New 12mm F2.0 AF Compact Ultra Wide Angle Lens Designed for Sony E APS-C Cameras

(New York, New York) April 23, 2021 – ROKINON continues to build upon its impressive array of auto-focus prime lenses with the unveiling of its new 12mm F2.0 AF Compact Ultra Wide Angle lens for APS-C Sony E mount cameras. The feature set and overall performance of this fast and rugged lens are unmatched by any in its class.

At 7.51oz in weight, 2.33” in length and a MSRP of $499, this compact and lightweight autofocusing lens offers the best combination of value and performance than ever before. What’s more, it provides a rectilinear 99.1°angle of view, and with the added protection of weather sealing, and a Rear Protector Glass, it allows for lots more versatility.

Utilizing the newest Linear Stepping Motor technology, the ROKINON 12mm F2.0 AF lens combines a more compact design with improved auto-focus performance. By requiring the movement of only a single focusing group, it delivers especially fast, quiet, and precise focusing, whether shooting stills or videos. The design also allows for close focusing to 7.48” with no change in length or front element rotation.

With a bright F2.0 aperture, faster shutter speeds can be achieved for superior astrophotography and low light results. Furthermore, the F2.0 aperture can help create an impressive sense of depth to your daytime images by effectively separating the subject from a pleasing, de-focused background.

The optical construction is comprised of twelve elements in ten groups with a new and further advanced version of Ultra Multi Coating (UMC). Besides controlling Flare and ghosting, this improved UMC maximizes light transmission, contrast and color accuracy. Thanks to I've specialized lens elements (1 Aspherical, 3 Extra-low Dispersion, and 1 Hybrid-Aspherical) aberrations and distortion are minimized to produce sharp, thoroughly corrected imagery.

The ROKINON 12mm F2.0 AF incorporates a new elegant look with a matte black finish and comfortable micro pattern rubber focusing ring over a durable all-metal housing. And, with its dramatically wide angle of view, this ROKINON exciting and attractively priced high-performance model is the lens of choice for landscape, night sky, architecture and interior shooting.

The Rokinon 12mm F2.0 AF Lens for Sony E mount comes packed with a removable petal-shaped hood, lens caps, a custom fitted case, and is expected to be available early June, 2021.
