The Samyang 12mm f2.0 NCS CS superwide lens fills a gap in lenses for APS-C mirrorless cameras. This lens has been designed to perform stunningly with high resolution sensors (above 24m pixels). As with other Samyang lenses, the 12mm provides technical parameters and potential that can easily compete with the best wide-angle prime and zoom lenses available on the market. It has nanocrystal anti-reflective coatings applied. to two lens elements. This type of coating gives smaller reflection factor than (U)MC layers plus other benefits which include: much better light transmission, higher resistance to reflections and higher contrast, which adds to optical resolution of the lens. The Samyang 12mm f2.0 NCS CS is a perfect lens for landscape photography and can be useful in interior and architecture photography or astrophotography.

It has a good wide field of view and I used it a fair bit on a recent trip to Skye (see attached photo for an example). There is some purple fringing on some of the very high contrast shots, eg branches against overexposed clouds etc, but on the whole it controls flare and aberration very well. It is noticeably sharper than the 16-50. I am so pleased with how easy it is to use on the a6000 that I am thinking of getting another Samyang lens.
I've added a couple pictures of the aurora borealis taken with this lens attached to a Fuji X-T1.
This is of course a fully manual lens, so you focus by eye or using the handy distance scale marked on the lens barrel. Aperture is set with a nicely sturdy ring and focus is smooth and solid.
Even on the Fuji crop sensor this qualifies as an ultra wide lens, allowing for strong landscape composition or dramatic looming close up photography. I enjoy shooting old ruined cars and the like from a couple of feet away and getting the whole thing in frame and sharply in focus. The lens also works brilliantly for street photography as you can get right in amidst the action without people feeling self conscious as they don't realise how wide your frame is.
As an ultra wide lens, focus is very easy because of the great depth of field - above f:4 virtually everything is in focus unless you get very close. This means you don't miss auto focus at all. The lens makes very sharp images with plenty of contrast, and when held level, there is virtually no distortion - angle up or down and you get converging verticals typical of a lens of this sort.
There is some flare but this is controlled well with the lens cap. Because this is an f:2 lens you can shoot wide open in low light relatively easily, and it's also great for astro photography because you can get a relatively fast exposure without pumping up the ISO too much. At the same time, it is just possible to achieve a gentle bokeh effect if you shoot at f:2 with your subject very close.
I tend to use this, my 35mm f:1.Read more ›
This lens is also available for various other manufacturers of cameras and is specifically for the APS-C/Mirrorless models. The focus ring is nice and smooth, aperture ring moves nicely in steps and the whole lens feels very sturdy but can look a little 'cheap' but don't let that put you off, picture quality is very good especially in low light and doing star shots. Auto focus will not work when using this lens but manual focusing works well and is pretty easy especially if your camera will let you zoom onto an area and focus assist with 'Peaking' enabled to see what is in focus. The Infinity marker on the barrel of the lens is a little off but it's not an issue to set this manually.
For a wide angle lens with this aperture and quality optics the price of this lens is a bargain and i highly recommend this for astrophotography, It's sturdy too, I've dropped mine a couple of times with no ill effects. This manufacturer is also known by the name of Rokinon depending on where in the world you are so if you see the same lens with this name you know why. A great lens, a little cheap looking but sturdy and takes great night time photos. Recommended.
