The affordable Samyang 16mm F2.0 ED AS UMC CS is a sharp, fast wide-angle lens for APS-C SLRs and mirrorless cameras.
Nice price. Quite sharp. Focuses to 7.9 inches. Available for multiple systems.
Doesn't cover a full-frame image sensor. Manual focus isn't for everyone. Omits optical stabilization. Some fall-off at corners.
In conclusion, we have once again taken a hard look a Samyang lens and determined that it delivers quite good image quality for a low price. And, as usual for these lenses, there are features lacking, including autofocus.
Over the length of this lens review, we’ve delved into the intricacies of optical performance and the handling nuances of the Samyang 16mm F2.0 ED AS UMC CS wide-angle prime lens. This lens is exceptional by most measures, and deserves a nod from the Pentax community.
Fast F2.0 aperture, Pleasant bokeh, Exceedingly sharp across the frame, Minimal barrel distortion, Great contrast, Ghosting and flare resistance, Great starbursts in daylight, Aperture ring control and automatic aperture control (supports M, A/Av, S/Tv, and P), Affordable at $479 or less
Difficult to fine focus in viewfinder due to wide-angle and large depth of field, Prominent vignetting up to F2.8, Sub-optimal flare control in harsh light, No in-camera lens correction profile, Swirl bokeh when used wide open, 1 year U.S. warranty
Handling and features This manual focus wide angle lens for APS-C format cameras, offers a fast f/2 maximum aperture for a budget launch price of around £419.
The Samyang 16 mm f/2.0 ED AS UMC CS is a really well-made construction. For a very sensible price of 1500 PLN you get a lens with interesting parameters, able to provide a sharp image across the frame, correcting most of optical aberrations in a proper way.
excellent image quality in the frame centre,, good image quality on the edge of the frame,, slight chromatic aberration – both lateral and longitudinal,, good correction of spherical aberration,, negligible astigmatism,, advantageous price/quality and price/ability ratios.
weak performance against bright light,, distinct vignetting at the maximum relative aperture.
Those looking for wide aperture lenses for the APS-C or smaller format camera need not continue looking at full frame lenses, that generally cost and weigh more now this lens is available.
Very good value for money, Excellent sharpness in the centre from maximum aperture, Good build, Very good sharpness towards the edges stopped down to f/4 or beyond
No hyperfocal scale, Petal shaped hood is a little loose
The Rokinon delivers what it promises, a nice wide angle and good build quality. I'm using it on a Canon 70D and it is nice and sharp all the way to the corners. Stop it down to f2.8 and it becomes really sharp.
get one! I love those samyangs! use a Katz Eye and you are a winner
this is just the perfect lens! sharp, contrasty and much much better than any zoom at 16mm; also has close focus; using this on Pentax K3 and it has the right chip for focus confirmation.
The lens is very well built. I use it on a Sony a6000 camera and am pleased with the result.
For all its size and weight, the primary lens in relatively small though the filter ring is 77mm. It is manual focus only, but the aperture ring has a setting that allows for automatic control with Pentax bodies. The Image Quality is good and I didn't see much 'fish-eye' effect.
I recently transitioned from a full frame Canon 5D Mark III to a Micro Four Thirds Panasonic GH4. I wanted a lens that was affordable and equivalent to 35mm on full frame. This lens delivers. I haven't had a chance to test it in a practical settings yet (i.e.
I wish this lens was a little sharper but for the price it does the job. Even in video mode it doesn't seem as sharp as if you got a Canon lens.
Five stars for the image quality and the price , if you purchase this lens you will have to remember what it was like taking photographs before ato everything it is fully manual with no communication to the camera, so it will not suit everyone.
This is a sharp lens. Not as good as canons own 16-35 but not bad considering the cost. This lens has no weather sealing at all. Mine got a load of sand inside and that was from being on top of my bag at the beach and not even on the sand. So beware it is a delicate lens
Great lens with amazing build quality. It is nice and easy to operate.
