FYI, here's a deal on that expires in the next two (2) days. The Rokinon 24mm T/1.5, 35mm T/1.5, and 85mm T/1.5 Cine lenses are bundled for an extra savings or $250 dollars. Available in Canon, Nikon, and Sony E/A mounts, but they can easily be adapted to fit M4/3 cameras as well. As far as Rokinon Cine Lenses go, these are probably the most popular and the deal ends March 2nd. Check it out via B&H (found here)

Here's a recent video from Vimeo member Jason Shelton put together with the BlackMagic Design Cinema Camera. He had the opportunity to shoot with the new BMCC for a week and used the following lenses: Tamron 18mm-270mm, Rokinon 24mm 1.4, Rokinon 35mm 1.4, Rokinon 85mm 1.4, and Canon 200mm 2.8.

The BlackMagic Design Cinema Camera was announced in April 2012 (last year) and is still on backorder with every retail store. There are quite a few consistently listed to auction via eBay, but just be prepared to pay a bit more than the $2995 suggested retail price. Check out the listings via eBay (click here).

The Rokinon 85mm F/1.4 is a popular lens among DSLR video shooters. The focal range and aperture combination make for a solid portrait lens or capable when shooting in low lighting conditions. Not the craziest deal i've seen, but If you were already planning on such a lens, it's currently discounted at $50 dollars off (for all camera mounts) and sale ends next week. Check it out via B&H (click here).

The Ultrawide Rokinon 8mm and fast 85mm F/1.4 lenses are back on Lightning Deals. These deals have always proved to be the cheapest price you'll find for these lenses. These deals only last for a few hours or until the quantity is sold out. You might find that it brings you to a Nikon mount deal, but no worries. Rokinon are all manual focus lenses, and the Nikon mount can fit on Canon bodies with a very thin and simple adapter like the ones (seen here on Amazon).

The Nikon mount can also fit pretty much everything else without a complicated adapter like a Sony FS100 down to a Sony NEX7 or GH2. Check it out at the deals page via Amazon (Click Here).

I got up a bit late today and missed out on the Rokinon 85mm Lighting Deal, but not all is lost. Coming up in a few hours is another Lighting Deal for the Rokinon 14mm available in a variety of mounts including Canon, Nikon, Sony, Olympus, and Pentax.

People have been pretty hip to these deals as of late, and the last Rokinon 35mm F/1.4 lens deal sold out in one minute. If you're interested in a wide angle fast aperture lens, be swift and check out the deal that will hit later today via Amazon (Click Here).

Another thumbs up review about the Rokinon 85mm F/1.4 Lens. I wrote an older article about these lenses found here: http://cheesycam.com/budget-manual-focus-85mm-f1-4-lens/. As you know Canon has an affordable F/1.8 lens, but according to Vimeo member Jared, the Rokinon would be a better choice for those who shoot only video. These lenses come rebranded between Rokinon, Bower, Samyang, Vivitar, and a few others. You might want to check pricing on each one as they will vary on the brand name. Some cheaper than others, but pretty much the same lens. Everything else you need to know is in the video above. [Thanks Jarrod]
