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.

Samyang 16mm f/2.0 Reviews
Wonderful Wide Angle Lens
Hey, this is a great wide angle lens. Works great with my Canon, and it allowing me to take my landscape pictures to the next level.
Love this lens for landscape photography. Fun to use and quick. A bit heavy but definitely worth it
Nice & sharp
nice for Milky Way shots, good price
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.
Image doesn't match the product, but still a great lens!
The problem is that the image on the website shows a 35mm version of this lens and not the Mirrorless (X mount) I bought. Why does this matter, well the lens has the equivalent of a 35mm to mirrorless adapter between the aperture ring and the lens mount. So the lens becomes Huge!!! The good news is that the image quality is excellent and the build quality is much nicer than the 12mm (also a great, sharp lens). if you like to shoot wide, like a fast lens and don't mind the size (or the manual focus) you will love the results you get from this lens
Great lens for this price
I bought this lens mainly for night sky photography- and it's doing an amazing job! Even at f2 the center is incredible sharp (but the edges are a bit blurry) and it great to photograp the Milkyway. I also use it for landscape photos during the day at f5.6-11.... it's extremly sharp (even the edges are incredible sharp). Overall- if you don't want to spend $1000+ this is probably one of the best fast APSC Wide Angle lenses. I can recommend it to everybody who is intrested in a good wide angle lens and doesn't want to spend too much money!
Fantastically sharp, and easy to focus, being wide lens. I also like rendering in general (and out of focus areas) and punchiness of the micro-contrast. Occasionally rendering reminds me of my Leica Summarit 35 2.5, in terms of micro-contrast. Im not claiming its the same, but that my brain makes that connection, and I especially like Summarit 35 for its pop. Anyhow, I feel this lens is a bit of a hidden jewel. All my comments need to be considered in the context of the price. If price were $1000+, it still would be good lens, but perhaps I would be looking for faults, rather than reasons to love it. Its not small, but its not heavy, so handling is ok ...
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.
