    @bill - A de-clicked aperture will also let you adjust values in between sort of like F/2.4, F/2.5, F/2.6, F2.7, etc. So you can fine tune your exposure better than with some lenses that jump from one aperture to the next.

    @emm is it safe to say most use of on the fly aperture racking is more for event of functional purposes then? Are there any examples of music videos, narrative or anything like that using aperture rack?
    Thanks for the response, btw.

    @Andy - Autofocus lenses usually have short throw, but the Rokinon lenses are all manual. They have a longer throw than EF lenses.

    Can anyone tell me if these cine lens throw is as short as the photo lens are. It seems when racking focus the distance on photo lenses are soo short it's hard to accurately focus without going to far.

    @bill - Aperture can also control exposure. Example: You are shooting inside a church for a wedding and you have the aperture wide open (more light), and as you follow them outside the church doors you can smoothly dial down the aperture to balance the exposure. The video will look pretty seamless during those exposure changes.

    @bernd thanks for making it clear. The option of changing aperture on the fly sounds interest. I can't think of when I would use it though
    Do people change aperture on the fly in video a lot?

    these cine lenses won't get you better pictures but there are a lot of advantages when shooting video, especially under cinematography conditions. Normal lenses for example have an iris that can be controlled in click stops only: okay for photography, but bad for video. A "de-clicked" version is much better because you can change aperture continuously and smoothly while filming, not only in steps with a clicking noise. The built-in lens gear is needed for attaching a follow focus unit and the relocated markings are nice for the camera assistant who is responsible for pulling focus and stands beside the lens (not behind the camera). He can read the markings on the lens barrel much easier when they are orientated in the best way for him.

    Too bad they won't make other useful focal lengths, like a 50 or 85, in cine form. Honestly, I like my lenses to be matching, so, either all Zeiss, all canon, or all samyang, etc. honestly, having only super wide, wide, and semi wide, are not that useful alone. If they made a 50 and 85 or so, I'd might spring for them.

  9. @Matt a simple adapter for the nikon mount will do just fine really (: You dont need a native mount for m4/3 xD

    Already using my samyang 24 1.4 (Nikon) on both my 5d3 and my AF102 and occasionally my OMD EM5 😀
