Samyang 12mm f/2.8 Fisheye Overview

The 12mm f/2.8 ED AS NCS Fisheye Lens for Sony E 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 is 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.

Is the lens hood removable?

Is the lens hood removable?
Asked by: Elizabeth
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.

Does this lens give a rectangular or circular image on Sony A7 series cameras?

The lens on a full frame camera is not round. It has distortion as all fisheye lenses share.

Will this lens communicate with the S1/S1H? Metering info?
Asked by: jacob
The Samyang 12mm f/2.8 ED AS NCS Fisheye Lens for Canon EF Mount (B&H# SA12F28FFFLC) will not communicate with the camera. Please note that it is currently available for Canon EF, Nikon F, and Pentax K mount cameras. Adapters may be used, however, to get those to work with other cameras -- especially mirrorless ones.

The Samyang 12mm f/2.8 ED AS NCS Fisheye Lens is not weather sealed. In the Canon mount, the only weather sealed option is the Canon EF 8-15mm f/4L Fisheye USM Lens linked here. https://bhpho.to/3lIQTp7

question

Does the Samyang 12mm F/2.8 fisheye mount safely onto the Canon 6D mark 2 which has a larger sensor than the 6D?
Asked by: Cheryl K.
The Canon 6D Mark II's full frame sensor is .1mm larger on both sides than the Canon 6D's full frame sensor. This amount is so small as to not ever be a consideration. You can safely use this lens on either camera.

Will it work with Nikon D500?

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.
