The rokinon 12mm canon is nice because it’s great in low light. Canon m lenses are limited and looking for canon ef m lenses is challenge. That why the rokinon 12mm a cool budget find.

Nice Bro <3

HAM Tube says:

Has the winner of the canon M100 been announced?

mhs vz says:

Pretty sharp. But primes will always have a sharpeness advantage over zooms. Really like the range of the EF-M 11-22 mm zoom though.

Joy Khan says:

why your name plate shows “Sean” when you introduce yourself as “Shawn”

Vlogs By Caleb says:

AWESOME VIDEO! Could you do a video on how to make a semi similar intro like yours?

CRA NA says:

I got the m100 and the 80d which one do you think is better I know for vlogging the m100 do I need both do you think

More Content For Earth says:

The canon is still much better quality. But if price is the factor.. Well, canon is still better.. 😛
Your review was great!

Beempa Family Fun says:

Nice review. Most definitely a Photography lens. For video, it would be okay for stationary shots on a tripod, but for vlogging, this is NOT a lens one should invest in. Even if you bought a gimbal (around $300-$400), that would add to the total overall price, and you might as well get glass whereby it has IS built in with autofocus. But for photos, this is a nice lens. Looks crisp indeed.

Jaret Ikhe says:

Love this tips, think media

Deidre Samuels says:

Those shots look amazing! if I had the money I would definitely splurge and buy it.

paradoxdesigns says:

I’m using a 14mm Rokinon with an adapter on my EOS-M and WOW does that thing ever master night photography!

Jr Awr says:

Dang Sean, that Cactus Garden ended on Jan 1st lol.

Great video still, very nice price point too. Not too hard on the wallet

Christian Vedder says:

Sean, did you happen to use the Rokinon with a Metabones?  I’m considering it for my GH5 with Canon Metabones Speedbooster adaptor, which gives you an extra stop of light and reduces crop factor.  Thoughts or insights?

ashwani singh says:

Awesoem viedeo bro
Very wide lens indeed

The Life of Tony says:

No comment.

vaibhav patil says:

Thats good lense with miror less camera and the 2.0 apprature

DennisDee says:

How about using this lens for vlogging?

MAT TEO says:

I have this Samyang 12mm f2 for my Sony a6300 and it is pretty much my all time favorite lens for gigs and live music photography / videography. It’s super sharp, compact, fast and at first I was skeptical about the manual focus but then after a few days of testing I got used to it and I shot so many things with it that it stays on my a6300 all the time. Here are a couple of shots from last night concert:

ARVI says:

I still record with my phone. I’ve been tryna win the camera competitions but I just can’t get any luck. Hopefully more will be coming soon.

Youssef Mohamed says:

great vedio from great man ! Can I use the gopro accessories for any other action camera? And what’s the best action camera 100-130 $ if there acamra more expensive than this budget ok but to be very better .

RowlWool says:

I really need to find a fast wide angle lens with quiet auto focus for Canon APSC.

Integra DIY says:

No autofocus can not look further.. there always has to be something sketchy about a good cheap lens lol. nothing nice comes cheap

McKinley Griggs says:

I was seriously looking at a Rokinon lens earlier haha not this same one. But they have some awesome lens for the price.

Kong Lor says:

Looks nice. I’m debating on getting the Canon sl2 or the Panasonic g7. Which one would be a friendly user camera?

To Ni says:

Why peso is so cheap. Its still expensive for me. Haha! anyway i think with mirrorless camera & a rokinon lens is good enough for me if you don’t need auto focus it can work on a studio footage. Considering it can work on low light situation i think its an awesome lens.

Raph Roxas says:

can i use that on canon m10?

Asante Russell says:

Had this for almost two years. Switch to the Lumix G7 from a Canon 7D when it came out. Film weddings (Here – ) almost entirely on this and the kit because well, that’s all i have. People just complain too much. Do what you can with what you have. Imagine the things i could do when i do get my hands on a more versatile lens. Best luck everyone.

Cubing CubeZ says:
