Samyang Announces 10mm f/2.8 Lens for APS-C Cameras

From Samyang:

Samyang releases new wide-angle 10mm f/2.8 ED AS NCS CS lens dedicated for APS-C system cameras.

Prototype versions of Samyang 10mm f/2.8 lens were originally presented to the public at the Photokina 2012 show. Samyang has stepped its innovation and introduced a focused development program to obtain the highest possible optical parameters and reduce the product's size. These efforts resulted in the latest version of Samyang 10 f/2.8 ED AS NCS CS lens featuring parameters and capabilities comparable to the best wide-angle prime and zoom lenses on the market.

Samyang 10mm f/2.8 ED AS NCS CS is an ideal tool for indoor, architecture and landscape shooting. It provides an exceptionally wide field of view of up to 109.5 degrees and rectilinear image mapping function. Because of its fast f/2.8 aperture, you can also use the lens in low light conditions. The lens is especially useful for sport photography and photojournalism purposes. The product's optics comprises 14 elements divided into 10 groups, with 2 aspherical AS lenses and one lens made of extra-low dispersion glass. The lens features an embedded lens hood which ensures more compact size of the lens and reduces its weight by approximately 160 grams*.

NCS (Nano Coating System)
Samyang 10mm f/2.8 ED AS NCS CS is the first Samyang Optics lens featuring a nano crystal anti-reflection coating system. This technology provides lower reflection factor than (U)MC system as the coating is now applied more evenly on the surface of the lens. Benefits of the nano crystal layer include better light transmission, increased resistance to reflections, and higher contrast leading to supreme optical resolution.
