| p.3 #3 · New lenses from Samyang officially announced! |
I got my copy of the 12mm for x-mount a few days ago and did some preliminary testing.
distortion is quite low, easily corrected when and if needed
F2 is soft overall, not horrible but still softer than f2.8
quite a bit of vignetting at f2, less at f2.8 and much less at f4 and mostly gone by f5.6
corners are a little soft, not bad starting at f2.8 and much better at f5.6
my copy appears to have a strange yellowish cast in part of the image, not sure if this is just my copy, need to do some testing. It is not a conversion artifact, visible in viewfinder.
Still a very nice lens for the price. I am hoping that another copy will cure the problem that I saw over the weekend.
A write up I did and some sample images are here:
