Precise wide angle - Samyang 16mm f/2.0
Ultra wide angle, bright lens Samyang 16mm f/2.0 ED AS UMC CS was designed with utmost diligence. Its optical structure is based on 13 elements arranged in 11 groups. This includes one ED-type lens of extra low dispersion ratio, one optical glass aspherical lens and one hybrid aspherical. The lenses have multi-layer anti-reflective UMC coating which ensures very good transmission of light. Solid casing and the quality of workmanship aligned with excellent optical parameters make this lens an exceptionally attractive and user-friendly tool both for professional and amateur photographers.
Samyang 16mm f/2.0 ED AS UMC CS is dedicated for digital SLRs and mirrorless compact cameras equipped with APS-C sensor. The manufacturer ensured wide availability of the product offering mounts for such models as: Canon EF and M, Nikon F, Sony A and E, Pentax K, Fujiifilm X, Samsung NX, MFT and Four Thirds.
Light compact mirror – Samyang 300mm f/6.3 Reflex
Samyang Reflex f/6.3 300mm ED UMC CS is a small-size reflex lens dedicated for mirrorless compact cameras. The optical structure contains 9 elements arranged in 6 groups, including one ED-type lens ensuring high contrast and effectively preventing chromatic aberration.

To meet the needs of those users for whom the aesthetics are as important as the quality and functionality of equipment, this lens is available in two colours: black and silver. Available mounts: Sony E, Fujiifilm X, MFT and Canon M.
