We now rent the Rokinon Cine lens kit!
Here’s what we think:
“Rokinon (also known as Samyang & Bower) hands down make the best budget cine prime kit on the market. No, they aren’t as sharp as Zeiss or Canon cine primes, but stopped down a bit they get pretty darn close. And while the build quality isn’t as top shelf, you can rent the entire set of 4 for less than a single Zeiss CP2, making this one of the best lens bargains in the history of digital cinema.”
-Kit is 4x lenses 14mm T3.1, 24mm T1.5 35mm T1.5, 85mm T1.4
-Canon EF mount (Sony adapters available)
-Industry standard 0.8 pitch gearing on focus/aperture
-“de-clicked” smooth aperture ring
-aperture and focus scales on side of the lens for ease of use
-hard packed in Pelican case
-full frame coverage
And the best part is you can get the entire set of 4 for $90/d, $135/ 2 days, and as cheap as $270 per 7 day week! Feel free to bring a camera body in the shop and we’ll let you try them out.
