Rokinon Cine VS DS

New NFS member here with a question for the members with experience with the Rokinon Cine line: besides the color matching and focus rings on the Cine DS lenses, is there any image quality differences you notice from the original versions compared to the DS?

On certain Rokinon models the retail price can be as wide as $300 - is there that much of a difference in performance?

I am pretty sure there is no performance difference, you are mainly paying for the color matching, which is a pretty big deal for me. Sure you can fix color shifts in post, but it's simpler if your lenses are color matched.

Sounds good, I appreciate the opinion!

What Guy said is 100% true. The color matching is vital, and Rokinon lenses seem to be way off from each other sometimes. It makes it a lot easier in post to not have to deal with the color difference when switching lenses.
