Designed specifically for Sony NEX and Samsung NX cameras, the Samyang 8mm f/2.8 ED AS IF UMC Fisheye is the latest addition to the Korean manufacturers range of manual focus lenses.
The 8mm F2.8 version comes in addition to the existing F3.5 fish eye intended for the NEX VG10 camcorder.
The F2.8 features ten lens elements in eight groups (rather than the F3.5′s 10/7 design), including one aspherical element and two ED (extra low dispersion glass) elements.
They include one aspherical (AS) lens and two lenses made of extra low dispersion glass (ED).
Krakow, June 11th 2012 – Samyang Optics proudly informs that by the end of June we will release the newest Samyang 8mm 1:2.8 UMC Fish eye lens tailored for Sony NEX and Samsung NX cameras.
Samyang 8mm 1:2.8 UMC Fish eye is currently the smallest and the brightest Fish eye lens compatible with compact cameras featuring APS C sensor.
It perfectly combines high optical value, impressive lens speed and exceptionally compact sizes.
Its sophisticated optical construction relies on a system of 10 lenses arranged in 8 groups.
They include, among others, one aspherical (AS) lens and two lenses made of extra low dispersion glass (ED).
These provide outstanding sharpness for the entire field of view and a maximum aperture of f/2.8.
Obviously all surfaces of the lenses were covered with multi layered UMC anti reflective coatings adding to the high contrast and splendid light transmission.
Samyang 8mm 1:2.8 UMC Fish eye will be marketed with Sony E (NEX) and Samsung NX mount.
Comprising 10 elements arranged in 8 groups, including one aspherical and two extra low distpersion elements, the lens offers an angle of view of 180 degrees, with a minimum focusing distance of 0.3 metres.
