Samyang 16mm f/2.0 Overview

  • 1Description

The 16mm f/2.0 ED AS UMC CS Lens for Sony E Mount from Samyang is a manual focus wide-angle prime lens compatible with APS-C format mirrorless digital cameras. It provides an 83.1° angle of view which translates into a 35mm format equivalency of 24mm. A 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 flares.

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 flares

    Samyang 16mm f/2.0 Reviews

    16mm f/2.0 ED AS UMC CS Lens for Sony E Mount is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 2.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Low Light Lens I bought this lens as soon as it became available hoping I could check it off from my my low light, wide angle wish list. I can now say it has fulfilled my expections and is now off that list. It stays sharp throughout the entire viewing area, even at its widest aperture of 2.0. You have to manually set aperture and focus, no problem if you are filming with somewhat constant distance to your subject and under similar ighting conditions. I use it with my new Sony VG-30 camcorder, comes with Sony E-Mount, fits perfectly, no need for adapters. I stays on my camcorder all the time for steadicam shots, looks fantastic and not at all like fisheye. For normal lighting changes during shot, you can use combination of auto gain/auto shutter on camcorder to compensate for manual iris ring on lens. Average weight, professional build, really nice lens for the money.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from One of my favourite lenses! What do I have to say... I love that lens! I've had it for about a year now, and it's a great lens. It's very sharp, even at f/2 (the corners get sharper as you stop down, but even at f/2, they're pretty good!), it's well built, it feels nice and solid, the focus ring dampening is really good. There's some vignetting, but it's nothing terrible, and the distortion isn't bad either. You have to watch out for flare, thought. If you're using it for night photography, it can be worth bringing black cardboard and tape to make a bigger lens hood. In most situations the provided lens hood is enough, but if you're doing a long exposure, or star trails, over time, the rays of light coming from street lights and lit signs can kinda cumulate and show in the final result, so be mindful of that. Besides that, I think it's a really good lens. Not for those who need small a small lens with AF, but if you need optical and build quality, the Samyang/Rokinon 16mm f/2 is a lens of choice.
