Samyang has announced a new cine lens based on its 16mm f/2 lens, which will feature geared focus and aperture rings for smooth control using follow focus systems. The Samyang V-DSLR 16mm T2.2 ED AS UMC CS lens should arrive in early September for most DSLR and mirrorless mounts with APS-C or smaller sensors.
Retail price will be EUR 419. No word on US pricing yet; however, based on the price of other Samyang cine lenses, I would guess it will be in the $500-$550 range.
