NYC, NY (PRWEB) March 21, 2014
B&H Photo is proud to announce the official release of new manual focus cine and photo lenses from Rokinon. The new photo lenses include a second-generation 8mm f/2.8 for Mirrorless cameras, a 10mm f/2.8 lens for Mirrorless cameras and APS-C DSLR cameras, and a 12mm f/2.0 lens for mirrorless cameras. Rokinon has also added Sony E and Micro Four Thirds mounts for the existing 24mm f/1.4 and 35mm f/1.4 lenses. The Cine lenses include a new 8mm T3.1 for mirrorless cameras and a 14mm T1.5, 24mm T1.5, 35 T1.5, and an 85mm T1.5 for Micro Four Thirds cameras.
The 8mm f/2.8 UMC Fisheye II lens is the second generation of this lens, and has one more aspherical lens and one more ED element than its predecessor, for a total of 11 elements in 8 groups (2 ASP and 3 ED). It is available in Canon EF-M, Fujifilm X, Samsung NX, and Sony E mounts.
Next is the 10mm f/2.8 ED AS NCS CS lens, which is being released in both mirrorless and DSLR APS-C mounts. It has a 35mm focal length equivalence of 15mm on APS-C format cameras, 16mm on Canon EF and EF-M cameras, and 20mm on Micro Four Thirds cameras. The lens has one Extra-low Dispersion and two aspherical elements, and a nano-crystal anti-reflection coating system. The Nikon F-mount version of this lens provides automatic exposure capability in A/S/M and P modes. The lens is available in Canon EF, Pentax K, Sony A, Canon EF-M, Fujifilm X, Samsung NX, Sony E, and Micro Four Thirds mounts.
The 12mm f/2.0 NCS CS lens for mirrorless cameras is available in Canon EF, Fujifilm X, Sony E, and Micro Four Thirds mounts. The lens has three Extra-low Dispersion elements, one aspherical element, and one hybrid aspherical element. Nano-crystal coating on the two front lens elements minimizes ghosting and flare. This lens also accepts 67mm threaded filters.
New for Micro Four Thirds cameras is an 8mm f/3.5 HD Photo lens that features a 180° angle of view with a 12" minimum focusing distance. It has aspherical elements and multi-layer coating for sharp, high-contrast imaging.
Rokinon has added Sony E-mount and Micro Four Thirds-mount versions of their 24mm f/1.4 ED AS UMC Wide-Angle lens and their 35mm f/1.4 Wide-Angle lens, making these popular lenses available to more photographers.
The new cine lenses from Rokinon feature a de-clicked aperture ring, making them ideal for video shooters who require smooth, silent adjustments.
There is an 8mm T3.1 UMC Fisheye II Cine lens for Canon EF-M, Fujifilm X, Samsung NX, and Sony E mounts, as well as an 8mm T3.8 Fisheye Cine lens for Micro Four Thirds cameras. Both lenses have a maximum aperture of T22, with a 180° angle of view, and the 8mm T3.8 fisheye lens includes a removable hood.
Also newly available with a Micro Four Thirds mount are the 24mm T1.5 Cine ED AS IF UMC lens, the 14mm T3.1 Cine lens, the 35mm T1.5 Cine lens, and the 85mm T1.5 Cine lens.
