Rokinon RKHD8MV-NEX overview

  • 1Description

The Sony E 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 12mm. 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 RKHD8MV-NEX reviews

    8mm T3.8 Cine UMC Fisheye CS II Lens for Sony E Mount is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 5.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Best & Most Affordable Fisheye Lens. PERIOD I needed a specialty lens for some creative video work recently. I looked at this and the Laowa 15mm and also the Irix Firefly lenses. Why did I pick the Rokinon? Because Rokinon makes great lenses at a better price point. Additionally, the look that I needed for this instance didn't require all of the other bells and whistles. I'm only using this lens for those shots for a specific effect. The Rokinon 8mm is a fisheye lens that doesn't show the barrel either. That's what I liked most. It is a nice and more than decently sharp for what I needed. If you need that wide look without breaking the bank, the Rokinon 8mm is the one.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best fisheye for APS-C cameras! I shoot tons of skateboarding and have owned a handful of different fisheyes for all sorts of cameras over the last 10 years or so. I recently purchased this lens to use with the Sony A7s (in APS-C mode) for shooting video and I could not be happier. This is definitely THE BEST fisheye I have ever owned. Not only does it cover the full frame corner to corner (no vignetting), but it manages to fit a wider angle of view than I have ever had with a full-frame fisheye before. Also, the de-clicked aperture is a must for shooting video and comes extremely handy while going from shade to sun or vise versa. The lens is nice and sharp in the center and only softens a little bit at the edges, but that is not a surprise with a fisheye this wide. The last benefit for me is having the removable lens hood. Many fisheyes have a hard-mounted hood, which if broken, cannot be easily replaced. This one can. Buy one. Buy one now!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great reliable affordable lens I shoot a lot of documentaries. I travel overseas and shoot in touch locations. This fish eye gives great energetic images without breaking the bank. It is affordable enough that I am willing to take a few extra risks that I'd maybe be more cautious about were it a lens costing 2 or three times as much.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Beware there are lemons! I purchased 4 of these lenses for a VR 360 shoot. The 4 lens setup worked, but it turned out that one of the four lenses flared with vertical streaks where the other three lenses did not.
