Rokinon Expands Offerings with Full-Frame 45mm f/1.8 for Sony E


There’s an argument to be made that 45mm is even more normal that the nifty fifty, being that its field of view comes even closer to the supposed specs of human vision. Makes sense that more and more 40-something lenses are coming on the scene with the newest being the compact and affordable AF 45mm f/1.8 FE Lens from Rokinon for full-frame Sony E-mount cameras.

A simple but effective lens, the Rokinon 45mm offers a relatively fast f/1.8 maximum aperture to balance size and speed as it manages to weigh just 5.7 oz and measure 2.2" long. It uses aspherical and extra-low dispersion elements to minimize various aberrations and an Ultra Multi-Coating reduces flare and ghosting. Additionally, it can focus as close as 1.5' and has a 9-bladed circular aperture for smooth bokeh.

This is an interesting and unique addition for full-frame Sony E shooters. Are you intrigued enough to pick one up? Be sure to let us know in the Comments section, below!
