The new Samyang 12mm 1:2.8 ED AS NCS Fish-eye is a new wide-angle fisheye lens designed specifically for full-frame cameras

The new lens boasts a 180-degree angle of view, and will be officially introduced at Photokina next week on September 16.

Optically it consists of 12 lens elements in eight groups, three of which are made from low-dispersion ED glass and two of which are aspherical. This should minimise chromatic aberration.

Samyang says that these coatings, plus the maximum aperture of f/2.8, should make the lens an ideal companion in low light.

Like previous Samyang lenses, the 12mm fish-eye features nanocrystal and anti-reflection NCS coatings.

Release date and retail pricing for the Samyang 12mm 1:2.8 ED AS NCS Fish-eye are yet to be announced.
