Pros: Sharpness, lightness, great opening f.2

Cons: Chromatic aberration

Opinion: Excellent sharpness ! Compared to the emblazoned Fuji zoom 10-24, at 12 mm is better than the Samyang ! Amazing but verified ! There is the problem of chromatic aberrations on the periphery of the frame, they are easily eliminated with Capture One Express for Fujifilm. ( but there are ) I, like others, have found the infinite focus on the L and not on the symbol. I, like others, also use Focus Peaking for THE MAF which I find very efficient. Physiological and controllable distortion. Nothing to detect in negative. Recommended.

Pros: sharpness, colors, bokeh, lightness

Cons: Infinite focus.

Opinion: I had this lens for some time on Fuji Xe-2 / XPRO1 and I had a great time, but in the end I sold it. Why? simply for my use was too WIDE. I love landscape but I don't like landscapes taken from afar to the point where I can't distinguish anything except zooming in. In other cases I would shoot too many useless things and could not always be excluded from the pp photo. I prefer to put in the foreground a subject taking advantage of the large area behind and in that case it was great, but in the end I opted for the 23mm (35mm FF). The only flaw is to focus on infinity, which alas in my model did not coincide, but was slightly before the "L". Cmq for the price paid is worth the expense, if it cost 400 euros absolutely not.

Pros: Sharpness, colors, lightness, construction, character, filter thread, psychedelic

Cons: I don't know at these figures, doesn't have the contacts to communicate with the machine body

Opinion: Purchased for Fuji X-T1 and X-E2S in The Walimex Pro version (they seem to be the same) on Amazon Warehouse Deals (so double deal) I have to confirm all the positive reviews posted on the "tube" by different photobloggers. First of all, this lens - which was made specifically for ML - is very light and perfectly responsive to the philosophy of this series of mirrorless fuji: fair prices, small size (my cervical thanks, the Nikon DSLR kit rests...), sharpness already from f:2, faithful colors and above all CARATTERE to sell. Already the jpeg are great freshly baked, if you want to correct in PP and eliminate a bit of vignette (it's a 12mm!) and reduce that bit of distortion (it's a 12mm!) there is for all tastes. Aberrations I do not seem to see (I do not go to enlarge to 300%, I do not care...), something will be there but it does not concern me, BLURO (fantastic to play with the prospects) instead beautiful, minimum distance of focus around 20cm. The only feature of this series of lenses (I had two, one I sold the second I hold it very tight) is the calibration of the infinity focus indication. To focus indefinitely you do not have to get to the end of the race (I recommend gentle movements) but stop a little before (god, on the first lens was true, this that I own now instead is perfect, go and understand...). Concluding a lens to have in a travel kit, from street, from architecture. I mean, I'm going to HAVE. Small note in the margin: some FUJI wide lenses - which I would instinctively prefer to this - left me cold, this one instead won me over immediately.

Pros: compactness, general yield, price value, f/2 opening

Cons: distances indicator busted

Opinion: Taken used at not even two hundred ii was pleasantly surprised by the yield: it can be used even at full opening and is fabulous as a travel lens: small, compact and quality. Perfect as a lens to take to the mountains, manual focus is not a problem thanks to focus peaking. It's worth all the euros it costs.

Pros: Sharpness, construction, dier, weight and compactness, price.

Cons: Chromatic aberrations, rear stage, star effect, quality control.

Opinion: Bought twice first couple horrible soft corners very disappointed only after a few years bought again on the advice of a nice photographer friend the amazing surprise the first couple difference. Current couple bought new with 5 years guarantee very good angles already at f2.8 amazing at f5.6 where it reaches maximum sharpness center and corners. Really excellent construction in metal and plastic perfect focus I find at the end of the dial unlike first couple where I never understood exact infinity focus. Astro Photography we recommend if you find great couple. I wondered but how two pairs Samyang 12 f2 same optics so much difference ?. Cons: Samyang 12 f2 very high chromatic aberrations poor lens treatment unlike Zeiss Touit 12 great slow treatments but costs a lot unlike the Samyang 12 plus the Touit 12 electronic only manual focus with rubber dial ?. Flare I do not know to the always problematic focal. Rear cap can change with another after trying different at the store expected very fixed ok. For 320.00 euros paid really amazing ratio yield and costs. Cons: Quality controls variations couples find a great couple you will find a real gem.
