret buying it.
