Rokinon 8mm T/3.8 Fisheye Cine Lens for Canon – Review from Ricky Perrone

by planetMitch4 Comments

We get a lot of great mail from our loyal planet5D readers and this one comes from Ricky Perrone who sent us his review of the Rokinon 8mm T/3.8 Fisheye Cine Lens for Canon cameras. It is pretty inexpensive and Ricky seems pretty impressed. I've never used a Rokinon so this is encouraging me to possibly explore something other than Canon glass.

If you have a great review, please don't be shy about
giving us a shout!

  1. We just bought the Rokinon 25mm T1.4 and the 35mm T1.4 and are loving them. We have used them on our 7D, 5D and most recently on the new FS700 and they have been really great. I was introduced to them by a friend who made this video.

    I would love to see more of these kinds of affordable solutions. Nothing is automatic, but they are nice.
