Samyang’s AF 12mm F2 X brings Fuji X-Mount camera users a lens built with advanced AF technology, convenient features, and a new design. It is optimised for shooting dramatic landscapes that go beyond the human viewing angle. Used with Fujifilm X Series mirrorless cameras, the Samyang AF 12mm F2 X provides a 99.1° ultra-wide field of view. Fuji X-Mount camera users can now shoot wider and faster, harmoniously blending landscapes with the surrounding background

The AF 12mm F2 X delivers outstanding image quality, allowing you to capture that starry night or wide vista in stunning detail. Incorporating 5 special elements (1 H-ASP, 1 ASP, and 3 ED) plus Ultra Multi-Coating, it achieves exceptional resolution from the centre to the edges of the frame, even wide-open at its F2.0 maximum aperture. The advanced optical design also allows a minimum focusing distance of just 20cm, so you can easily capture close-ups with impressive depth.

New micro-patterned rubber focus ring gives better handling and grip. Product design is updated with new components and fonts to deliver a sophisticated and modern look. Weather-sealing and new rear protective glass prevent infiltration of moisture, dust and rain. This provides an additional layer of protection when shooting outdoors under adverse conditions.

Capture natural colours and a wider angle of view with Fujifilm cameras
This lens features convenient functions and a new design that is optimised for shooting magnificent landscapes that go beyond the normal viewing angle. Used with the Fujifilm X Series mirrorless cameras, the Samyang AF 12mm F2 X provides a 99.1° ultra-wide field of view. Fujifilm X Series camera users can now shoot wider landscapes, harmoniously blending with the surrounding background.

Excellent resolution in all areas of the image
The AF 12mm F2 X delivers outstanding image quality, so you can capture that starry night in much clearer detail. Incorporating 5 special elements (1 H-ASP, 1 ASP, and 3 ED) plus Ultra Multi-Coating, it achieves exceptional resolution image quality from the centre to the edges of the frame, even wide-open at its F2.0 maximum aperture. With the advanced optical design, the Minimum Focusing Distance is only 20cm, so you can easily capture close-ups and indoor images, with reduced backlight haze.

Compact size & lightweight with a new design for Fujifilm X-Series cameras
The AF 12mm F2 X lens has a length of 59.2mm (2.3in) and weighs just 212g (7.5oz). The matte finish and the subtle red ring (dependent on viewing angle) give it a modern feel. Usability has been enhanced by considering not only the design but also the users’ shooting environment. There is a micro-patterned rubber focus ring, so it feels good to operate and there is also weather sealing and rear protective glass to protect the lens from light rain, snow, and dust.

Bright F2.0 aperture creates impressive background blur and bokeh
AF 12mm F2 X lens uses a large-diameter aperture to provide smooth background blur. It effectively separates the subject and the background using a shallow depth of field to capture a unique image of an ultra-wide-angle in which the background is compressed. The 7-blades produce smooth and natural bokeh with light splitting.

Short M.O.D (0.20m)
The minimum object distance is a very close 20cm, so it can be used to capture much more, in a variety of ways. It makes it easier to take portraits with exaggerated perspective, food on tables, and interior shots in narrow spaces.

Fast and quiet AF performance
The AF 12mm F2 X tracks the subject accurately and quickly, whilst the AF operates quietly and smoothly in video recording mode. Samyang's Linear STM (Stepping Motor) satisfies both photographers and videographers with quieter and more accurate control of the larger and heavier focusing lens groups. In particular, it is advantageous for video shooting as this lens is suitable for use on a gimbal, in combination with the small and light Fujifilm X series cameras.

Understanding: Aperture

Aperture is the opening in a camera lens that controls how much light enters the camera. It's measured in f-stops like f/2.8 or f/8. Lower f-stop numbers mean wider openings, letting in more light and creating a shallow depth of field (blurry background). Higher f-stop numbers mean smaller openings, letting in less light and creating a larger depth of field (more of the scene in focus). Aperture also affects the quality of out-of-focus areas in the image (bokeh).

Understanding: Lens Types

Different lenses have different purposes to achieve different styles of images, some popular ones include:
Prime Lens: Fixed focal length, sharp images, great for portraits and dark settings.
Zoom Lens: Variable focal length, versatile for different shots and everyday use..
Wide-Angle Lens: Captures wide scenes like landscapes.
Telephoto Lens: Magnifies distant subjects, ideal for sports & wildlife.
Macro Lens: Perfect for close-up photography of small subjects.
Fisheye Lens: Ultra-wide perspective, creates unique images.

Understanding: Lens Mounts

Different camera brands use different lens mounts, which are like connectors that attach lenses to camera bodies. Each mount is specific to a particular brand and camera series. For example, Canon uses the EF and RF mounts, Nikon uses the F mount, Sony uses the E mount for its mirrorless cameras. These mounts dictate which lenses are compatible with which cameras. Some brands offer adapters to use lenses from other systems, but it's essential to ensure compatibility for proper functionality and autofocus performance.

Understanding: Manual and Autofocus

Manual focus and autofocus are two ways to adjust the sharpness of a camera lens. With manual focus, you turn a ring on the lens to bring the subject into focus yourself, giving you full control over what appears sharp in the image. Autofocus, on the other hand, relies on the camera's built-in technology to automatically adjust the focus for you, usually by detecting contrast or phase differences in the scene. Autofocus can be convenient, especially for fast-moving subjects or when you need to capture a quick shot, whereas manual focus allows for precise adjustments and creative control over the final image.
