Built and designed with the help of premium quality materials, this type of ultra-wide lens is going to overstate the depth of field which may make objects in the background seem further away from the foreground as opposed to how they really are and delivers the ability to exaggerate curves and lines.

The Samyang 16mm f/2.0 ED AS UMC CS MFT for Olympus PEN E-P2 contains an 8 blade diaphragm which will supply a fine blurry background, in some cases called the bokeh (blur) effect, now it´s an easy task to acquire those shots you always wished for, as the exaggeration of size dimension makes it possible for you to make foreground objects far more apparent and noticeable anytime shooting larger backdrops.

The design of the optics of this Samyang 16mm lens is 13 elements within 11 groups incorporating a low dispersion ED element, an aspheric optical element so as to provide optimum quality and contrast. As with a large number of modern Samyang lenses it is sprayed using a layer of multilayer anti-reflective coating or (UMC). A hybrid aspherical glass element guarantees optimum light transmission and gives accurate colour reproduction.

A traditional field of view is supplied when using lenses of a 30-35mm focal length, which is very similar to what the human eye perceives, therefore at 18mm you are able to fit way more within the frame as the field of view is practically two times as wide, while at 12mm you are going to fit 50% more of FOV for example. A photographer may use this kind of effect in all types of imaginative ways.

This kind of wide angle lens supplies a great depth of field which means you are able to contain a considerable amount of the image within the frame of the photograph. This lens is excellent for architecture, landscapes, interior pictures, panoramic views along with capturing monuments because of the 83.1° angle of view, this is often essential for landscape photography. Additionally the lens is less expensive when compared to several very similar choices available on the market.
