The Canon EF-S mount Samyang 8mm T3.8 Cine UMC Fisheye CS II Lens was
developed primarily for film and video applications. The cine version of
Rokinon's 8mm lens features industry-standard gearing for the focus and
aperture ring, and the aperture ring has been de-clicked for smooth iris
pulls. The aperture and focus scales have also been relocated to the
side of the lens, where it is easier for focus pullers to read them.
This lens is compatible with APS-C-sized sensors and provides a
35mm-equivalent focal length of 12.8mm. Its 180° angle of view makes it
well-suited to creative applications. The optical construction
incorporates one hybrid aspherical element to reduce chromatic
aberration and distortion to produce sharper imagery. Additionally, a
UMC coating has been applied to lens elements to minimize lens flare and
ghosting for more contrast-rich images.
