    I wonder how it will perform on a full frame in crop mode, especially in the corners. You can get an inexpensive fast manual super-width - twice as affordable as the Samyang 12mm f / 2.0.

    • Victor

      You can buy it and send Arkady for review, everyone will be immensely grateful to you :)

        Pergear sent me a few new lenses for review, but they are stuck at customs, most likely they will never arrive. I'm tired of trying to figure it out already.

        • Rodion

          Are they there, the cost is too high in the declaration, or what? I was once asked to make it lower so that they would not be stolen at customs. Italy, by the way.

          Can I ask one question - is Pergear a Chinese or Japanese company? How to find this lens in China? The first time I see that it is impossible to find them under the direct name, there is no Chinese name at all. The site seems to show that this Japanese company ...

          • Alexey

            Chinese. The company is called EMGREAT TECH CO, based in Shenzhen, Guangdong Province.

      The 62mm front lens is hopeless

      • Victor

        How does the quality of a lens depend on the diameter of the filter thread?

        • Novel

          I have a Canon 20 / 2.8 with a 72mm thread (not even 62). And about the same distance from the edge of the thread to the edge of the lens, i.e. the front lens is very small with the same strongly convex shape. Naturally, this is reflected in the quality - extremely strong vignetting and very soft edges (also wild curvature of the field).

          The Canon EF-S 10-18 with an aperture of 4 has a thread diameter of 67 mm and the lens size is slightly larger than here.

          Good widths are always difficult to make due to the front element. The best examples usually have a built-in hood and a lens from side to side - all these are 12-24, 14 mm.

          • Arkady Shapoval

            20 2.8 for full frame and SLR cameras. And this Pergear is for crop and for mirrorless cameras, which affects the size.

            • Novel

              But Pergear is also a stop aperture at a much smaller size and similar, corrected for the focal factor crop factor. I would be surprised if he performs significantly better on the crop.

              • Victor

                It's just that a person compared it with samyang, and samyang has a much larger “skirt” for the filter, with a similar (and I would not be surprised if exactly the same) lens diameter, which in theory will allow using ordinary filters instead of low-profile ones, and nothing more.

            • Novel

              The Samyang 12 / 2.0, which this lens will compete with, has a -1 penny vignette when open with a front filter diameter of 67 mm and generally has a somewhat more barrel-shaped shape at decent angles. This lens is slimmer in the central part. It will definitely be interesting to compare the results.

              • Arkady Shapoval

                Yes, you need to wait for the full size from it.

        • Michael

          The diameter of the entrance pupil (that is, the lens) affects both the vignette and the sharpness in the corners.

          • Victor

            You compared the diameter of the filter thread, not the diameter of the entrance pupil, in general, these concepts are not always directly interconnected.

  • Igor

    I read the title as Peregar :))
