Has anyone used the Rokinon cine lenses with the BMCC EF? Did you have any problems with them? Would you recommend them ?

Thanks ! :ugeek:

I have used all of them. GREAT quality. Great color, easy to focus.

Used them for 18 days, 14 hours a day. Loved them.

Just shot a documentary with them. Overall ok. Sturdiness quite ok, the climate was rough and lots of sand, camera assistant cleaned them all the way trough every other day, and they stayed pretty well in those conditions. 85/35 I found quite useful up until the last stop, then they become "ok" soft. The 24 on the other hand, became "nasty" soft. Unusable to my taste. So I stayed 1 or 2 stops before open. 8 and 16 where quite ok actually, though I find the old (not available anymore) sigma 14mm 2.8 the best in the wide angle league.
