Just Published: Our Rokinon 100mm f/2.8 Macro Lens Review

When looking for high-quality lenses for your DSLR or ILC, it's very easy to get a sense of sticker shock when you see the retail price on some of the higher end glass. This is where Rokinon steps in.

Rokinon is a maker of high-quality, yet affordable optics for just about every major lens mount out there; including most mirrorless mounts. They focus on high-quality glass, at a more affordable price point. The sacrifice is these lenses are fully manual; meaning, you have to take control of the lens, including focusing and choosing the aperture setting. In order to keep the costs down, there are no electronics at all, so the camera will reply on you to help it capture the photos you are looking for; quite the opposite of most of today's cameras or lenses.

Today we take a look at Rokinon's newer 100mm f/2.8 Macro lens, which offers a great focal length for macro shooting, or even portraits, along with a wide maximum aperture for pleasing bokeh and good light gathering ability in marginal conditions.
