Rokinon 8mm T3.8 Cine Fisheye II Overview

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.

question

Does Rokinon 8mm T3.8 Cine UMC Fisheye CS II Lens is working with full frame E mount cameras like sony alpha 7?
Asked by: Dhanish C.
The Rokinon 8mm Fisheye lens is designed for APS-C sized sensors. You could mount it on an A7, but the camera would need to be turned to its crop mode. To take advantage of the A7's full frame sensor you could look in to the Rokinon 12mm T3.1 Cine DS Fisheye Lens instead.

question

Is there any major difference between this lens and the Rokinon 8mm f/2.8 UMC Fisheye II Lens for Sony E Mount?
Asked by: Joshua
Optically they are very similar. The difference is how they are physically designed for different purposes. Therefore the 8mm T3.8 Cine UMC Fisheye CS II is for cine use (note the gears for follow focus and aperture) and the 8mm f/2.8 UMC Fisheye II Lens is for photo use. Select the lens for your primary use.

I know this lens creates a floating circular image with a full frame camera, but what would be the solution for the Bmpcc6kpro?
Asked by: Leo

Will this lens give me the classic fisheye distorted image on the Nikon D5200? If not is there a decent Lenape that will?

Yes it will. This is a fisheye lens designed specifically for cameras with an APS-C sensor like the Nikon D5200. It is a great option.
