The Samyang 16mm f/2.0 ED AS UMC CS Lens Sony E works with Sony E DSLRs and APS-C format cameras. This sort of lens is most appropriate for architecture, landscapes, interior pictures, panoramic views as well as filming monuments for the most part due to it´s angle of view of 83.1°.

Manufactured and specially designed with superior quality materials, this type of ultra-wide Samyang lens will overstate the depth of field which often makes objects in the background appear to be further away from the foreground as compared to how they essentially seem to be in reality and allows for the opportunity to exaggerate curves and lines.

Product features:

  • The UMC lens coatings will enable even light transmission and reduces ghosting and flare.
  • Wide angle focal length identical to 24mm in the 35mm format.
  • Fast f/2.0 maximum aperture for reliable low light shooting and shallow depth of field.
  • Aspherical and extra-low dispersion lens elements prevent aberrations.

With this wide angle lens the minimum focus distance is 0.2m, the lens in addition contains a large aperture of f/2.0, therefore can be used superbly under a large number of lighting environments like in low lighting conditions. Any time you can´t stand back adequately enough for getting everybody within your image, for instance in any team shot and even to fit a big building in the shot just attach this lens and more of the image will fit within the frame.

The configuration of the optics of the Samyang 16mm f/2.0 ED AS UMC CS Lens Sony E is 13 elements organized within 11 groups consisting of a low dispersion ED element, an aspheric optical element to deliver the highest level of quality and contrast to the images. A hybrid aspherical glass element provides optimum light transmission and delivers highly accurate colour reproduction. As with the vast majority of modern Samyang lenses the lens is sprayed making use of a layer of multilayer anti-reflective coating or (UMC).

A conventional field of view is supplied when using lenses of a 30-35mm focal length, this is often similar to what the human eye percieves, consequently at 18mm you can actually fit a lot more inside the frame as the field of view is nearly two times as wide, while at 12mm you can expect to fit 50% more of the FOV for example. The photographer may make use of this unique effect in all varieties of artistic ways.

The Samyang lens features an 8 blade diaphragm that will produce a fine blurry background, usually called the bokeh (blur) effect, it´s so straightforward with this lens to capture those shots you always dreamed of, as the exaggeration of comparative dimensions will allow you to make foreground objects more visual and eye catching whenever shooting substantial backdrops.

Such a type of Samyang 16mm wide angle lens is designed with a great depth of field which implies you can actually integrate a considerable amount of the image in the frame of the photograph, this can be significantly vital for landscape photography, also the lens is more affordable in comparison with a lot of other lenses that you can buy.
