Samyang 10mm F2.8 ED AS NCS CS Lens Sony E-Fit
Since showing a prototype of this lens at Photokina 2012, Samyang have carefully refined the design, resulting in the new 10mm f2.8 ED AS NCS CS lens featuring parameters and capabilities comparable to the best wideangle prime and zoom lenses on the market.
This optic is an ideal tool for indoor, architecture, sport, journalism and landscape photography. It provides an exceptionally wide field of view of up to 109.5 degrees and rectilinear image mapping function. Owing to a fast f2.8 lens speed you can also use the lens in low light conditions. The product's optics comprise 14 elements divided into 10 groups, including 2 aspherical AS lenses and one lens made from extra-low dispersion (ED) glass.
This is also the first Samyang lens to feature a nano crystal anti-reflection coating system. This technology provides better light transmission, increased resistance to reflections and higher contrast. All of this translates into the supreme optical resolution of the lens.
It is a extra-wide-angle manual focus lens designed for APS-C crop sensor cameras.
With low distortion and wide angle (109.5°), photographers who want wide-angle photos such as landscape and architectural images can create satisfactory images. F2.8 is very bright even under relatively dark environment, clear and vivid images can be captured.
Optical construction of Samyang 10mm F2.8 ED AS NCS CS features 14 lenses in 10 groups – among lenses, there are 2 glass aspherical lenses(AS) and 1 low-dispersion glass(ED). It realized the minimum focal length of 0.24m.
Also, for the first time in Samyang Optics history, the independent NCS(Nano Coating System) was used. It creates even lower reflection rate than the original UMC (Ultra Multi Coating) and higher contrast. Also, the light penetration rate is very high to minimize flare and ghost.
There are 6 aperture blades designed to be almost as a full circle when aperture is closed which expresses starlike ray clearly and beautifully in deep depth of field image. The frame of Samyang 10mm F2.8 ED AS NCS CS is compact and solid since it is made of high-strength aluminum alloy. Trustworthy images can be captured even under inferior environment. Also, petal-shaped lens hood to shelter lens from unnecessary light is provided.
