From the Manufacturer
The new Rokinon 35mm F/1.4 Aspherical UMC Wide Angle Lens is the most recent addition to Rokinon’s professional line of lenses, and it’s a beauty! It is superbly constructed with spectacular sharpness and high contrast. The Rokinon 35mm F/1.4 is the least expensive 35mm F1.4 lens in the market!
The lens is an optically sophisticated lens designed for full frame cameras, and it can also be used on APS-C and Four/Thirds cameras. The lens is beautifully constructed with multiple lens elements made of quality glass with a high refraction factor. This enables Rokinon to keep the weight low and the dimensions small. The lens is also constructed with one aspherical lens that prevents horizontal chromatic aberration.
Rokinon has also added a focusing scale to this lens which will help the user focus more accurately. The lens is available in the following mounts: Canon, Nikon, Sony, Pentax & Olympus 4/3. The Nikon version features a built-in focus confirm chip for auto aperture and auto exposure.
This new Rokinon lens is an excellent addition to any amateur or professional photographer who is looking for stunning clarity and high contrasts. It is also the perfect lens for high definition video recording. The 35mm lens follows in the footsteps of the Rokinon 8mm Fisheye, 14mm Wide Angle, and 85m F/1.4 lenses.

I've done some basic tests on my 5D mark 2 and here's what I found so far.
Rokinon is Sharper than my 35mm L. Noticeably sharper. Canon is softer at 100% crop than the Rokinon.
Rokinon Wins here in Sharpness.
Canon is Brighter than the Rokinon. Rokinon's 1.4 is equivalent to Canon's 1.6 maybe even 1.7 in Brightness.
( I understand 1.7 does not exist, but as far as brightness is concerned it's in between 1.6 and 1.8 of Canon )
So canon Win here is low light.
Rokinon is not a true 35mm it's more like 38mm
Canon is wider than Rokinon because it's a true 35mm
So I guess Canon wins here in more accurate Focal Length.
Rokinon's Focus Ring is Buttery Smooth and offers more finer focus control than the Canon
Canon's Focus Ring is smaller and not as smooth and more sensitive when focusing in manual. ( which is not good )
Rokinon Wins in the Focus Ring
Rokinon is physically longer than Canon by about an inch.
Canon Wins here for travel and portability.
Depth of Field is about the same on both lens.
Their shallow DOF is buttery at 1.4 but Canon is a tad better especially blurring background lights.
( ie. christmas lights or similar )
I guess Canon Wins here by a small margin.
Rokinon has an external aperture control, which i'm beginning to like alot.
One small negative is that the aperture jumps from 1.4 to 2 on the Rokinon vs Canon's 1.4, 1.6, 1.8, 2
I haven't done any serious color/IQ tests.
I shoot photo/video using Live View and focus assist at 10x zoom,
so the lack of auto focus is a non-issue for me.
So far I'm really impressed.
As good as this lens is for the money, I would not advise a purchase if you are primarily a photographer. This lens is cater-made for videographers who need a sharp, fast, manual lens for DSLR cinematography without breaking the bank. It is manual focus, manual aperture, and your camera will not even see it, so if you're needing a fast lens in this focal length I would recommend the Canon 35mm f/2.0 or the 35mm L lens if you can afford it. Lensrentals dot com is a great service that will let you rent and test lenses before buying.Read more ›
+ Great contrast and sharpness throughout the aperture range, as long as you can get your images in focus!
+ Better edge sharpness than any competing lens when used on a full frame (including Canon 35mm L -- Canon 35mm L has slightly better center sharpness wide open.)
+ Great value.
+ Great lens for video.
- Manual focus takes practice. Live view works great, but requires some getting used to.
- I would not recommend relying on the distance gauge for focusing. On Samyang/Rokinon lenses, this has been known to be notoriously inaccurate.
When comparing this to other lenses, it is important to consider the focal length being covered here. It is quite remarkable to find a 35mm lens with such a great resolution profile at any price point.
With this lens, part of the price you pay is in the form of convenience. If you are willing to give up the convenience of electronic control of focus, and the diaphragm, and are using this lens for situations during which you can take the time to compose and think through your images, you would be very happy with this lens. If you need something to capture more spontaneous situations, then this is probably going to be a frustrating lens for you.
which is about as good as it gets.
This review is based on results with a Canon T1i 1.6x crop factor sensor.
A couple of things: the lens is full manual, so out of the box there is no auto-focus and no focus confirmation, and no auto-aperture adjustment either.
To solve the auto-aperture, just set your camera to aperture priority mode, (Av mode) and then the camera will adjust the shutter speed for whatever aperture you have set.
Turn the aperture ring to F1.4 and compose your shot, then increase the aperture if you want more depth of field, and snap your picture.
But F1.4 gives you nice bokeh, so you can leave it wide open too.
The aperture ring is at the beck of the lens, and right above it is the front of pop-up flash.
So the overhang makes it hard to see what the aperture setting is on the ring.
You can't see it from above, you have to look from the front of the camera.
But this is no big deal, I just point it out for completeness.
To get the focus just right, set your camera to Live View mode, and use the LCD display to check focus.
It's a bit time-consuming, so I've ordered a chip to add to the lens, which will give it focus confirmation ($10) and then I'm all set.
So, back to picture quality: this lens gives spectacular results.
There is no spherical aberration at all.
You really have to hunt at the edges of the image to see any chromatic aberration, and even then it is negligible.
The colours are wonderful too.
And the sharpness of the image will be limited only by how carefully you focus, not by the lens.
I checked it with an ISO12243 lens sharpness chart, and it's just as good as my Canon 300mm F4L IS.Read more ›
