Samyang is gearing up to debut a 10mm f/2.8 lens for DSLRs and compact system cameras with an APS-C-size imaging sensor.

Due on sale at the end of January, the 10mm f/2.8 ED AS NCS CS is built from 14 elements in 10 groups.

It includes two aspherical ‘AS’ lenses and one made from extra-low dispersion glass.

This is the first Samyang lens to feature a nano crystal anti-reflection coating – designed to boost image contrast, for example.

The Nikon-fit version will cost £469.99, while other mounts will be priced at £429.99.

Samyang showcased a prototype 10mm f/2.8 lens at Photokina 2012.
