[US] Press info:

(New York, New York) March 26, 2019 – ROKINON is proud to announce its new 14mm f/2.8 and 85mm f/1.4 full frame lenses built for the Canon EOS R mirrorless system.

This ultra wide-angle and fast telephoto are the first 14mm and 85mm prime lenses with precision manual focus control to be available in Canon RF mount.

Both lenses sport a new exterior design with a contemporary look that matches and handles well with Canon’s new full-frame mirrorless cameras.

Each lens offers a metal chassis, weather sealing, a metal aperture control with a slip-resistant matte finish, and Ultra Multi-Coating.

The new ROKINON 14mm f/2.8 Canon RF mount ultra wide-angle lens provides a dramatic rectilinear 115.7° view that can focus as close as 11inches and is perfect for astrophotography, landscapes, extreme sports, interiors, and real estate imagery.

Its advanced 14 element-10 group design utilizes four highly specialized element types [High Refractive Index, Hybrid Aspherical, Aspherical and Extra-Low Dispersion] to produce sharply defined images with minimal distortion and chromatic aberrations.

Features include a built-in petal shaped lens hood and a rear gelatin filter holder.

The new ROKINON 85mm F/1.4 Canon RF mount telephoto lens offers a very fast f/1.4 maximum aperture for effective low light shooting, fast shutter speed capture, and precise selective focus control.

Its optical design consists of 9 elements in 7 groups including one Hybrid-Aspherical element to reduce chromatic aberrations for increased clarity and sharpness.

Features include a removable lens hood, a curved blade diaphragm for pleasing bokeh, and a non-rotating 72mm filter mount for easy use of polarizing and other filters that require precise positioning.

This ROKINON short telephoto for Canon RF mount makes it a highly effective optic for travel, candid, portrait, and close up photography.

These first two ROKINON full frame lenses designed for Canon RF mount will be available in April from authorized ROKINON dealers.
