Rokinon 16mm f/2.0 overview

  • 1Description

The 16mm f/2.0 ED AS UMC CS Lens for Sony E Mount from Rokinon is a manual focus wide-angle lens compatible with APS-C format mirrorless 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 flares.

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 flares

    Rokinon 16mm f/2.0 reviews

    16mm f/2.0 ED AS UMC CS Lens for Sony E Mount is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 4.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Impressive! I received this lens today, and I'm very pleased I bought it. Right from when I opened the package, I was impressed by how solid feeling the lens was, and as soon as I tried the focus ring, I noticed that it was even smoother than I had imagined. I red it in reviews, but in person, it's even better. The body of the lens is made of metal, and it feels like it's going to last. The lens is very big, too. The only thing that's not as nice is the lens hood, because it's too loose. Oh, and the rear cap is a little bit annoying to remove, but I switched it for one made by Sony. From what I can see optically, the lens is very sharp, even at f/2, which is really great since I bought the lens for using it at f/2 in the first place. I have no problems whatsoever with its performance, besides a little bit of vignetting, but for me it's not too big of a deal. I also looked for coma and didn't see much of it, even at f/2, and I checked if the lens was decentered and it's not, so I'm really happy. The distortion is not bad at all, either, and I haven't checked for chromatic aberrations, but I red online that it does a good job of keeping them down, so I'll just trust the reviews for now. In usage, the manual focus works well. It's not easy to always nail it exactly when you want, but if you have time to use the focus magnification, it's no problem, and the focus peaking of the A6000 works well enough that I got most shots in focus with it. Oh, and the aperture ring feels really nice as well, the clicks are very solid feeling. One of the things that surprised me the most is just how close that lens can focus from something. On the box, it says it can focus 8 away from its subject, and I guess it must mean 8 away from the sensor, because I can get the end of the lens 1-2 inches away from something and still have it in focus. Very impressive, and the level of detail it gives is excellent. I'm really looking forward to use it for nightscapes, but I'll have to wait because it's raining. I'm sure it'll be a great lens for that, since already at f/2 the image quality is very decent and it's such a wide angle. And lastly, I know this lens doesn't have autofocus or OSS. But it's no big deal. The angle is so wide that even at fairly slow shutter speeds, you can get sharp shots (I got sharp shots at 1/4 of a second, today), and using manual focus really isn't bad, although someone taking pictures of moving subject would have to practice quite a bit to use a manual focusing lens for it. In any case, I'm glad they didn't add either one, because the lens would have been even bigger, heavier and more expensive. Samyang/Rokinon did a very good job with this lens. Thanks a lot to their team.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent budget lens! I purchased this lens for landscape photography with my Sony A6000 primarily. For my first manual lens, it was easy to get accustomed to. The focus ring is smooth, the aperture ring is stout, and the overall build quality feels really great. The best part of the lens is definitely the image quality. For the price, can you get any sharper? I also use this lens for action shots in mountain biking and it does really well for that as well.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Stunning images - zero electronics! First, the cons. This lens has absolutely no electronics in it so I had to go in the menu of my A6300 and enable 'Release without lens'. The other effect is the MF assist zoom doesn't work since the camera cannot detect when you're adjusting the focus. Finally, for a 16mm lens, it's quite heavy. The Sigma 16mm with F/1.4 is actually lighter. Now, the pros. Even with the aperture set to F/2, the image is very sharp from center to corners. There is absolutely no slack in the focus adjustment ring and the aperture ring snaps to all standard values between 2 and 22 even if they weren't printed on the ring. Very inexpensive for what you get. The specs says the minimum focus distance is 20cm but I was really able to focus as close as 10cm to get amazing macro shots.
