June 22, 2022

Meike has announced a 12mm F2.0 APS-C format manual focus wide-angle lens in Fujifilm X-mount and Sony E-mount versions.

Whilst the X-mount and E-mount versions are available immediately, anyone looking for Micro Four Thirds, Canon RF or Nikon Z mounts will only have to wait till 25 June 2022 for those to become available.

News of the arrival of the 12mm optic comes less than a month after Meike unveiled a 7.5mm F2.8 APS-C Fisheye manual focus lens.
