The Canon-M Mount Rokinon 12mm f/2.0 NCS CS Lens is a prime super wide angle lens designed specifically for Sony mirrorless cameras with APS-C sized image sensors. Providing a 35mm-equivalent focal length of 18mm and a broad 98.9° angle of view, this lens is great for interior, landscape, and architectural images. Its fast f/2.0 maximum aperture is further beneficial for nightscapes and other low-light conditions.

- Nano Coating System for Maximum Light Transmission and Contrast

Low light photography and videography
With a fast f/2.0 maximum aperture you will be able to shoot later into the day and indoors without a flash or supplemental lighting.
Compact, light in weight and ruggedly built, it's a perfect match for your Canon to take everywhere when traveling.
Super Wide Angle View
A super wide angle lens brings more of the world into the frame without distortion. When shooting landscapes, architecture or interiors the Rokinon 12mm f2.0 will enable you to capture it all without cropping out important parts of the scene.
Optical Construction: 12 Glass Elements In 10 Groups.
Aperture Range: F2.0 to F22.
Diaphragm Blades: 6.
Coating: Nano Coating System.
Minimum Focusing Distance: 7.87”(0.2m).
Filter Size: 67mm.
Lens Hood: Removable Petal Shaped Included.
Maximum Diameter: 2.85”(72.5mm).
Focus is achieved without any lengthening or rotation of the front lens element. This allows the easy use of polarizing and other filters where the position of the filter must be maintained.
Nano Coating System
Nano Coating System improves light transmission and suppresses lens flare and ghosting for more contrast-rich, color neutral images.
A lens with Low Chromatic Aberration allows all colors to come into focus in exactly the same place for reduced color fringing and increased sharpness.
Helps to prevent the distortion of point sources of light, such as stars, from appearing to have a tail like a comet.
Prime Lens Advantages
Prime lenses are typically sharper than zoom lenses. They are less of a compromise. They don't require the extra glass that moves in order to zoom. As a result, you get a better quality photographs due to less diffraction, which increases with higher number of lens elements inside as in the case of zoom lenses.
The prime lens gathers more light as a direct result of the wider aperture, thus increasing the general quality of the image in low light.
Fixed focal length lenses generally have smaller number of elements inside and no moving elements (except for focus, of course). It means that the amount of distortion is significantly smaller when compared to the focal length equivalent of zoom lenses.
Primes are significantly smaller in size when compared to zoom lenses, thus more suitable for traveling and packing. And since they are smaller, they tend to weigh less, thus they wear you down less.

A MAJOR benefit to this lens is....speed. You can set it up so that you never have to focus it for interior/exterior shots. Simply set the focus ring to infinity and then put a piece of tape on the bottom of it to lock it down. Now you never have to check if your shot is in focus or not. Which was NOT the case for my Sony 10-18mm. With THAT lens, few times I needed to duck exposure down QUITE a bit so that the windows were not over-exposed with the intention of adding light back into the interior of the room with flash. What happened though was that the autofocus Sony lens ended up focusing on a sun lit passage further back in the scene! When I got back, the main space that I was shooting was not in focus...but the back hall was!
So my Sony camera has a problem with this when underexposing the interior. Sure, you could manually focus. You could bring up the exposure to get the main scene in focus, then lock down the focus, darken exposure to get the windows right, and then take the shot. You could. But WHY? That is way WAY too many steps for a fast-paced shooting situation like shooting the interiors of homes. I need to be able to step in the corner of a room and take the shot and then move to the next location in as little time as possible. I already have to adjust the camera to get it level. I already have to duck the exposure but make sure it's not faster than flash sync speed....there's already plenty to check. I want to KNOW that the shot will always be in focus.
This Rokinon lens with the tape-down-the-focus-ring trick lets me do just that. I know that wherever I am in a house, that shot is going to come out in focus. And that has been a big benefit to me. The attached images were taken with this lens.
-Fairly-frequent green/magenta color fringing on both my X-Pro1 & X-T2, though usually easy to remove in post
-Quality of optics isn't incredible, and at apertures 5.6+ quality loss becomes *very* noticeable
-Manual focus, though not an issue while composing slower shots, has caused me issues in fast & precise scenarios like theatre
-Can shift ever-so-slightly while on the camera body... it has no stability issues, though, so this is just a pet peeve
-A way to have a surprisingly-decent wide lens for less than half the cost of a Fuji autofocus lens
-Build quality is solid, focusing & aperture rings still feel sturdy after countless hours of use
-f2 is pretty darn fast glass compared to similar autofocus lenses
-Focuses very close, and is tack-sharp at minimum distance + minimum aperture, something many Fuji lenses aren't
Though now I'm buying a Fuji wide (10-24mm f4) to have more flexibility & consistency on shoots that need it, I don't regret this purchase one bit.
If you have a hard time justifying a larger purchase right now, or simply don't need fast focusing/flawless clarity/higher apertures, this lens may be just what you need.
Optically, it is excellent even wide open. Sharpness is very uniform across the entire frame. I think this is a consequence of the fact that this lens is designed for larger sensors. It also means that I have much more flexibility in ISO or shutter speed. Like other Rokinon, this lens is well built and substantial. Focus ring is smooth and offers nice resistance. Aperture has clicks and a solid feel. The only minor issue is that the mount is not as smooth as other Olympus or Panasonic lenses I have.
Oct 18 2017 update
This is an update after using it for a little longer. Attached are some of recent pictures. Sharpness and resolution are absolutely stunning. The first two were hand held with wide open aperture. The last one was on tripod with aperture set to f/8.0. Manual focus was very easy.
