Will it work with Nikon D500?
Asked by: Mitchell
Yes, the Samyang 12mm f/2.8 ED AS NCS Fisheye Lens for Nikon F Mount with AE Chip would be compatible for use with the Nikon D500 DSLR camera. Do note that the above lens is designed for the full-frame sensor, so when used on the APS-C sensor in the Nikon D500, the lens would have an equivalent focal length of an 18mm lens used on a full-frame camera. Also, do note this is a fully manual lens, so you will have to focus the lens manually and set the aperture using the aperture ring built onto the lens, and not the control dials built onto the camera. That being said, manual focus confirmation, automatic exposure information and EXIF data should still be transmitted when using this lens.

I'm still curious as to why the aperture ring has to be turned all the way to f/22 for the Nikon F mount lens to work. Won't the image quality be compromised due to the smaller physical iris set in the lens?
Asked by: Anonymous
If you want AE on a Nikon, set the aperture to f/22. Then the camera will open to whatever stop is needed. That is how things work in Nikon land.
