While Samyang is mostly known for its manual-focus optics, the firm has also started filling out its stable of autofocus lenses for various systems. The latest addition is this lens for Fujifilm X mirrorless cameras – the Samyang AF 12mm F2 X.

Essentially it’s an upgrade to the Samyang 12mm f2.0 NCS CS Lens for Fujifilm X, adding autofocus and a few other improvements across the board. Fujifilm isn’t the first system to gain this particular upgrade – the Samyang AF 12mm F2.0 E for Sony APS-C cameras arrived earlier this year, and impressed our reviewer with its image quality and snappy, silent autofocus.
