The new Samyang 12 mm gives a wide angle of view amounting to 98.9 degrees and rectilinear image mapping function. Owing to a large aperture range of f/2.0, the lens offers a high image quality even in poor lightning conditions. Optical construction of the lens comprises 12 elements divided into 10 groups, these components include one aspherical lens (ASP) and one hybrid aspherical lens (H-ASP).
