First review of the first E-mount Full Frame lens: Rokinon 24mm T/1.5!


Image courtesy: ThePhoBlopgrapher.

ThePhoBlographer (Click here) tested the Rokinon 24mm T/1.5 lens which is also the first E-mount lens that covers the Full frame image circle. Actually Samyang/Rokinon announced five of these Cine Lenses:

8mm T/3.8 Fisheye Cine Lens for Sony E at Amazon (Click here), Adorama (Click here) and BHphoto (Click here).
14mm T3.1 Cine Lens for Sony E at Amazon (Click here), Adorama (Click here) and BHphoto (Click here).
24mm T1.5 Cine Lens for Sony E at Amazon (Click here), Adorama (Click here) and BHphoto (Click here).
35mm T1.5 Cine Lens for Sony E at Amazon (Click here), Adorama (Click here) and BHphoto (Click here).
85mm T1.5 Cine Lens for Sony E at Amazon (Click here), Adorama (Click here) and BHphoto (Click here).

If you buy them you can use them on your current APS-C NEX camera or the Vg900 and future NEX-9 FF camera! ThePhoBlographer writes about these lenses: “They’re sharp, contrasty, affordable, ergonomically excellent, and overall exhibit some excellent image quality. The textured exterior is wonderful when the lens is being held in a hand–though we overall still recommend one to use a follow focus system when using this lens.

 

Reminder: As usual be aware that Samyang has many different brand names. Click on these Slidoo eBay links to see a list.
USA: Rokinon, Samyang, Opteka, Bower and in Europe: Samyang, Rokinon, Walimex, Falcon, Vivitar.

Cool EQUINOX E-mount Camera Concept!

All concept images via Yanko Design.

We had quite a long and complex discussion last week about how Sony should make hybrid mount camera. And Designers Dae Jin Ahn and Chun Hyun Park found a very creative solution. They designed a modular NEX camera that has as its hardcore a compact Sensor module. I found this to be an extremely elegant solution but I doubt Sony is going to develop a modular E-mount system- Would be nice, but not going to happen.
