If you are looking for a good full frame autofocus capable prime lens, Rokinon has now expanded its range with a new .

Rokinon lenses have always offered good value, and true to form it has now expanded its range to include a new 35mm f/1.4 autofocus model, bringing the range up to four lenses.

The new 35mm lens is clearly fast, making extremely shallow depth of field possible on full frame sensors. Focussing is taken care of by an internal mechanism and a none rotating front element, which will make use with matte boxes or screw in filters such as polarisers easy to work with.

It uses 11 glass elements in 9 groups, and the minimum focusing distance is 0.98ft. The filter thread is 67mm. The aperture ranges from f/1.4 through to f/16.

MSRP is $799, and the lens will be available in November.

It is always good to see wider choice when it comes to lenses, especially fast glass such as this. While the autofocus nature may not primarily suit cine style shoots, such a lens can make a good all rounder, and do double duty for both stills and video work.
