Rokinon 8mm T/3.8 Cine Fisheye Lens for Nikon -$200 OFF

Here's a nice -$200 OFF discount on the Rokinon 8mm Cine Fisheye Lens (for Nikon mount while supplies last). There's a few reasons many of you may consider this lens deal. Let's start with the fact that it's one of Rokinon's Cine lens with built in focus and aperture gears to use with your follow focus and a de-clicked aperture ring.

Also don't be turned off that it's available in a Nikon mount, that's actually one of the best options out there if you're trying to adapt this lens. Basically you can easily adapt a Nikon lens to a Canon DSLR but not a Canon EF to a Nikon. Some people prefer to buy the Nikon mount for MFT cameras so that they can use a Speed Booster or Focal Reducer adapter instead of buying a dedicated MFT lens (though you may not need one for this fisheye).

Let's not forget that instead of buying an MFT lens, adapting this Nikon fisheye will let you use adapters like the FotoDiox ND Throttle with a built in Variable ND Filter that sits 'behind' the lens. As you know with a Fisheye lens you can't easily throw a filter on the front which helps to control the shutter speed of your video.

And yes it's a Fisheye lens, but on a BMPCC or GH4 camera at 4K it's no too much of a fisheye look and can be corrected back down to 1080p for that wide angle view (article here). While supplies last (find it here).

  1. I meant, it is a C mount lens, so I'm not 100% sure if it will even cover most of the BMPCC sensor. I suspect now, as I think from memory it covered a fairly small part of my GH1 sensor when I used it for some shots on that.

    @David Peterson - The BMPCC is about a 3x crop, so possibly that's around an 18mm field of view.

  3. Thanks for sharing this deal! I've never seen the cine version that cheap before.

    A fisheye has been a minor hole I had in my lens collection which is now filled (except for a crazy 6-12mm f/1.2 C mount that I aleady own, but for most uses that is not practical. Which reminds me... I haven't tried it out on my BMPCC yet, I wonder how much at 6mm & f/1.2 it will cover??).

    @Dave - It was in FCPX. There is another article just a few below this one that has the information.

    Great deal just snagged one up, thanks for the post. I vagly remember you making a video on how to correct fish eye distortion before. Was it in After Effects or the Final Cut plugin that you mentioned?
