Samyang has announced the 12mm 1:2.0 NCS CS wideangle lens specially designed for mirrorless cameras with high resolution sensors. The price and availability of the lens are not yet confirmed but going by Samyang’s reputation, it will definitely be an affordable option for mirrorless camera owners.

The lens gives an 18mm equivalent angle of view on cameras with APS-C sensors and 24mm equivalent on Micro Four Thirds camers. The focus and aperture have to be controlled manually. But what has us interested is that the lens has nanocrystal anti-reflective coating on two lens elements which gives better light transmission, resistance to reflections and higher contrast, improving the overall optical resolution of the lens.

With a 67mm filter mount and a compact design, the lens weighs only 245 g and it comes with a removable lens hood. It is a perfect lens for landscape and architectural photography. The 2.0 aperture makes it a great performer in low-light situations such as astrophotography.
