The affordable Rokinon 16mm T2.2 Cine DS is a sharp, fast wide-angle lens for APS-C SLRs and mirrorless cameras.

  • +

    Geared for cinema use., Nice price., Quite sharp., Focuses to 7.9 inches., Available for multiple systems.

  • -

    Doesn't cover a full-frame image sensor., Manual focus isn't for everyone., Omits optical stabilization., Some fall-off at corners.

I like Rokinon and I have 3 of their lenses, but make sure you read, not full frame. I don't know why they decided to make this super 35mm only and most of the cine ds line is full frame. Had to go with the 14mm instead and even slower.

Super fast prime lens from Rokinon. Got a few of their lenses and they are all super sharp with great bokeh and blur. These lens are comparable to primes quadruple their price. To me it was a no brainer. Beautiful images and video.

This is my favorite lens in the group of seven Rokinon primes that I have so far (8, 12, 16, 24, 35, 50, & 85mm). They're all DS except for the 12mm (a CV version), which was a fisheye in the DS style. I wanted minimal distortion at that f/l. Quite sharp and a good general purpose f/l for my GH-4.

An excellent, fast lens, certainly for the price.

I absolutely love this lens for my APS-C Canon camera. I got this lens as gift from my son, due to the reason I was always biting about full frame lenses on crop sensor camera. Finally, this lens produces very sharp images and video. I am more than happy with all results in last two weeks.
