Ridiculously Large Lens! I was shocked at the size and weight of this lens, but I suppose to get f1.4 for a 85mm lens you have got to have a lot of glass and metal.Also, this is not a native Micro Four Thirds lens. You can see the adapter they have attached between the aperture ring and the camera mount (that isn't shown in any of the Amazon product photos). The lens can probably cover a full frame sensor when adapted to a full frame camera, which explains its size.If I'd known the lens was this large and heavy I might have opted for a legacy OM or Konica lens on an adapter, which would probably have been more compact, but this modern lens may out-perform that older glass.The lens bag is about as cheap as a lens bag could be. I'll probably use one of my better bags for this lens.Some people have said the lens hood is cheap and doesn't connect securely, but I suspect those folks didn't turn the hood until it clicked. It is solid after the click.I've knocked off a star because of the cheap bag and the product photos not showing the actual complete product.I've only taken a few photos with it so far, but I like how it renders a lot. I'm looking forward to using it more very soon! 4I was able to create remarkable footage with a great shallow depth of field look almost without trying Disclaimer: Mine had a scuffed lens, but WOW...I give this 4 stars because the one I purchased from Amazon Warehouse (previously opened) had scuffs on the lens. They were in typical Amazon style wonderful about accepting the return. What a pleasure to work with Amazon... but I digress.Back to the review at hand. The Rokinon Cine lens was amazing (if you don't take the scuff into account). I was able to create remarkable footage with a great shallow depth of field look almost without trying.I wasn't sure if I was going to like the manual lens... to be honest, it can be a little intimidating.But this thing was a joy. It was effortless to focus and it was nothing short of enlightening to see how the changes in light entering the lens were coupled to the movement of the aperture ring. I don't think I'd ever felt more in command of my camera than when I was able to take fine grain control over the light entering the lens. I learned more with a couple of twists of that ring than I had in volumes of reading.I didn't hold on to this long enough to be able to run it through all of its paces and give it 5 stars. I will be replacing this Rokinon 85mm with another. I'm fairly certain it warrants 5 stars in terms of overall appearance, value, and fine grained control over the image.It should say a lot that I'm going to replace the scuffed one with the exact same model.ThanksJoe (Creatively.Me) 4The BokehMon! This monster of a lens looks great and feels really nice and solid in your hand.It also looks amazing on the camera (Sony A6000).The photos/Bokeh are amazing!Highly recommended! 5Great prime lens, beautiful shots & video on my GH4 This was one of the first lenses that I purchased for my Panasonic GH4 when I moved to micro 4/3rds and I have been very pleased with my purchase. You can get some beautiful shots with this lens and it allows for a brilliant depth of field. I have used it for interviews and action shots in a music video, along with some photography. It does have a slight fog to the image if you do not have the right settings, even if the image appears well lit and in focus, especially when using it for photography. It can be difficult to find the right focal point if you are shooting from a distance but with some trial and error you can get the great shots that you are looking for.I've attached a screenshot from an indoor interview I shot with this lens from about 10-12ft away from the subject using only natural lighting from 2 windows & 2 photographs I took of a herring from about 6-8ft away at different focal settings. I've also included a photo of a duck to show the fog effect I mentioned. With a little practice you can learn how to reduce this easily.For the price this is a great lens to add to your collection. It is a heavier, larger lens but the shots you can get with it make it worth the weight. For the price it's a great deal. 4I want to love this lens: Needs practice, patience, and shift your camera center focus far left. I really want to love this lens. It is well built, heavy, with smooth focus and aperture rings and feels like good quality glass. When you dial in the lens, use at F 5.6 or more it produces nice results. However I found you really need to test and experiment with it before any important photo shoots or events.Pros: Feels hearty, nice quality glass, with smooth focus and aperture rings, and it takes really good pictures when properly dialed in.Cons: At wide open it has very narrow sliver of focus, and need to offset center camera focus to far left when using as a "center focus" shot.I have not used this lens for any video only pictures connected to a Nikon D3300 and with an adapter to a Pentax K-5. I do not recommend using this lens with an adapter that contains an inner focus glass on a Pentax K-5 it will add a haze to all shots. When used with a Nikon it produces good results however if you normally shoot center focus you need to set your camera (or offset) to the far left "dot" in the AF area and use that as your new focus point.In other words its shoots to the left. I experimented taking shots of my cat first with standard settings of the camera and when I focused on his face and eyes all of the pictures were blurry. But when I started moving the red dot in the view finder (camera setting AF even though this is a manual focus lens) each step to the left ending up at the far left it really cleared up the shot. So my new red dot "focus point" was farthest to the left.Before: ++++X++++ (where X is the bulls eye) in the view finder or camera settingAfter: X++++++++ where X is the bulls eye) in the view finder or camera settingIf you are going for good Bokeh at wide open (f/T 1.5) this lens is pretty good but you really need to adjust the focus point on the camera with test shots. At wide open there is a very narrow band of sharp focus. At F/T 4 or higher this lens has better focus. My experience with landscapes, or day time outdoor shots this lens does a good job I like the natural looking colors.If you are using this lens on a Pentax K mount with adapter, which contains inner focus glass, I do not recommend it. The adapter's focus glass adds a horrible haze or thin film appearance to pictures.Using this lens with a Pentax K-5 I shot a fashion show, and Japanese Cultural event and noticed all of the pictures required extensive LR post-processing cranking up the dehaze, and clarity to +15 to make the pictures less hazy.I like this lens in many ways: Good Bokeh, natural colors, sturdy, beefy, good quality lens. When only used with brand