Rokinon 50mm f/1.4 AS IF UMC Image Gallery

Dustin Abbott

March 1st, 2015

Here is a collection of images from the new Samyang/Rokinon 50mm f/1.4 AS IF UMC lens.  This recently released prime has great image quality with some vintage character and beautiful drawing.  It does have some chromatic aberrations, but few other optical shortcomings.  My full review of the Rokinon 50mm f/1.4 AS IF UMC can be found here.  The galleries here contain images of the lens along with images taken in a variety of settings, from landscapes to portraits to shallow depth of field artistic shots.  Enjoy!

Images of the Lens:

General Image Gallery

The images in this gallery have almost all received minimal processing in Lightroom.  A few have had some additional processing, but these images are representative of what you can expect out of the lens.  Focusing it requires some practice, but when you learn the character of the lens you will be able to produce some great looking results.
