For the price, the quality of these cine lenses is great. I use a set of different focal lengths and they have great picture. If you are wide open they can be a little soft, but stop it at T2 or up and its sharp

Beautiful image

Well done with this little guy. Much cheaper option for a cinema lens. I would buy this again.

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.
