Capture more delicate and wider world with extra-wide-angle lens

  • Manual Focus System

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.

It is an interesting fact that lately independent producers have been launching very original optical instruments and facing huge challenges. Sigma has produced excellent A series ‘primes’, Tamron has introduced on the market such rare devices as the 150-600 or the 16-300 mm, something you cannot...

ePHOTOzine

Overall, this is an excellent optic that produces images with excellent sharpness, low distortion and low CA. Also, what makes this lens especially interesting is the low price of around £330, which is £170 less than the closest equivalent.

I use this with my X-T2 and the focus peaking on that makes it very easy to use. The focus ring is very smooth. The aperture ring is also solid and don't think I would ever accidentally knock it. The only downside is shooting into the sun you get purple chromatic aberation in the image.

This is a very well built lens . It is a small, light prime wide angle that fits in well with my Olympus kit .It is great value for money. The only downside is that it is entirely manual in operation- both in exposure and focus, which takes a little bit of getting used to - but fine once you have.

I was looking for a good all round compact travel lens for landscape photos mainly but other general stuff. This lens has proved to be better than I was hoping for. It gives beautifully rendered photos and it will be my main lens now on my 6500.

On mft bodies it\'s devilishly sharp edge to edge. Yet it retains a bit of barrel distortion and vignetting wide open. Not too much, just enough to give it a special rendering. Love it.

Only had the chance to use the lens a few times. Great results, far better than I had expected.

Best Buy this year and what a pleasant surprise. A fast lens which is light and produces great shape photos from corner to corner. The manual focus is almost a bonus as it forces you to think a little though depth of field is huge it hardly ever matters.

For the price its a great lens. I would recommend it... In my opinion the MF combined with this focal lenght is better than AF.
