The Rokinon 16mm T2.6 Cine Lens is a wide-angle lens optimized for digital cinematography. The lens produces an image circle that will cover APS-C sized sensors or smaller. The focus and aperture rings feature industry-standard 0.8 pitch gearing for attaching a follow focus unit. The aperture ring is also de-clicked to allow for smooth iris pulls while shooting. Focus, aperture, and depth of field markings are on the side of the lens to aid focus pullers, who typically operates on the side of the camera.

The 16mm T2.6 lens is constructed out of 14 individual elements in 11 groups, including one aspherical and one hybrid aspherical element. Aspherical elements help minimize unwanted distortion and chromatic aberrations. The lens also has a multi-layer coating to reduce flares and maintain image contrast in bright conditions.

With an angle of view of 106.9°, the lens is well-suited for shooting landscapes, architecture, and for use in tight interior locations. A maximum aperture of T2.6 means that the lens is effective in low-light shooting and can produce a shallow depth of field when the lens is closer to the subject. The lens has a minimum focus distance of 11.8". A bayonet-mount lens hood and lens pouch come included with the lens.

1. Rokinon MTF charts use theoretical equations to plot performance and do not rely on subjective 
opinion, subject matter, camera features, software or other factors. They plot the contrast and resolution of a lens from the center to its edges, against a "perfect" lens that would transmit 100% of the light that passes through it. The contrast of a lens is important because it directly relates to resolution.

3. Rokinon tests are carried out with the lens at its maximum (widest) aperture (Ex. 24mm F1.4 lens is measured at F1.4 for MTF).

4. Zero on the chart’s X-axis (horizontal axis) 
represents the center of the lens. As a line moves right, it indicates the change of contrast and sharpness from the center to the edge of the image. 

5. The Y-axis (vertical axis) plots the transmission of light through the lens. It has a maximum value of "1.0" to indicate 100% transmittance of the light, which is not possible to achieve. 

6. The blue graph lines (10 lines/mm) represent contrast measurement. The red graph lines (30 lines/mm) represent resolution.

7. Sagittal lines (thick lines) represent the contrast 
measurements of line pairs that are parallel to an imaginary diagonal line that runs from the bottom left hand corner to the top right hand corner of a image frame. Meridonial lines (thin lines) represent line pairs that are perpendicular to the imaginary diagonal line.

8. The higher and straighter the blue lines, the better the contrast. The higher and straighter the red lines, the better the resolution.
