amazing ultrawide angle for APS-C

The Samyang 10 mm F2.8 is an amazing ultrawide angle lens, specially made for cameras with a so called crop-sensor. You can’t use this lens at a full-frame body.

a real ultrawide angle lens for APS-C – plus non-fisheye!


First time presented to public in the year 2013, this lens is an up-to-date optical tool. It is a simple tool, while there is not any comfort of automatic functions. You need to handle this lens completely manual. Only users of Nikon bodies are able to control the aperture via their camera. The optical abilities of the Samyang 10 mm F2.8, however, reveal a high-end tool.

The more it is interesting to have a detailed look at this lens, while crop sensors are often smiled at – as if they where the little and impertinant brother of full-frame. The more, as well, it is worthwhile to have a look at this lens, while Samyang does understand, that the smaller sensor with the same resolution of pixels needs the better optical tool. – Last but not least it is worthwhile to have a look at the Samyang 10 mm F2.8, while it is the only fix-focused ultrawide angle lens of this very short focal length – being a non-fisheye!

It is possible to take a photo like this with a zoom lens, reaching 10 mm… or less:

However, can you take a photo like that with a zoom lens plus such a quality? I talk about a great sharpness, very low distortion and very low chromatic aberrations.

This way the Samyang 10 mm F2.8 makes more of your APS-C-sensor: a real ultrawide angle for highest expectations.
