This summer’s parade of new Samyang lenses (which will likely be distributed in the U.S. under the Rokinon brand) continues with a new 20mm f/1.8 ED AS UMC full-frame option for a whole slew of modern camera mounts.

The lens, like most of the lineup, is manual focus-only and is meant to fill the small-but-relevant gap between 16mm and 24mm in the current lineup. Because of its design and its wide focal length, it has a minimum focusing distance of 0.2 meters (7.9 inches).

The new 20mm f/1.8 has all the modern bells and whistles you’d expect, including Ultra Multi Coatings, two aspherical elements, and three extra-low dispersion elements. It has a total of 13 elements in 12 groups.

Most impressively, the lens will be available in 10 camera mounts for DSLRs and mirrorless ILCs: Canon EF and M, Fujifilm X, Four Thirds and Micro Four Thirds (Olympus and Panasonic), Nikon AF, Pentax K, Samsung NX, and Sony A and E.

We will bring you price and availability information as soon as it’s available here in the U.S.
