Samyang announce the release of a full-frame 12mm 1:2.8 ED AS NCS Fish-eye lens. The new model is yet another new product from the Korean lens manufacturer and its widest 35mm film format lens. The lens will be officially introduced at Photokina in Cologne on September 16th 2014.

The new Samyang 12mm 1:2.8 ED AS NCS Fish-eye is a bright, super wide-angle fish-eye lens designed especially for full-frame cameras, offering 180 degrees angle of view. In terms of optics, it is one of the most advanced "fish-eye” lenses. The product's sophisticated optics consists of 12 lens elements arranged in 8 groups. This includes three elements made of low dispersion ED glass and two aspherical lens elements to ensure perfect image depth and minimal chromatic aberration.

This 12mm Fish-eye is the third lens (along with 10mm f/2.8 and 12mm f/2.0) that features highly effective nanocrystal and anti-reflection NCS coating applied together with standard UMC coatings. Thanks to these coatings and a fast aperture of f/2.8, the lens can be used as a perfect tool in diverse lighting conditions, as it provides great focus, high contrast and natural colour reproduction even with the aperture wide open.

The market release date for the new lens and its retail price will be announced at a later date.

If it's anything close to the MFT 7.5mm version then the FF boys 'n girls are on to a winner.

I don't know how they do it when it comes to controlling CA and edge sharpness - they are good. Mine out-performs my Nikkor 10.5mm f2.8 DX lens all the way.
