While AF lenses have been in the rumor mill for a while now for the company, Samyang has finally announced a pair of new AF lenses for Sony full frame E-mount cameras like the A7 II, A7R II and A7S II.
The new lenses are the Samyang 14mm f/2.8 ED AS IF UMC and Samyang 50mm f/1.4 AS IF UMC. The new lenses are compatible with both phase detect and contrast detect sensors found in Sony E-mount cameras.
The new lenses should be available in July 2016. No official word on price yet but they are rumored to be under $600…
Alongside the Cinema Kit for the ME20F-SH camera, Canon also unveiled a new Compact-Servo 18-80mm cinema lens. It is compatible with EF-mount Super 35 and APS-C cameras and features a T4.4 constant aperture throughout the entire focal range.
The lens also works with Canon Cinema EOS cameras that use Dual Pixel AF for reliable autofocus and offers a number of camera controls on the lens body and servo unit, including push auto iris, record start and stop, as well as remote lens control with industry-standard controllers.
The Canon Compact-Servo 18-80mm lens and ZSG-C10 accessory grip are scheduled to be available later in 2016 for an estimated retail price of $5,500 and $499 respectively. Check it out here at B&H Photo.
As with the existing Batis lenses, the 18mm lens offers autofocus and an OLED display for focus distance and depth of field info. It uses a floating element system and Zeiss’ Distagon optical design.
The new Zeiss Batis 18mm f/2.8 lens will be available in early May 2016 for $1499. Check it out here at B&H Photo.
