Samyang 12mm f/2.8 Fisheye Overview

The 12mm f/2.8 ED AS NCS Fisheye Lens for Pentax K Mount from Samyang provides a 180º diagonal angle of view on full-frame cameras for an ultra-wide angle, distorted perspective that is useful for architectural interiors, landscapes and creative experimentation in any photographic application. The f/2.8 maximum aperture is effective in low-light situations and enables some measure of shallow depth of field control. 

The lens's sophisticated optical design consists of 12 lens elements arranged in 8 groups including three elements made of low dispersion ED glass and two aspherical lens elements to minimize coma and chromatic aberrations. The Nano Coating System (NCS) lowers reflections to provide increased contrast. Its internal focus system enables its compact design and keeps the front element from extending during focus.

As a manual focus, manual aperture lens, it offers a wide, easy to grip focus ring and bright aperture, distance and depth of field markings. A removable petal-shaped lens hood and a carrying pouch are included.

An ultra wide-angle fisheye lens with a 12mm focal length on full-frame cameras and an 18mm equivalency when used on APS-C format cameras. Its distorted perspective is useful for interiors, landscapes, group shots and many creative wide-angle applications.
Extra low dispersion and aspherical lens elements reduce aberrations for sharp, color-accurate imaging.
Manual focus lens with an internal focus system and wide, rubberized focus ring.
Manual aperture control with bright markings for aperture, distance and depth of field.
Sturdy metal barrel with removable petal-shaped lens hood.

I plan to use it for 360° Virtual Tours in a Nikon D810. If I shoot vertical i will get 180° top to bottom and what angle i cover for the sphere horizontally?
Asked by: jaime
Technically, If you take one shot vertically, then rotate 180, and take another, that would give you a 360 view. To make it more seamless, I would take 4-6 shots and stitch them using a 360 stitching software to reduce distortion and provide more detail.

Is the lens hood removable?

Is the lens hood removable?
Asked by: Dan
Yes, the bayonet lens hood included with the Samyang 12mm f/2.8 ED AS NCS Fisheye Lens for Sony E Mount is removable. To connect the lens hood to the lens, you would align the attachment reference point on the hood with the hood reference point on the front of the lens, then push the lens hood onto the lens and turn the hood clockwise until it clicks into place. To remove the lens hood from the lens, you would simply reverse the process.

Will this work well when stitched for 360 deg panoramas?
Asked by: Don
If you are using software that works with fish-eye lenses that lens can work. Otherwise use a wide lens that is not a fish eye.
