New: Samyang 16mm f/2 ED AS UMC CS lens for APS-C cameras


Last week I mentioned that Samyang will be releasing two new APS-C lenses this summer. According to Samyang's Facebook page, one of the new lenses will be 16mm f/2 ED AS UMC CS. The US price will be $449. Here are the known specs:

  • Rectilinear imaging system
  • 13 elements in 11 groups, 2 aspherical lenses
  • Filter size: 77mm
  • Angle of view: 83.1 degrees for Nikon version and 79.5 for Canon
  • Weight: 571g
  • Available for Canon EF+M, Nikon F, Sony A+NEX, Pentax, Fuji X, Four Thirds, Micro Four Thirds and Samsung NX mounts.
  • The released date will be at the end of June or in mid-July.

Please note that at the 2012 Photokina show Samyang announced a 10mm f/2.8 ED AS UMC CS lens that has not been released yet (for APS-C cameras).

A new Samyang 50mm f/1.2 lens is also on the roadmap for 2014.
