The amazing Samyang XP 10mm F3.5 is here!

A 10mm lens would count as an ultra-wideangle for APS-C cameras, but the new Samyang XP 10mm F3.5, first revealed at Photokina 2018, is actually for full frame Canon DSLRs and soon Nikon DSLRs, making its distortion-free 130-degree angle of view even more remarkable. The lens will be sold as the Rokinon SP 10mm f/3.5 in North America.

Samyang says its new lens is ideal for landscape and architectural photography, and it’s clear from the specifications that the XP 10mm F3.5 is designed for highly demanding users. Samyang may have made its name with low-cost prime lenses, but its XP range targets more advanced expert photographers and professionals.
