The 8mm HD FISHEYE T3.8 Lens is Rokinon's 8mm model designed primarily for videographers. Using the same high quality optics as the extremely popular 8mm F/3.5 HD Fisheye lens, this cine lens has a continual de-clicked aperture range from 3.8-22 making it optimal for shooting video.
This lens is also Rokinon's latest Cine 8mm model and features HD glass and a removable hood. On the first Cine 8mm model, RK8MV, the hood is built-in.
The ROKINON 8mm cine lens is designed for digital SLR cameras with APS-C image sensors. For these types of cameras, it provides full-frame coverage - which means that pictures will cover the entire frame. It is also compatible with cameras that have a full-frame sensor. For cameras with full-frame sensors, the lens will produce pictures with a semi-circular image and close images will appear proportionately large for a dramatic effect.
The ROKINON 8mm lens creates images with an expanded and exaggerated perspective and an extremely wide 180-degree angle of view.
