Feel the wide-angle universe in a mirrorless camera!
The Samyang 12mm T2.2 Cine NCS CS lens is a wide-angle mirrorless video lens designed for APS-C crop sensors. The T-number representing actual amount of light transmission is marked on the lens to assist more accurate shooting. A distinguishing focus ring gear is suitable for follow focus system, and uncoupled aperture ring controls aperture quietly during shooting for precise operation. The lens is operated under manual aperture system with low T-number which enables natural shooting under various light exposure circumstances.
For the first time in Samyang Optics history, Nano Coating System (NCS) is used to provide the best quality image with low reflection rate.
This lens shows an exceptional optical performance especially in light transmission. The optical construction of the Samyang 12mm T2.2 Cine NCS CS lens features 12 lenses in 10 groups – among the lenses, there are 1 hybrid aspherical lens (H-ASP), 1 glass aspherical lens (AS) and 3 low-dispersion glass lenses (ED) capturing high quality image. H-ASP revises the colour aberration to realise exceptional image quality and contrast throughout centre to corner of image when aperture is fully opened. ED lowers colour aberration effectively by minimising the unnecessary light dispersion. With such optical construction, 0.2m of the minimum focusing distance is provided.
There are 6 aperture blades designed to be almost a full circle when the aperture is closed which expresses starlike ray clearly and beautifully. The frame of the lens is compact and solid since as is made of high-strength aluminium alloy. Trustworthy images can be captured even under inferior environments. Also, the detachable petal-shaped lens hood minimises flare and ghost by sheltering the lens from unnecessary light.
