For those looking for a lightweight option, the Pergear 12mm f/2 lens only weighs 300g, despite its metal body. This means that it's small and light enough to be easily chucked into a kitbag to be used if needed. Meanwhile, its brass lens mount and chromed copper mount design means that the mount is resistant to abrasion and corrosion, helping to protect your lens as its used over the years.
While the Pergear 12mm f/2 doesn't have autofocus capabilities (which will be why you can pick it up for only $165), it does have two aspherical elements and two low wave high refractive elements. These elements are designed to improve contrast and color rendering in a variety of lighting conditions. Meanwhile, the Pergear 12mm f/2 has a UMC filter that's designed to reduce flare and ghosting.
