Whenever wide angle lenses come in, I'm always super excited because a lens like the Rokinon 12mm f2 is always bound to be fantastic but also really cool with the way that it renders the world. Rokinon has always been known as a manufacturer that delivers stunning quality at a really affordable price point.
Granted there are sometimes tradeoffs like it being manual focus (which isn't that bad if you know what you're going for) and there have been a variety of reports on quality. But Rokinon has pledged that they've improved, and if you look at their higher end lineup of glass then that makes sense. In the case of the Rokinon 12mm f2, it's a lens designed for APS-C cameras; and what better system to test it on than the Fujifilm X series?. thephoblographer.com
