Overall, this is an excellent optic that produces images with excellent sharpness, low distortion and low CA. Also, what makes this lens especially interesting is the low price of around £330, which is £170 less than the closest equivalent.

    Excellent sharpness in the centre from maximum aperture, Very good build quality, Compact, Low CA, Good value

  • -

    Lack of autofocus may put some people off (although it really shouldn’t)

Sample photos taken with the new Samyang 12mm f/2.0 NCS CS Micro Four Thirds lens using the Olympus OM-D E-M1 , taken around Amsterdam. The lens is also available as the Samyang 12mm T2.2 VDSLR lens, with geared focus and click-less aperture control.

It is an interesting fact that lately independent producers have been launching very original optical instruments and facing huge challenges. Sigma has produced excellent A series ‘primes’, Tamron has introduced on the market such rare devices as the 150-600 or the 16-300 mm, something you cannot...

    high quality casing and a proper work of all parts of the lens,, excellent image quality in the frame centre,, acceptable image quality on the edge of the frame,, proper correction of spherical aberration,, moderate distortion,, negligible astigmatism,, good quality and performance to price ratio.

  • -

    weak performance against bright light,, noticeable vignetting,, a bit too high chromatic aberration,, a significant difference between the performance in the frame centre and on the edge of the frame.

My only gripe is they always want us to review quickly before we've had a lot of time with a product.Shooting for over fifty years, I've used a lot of glass both good and bad. I'm not a pixel peeper, but this is good glass. I love having an actual aperture ring on a lens again.

I wound up with a bad sample. It was incapable of a decent focus at any distance or setting. Even if my sample had been good, I'm not sure how you could achieve a sharp focus on my OM-D E-M5. When focus LOOKED fine, every shot came out fuzzy.

Really good wide angle lens. Sharp, good color, light and smooth focus ring.

Nice lens but I'm struggling a bit still working out how best to use it as it has no coupling with the camera body. I'm hoping to be able to use it at F 11 between 10" and infinity and get super depth of field. So far, I haven't found the magic settings....

I've had the lens for about 6 months, now, and really like it.As a Sony a6000 owner, I have had great luck with this lens taking pictures at night. 20 seconds more or less wide open at ISO 1600-3200 is a great place to start for stars and thunderstorms.

Don't delay in buying this lens. It has quickly become my daily driver. Really well made and sharp. Manual lens but you soon get used to it

Lens is great! No need for auto focus on this focal length. Very sharp, a little vignette but I like that look. Contrast not quite as good as the Zeiss but at a stop faster and a third of the price this is a steal!

I'll keep this brief as I would certainly class myself as an *amateur* photographer. The lens is what I would call 'helpfully' wide, without creating a lot of distortion and making me feel like I ought to crop out the edges. Any minor distortion is easily fixed up in Lightroom.
