Rokinon 12mm F2.0 NCS CS Ultra Wide Angle Lens
Posted By: ellicottva, 06-17-2015, 05:55 AM

I am not sure this is the right place to post this as I am new to the forum. I just thought somebody here might want to take advantage of this. This sale begins in 10 mins on Amazon and stays on till the item gets sold I suppose. Here is the link for those that may be interested.

Is the 12mm even for Pentax K mount? I thought it was for smaller format like m43? But it definitely seems like an interesting lens

You are correct - the 12mm f/2 UWA is for mirrorless mounts only. There is also a 12mm f/2.8 FF fisheye for dSLR mounts that was just launched.

I see raves about the NX version, especially for night-sky use bummer about the registry distance!

I am sorry about this. When I first checked it out prior to it being listed on the special, I was able to see all mounts including Pentax. Unfortunately it seems like only the Sony Mount and a few others were on special price but the Pentax lens didn't even show up. It seems like there is no discount on the Pentax.

Unfortunately, Pentax' current mirrorless camera body is still a full K-mount, and this lens does require the significantly reduced flange distance of other mirrorless systems in order to work. That's why it's so teeny-tiny!
