New Samyang AF 12mm f2 E Lens – For Photographers Who Want An Astrophotography-Centric Lens

Table of Contents

This new prime lens the Samyang AF 12mm f2 E is the world’s first Autofocus 12mm lens compatible Sony APS-C e-mount mirrorless cameras for optimal performace. It’s the only option for APS-C users who want an ultra-wide-angle autofocus lens.

The bright F2 aperture guarantees faster shutter speed in low light condition while capturing astrophotography or nightscapes. 5 special glasses (1 H-ASP, 1 ASP, and 3 ED) in this lens deliver exceptional resolution from the centre to the corners, minimizing optical aberration.

The Samyang MF 12mm F2.0, was one of Samyang’s bestsellers, now adopting the Autofocus system – it’s a perfect match for a compact APS-C camera with a gimbal since it’s very compact and lightweight.

It includes a new modern design to meet photographers’ needs, such as a matt finishing and a hidden red ring with an ergonomically designed grip and a micro pattern rubber ring that maximizes usability. A weather-sealing feature and a rear protective glass prevent dust, light rain, and snow from penetrating.

This really is the ‘Astrophotography-Centric’ lens for the photographers who want both astrophotography and an Autofocus system. The Samyang AF 12mm f2 E Lens is now available for order at Campkins Cameras with the expected release in the first week of May.
