Samyang 12mm F/2 NCS Lens
For Micro Four-Thirds Mount
The Samyang 12mm F/2 NCS is a wide prime designed for cameras with a Four-Thirds (2X) sensor. This bright prime has a 12mm focal-length. It provides the same field of view as a 24mm lens on a Full-Frame camera.
This prime can focus down to 20cm from the imaging plane. The lens is not capable of autofocus and so the focus-distance must always be manually adjusted via the focus-ring.
This version has a Micro Four-Thirds lens mount. Follow this link for all current compatible digital cameras: Micro Four-Thirds mount cameras. Samyang also made this lens available for Fujifilm X, Canon M, Sony E mounts.
