Photography News: Fast Wide-Angle and Portrait-Length Prime Lenses From Rokinon Designed for APS-C and Micro Four Thirds Mirrorless Cameras

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwired - September 21, 2015) - B&H Photo would like to share the announcement of the 50mm f/1.2 lens and the 21mm f/1.4 lens from Rokinon. Designed specifically for APS-C and Micro Four Third sensors, both lenses feature a compact design, with each measuring slightly less than 3" long.

The Rockinon 50mm f/1.2 lens is a very fast prime, lending itself to low-light photography and shallow-depth-of-field imagery. Constructed of 8 elements in 7 groups, the lens includes two aspherical elements to reduce coma and chromatic aberration, and Ultra Multi-Coating (UMC) to suppress ghosting and lens flare for high-contrast images. The lens provides a 35mm equivalent focal length of 80mm on Canon EF-M mount cameras, 76mm on Fuji X mount and Sony E mount cameras, and 100mm on Micro Four Thirds cameras. A rounded nine-blade aperture provides pleasing out-of-focus areas, and a round lens hood is included to prevent stray light from causing flare.
