Samyang 12mm f2 NCS CS

This was a popular early X-mount lens for astro-photography, although I can't say I’ve done much of that. It was a lovely light, manual focus lens to walk round with however, and I used it quite a bit on our honeymoon road trip across Italy.

It was also quite a fun lens for event photography where you can get close, wide shots in low light.

I no longer have the lens however, having switched to using the Fuji 10-24 as I did often struggle to get sharp focus with the Samyang.
