Samyang MF12mm f/2.0 is a representative lens that has been loved by astrophotography and landscape photographers for a long time. This new AF 12mm f/2.0 E adopts the Autofocus system and a new modern design. AF 12mm f/2.0 has outstanding image quality and great edge-to-edge sharpness so you can capture the starry night even wide open.
Weighing only 213g and measuring only 59.2mm in length, this new 12mm strikes the perfect balance of portability and outstanding performance and is the lightest and smallest AF 12mm lens currently in the market.
Lens construction consists of 12 elements in 10 groups with 5 special glasses ( 1 H-ASP, 1 ASP, and 3 ED); three extra-low dispersion elements and the two aspherical ( H-ASP & ASP) elements have been incorporated into the optical design to minimize chromatic aberrations and distortion in order to produce sharper images.
UMC (Ultra Multi Coating) has been applied to the lens elements in order to reduce surface reflections and prevent lens flare and ghosting and to give better light transmission and more contrast.
Thanks to the optical construction the lens delivers an outstanding image quality from center to the edges of the frame, even at f/2.0 maximum aperture.
Housing is all metal and the lens is weather-sealed to ensure use even in the harsh weather conditions.
