Rokinon 24mm f/3.5 ED AS UMC Tilt-Shift Lens Review

The Rokinon 24mm f/3.5 ED AS UMC Tilt Shift lens is a wide-angle, full-frame lens fitted with the perspective control and tilt-shift functions. The Phoblographer has posted a full review for the Rokinon Tilt-Shift 24mm f/3.5 ED AS UMC lens. Their review also comes with lots of sample pictures.

Samyang Rokinon’s manual-focus tilt-shift lens is a good alternative to the brand-products with inexpensive price. Rokinon 24mm f/3.5 ED AS UMC Tilt Shift lens is available at Adorama and price is $989.00.

The lens is comprised of 16 elements in 11 groups, including two aspherical lenses and two Enhanced Dispersion (ED) lenses, which reduce aberrations and provide sharp details and accurate color separation. Multi-layered, anti-reflective UMC coating on each lens element allow even light transmission, minimizing flares and ghosting.

Rokinon 24mm f3.5 ED AS UMC Tilt-Shift Lens Review

From the conclusion part :

What this Rokinon has done is open the floodgates to the world of Perspective Control imagery for photographers that have otherwise avoided these magnificent lenses due to to the sheer cost of them. For instance, Canon’s mkII version of the 24mm f3.5L TS-E costs a whopping $2200, a full $1200 MORE than the Rokinon. When you consider what they have accomplished with their lens and delivered it for under $1k, I find that to be pretty astonishing personally. […]  I have to say though, I am slightly conflicted over this lens. I think that it is a great opportunity for photographers who are new to tilt-shift photography to get into it, and for those of us on a budget it allows us to have a pretty decent lens for the price of entry.
