Samyang 12mm f/2.0 NCS CSC is a fast yet compact and lightweight wide-angle lens designed specifically for mirrorless APS-C cameras. It provides an image angle of 98.9 degrees, equivalent to an 18mm lens mounted on a full-size camera. Also available with mount for Micro Four Thirds (Olympus and Panasonic).
The short focal length and high optical quality make the Samyang 12mm f/2.0 NCS CSC the perfect lens for landscape, travel, interior design and architecture photography. With a fast maximum aperture of f/2.0 it is also ideal for astrophotography. In addition, the lens can be used with filters (67 mm filter thread) and comes with a detachable hood.
Technically, this is one of Samyang’s most advanced lenses. The barrel is made of high-strength aluminum alloy and the optical design consists of 12 elements divided into 10 groups. This includes both an aspheric element (ASP) and a hybrid-aspheric element (H-ASP) to provide maximum sharpness throughout the image even at large apertures.
Three elements of extra low-dispersion ED glass counteract chromatic aberration. Two of the elements are also treated with Samyang’s latest anti-reflex coating, NCS (Nano Coating System). It contains nanocrystals which, among other things, provide better transmission, increased resistance to reflections and higher contrast than a normal coating. In short, even better picture quality.
