Pergear is known for its affordable lenses for mirrorless cameras. The company has just launched the latest one: 12mm f/2. This fisheye lens is made for APS-C and MFT models and it’s apparently aimed at those with a low budget, considering that it costs only $166.
The Pergear 12mm f/2 comes in four different mounts: Sony E, Fuji XF, Nikon Z, and MFT. It’s made for APS-C models, but you can use it on your full-frame Sony and Nikon cameras if you switch to APS-C mode.
Considering the price, I believe that you can guess that the lens is manual focus. It shouldn’t be a problem though for those of you who got used to focusing manually. Keep in mind that you need to set your camera to shoot without a lens when you want to use it.