specific mounts (Nikon, Canon, etc) and adjusting the focus red dot it produces good results. The focus and aperture rings are nice and smooth with plenty of fine tuning. I feel the colors and rendering are really natural and give it a movie effect and very professional results in my own opinion.However along with remembering to adjust your camera's focusing dot (Nikon far left offset) sight each time you use the lens, and other quirks I personally do not recommend this lens for pictures. I will be looking at other "professional" quality lens.My goal[s]: Original intent for purchasing this lens was to find a high quality/high-end professional lens for my Pentax K-5 since none of the big professional high-end lens makers show any love for Pentax or any local camera stores in Denver knows what Pentax is. I understand Pentax's DA* line but wanted a prime at this focal length at the cinema feel.Disclaimer: I am not a professional photographer only a learning hobbyist. This is my own personal opinion. All tests conducted on crop sensor cameras using all manual camera settings, no flash, handheld, and LR post-processing. 2sharp and smooth, and we are not even talking about the cost of the lens I once bought the 'stills' version of this Samyamg-Rokinon-Vivitar and returned because of the stiff and imprecise focusing (with infinity widely off the mark)I plan to use the 'cine' version for video (with follow focus) but even for stills photography the focusing ring is highly usable with your fingertip and leica-esque smooth. Of course, focus is manual only but easy to achieve that way on a Canon 5d mkii and on Panasonic GH2 or Sony Nex7 (with the appropriate adapter)The lens lacks contrast and is subject to flare with strong light source in the frame at F 1.5 but this can be fixed in post (for stills) with a few clicks. From F 2.0 and 2.8 this is vastly improved and sharpness at least in the center is hard to beat. I used this for portrait photography and vignetting and corner sharpness are the least of my concern as i usually have to add these in post.The included lens hood is a flimsy piece of plastic you can discard immediately but the lens itself is seriously built. Similar lens by Sigma, Olympus cost 3 times as much, albeit with the convenience of AF.At $300 this lens is a steal, the least expensive in the very affordable Samyang line and you won't regret your purchase. I don't miss the Leica 75mm f1.4 I had for 20 years when I use this Samyang. 5I've been doing a lot more portrait work lately and this lens is my favorite! It's such a good quality piece of glass I got this lens a while ago but only recently really started using it because a lot of the work I was doing was more on-the-go stuff and this lens requires a little more time because you have to manually focus and set the aperture for each shot. However, I've been doing a lot more portrait work lately and this lens is my favorite! It's such a good quality piece of glass, especially for the price! My only complaint (and it really is small) is the lens hood, it's kind of cheap material and it falls off easily but it's not a huge deal I still love this lens with all my heart :) I attached a couple pictures I've taken with on t1.5, the depth of field is just phenomenal! 5I've got to step back a few paces from my subject to get good framing. But The quality of this lens is shocking for the price. This is my first purchase of a "de-clicked" lens for videography use. I typically rely on native AF lenses for my Panasonic Lumix G85. I've been underwhelmed with that camera's auto-focus system and decided to try a manual cinema lens. Since I'm a hybrid shooter who's on a budget, I decided to get a lens that could dual purpose both for videography and portraiture. With the 2x crop factor on the MFT camera, I've got to step back a few paces from my subject to get good framing. But, the results are spectacular. Beautiful, creamy bokeh on portraits and smooth focus transitions on video. Build quality appears solid with smooth mechanical motion for both the focus ring and the aperture. The included lens hood is plastic but very sturdy. The image gets a little soft below T1.8 (~f/2.0) but tack-sharp as you stop it down just a fraction. 5Would be great at twice the price. Total no-brainer for filming This is a beast. Huge amounts of glass for micro 4/3, actually gives my GH4 the heft my old Canon stuff had; so be aware this is not the typical MFT featherweight stuff.Like:+ Sharp. Even wide open+ Extremely solid build+ Buttery smooth, low resistance focus and (clickless) aperture rings with FF teeth. Among the best I've used.+ includes a proper center-pinch cap+ Metallic red accent ring actually looks more slick than L glass.Meh:- Min. focal distance is around 3 feet...so no macro.- If I have to knock anything, it's the large size...it won't be living in my day bag. Truthfully, though, I kind of enjoy itNOTE: GH4 and non-IBS shooters, you WILL need stabilization and focus peaking or a full-res monitor for this. It's too tight for handheld without OIS and the DOF is impossibly narrow wide open.I've see comparisons that put this against L-series and Zeiss glass without much to differentiate them. I haven't really rung it out yet, but have found it very handy for dark and shallow DOF applications, and awesome for sneaky closeups in doc scenarios. Sharpness and color rendering are at least on par with the 12-35mm and SLR Magic glass I have (that's high praise)...I'll try to update if I find out otherwise but so far this is looking like an awesome lens, and I foresee heavy use. The fact that it's this cheap is just absurd. 5It works well... for a little while The lens itself worked well for a while. It seemed the build quality was decent, and the glass was relatively sharp (though not as sharp as the 35mm Rokinon Cine in my opinion). I especially liked that the aperture opened so much, allowing me to get shots I never expected at this price range.All that said, unfortunately, within the first 6 months of normal use, the T-stop on the lens failed. It was a pain to get in touch with Rokinon, who eventually asked me to return the lens to them for inspection. I shipped it in the original box in which it was purchased, and they took over a month to finally inspect the lens, only to tell me that it was broken, completely my fault, and that there was nothing they could do about it, except charge me for another one. I explained that it had failed, as per the warranty, through no fault of my own, but I got another reply stating the apparent 'damage' to the lens.The fact is, I may have to buy yet another lens from Rokinon, simply because it's cheaper to buy 2 of these than many similar cine lenses, but I am not happy about the customer service I received, and I am skeptical about the build quality of these lenses. 2
