Samyang has introduced its new 12mm F2.0 AF lens for Fujifilm X mount digicam methods, which affords a full-frame equal focal size of 18mm. This compact ultrawide lens seems to be a barely tweaked model of the APS-C Sony E mount 12mm F2 lens revealed earlier this yr.

Like its E mount predecessor, the X mount 12mm F2 AF lens is constructed of 12 components in 10 teams, together with three extra-low dispersion components, one hybrid-aspherical aspect and one aspherical aspect. Samyang can also be utilizing an ‘superior model’ of its Extremely Multi Coating (UMC) to scale back flaring and ghosting.

Different options embrace an F2 via F22 aperture vary, a seven-blade aperture diaphragm, a 62mm filter thread and a minimal focusing distance of 19cm (7.5”). The lens makes use of Samyang’s Linear Stepping Motor (STM) for driving its single-group autofocus and measures 70mm (2.75″) in diameter, 59.2mm (2.33″) in size and weighs 213g (7.5oz).

The Samyang 12mm F2.0 AF lens is presently out there to pre-order for $500 on Samyang’s on-line store and thru licensed Samyang (and Rokinon) retailers.
