Rokinon AF 35mm T/2.8
The new AF 35mm T/2.8 lens supports autofocusing and
measures in at a squat 1. 2 inches and weighs 3 ounces. The
35mm lens can focus on objects as close as 13.8-inches from
the front of the lens and stops down to T/22 (Rokinon has
calibrated this lens by the cinema T-stop standard). There are
seven aperture blades and it accepts 49mm filters.
Irix 11mm f/4
This wide-angle lens is available in full-frame Canon, Pentax
and Nikon mounts. It’s a manual focus lens that features a focus
lock mechanism, a rear gel filter slot and will click when focus
reaches infinity. Like the company’s 15mm lens, the 11mm is
sold in two versions. Both are weather-sealed with nine rounded
aperture blades that stop down to f/22. The Firefly edition is
built of a lightweight composite with an anti-slip rubber focus
ring and ships with a soft lens pouch. The Blackstone is built
from a more durable aluminum and magnesium with engraved
fluorescent markings on the lens barrel. The Blackstone edition
also ships with a hard lens case.

speedy autofocusing. There’s a nine-blade aperture, two ultra-extra low dispersion elements and one extra-low dispersion
element to keep images free of flare and ghosting. It’s splash- and dust-proof
and has an aperture ring for those who like to exercise manual control over their
exposure. This speedy prime stops down to f/16 and accepts 46mm filters.
