Rokinon has been making some pretty decent manual lenses for a while now. Their 8mm, 14mm and 85mm have been out for a while. But you can now get your hands on the 8mm F3.8 “Cine” lens from B&H Photo Video. And the price is crazy… $350 is all that is standing between you and this great lens.
I love how someone is making an affordable lens that has filmmakers/video shooters in mind. I REALLY hope this turns into a line of Rokinon Cine lenses!

Canon has release yet another HDSLR. The Canon T4i hasn’t added too much to what Canon currently offers. Autofocus during filming, angled touch screen lcd, and improved low-light sensitivity are some of the new features we’re seeing on this camera.
Canon also has announced a new 40mm Pancake lens. This lens is one of the new video optimized lenses from Canon. So you will find it to be much more quiet compared to other lenses. I am interested to see where Canon takes this idea going forward.
