Budget photo accessory manufacturer Pergear has announced the release of its new 12mm F2 wide-angle APS-C lens for Fujifilm X mount, Micro Four Thirds (MFT) mount, Nikon Z mount and Sony E-mount camera systems.
The new manual-focus lens is constructed of 12 elements in 9 groups, including two aspherical and two high-refractive elements. The 12mm focal length offers a full-frame equivalent of 18mm on Fujifilm X mount, Nikon Z mount and Sony E mount cameras and 19mm on MFT mount cameras.
The lens features an aperture range of F2 through F22, a ten-blade aperture diaphragm and a minimum focusing distance of 20cm (.66ft). It measures in at 66mm (2.6”) diameter and 59.5mm (2.34”) long, and weighs only 300g (.66lbs).
The lens costs $165 for all mount options (Fuji X, MFT, Nikon Z and Sony E) and comes with front and rear lens caps, a lens bag and a mini air blower.

Sony’s a7C is among the smallest full-frame mirrorless cameras you can buy, and in terms of core capability, not much has been sacrificed for the sake of compactness. It makes a great travel camera but isn’t as refine as the best of its rivals.
