Combining a wide-angle perspective with a fast maximum aperture, this 12mm f/2.0 AF Compact Ultra Wide-Angle Lens from Samyang is designed for APS-C format Sony E-mount mirrorless cameras and provides an 18mm focal length perspective equivalent to 35mm full-frame format. Two extra-low dispersion elements, one high refractive index element, and one aspherical element are incorporated into the lens construction to help to control aberrations and distortions for increased clarity and sharpness. Ultra Multi-Coating has also been applied to all lens elements to reduce lens flare and ghosting for increased contrast and colour fidelity. The bright f/2.0 maximum aperture excels in difficult lighting conditions and enables greater control over depth of field and focus placement. The Linear STM autofocus motor provides fast, quiet focus, and the lens barrel incorporates a custom function switch and a focus hold button for optimal focus control. The seven-blade diaphragm to produce a quality of bokeh.
Perfect APS-C Super-Wide-Angle Autofocus Prime Lens for Astrophotography
The existing Samyang manual focus 12mm F2.0 is a benchmark lens that has been loved by astrophotography enthusiasts for years. The new AF 12mm F2.0 E adopts the Autofocus system and a new modern design that goes beyond the frame of the existing manual focus model; it is even more optimised for astrophotography, adding convenience and functionality.
The AF 12mm F2.0 delivers outstanding image quality, so you can capture the starry night so much clearer than with any smartphone. Incorporating 5 special elements (1 H-ASP, 1 ASP, and 3 ED) plus Ultra Multi-Coating, it achieves exceptional image resolution from the centre to the edges of the frame, even at its F2.0 maximum aperture. With the advanced optical design, Minimum Focusing Distance is just 19cm, so you can easily capture close-ups and indoor images with reduced backlight haze.
Bright F2.0 Aperture with Impressive Shallow Depth of Field and Bokeh
The AF 12mm F2.0 E lens offers a bright F2.0 aperture which guarantees faster shutter speeds in low light conditions and helps improve astrophotography. Furthermore, during the daytime, the F2 aperture adds depth to your wide-angle images by blurring the background. The subject and background are effectively separated, creating an impressive sense of depth. The large, round bokeh presents calm background blurring and high contrast, to achieve the optimal balance.
Fast and Quiet Auto Focus System
Autofocus is now expected to capture images accurately and quickly, but it also needs to be quiet and smooth. Thanks to the newly researched and developed STM (Stepping Motor), a larger focus-lens group can be controlled more quietly and precisely, providing superb image quality in both photo and video use.
Compact Size & Lightweight with New Design
Weighing in at just 213g and measuring only 59.2mm in length, this new 12mm strikes the perfect balance of portability and outstanding performance. It is the lightest and smallest AF 12mm lens currently in the market. This lens includes useful new design features such as a durable, all-metal housing, an ergonomically designed grip with a micro pattern rubber ring and a new modern design with a 'hidden' red ring. The AF 12mm F2.0 E features weather-sealing and rear glass protection, to prevent dust, light rain, and snow from penetrating. This allows you to capture stunning images in less than perfect conditions.
