Style: Micro Four Thirds The new Rokinon 85mm Cine Lens is made especially for DSLR video enthusiastsc videographers and cinematographers. It features the same outstanding image quality as the standard Rokinon 85mm F1.4 lens but has the added benefits of de-clicked apertures and follow focus compatibility. De-clicked apertures means that there are no hard clicks when changing apertures and the aperture can be manually set to a very specific number (like f/1.7c f/2.8). The lens has also been constructed so that it can be easily attached to follow focus systems which are widely used by videographers. The Rokinon Cine lenses are the most affordablec high quality lenses in the market today.
The lens itself worked well for a while. It seemed the build quality was decentc 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 muchc allowing me to get shots I never expected at this price range. br brAll that saidc unfortunatelyc within the first 6 months of normal usec the T-stop on the lens failed. It was a pain to get in touch with Rokinonc who eventually asked me to return the lens to them for inspection. I shipped it in the original box in which it was purchasedc and they took over a month to finally inspect the lensc only to tell me that it was brokenc completely my faultc and that there was nothing they could do about itc except charge me for another one. I explained that it had failedc as per the warrantyc through no fault of my ownc but I got another reply stating the apparent damage to the lens. br brThe fact isc I may have to buy yet another lens from Rokinonc simply because its cheaper to buy 2 of these than many similar cine lensesc but I am not happy about the customer service I receivedc and I am skeptical about the build quality of these lenses.
