Product Description

Style: Canon

The NEW ROKINON 8mm FISHEYE T3.8 Lens is our first lens designed primarily for videographers. Using the same high quality optics as the extremely popular 8mm F/3.5 Fisheye lens, this cine lens has a continual de-clicked aperture range from 3.8-22 making it optimal for shooting video. The ROKINON 8mm cine lens is designed for digital SLR cameras with APS-C image sensors. For these types of cameras, it provides full-frame coverage - which means that pictures will cover the entire frame. It is also compatible with cameras that have a full-frame sensor. For cameras with full-frame sensors, the lens will produce pictures with a semi-circular image and close images will appear proportionately large for a dramatic effect. The ROKINON 8mm lens creates images with an expanded and exaggerated perspective and an extremely wide 180° angle of view.

The de-clicked aperture works nicely. The focus is smooth but almost unneeded with a fish like this. The lens is very soft wide open but quickly sharpens once stopped down even a little bit. A great buy at this price and I'll likely buy some of the other Rokinon cine lenses in the future.

Style Name: Canon
I use this lens on a Canon T3i. It works great for what it is(the fisheye effect gets pretty boring after a while). After weeks of watching it, I found one on ebay for $215 shipped. Both the focus and aperture rings adjust smoothly but the focus is pretty much pointless since fisheyes' are designed to take massively wide/distorted images. Optically, it functions exactly like the standard/clicked aperture version, I uploaded 2 images I took with this lens, but if you want more examples of how your photos will turn out go check the examples on the FE8M-C. The viewing angle is extremely wide (167 degrees on Canon, 180 on all other mounts) - I still get my fingers in the corners of photos regularly. The lens is full manual, but doesn't take much time to get comfortable with.

I gave it 4 stars because the built in hood on the lens obstructs the built in flash on my camera (the FE8M-C has the same hood, the HD8M-C has a removable hood and doesn't obstruct the flash) and the images could be a tad bit sharper.

Overall, if you want a fisheye for both still images and video this will work wonderfully. If you want to save money you will probably be fine with the "clicked" version even for video.
