Product Overview

Samyang XP 50mm F1.2 is a large-aperture manual-focus normal prime lens for Canon EF-mount and Nikon F-mount. It covers the full-frame image circle. Introduced by Samyang in 2018, it has 11 elements in 8 groups.
Manual focus may be limiting to some, but purists will find it much more engaging. There are also fewer things to go wrong on the long run. Unfortunately, Samyang has opted to omit weather sealing for this lens, so owners should pay extra attention when shooting in incremental weathers.
A normal prime lens, the Samyang XP 50mm F1.2 has the potential to be one of the most used and ultimately versatile option in a photographer's bag. Usually the easiest to design and to QC, it is a great option for landscape and street photography. Its bright maximum aperture also helps night and portrait works.
