About Rokinon

Rokinon is a brand known for manufacturing camera lenses and other optical equipment. It is part of the Samyang Optics Company, which is a South Korean optical equipment manufacturer. Rokinon lenses are often praised for their affordability and good optical quality, making them a popular choice among photographers and videographers, especially those on a budget.

Thank you for purchasing the Rokinon AF 35mm F1.4 lens. It is a high-performance prime autofocus optic designed exclusively for SONY E-mount mirrorless interchangeable lens cameras. Please note that supported functions may vary according to the camera model and that it will not mount to Sony A-mount cameras.

Advantages

  • It will provide optimal quality still images and video with both Sony Full Frame and APS-C image sensor cameras. 
  • Equipped with a large F1.4 aperture, its performance and image quality competes with the best in its class.
  • Two high-precision Aspherical plus two High Refractive Index lens elements are utilized to minimize aberrations and increase sharpness.
  • The AF (autofocus) function utilizes an ultrasonic motor for fast, precise, and silent focus operation. 
  • Its size, shape, and grip have been ergonomically designed for enhanced stability and comfortable use. 
  • The refined all-metal design combines a luxurious look with excellent durability. 
  • The IF (Internal Focus) design prevents both changes in length and front element rotation for easy use with polarizing and other filters where positioning must be maintained.

Cautions

To maintain your safety and prevent damage to the lens, please fully familiarize yourself with the following:

  • Do not look directly at the sun through the lens as it may seriously impair your vision.
  • Do not apply excessive force when attaching the lens to the camera as it may cause damage to the lens or your camera.
  • The lens is a precision optical product, so dropping or excessive impact may cause product failure.
  • Attach or detach the lens only while the camera is turned off.
  • Be careful not to touch or contaminate the gold contacts on the mount as it can adversely affect communication with the camera.
  • Protect the lens from water, high humidity, and excessive heat.
  • Always store the lens with the lens cap on in a dry and well-ventilated location out of direct sunlight. Direct sunlight passing through the lens could become concentrated enough to cause a fire.
  • Avoid subjecting the lens to drastic temperature changes such as moving from a very cold outdoor location to a warm indoor location. This can cause moisture in the air to condense inside or on the outside of the lens and lead to failure or mold production. Before taking the lens indoors from a cold outdoor location, put the lens in a plastic bag or sealed camera bag and remove it only when the lens has warmed up to room temperature.

  • When mounting the lens make sure that it clicks in place otherwise it may detach and cause damage or injury.Rokinon 35mm Auto Focus Wide Angle Lens-FIG 4

Cleaning

  • It is extremely important before cleaning to dust off the lens surface using a lens blower or a soft brush to remove any foreign particles or grit that could scratch the lens.
  • Using a clean microfiber lens cloth, gently wipe the lens in a circular motion from the center outwards towards the edges of the glass.

Focusing

Sony mirrorless interchangeable lens cameras offer various methods of focusing. For detailed information regarding the available focus mode settings for your particular model, refer to the instruction manual of your camera. Functions supported by the lens may vary.

  • AF-S (Single-Shot AF): Autofocus operates when the shutter button is pressed halfway down. Once the subject is in focus, the focus is locked. It is suitable for shooting motionless subjects such as landscapes or snapshots.
  • AF-C (Continuous AF): Autofocus continues to operate and keeps adjusting the focus while the shutter button is pressed and held halfway down. It is suitable for shooting moving subjects such as sports.
  • AF-A (Automatic AF): When the shutter button is pressed halfway down, the camera automatically recognizes whether the subject is moving or not, and switches the AF mode between AF-S and AF-C accordingly. Use this mode to shoot various subjects at the same time, or to avoid switching the AF mode manually.
  • DMF (Direct Manual Focus): Allows you to use manual focus and autofocus in combination. Press the shutter button halfway down to focus automatically. Keep the shutter button halfway down and rotate the focusing ring on the lens to fine focus.
  • MF (Manual Focus): Allows you instead of the camera to adjust the focus by rotating the focusing ring on the lens. MF is effective when autofocus does not work well such as in macro shooting

Lens Hood

The supplied petal-shaped hood is designed specifically for the Rokinon AF 35mm F1.4 lens for optimum effectiveness. It should be used at all times to help prevent contrast-reducing flare, provide better contrast, and for added protection.

  • To mount the hood, align the white index mark (dot) of the hood with the white hood index mark (dot) of the lens and rotate the hood clockwise until you hear and feel it click in place.
  • The hood is mounted correctly when the short “petals” are on the left and right and the longer petals are on the top and bottom. If the hood is not mounted correctly it might become damaged or create vignetting in which the petals of the hood can be seen or darken the edges of the image.
  • To remove the hood, grasp it firmly near its base and turn counter-clockwise
  • clockwise
  • You can store the hood in its reverse position for easy transport. Reverse the hood so that it covers the lens barrel and again align the white index mark (dot) of the hood with the white hood index mark (dot) of the lens and rotate the hood clockwise until you hear and feel it click in place.
  • Please note that the lens hood might block the light from small-sized flash units causing a shadow at the bottom of the image.Rokinon 35mm Auto Focus Wide Angle Lens-fig 3
