Samyang 12mm f/2.0 overview

  • 1Description

The silver 12mm f/2.0 NCS CS Lens for Fujifilm X-Mount from Samyang is a wide-angle prime lens designed specifically for use with APS-C format image sensors. Providing a 35mm-equivalent focal length of 18mm and a broad 98.9° angle of view, this lens is well-suited for architectural, interior, and landscape images. Its fast f/2.0 maximum aperture is beneficial to working in low-light conditions.

One aspherical element, one hybrid aspherical element and three elements made of low dispersion glass have been incorporated into the optical design to minimize chromatic aberrations and distortion for sharper, high contrast imaging throughout the frame. Additionally, a Nano Coating System (NCS) has been applied to the lens elements in order to reduce surface reflections and prevent lens flare and ghosting. A six-blade aperture closes to create a near full circle and the lenses minimum focus distance is 7.9".  The lens barrel is built with aluminum alloy with a 67mm diameter filter thread and includes a removable petal-style lens hood.

Wide-angle prime lens provides a 35mm-equivalent focal length of 18mm for comprehensive wide-angle applications including architectural and landscape photography.
Fast f/2.0 maximum aperture benefits working in low-light conditions.
Three extra-low dispersion elements, one hybrid aspherical element and an aspherical element reduce chromatic aberrations and distortions in order to produce sharper images from the center to the corner of the image frame.
Nano Coating System improves light transmission and suppresses lens flare and ghosting for more contrast-rich, color-neutral images.
Durable aluminum alloy build and included removable petal-style lens hood.

    Samyang 12mm f/2.0 reviews

    12mm f/2.0 NCS CS Lens for Fujifilm X-Mount (Silver) is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 30.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Save the money on Fujifilm glass and buy this! I can't stress how awesome this lens is for the price. I do real estate photography on the side and had originally purchased the Fujifilm 10-24 f/4 lens for $1000. After doing some research, I came across this 12mm lens and I couldn't be happier. Not only is it great for real estate, but it's also f/2 so I can use it for astrophotography and a wide variety of other scenarios as well. Not to mention the price is less than half of the Fujifilm 10-24. One thing to keep in mind is this lens doesn't have autofocus and it is full manual. I found this to be a non-issue. With focus peaking on my Fuji, I can easily see what's in focus if I'm shooting anything relatively close up. For everything else, just set this a little bit before infinity and you're good to go.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Snappy wide angle - much cheaper than Fuji! I am in love with this lens. I haven't had it for too long now, and it is my first wide angle, so I am still figuring how it is best used, but I am enjoying the heck out of making some awesome, sharp-to-the-edges landscape images. I bought it because of the price - I have been rapidly expanding my Fuji kit and I just couldn't swing the cost of another Fuji lens, but this one definitely does the job for an avid hobbyist like me. The aperture ring is stiff and sturdy. I don't mind manual focus in general (though I'm getting a lot of use out of that focus assist button) and most landscapes are focused at/near infinity anyway. I noticed that the bubble/dome of glass caught many raindrops (in a light rain) in a way that a flat lens wouldn't.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just what I needed for landscape photography As a Fuji X user I wanted a wide angle lens but one that was fast and would double for astro-photography. This covered both needs. Although I would have liked auto-focus and this is my first manual lens, it is easy to focus a 12mm with or without focus peaking. I considered the Rokinion 12mm for more, but B&H recommended the Samyang as they are the same lens, just different label. The build quality is excellent although using a plastic body it feels great in the hands, focus and aperture rings are smooth. I'm pleased with the pictures I have taken although I'm not a pixel peeper it is perfect for what I purchased it for. I still have my heart set on the Fuji 10-24 but at close to a grand and much heavier, the Samyang will join the Fuji 35mm in my backpack for when I head out on hikes.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Yes! Go for it! At this price, it's a no brainer. Fuji owners, you need a sharp, affordable wide angle lens, and here it is! Look, your 18-55mm kit lens is amazing, but 18mm is not wide enough for those indoor jobs or those extreme almost-fish eye perspectives. The breathtaking Fujinon 16mm is for a distant future, when you suddenly start making serious money. In the meantime, for the price of a couple of filters, a camera strap and a tripod, you can get this little beauty. Fit on my X-T1 and my X-pro1 was not as tight as original Fujinon lenses, but really really good enough. Maybe a tenth of a millimeter jiggle. Come on, you can live with that. The build quality is great, the focus ring is smooth but firm, the front filter with its 67mm diameter makes this the widest x-mount lens I own, but the rest of the barrel is still handy and small. Focussing with a wide (wide!) angle is no big deal, you can basically point and shoot in the streets at a medium f stop and never worry about the missing auto focus. Is this lens truly identical with the Rokinon of the same specs? B&H people didn't know the answer. To me, that means: The answer is not important. So unless someone A-Bs them and finds the other one vastly superior, I'll be happy about the money I saved.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from A little disappointed I purchased this to do astro photography because it was rated at f/2 which would give me two full stops more light than my Fujifilm XF10-24mm f/4 zoom. However I found that at f/2 it was quite soft at the edges and there was also some coma and slight CA away from center. It does get better at f/2.8 and is really good at f/4 but at that point it offers no advantage over my XF10-24mm which is excellent even wide open (mind you, it's more than three times the price!). That's not to say that this lens is not useable. If I didn't already have the XF10-24mm then I would be able to get good use of this lens for architectural photography and other ultra wide applications. It's just not working to well for my original purpose. So, yes I might recommend it to a friend but only with the above-mentioned caveats.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Useful yet fun lens I purchased this product for an upcoming trip to Barcelona, a city of very interesting architecture, to help in my documenting some of the beauty there. I have been familiarizing myself with this lens on my Fuji X Pro 1 by making (mostly landscape) images, utilizing something of interest in the foreground as well as the background. Of note is that with this particular camera the lens is not autofocus and I have come to realize that by putting the focus just under the leg of the ell of infinity, anything from about 3-1/2 feet to infinity will be focussed at f11 or smaller. Focus ring is smooth and aperture clicks are not soft, just right for my use. My one complaint is the wide silver band near the mount of the lens. I would have preferred it to be less wide and/or black to help in not attracting attention. This is a sharp lens and wide enough for my intentions at a great price.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent bargain lens but looks odd In another life I used a Samyang/Rokinon lens for Nikon and loved the resulting photos. This time I tried the 12mm f/2.0 for my Fuji and found the results to be also excellent. The lens seems very sharp across the field except for the corners wide open. They sharpen up nicely when stopped down to about f/4. Focus is a little stiff but very smooth. It should loosen up with use. A great bargain for little money. The only thing I find curious is that I ordered a black lens to match my black camera and this lens is 3/4 black and the 1/4 at the bottom is shinning chrome. Huh?

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from One AMAZING little lens. This lens comes in many mounts. I can only speak for the Fuji version and only on an X-T2 body. As a professional photographer, this lens is very surprisingly good for and wide angle application, specifically real estate shooting. My copy has virtually no distortion and it tack sharp at f2.8 to about f11. While is a manual lens (focus, f/stop, no image stabilization ) I started shooting as a kid in 1965 and that's all I knew. So for me, it's 'normal'. Besides, one should learn how to shoot in full manual mode. It's very small, light and seems to be well built. Of course I'm sure a Leica or Zeiss will outlast it but then again, you can purchase 3 or 4 of these for the price of one good Leica lens. B&H has a great return policy, so this is certainly worth trying. You may be very surprised and pleased.
