8mm f/2.8 ED AS IF UMC Fisheye
Samyang UK has announced the new Samyang 8mm f/2.8 ED AS IF UMC Fisheye Lens for Sony NEX and Samsung NX cameras, with 12mm equivalent and f/2.8 aperture it is the brightest and smallest currently available. The lens will be available for £279 in early July.

United Kingdom, June 11th 2012 - Samyang Optics is delighted to announce the latest addition to the popular range of manual focus lenses, the 8mm 1:2.8 UMC Fish-eye lens designed specifically for Sony NEX and Samsung NX cameras.

Complimenting the existing fisheye lenses available in other mounts, the Samyang 8mm 1:2.8 UMC Fisheye is currently the smallest and the brightest Fisheye lens, available in Sony NEX and Samsung NX mounts. It perfectly combines superior optics and a fast aperture within an exceptionally compact size.

Its sophisticated optical construction relies on a system of 10 lenses arranged in 8 groups. They include one aspherical (AS) lens and two lenses made of extra low dispersion glass (ED). These provide outstanding sharpness for the entire field of view and a maximum aperture of f/2.8. The lens surfaces are covered with multi-layered UMC anti-reflective coatings enhancing light transmission and maximising contrast.

Samyang 8mm 1:2.8 UMC Fish-eye is a manual lens that will be marketed with Sony E (NEX) and Samsung NX mounts. In both cases its maximum angle of view will amount to 180 degrees, with a minimum focusing distance of 0.3 metres.

Due for release early July 2012. Expected street price will be £279.99 / Euros 349.99. Visit www.samyang.co.uk for more details.
