Rokinon 85mm T1.5 Cine Overview

The Rokinon 85mm T1.5 Cine Lens for Canon EF produces a slightly telephoto angle-of-view on full-frame sensors.

The 85mm has a minimum focus distance of 3.6'. Internal focusing minimizes the effects of lens breathing, which insures a more consistent angle-of-view when adjusting focus. The lens is composed of 9 elements in 7 groups, including one aspherical element to reduce spherical aberrations. In addition, a multi-coated elements help improve light transmission.

question

Has anyone had this lens fall apart? If so, can it be repaired or better to replace?
Asked by: Amanda E.
I had the 35mm version of this lens fall apart. The internal mechanisms are plastic. There are no spare parts available for purchase and Rokinon will not do repairs on their cheaper line of lenses. I was able to open up the lens and glue the broken plastic pieces back together and it works perfectly again.

Will this work fine on a ursa mini 4k? And would it be a good choice?

This will work great with the Ursa Mini 4k EF, B&H #BLURSAM4KEF. With it being 85mm T1.5 you will have a great telephoto lens that gives you very pleasing shallow depth of field.
