New product for Photokina 2012

United Kingdom, September 14th 2012 - Samyang Optics is thrilled to introduce a prototype version of the Samyang 10mm f/2.8 ED AS UMC CS lens. The lens will be on show at Photokina 2012, held in Cologne.

The Samyang 10mm f/2.8 ED AS UMC CS is an ultra wide-angle prime lens designed for use with cameras that have APS-C / DX sensors. Its extremely short focal length and rectilinear imaging system ensure a wide angle of view, amounting to 110 degrees (~107 degree for Canon version). As a result the lens is a comprehensive tool for architecture and landscape photography. The Samyang 10mm f/2.8 ED AS UMC CS gives an equivalent focal length of 15mm (or 16mm in the case of Canon EOS) in 35mm terms.

All details concerning the optical construction and available mounts will be published at a later date. The lens will be available at the end of 2012.

Finally, Samyang is interested in making affordable lens for ASP-C users! I have been waiting for such kind of lens for a long time.

Now, amateur photographers do not need to pay a huge budget for professional lenses, in stead, Samyang provides the optical equivalent at good price.

I hope own this lens soon!

Excellent news for serious amateurs like me who operates on limited budget. Given the high quality and the competitively priced famous 8mm fish-eye of theirs, sold by other brands like Rokinon and Bower, there is now hope, or should I say, light, that they will give us a high quality product wide angle at affordable price. Great Samyang! We are eagerly awaiting.
