In this video we’re going to review the Rokinon 12mm full-frame fisheye lens. We’re going to compare it to the Nikon 16mm f/2.8 fisheye as well as the Rokinon 14mm non-fisheye.
You’ll definitely want to click through to our site and read the full written review, with image samples and sharpness crops etc. however simply put, this lens is amazing. For anyone who finds themselves shooting in confined spaces, whether urbex photography, spelunking, (caving) or simple interior real-estate photography, having an extra few mm on the wide end is always a good thing.
This lens is significantly wider than the Nikon 16mm f/2.8 fisheye, and when de-fisheye’d in Photoshop using a plugin like Fisheye Hemi, it is jaw-droppingly wider than the Rokinon 14mm f/2.8.
Also, it is much sharper than the Nikon fisheye, (therefore making it as sharp as or sharper than all other full-frame fisheye lenses on the market!) …and is marginally sharper than the Rokinon 14mm f/2.8 even when de-fisheye’d.
