Samyang 10mm f/2.8 ED AS NCS C

fills a gap in the mar­ket with its ul­tra-wide prime for DX cam­eras

NPhoto - - Test Team -

Given that most of us tend to use ul­tra-wide zoom lenses at or near their short­est fo­cal lengths, the lack of prime op­tions for DX cam­eras is sur­pris­ing. Korean man­u­fac­turer Samyang aims to re­dress the bal­ance with the launch of this brand new 10mm f/2.8 op­tic.

The 10mm f/2.8 is a rec­ti­lin­ear (non-fish­eye) lens that gives a gen­er­ous 109.5-de­gree an­gle of view. As we’ve seen in other Samyang lenses, the Nikon-fit edi­tion is more re­fined than other mount op­tions. Bonuses in­clude elec­tronic com­mu­ni­ca­tion be­tween cam­era and lens, en­abling full com­pat­i­bil­ity in PASM modes, along with i-TTL flash com­mu­ni­ca­tion. It’s the first Samyang lens to fea­ture nano crys­tal coat­ings, de­signed to boost con­trast and re­duce un­wanted re­flec­tions, while a built-in lens hood helps re­duce flare. As with other Samyang lenses, there’s no aut­o­fo­cus.
