Rokinon 16mm f/2.0 overview

  • 1Description

The 16mm f/2.0 ED AS UMC CS Lens for Canon EF-S Mount from Rokinon is a manual focus wide-angle lens compatible with APS-C format DSLR digital cameras. It provides a 79.5° angle of view which translates into a 35mm format equivalency of 25.6mm. A fast maximum aperture of f/2.0 is effective in low light shooting and provides shallow depth of field. With two aspherical lens elements and one extra-low dispersion element, chromatic aberrations are minimized and sharp, color-accurate images are the result. UMC lens coating facilitates even light transmission and reduces ghosting and flare.

Wide angle focal length equivalent to 25.6mm in the 35mm format
Fast f/2.0 maximum aperture for effective low light shooting and shallow depth of field

    Rokinon 16mm f/2.0 reviews

    16mm f/2.0 ED AS UMC CS Lens for Canon EF-S Mount is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 24.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing Lens for Crop Sensor Cameras I have the Canon 35mm f/2 IS lens which is great and takes great sharp pictures. On the first picture I took with this Samyang/Rokinon 16mm f/2 lens, I was seriously blown away. I've heard that they generally make sharp, manual focus lenses, but I didn't know they'd be this sharp. The lens has a little bit of distortion but nothing serious. It has a T-stop value of about 2.5 and has a bit of a vignette until around f/4. Honestly it's sharp wide open but once you stop down to f/4, it's crazy. It made me want to get a higher megapixel camera since mine is the 18MP t5i. Can't go wrong with Rokinon lenses, and I really want to get the 85mm one. 5/5

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great affordable, wide angle lens This is a really solid wide angle lens, especially for the price. There is some image distortion that you might associate with other wide angle lenses, but i actually like that look for certain shots. It is a manual lens which might prevent some people from getting it, but since i use it primarily for video, it's a major plus for me as i can easily adapt it across camera platforms. The f/2 aperture also makes it ideal for lowlight situations. The only complaint that i have, is that it is meant only for aps-c and m4/3 sensors. It would be nice to have to option to use it on full frame sensors although that would probably increase the price significantly.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice manual focus lens I've only had this lens for 2 days, but love it. Takes a little getting used to as far as focus, but it doesn't take long to get the hang of it. Buttery movement on the focus ring, stays put. Damping is perfect. Using on a Canon 7D, very easy to use. I use live view to focus, then shoot using remote shutter release. Some folks have said that the focal markings are off, mine are almost dead on. A little soft in the corners wide open, but gets pretty good at f2.8 or f4. Using mostly for astrophotography, so wide open isn't an issue for that. Landscape color and sharpness are great with this baby, minute CA at wide open, easy to fix in post.IMHO great lens for the money. Would recommend to anyone who's not afraid to learn to use a fully manual lens.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from 'I would buy again and recommend I use this lens with my infrared modified Canon EOS-M. Given the 1.6x crop factor, this lens is an excellent solution for the wide angle needs of this camera, giving an effective focal length of 25 mm. There are no IR hot spots or image distortion. The 77mm filter size is good with no vignette. For the price this lens is an excellent choice.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic lens for astro photography After using this lens in the Mojave Desert a few weeks ago, I realized how special this Rokinon 16mm really is. I was stunned with the quality of the shots -- even with little natural light. The manual focus on this lens is very easy to use, and I would recommend Rokinon to anyone who is interested in taking shots of the Milky Way. I'm so glad I invested in this lens.
    Date published: 2016-02-28
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great IQ and affordable Sharp, inexpensive lens. Manual focus, no image stabilizer, no metadata .... not a problem for landscape or astrophotogaphy. Distortion, vignetting, and CA not too bad...Easily corrected in LR. Lens profiles are in latest LR CC upgrade 6.4. Lens hood is very loosely connected and infinity marking is off on focus ring..Bottom line great IQ and affordable

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Crazy Sharp Lens, Perfect Wide Angle Lens for APSC Sensor This lens is perfect for any crop sensor camera, being the sharpest lens I've used. It's great for landscapes and astrophotography, and it's such a bargain at the low price point. The build quality is great. I'm happily surprised at how good it is, with this being my first Samyang/Rokinon lens. I have a t5i, I sorta wish I had an 80d or something with a bigger viewfinder so it'd be easier to manually focus. Granted you can just use liveview, but with such a wide lens you can just stop it down a bunch. The focus ring is nicely damped. The lens hood sorta slides on which I'm not crazy about but at least it works and they include it for free unlike Canon.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product for me. I have had a chance to use my new lens several times now on night-time landscape and Milky Way photography, and I am well pleased. It is easy to use, and costs so much less than an automatic lens of similar quality. I would not use the automatic features anyway. The photo quality is excellent. The f 2.0 gives me tremendous latitude shooting, as I do, in the dark. I use it with the Canon mount with my Canon 60 da. For me, this is a great deal.
