Rokinon 16mm f/2.0 overview

  • 1Description

The 16mm f/2.0 ED AS UMC CS Lens for Nikon F Mount from Rokinon is a manual focus wide-angle lens compatible with APS-C format DSLR digital cameras. It provides an 83.1° angle of view which translates into a 35mm format equivalency of 24mm. 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 24mm in the 35mm format
Fast f/2.0 maximum aperture for effective low light shooting and shallow depth of field
Aspherical and Extra-low Dispersion lens elements reduce aberrations
UMC lens coating allows even light transmission and minimizes ghosting and flare

    Rokinon 16mm f/2.0 reviews

    16mm f/2.0 ED AS UMC CS Lens for Nikon F Mount is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 19.
    Rated 3 out of 5 by from customer service follow up to my earlier review. I had an issue with this lens focus ring. Made several attempts to contact customer service , it wasnt until I gave negative review on their Facebook page that I finally got a reply. They eventually replaced my lens but when it was sent to canada I got dinged duties for a new lens because they failed to fill out proper paperwork for the return lens. Cost me an additional $$to get the lens. I am happy with the results I get but cust service is lacking.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great value! I bought this for 'astro photography' on my Nikon D7K - hoping to capture the Aurora Australis. It is sharp even wide open at f2.0, but I found that the focus markings on the barrel are not accurate. So do some testing first! This is the first non-Nikon lens I have ever bought and while it is definitely not up to Nikon build quality - at this price you can't complain!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Spectacular for milky way shots I got my first ever DSLR yesterday (a Nikon D5600), and got this lense for it. The moon was at 86% - almost full, and I had light pollution from a streetlight about 30m away. Figured I'd test out how many stars it'd be able to see with so much light pollution anyway, simply because I was too excited to wait for a dark night. Pointed the camera to the sky, and got this. Literally was going to be a test shot but it managed to get the milky way (even with the moon in the photo). Money well spent.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Street Shooters Take Note I'll keep this short and to the point: this is a fantastic lens, regardless of price. But at this price, no self-respecting street shooter should be without it. Sharp as a tack on my D7100 from f/2.8 to 11, it is on par with my other favorite lens, Nikon's suberb 24/1.8G (35mm equiv. aps-c). To tell the truth, for the kind of stuff I do--urban landscapes, abstracts, etc.--I prefer to work with the Rokinon's clear distance scale and buttery manual focus (and wider field of view). If you do urban landscapes, urban abstracts, or more traditional street photography, this is a no-brainer. One note: the first copy I received from B&H was decentered, and not just a little bit. As always, they hooked up an exchange immediately, no questions asked. Don't let this put you off, though. I went through the same process with the Nikon 24/1.8G which is twice as expensive. 24mp crop sensors are tough on WA lenses. But find a good sample of this Rokinon and watch it blow the doors off that mighty little sensor.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Outstanding value! Would definitely buy Rokinon again. I purchased this lens specifically for astro-photography. I wanted to photograph the Milky Way from my estate near Mammoth Lakes, CA where there is plenty of dark sky. I used a Nikon D7100 and the results exceeded my expectations. An outstanding lens! I also tried it on landscapes and achieved similar, outstanding results. It is now one of my favorite lenses.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Cheap Thrills for Land Lubbers I wanted to try more astrophotography shoots but didn't want to spend a fortune for a lens that would do the job. I saw a recommendation for this lens in an article on capturing the milky way. For the price this is a very nice piece of glass and is great for landscape and astrophotography. It has a nice wide aperture and wide angle making it ideal for what i was looking for in a lens. I also really like the fine adjustment of the focus. Most lenses have too sensitive of a focus making it difficult to get sharp crisp night sky pictures. I've taken some incredible pics with my Nikon D5000 and can't wait to try it out on my new D750 i just ordered. I would recommend this to anyone looking for an affordable landscape, cityscape, and astrophotography lens. It does the job and doesn't disappoint.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Lens for Time Lapse I used this lens for nighttime time lapse photography. Its wide angle is great without the fisheye distortion. Its fast enough for great exposures at an affordable price. I use it with my Nikon D3300.Example work can be seen here@

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from customer service Bought this lens less than a year ago. The focus ring is malfunctioning. Have emailed and left voice messages at rokinon customer service. No one from rokinon has returned a call or email yet . So far its been 2 days since i first contacted them. Poor service if you ask me.
