Round Two. “Yet another match between Zeiss and Rokinon. The first was a comparison of fast 35mm primes. This time we’re going to look at a pair of ultra wide-angle primes. A 14mm T3.1 from Rokinon and a 15mm f/2.8 from Zeiss. Some may say it’s an unfair comparison and I would probably agree. It could also be said that Rokinon has something going for them if they’re being compared to an optical giant like Zeiss. In fact, it’s quite the opposite. It’s a testament to the quality of glass that Zeiss has become known for. Zeiss is the standard by which others are measured. Hence, this seemingly unfair comparison. But how unfair is it really? How much performance does your hard-earned money provide with a power-house like Zeiss, over a little Rokinon lens from Gangnam?”
