Expanded Samyang AF 12mm f2 Lens for Sony E Key Features:

Intricate Lens Structure

Samyang has continued its trend of complex and advanced lens structures, and with good reason; it results in incredible high-quality images from very affordable and accessible lenses. The structure of this lens is made up of twelve premium lens elements that are arranged into ten groups. Within the twelve elements, there are five special lenses: three Extra-Low Dispersion lenses (ED) and two Aspherical lenses (H-ASP & ASP), and together these elements heavily contribute to the overall image quality, significantly reduces the appearance of chromatic aberrations and lens distortions. In addition to this, Samyang has included a redesigned Ultra Multi Coating (UMC) to each element which reduces surface reflections and prevents lens flare and ghosting.

Made for Fast & Quiet AF

Complementing Sony’s autofocus systems, this lens can provide impressively fast and accurate autofocus that is also smooth and near-silent. This is thanks to the use of a redesigned STM (stepping motor) autofocus system that is able to more precisely and quietly drive the larger focus-lens group. This ultimately results in more accurate AF acquisition but also allows this lens to be used in a variety of situations, including in those where discretion is important.

Wide, Bright and Fast Aperture

The title says it all - This lens offers a wide, bright and fast maximum f2 aperture that allows for more control and efficient low-light shooting, as well as more effective use of faster shutter speeds. Aside from this, having such a wide aperture also makes for enhanced control of depth-of-field, allowing you to have effective control of subject background separation. Additionally, this lens is able to produce large, round and beautifully smooth bokeh that further increases the versatility of the lens.
