Samyang 16mm f/2.0 overview

  • 1Description

The 16mm f/2.0 ED AS UMC CS Lens for Nikon from Samyang is a manual focus, wide-angle lens compatible with APS-C format (DX) DSLR digital cameras. It provides an 83.1° angle of view which translates into a 35mm format equivalency of 24mm. 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 24mm 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 Nikon is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 5.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from When you need that aperture... Took this lens out to the middle of the Mojave and it worked great. Unfortunately the moon was out so we couldn't see the milky way, but it still captured a great star field. Much better than if I'd bought the 14mm f/2.8. The aperture is what really makes this lens shine, since it's awkwardly close to 18mm which any APS-C shooter already has. Decent construction, mine didn't have much difficulty mounting to the body (sometimes samyangs or rokinons exhibit a grinding feel). The lens hood feels a tad flimsy, just because it's fitting on such a large diameter lens. Focus marks are pretty accurate, though still takes time to dial in at night because the DOF is so shallow.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from A long awaited APS-C wide-angle prime There has been a lot of talk about a lack of wide-angle (16-18mm) primes for APS-C. It seems all the wide-angle lenses for APS are zooms, and most are F/3.5 or slower. This is my fourth Samyang lens. Samyang produces lenses that have exceptional optics (if you can get a good copy), but are much cheaper than the big name-brands, albeit with manual focus only. However, this lens is unique. Nobody else makes wide angle primes for APS. What really surprised me were the optics wide open. At F/2, there is almost no chromatic aberration (other than easily corrected lateral CA that all wide-angles seem to have). All my other fast glass (F/2 or faster) have lots of longitudinal chromatic aberration that degrades the view, especially in the out-of-focus areas. This lens is almost completely free of this aberration. There are few lenses I have used that are F/2 and faster where F/2 is almost as good as F/5.6. This is one of them. The edges aren't perfect at F/2, but the next fastest 16mm lens is the Tokina 11-16mm, after that, they're all F/3.5 or slower. I used to own the Tokina 11-16mm, and it had significant field curvature at 16mm that this lens lacks. Optically, this lens is better at F/2 than the Tokina was at F/4. Great lens, but a specialized item. One of the best F/2 or faster lenses I've used. For those who care about full-frame equivalency, this will yield photos similar to a 24mm F/2.8 on full-frame.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from For manual focus shooters it is a delight An excellent lens, with great image quality. Very sharp at the widest aperture, which is a huge pro, comparing to other wide-angle lenses. The manual focusing brings a lot of challenges to the autofocus accustomed users; it was indeed a challenge to me, especially focusing at infinity; but with a little practice I managed to nail it. The only con I found was that the lens is very tough to attach. However, this doesn't affect in any way the image quality, so I give this lens 5 stars.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sturdy and Easy To Use I bought this lens about a month and a half ago and so far I am loving it! I use it primarily for landscape shots, and it has been a charm! Very sharp, with a very smooth focus ring and aperture ring. The only think I could complain about is that it is kind of a pain to attach and take off. That could just be me though. Also, it's a nice-looking lens. If I were to buy a lens by looks alone, this would be one of them.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Rediscover Manual Focus lens Great product overall. The only option on APS-C to a Nikon 24 1.4 on FF. Close focus create nice blurred background in a wide composition. Focus ring precise and smooth. Overall construction is solid. Only lens cap need to be replace since it is hard to put on, and impossible with gloves. Great to rediscover manual focus.
