11 Jan Lens Review: Rokinon 12mm f2 (Fujifilm X Mount)

Combine the Rokinon 12mm f2 with the X Trans Sensor and you’ll get stunning photos.

Whenever wide angle lenses come in, I’m always super excited because a lens like the Rokinon 12mm f2 is bound to be fantastic but also really cool with the way it renders the world. Rokinon has consistently been known as a manufacturer that delivers stunning quality at a really affordable price point. Granted there are sometimes tradeoffs, like it being manual focus (which isn’t that bad if you know what you’re going for), and there have been a variety of reports on quality. But Rokinon has pledged that they’ve improved, and if you look at their higher end lineup of glass then that makes sense. In the case of the Rokinon 12mm f2, it’s a lens designed for APS-C cameras; and what better system to test it on than the Fujifilm X series?

Pros and Cons


  • Great colors
  • Small build
  • Lightweight
  • Nice aperture clicks
  • Sharp


  • There are lenses with better bokeh for sure…
