Rokinon 8mm T3.8 Cine Fisheye II Overview

The Canon EF mount Rokinon 8mm T3.8 Cine UMC Fisheye CS II Lens was developed primarily for film and video applications. The cine version of Rokinon's 8mm lens features industry-standard gearing for the focus and aperture ring, and the aperture ring has been de-clicked for smooth iris pulls. The aperture and focus scales have also been relocated to the side of the lens, where it is easier for focus pullers to read them.

This lens is compatible with APS-C-sized sensors and provides a 35mm-equivalent focal length of 12.8mm. Its 180° angle of view makes it well-suited to creative applications. The optical construction incorporates one hybrid aspherical element to reduce chromatic aberration and distortion to produce sharper imagery. Additionally, a UMC coating has been applied to lens elements to minimize lens flare and ghosting for more contrast-rich images.

180° fisheye lens is ideally suited for creative applications.
One hybrid aspherical element reduces chromatic aberrations and distortions in order to produce sharper images.
UMC coating improves light transmission and suppresses lens flare and ghosting for more contrast-rich, color-neutral images.
Geared aperture and focus rings are compatible with standard follow focuses for greater control over adjustment.
De-clicked aperture ring facilitates smooth, quiet exposure adjustments during recording.
A removable petal-type lens hood is included to help minimize flare by deflecting stray light from entering the lens.

Rokinon 8mm T3.8 Cine Fisheye II Reviews

Enjoy a super-wide, but this lens is far from sharp

By David
Rated 3 out of 5

I like a super-wide, but you're better off with the 12mm that covers the full frame. There is a lot of vignetting that needs to be cropped out. The sharpness of this lens is very marginal, which will be apparent with anything that has a lot of detail, like classical architecture. Part of the issue is the inevitable camera shake when hand holding. Squaring up architectural shots is also challenging, no fault of the lens.

Bought it for Black Magic pocket camera

Can't complain. Good quality, some distortion as expected but still looks good on blackmagic pocket camera.

Use it for photography of bands and Visio and that jazz really good lens really like the unclekt apetcher and its a really good fish eye effect for a asp-c Lens it's like using a canon 15mm 2.8 on a full frame gives it a really nice wide vue Bad things about it it take a bit to get use to Manuel apetuer and focus but is well worth it and wish the apituer went done further like 2.8 ish but is a gr8 lens

Good lens quality for the price. Relatively sharp and good for video, as it is full manual. Given the extreme fisheye look I am debating how much use I will get from it, but the product is solid.

The difference between these two lenses is the slightly more expensive CS II version has a detachable tulip style lens hood.

question

Anyone know the exact diameter of the barrel where the hood attaches? I am trying to fit this snugly in my matte box with minimal rear light leak. My matte uses screw-in adapter rings to bring lenses up to a standard 80mm for a snug fit with the hard mount of the matte box. However, the fisheye of course has no filter threads, so that system won't work with this lens. So I'm wondering how much light leak there will be...i.e., ***how much less than 80 mm is this lens at the front?? Thanks guys!
Asked by: Adam M.
Adam,The front diameter of the Rokinon 8mm T3.8 Cine Lens is 75mm. Be aware that it has an 180 degree viewing angle so it will have you matte box in the frame. I tried to use this lens once during a music performance to mess around to see what I might get and I saw my monitor and front of my rig. This was with the end of the lens slightly in front of my mounting rods. So I would have had to adjust my camera mount further up to not see anything, but I didn't have time to do all that during the performance.Nick K.

question

Can I use this lens on the Canon 6D like a normal non-cine lens?
Asked by: Kai W.
Yes you can use it like any other lens, but if you don't need the de-clicked aperture or the geared focus/iris rings, you should buy the non-cine version and save some money.
