Episode 51 – Fully Manual Lenses
On this episode, we basically just plugged a lot of Rokinon lenses. Someone from Rokinon, if you’re reading this, you owe us $6.73 for that. Our advertising doesn’t come cheap!
We primarily focused on the Rokinon 8mm fisheye lens, which is highly recommended by all. Tom reviewed that lens here. We also discussed a full frame alternative to this lens, the Zenitar 16mm f/2.8 fisheye, although Tom remarked that the Rokinon 8mm will still work on full frame–you’ll just have to crop.
Corey mentioned the Rokinon 14mm f/2.8 manual focus lens, saying that it’s a great budget full frame wide angle lens. This lens generally gets high marks for sharpness and isn’t too difficult to focus.
We also hit upon the newly-announced Rokinon Tilt/Shift lens. We’re all pretty excited about this one.
Thanks to Corey Dorsey for joining us on this episode. Check out his photos here.
