Rokinon 35mm f/1.4 Reviews
Popphoto reviews the Rokinon 35mm f/1.4 and writes;
“In the Popular Photography Test Lab, the lens produced Excellent SQF scores, even at maximum aperture, indicating first-rate sharpness and contrast. Its distortion control reined in barreling to the Slight range, also a worthy performance, especially for a wideangle lens. Vignetting and close-up performances, while not stellar, were average for the class.”
