Description

The black 12mm f/2.0 NCS CS Lens for Micro Four Thirds Mount from Samyang is a wide-angle prime lens designed specifically for use with Micro Four Thirds format image sensors. Providing a 35mm-equivalent focal length of 24mm and a broad 83° angle of view, this lens is well-suited for architectural, interior, and landscape images. Its fast f/2.0 maximum aperture is beneficial to working in low-light conditions.

One aspherical element, one hybrid aspherical element and three elements made of low dispersion glass have been incorporated into the optical design to minimise chromatic aberrations and distortion for sharper, high contrast imaging throughout the frame. Additionally, a Nano Coating System (NCS) has been applied to the lens elements in order to reduce surface reflections and prevent lens flare and ghosting. A six-blade aperture closes to create a near full circle and the lenses minimum focus distance is 7.9". The lens barrel is built with aluminium alloy with a 67mm diameter filter thread and includes a removable petal-style lens hood.

Key Features

  • Wide-angle prime lens provides a 35mm-equivalent focal length of 24mm for comprehensive wide-angle applications including architectural and landscape photography.
  • Fast f/2.0 maximum aperture benefits working in low-light conditions.
  • Three extra-low dispersion elements, one hybrid aspherical element and an aspherical element reduce chromatic aberrations and distortions in order to produce sharper images from the centre to the corner of the image frame.
  • Nano Coating System improves light transmission and suppresses lens flare and ghosting for more contrast-rich, colour-neutral images.
  • Durable aluminium alloy build and included removable petal-style lens hood.

    After moving to micro 4/3, I had wanted to purchase this lens in my kit, and it's one of my overall favorites. Whether on my Olympus Pen E-PM1 or OM-D E-M5ii, it lives up to my expectation. While Olympus has a 12mm f/2 with both auto and manual focusing, and Panasonic has a 12mm f/1.4, they're over $1000. I have been able to take great images with this lens. Of course being a budget alternative, the lens will show some chromatic aberrations. The lens has a 67mm filter thread, but the front element is a small aspherical lens (0.5cm away from filter thread), but have used a $20 UV filter on the 67mm thread as a protective element.
