Samyang 12mm f/2

I was delighted when this lens arrived. It is absolutely wonderful and along with a couple of others, it helped sway me to try mirrorless. This is such a lovely lens that gives wonderful image quality that beats any zooms that cover that focal length and it also beats many primes that cost much more!

It has a really smooth focus ring and mounted on my Sony A6000, using the focus assist, it is a dream to use.

It is a 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 color aberration to realize exceptional image quality and high contrast for center and corner of image even when aperture is fully opened. ED lowers unnecessary light dispersion to drop color 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 aluminum alloy. Trustworthy images can be captured even under inferior environment. Also, petal-shaped lens hood to shelter lens from unnecessary light is provided.

Available for 5 camera mounts: Canon-M, Sony-E, MFT, Samsung NX, and Fujifilm-X

It comes with a Petal lens hood and takes 67mm filters.
