Rokinon Announces New 12mm T/3.1 Fisheye Cine Lens

By Anthony Thurston on November 11th 2014

This morning, Rokinon announced the latest addition to their ever growing, and ever popular, manual focus cine lens line: the 12mm T/3.1 Fisheye.


The new 12mm T/3.1 Fisheye will come in five different mount options, including Canon EF, Nikon F, and Sony E. In addition to the maximum aperture of T/3.1 (if you need a refresher on the difference between T stops and F stops, check out our post here), the lens stops down all the way to T/22, and features a de-clicked aperture ring for smooth aperture transitions.

Rokinon 12mm T/3.1 Specs

  • Aperture Range: T3.1 to 22
  • Three Extra Low Dispersion Elements
  • Two Aspherical Elements
  • Nano Crystal and UMC Lens Coating
  • Manual Focus; Internal Focus System
  • Geared Focus and Aperture Rings
  • De-Clicked Manual Aperture Ring
  • 180º Angle of View
  • Removable Petal-Shaped Lens Hood


The Rokinon 12mm T/3.1 will be available starting December 1st, and is now available for pre-order over on B&H for $549. Not a bad price for a high quality fisheye lens for use in your next video project. Maybe an early Christmas present for yourself…
