Tiny But Super Wide
Breathtakingly lightweight with super wide angle of view,

Tiny but amazing in performance.
The AF 18mm F2.8 FE is the first ultra-wide-angle lens from the Tiny series lineup. Its unbelievable lightweight (145g), super wide-angle of view (100˚), easily holdable in one hand, high performance and spectacular design make this lens perfect for mirrorless cameras and offer incomparable satisfaction to the users.

A Tiny, Ultra-Lightweight Lens

At 145g (excl. hood & cap), this is the most lightweight & compact lens in the current AF 18mm wide-angle segment. Without a heavy lens weighing you down, you can effortlessly photograph every precious moment.

A Prime Lens with 8 Specialized Elements

A prime lens that contains 8 specialized elements out of 9 in total (3 aspherical, 2 high refractive, 3 low dispersion) means a high level of sharpness, with low chromatic aberration and minimal distortion, for excellent landscape pictures, indoor shots, travel photos, and astrophotography...all in high definition, with clear colours, allowing a beautiful finish to any photograph.

Employs a Linear Stepping Motor

The lens delivers fast & stable autofocusing by using a Linear Stepping Motor. The enhanced Samyang AF turns every moment into a work of art you can experience.

A Wide-Angle Lens with Depth

With the full-frame 100˚ angle of view of the AF 18mm F2.8 FE, you can capture sweeping vistas in one magnificent shot. Its ability to demonstrate a broad depth and perspective enables every photographer to show off their creative side.

The Ultimate Travel Companion

With minimal size, a wide angle-of-view and amazing definition, travellers can capture every magical vacation moment. The lens combines Samyang’s signature refinement and colour rendering, all in one lightweight lens, made for travel.

A Multi-Use Lens for Any Occasion

Whether you want to capture nature’s magnificence with a gimbal for stabilized filming, or even a drone, the AF 18mm F2.8 FE is the perfect compact lens to fulfil all your photography needs.

Worth getting up early for: the magic of astrophotography

I know, I know, for someone who likes his bed (and has two young children, so 8 hours sleep is a rarity) astrophotography must be hard work. And yes, yes, it is. Landscape photography is all about sunsets and sunrises. Well, just sunsets really, as sunrises are faaaaar too early (children, again playing a part in this). Maybe a few hours out, enjoying some sunshine, setting up, taking some images, going home, sounds easy, right?
