I was taking some pics with my Canon T5i + Rokinon 35mm T1.5 Cine and it was normal. Then, I switched to my kit lenses 18-55mm (which is a auto lens in terms of aperture). Then, I switched back to my Rokinon lens.

The problem is that when I'm taking pictures in Manual mode, the live view is too dark, but when I see the picture afterwards it's as it was supposed to (much brighter). But when I'm recording, the light is normal. The LCD shows it just like when I see the picture after it's taken.

The main problem is when I'm about to take the picture, I cant barely see anything, even setting the ISO higher and lowering the shutter speed (with 1.5 apperture). It just started happening now, before it was really working just fine.

PS: In AV and Tv mode the brightness is just as normal as when I use the Manual mode to record.

PS 2: When I'm using the kit lenses the light in Picture and Record mode (in Manual Mode) is both equal, as it was before with the Rokinon.

So, what could have happened? What can I do to solve this?

Thanks in advance!
