Exceptional focal length with high speed
The 12mm/2.8 from Samyang is a full-frame outstanding fisheye lens. With a diagonal angle of view of approx. 180° in full format, it brings a huge field of view and is therefore perfectly suited for overviews, interiors, confined spaces, as well as for reportage in such places. The lens puts the subject in the right light. With a lens speed of 1:2.8, the lens has a large initial aperture. Due to the short focal length and the low magnification, it is characterised by a very large depth of field.
The lens is internally focused with a closest focusing distance of approx. 20 centimetres. The optical construction with 12 lenses in 8 groups is very sophisticated and promises the best imaging performance. The multiple coating of all lenses used in the lens with the in-house Ultra Multi Coating (UMC) is standard at Samyang. It enables a higher light yield, better colour rendering and higher contrast. In addition, one glass surface is coated with NCS Nano Coating System, which promises an even more brilliant image.
Advantages of a full-frame lens on a camera with an APS-C sensor
Save time in post-processing: A large number of lens errors such as distortion, edge blur or vignetting occur on the outer areas of the image. If you use a lens calculated for full format on a camera with an APS-C sensor, these areas are not used at all. This way you get the maximum quality. Additional post-processing time to correct lens errors is therefore unnecessary.
