Samyang 16mm f/2.0 overview

  • 1Description

The 16mm f/2.0 ED AS UMC CS Lens for Canon from Samyang is a manual focus, wide-angle lens compatible with APS-C format DSLR digital cameras. It provides a 79.5° angle of view which translates into a 35mm format equivalency of 25.6mm. Its fast maximum aperture of f/2.0 is effective in low light shooting and provides shallow depth of field. With two aspherical lens elements and one extra-low dispersion element, chromatic aberrations are minimized and sharp, color-accurate images are the result. UMC lens coating facilitates even light transmission and reduces ghosting and flare.

Wide angle focal length equivalent to 25.6mm in the 35mm format
Fast f/2.0 maximum aperture for effective low light shooting and shallow depth of field
Aspherical and Extra-low Dispersion lens elements reduce aberrations
UMC lens coating allows even light transmission and minimizes ghosting and flare

    Samyang 16mm f/2.0 reviews

    16mm f/2.0 ED AS UMC CS Lens for Canon is rated 4.9 out of 5 by 7.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from well worth the money Shoots very clean and sharp images from corner to corner. A very good buy for the money. Initially, I was not sure about this lens upon recieving it. I couln't seem to get accurate focus regardless of proper manual focus technique. Turns out, my photo review software in the computer was the problem. Once I viewed the images in other software, the images were very crisp and impressive. Well worth the buy.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great lens, worth every penny I use this on my canon 70d for landscape and night pictures and I am very happy with the purchase of this lens. Landscape pictures come out beautiful but this lens shines when used for night & astrophotography! Well worth the investment!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good Lens I use the lens for landscape photography, including panoramic photos. The images I have taken have been very good, although I have not done any quantitative measurements. Manual operation has not been a problem for my applications. Construction seem to be very good, with a good feel. I have not found any problems with the lens during my use.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Fantastic performance First things first: I knew this lens was manual focus and manual aperture when I got it. I have been quite satisfied with the sharpness and color of the images, even wide-open. I can easily get excellent focus for still subjects using 5x or 10x magnification on Live View. I don't really miss autofocus too much, nor do I think I'd pay extra for a chipped version just to get focus confirm. That having been said, on moving subjects such as a cat, it can be difficult to get focused in time to get the shot. This is especially true because as a rather wide lens, it has to be placed close to the subject to get good framing. Turns out my cat just wants to turn away or walk away when I shove a big piece of glass in her face..... I also don't mind the manual aperture ring, in fact it's rather fun. However, I am very particular about knowing what settings were used for every shot so I can learn what worked and what didn't. Unfortunately, this means I live with the hassle of writing down what aperture I used every time. I know Samyang has some lenses with a chip and those all seem to control aperture electronically. I don't need to control aperture from the camera, but it would be nice to have the aperture automatically recorded in the EXIF. If Samyang even just had a version which still used a manual aperture ring but had an encoder to record the setting, I'd buy it. I got this lens primarily for the f/2.0 for astro, but I haven't had a chance to test that fully yet. However I really like that even though the imaging circle is APS-C sized, the rear of this lens does not protrude (unlike Canon EF-S glass). Thus it's possible to use, for instance, an in-body light-pollution-reduction filter using the "EOS APS clip" form factor.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product Highly recommended This lens is amazingly sharp even though it is manual focus with the AF chip I was able to take some amazing photos at an auto racing event. I would recommend this lens any day. Awesome product.
