Capture more delicate and wider world with extra-wide-angle lens
- Nano Coating System (NCS) of Samyang Optics
- 18mm (35mm Equivalent)
- Aperture Range: f/2.0 to f/22
- One Aspherical & One Hybrid Element
- Three Low-Dispersion Elements
- Glass aspherical(AS) and low dispersion(ED) lenses
- Hybrid aspherical lens (H-ASP)
- 6 aperture blades creating almost circle shape
It is an extra-wide-angle manual focus lens designed for APS-C crop sensor mirrorless cameras. With low distortion and wide angle, photographers who want wide-angle photos such as landscape and architectural images can create satisfactory images. F2.0 is very bright so it captures clear and vivid images even under relatively dark environment.
For the first time in Samyang Optics history, the independent NCS(Nano Coating System) technology was used. It creates even lower reflection rate than the original UMC (Ultra Multi Coating) and higher contrast. Also, the light penetration rate is very high to minimize flare and ghost. Optical construction of Samyang 12mm F2.0 NCS CS features 12 lenses in 10 groups – among lenses, there are 1 glass aspherical lens(AS), 1 hybrid aspherical lens (H-ASP) and 1 low-dispersion lens (ED) to provide high image quality. H-ASP minimizes colour aberration to realize exceptional image quality and high contrast for centre and corner of image even when aperture is fully opened. ED lowers unnecessary light dispersion to drop colour aberration effectively. With such optical construction, it has 0.2m of minimum focal length.
There are 6 aperture blades designed to be almost as a full circle when aperture is closed which expresses starlike ray clearly and beautifully in deep depth of field images. The frame of Samyang 12mm F2.0 NCS CS is compact and solid since it is made of high-strength aluminium alloy. Trustworthy images can be captured even under inferior environment.
Nano Coating System (NCS) of Samyang Optics
For the first time in Samyang Optics history, NCS(Nano Coating System) is used to lower reflection rate more effectively to provide higher contrast.
Low dispersion lens (ED)
It lowers unnecessary light dispersion to effectively drop colour aberration.
Glass aspherical lens (AS)
It minimizes colour aberration to realize exceptional image quality and high contrast for centre and corner of image even when aperture is fully opened.
Aperture closed to circle shape
6 aperture blades create almost a full circle when closed and express ray beautifully as starlight.
