A couple of teasers for what appears to be a new 50mm f/1.2 cinema lens have been posted by Samyang and Rokinon. [Read more...]
Samyang has announced a new 35mm f/1.4 lens available in Canon mount with auto exposure, though it is still a manual focus lens. Additionally, a new 300mm f/6.3 mirror lens will be available in Canon EF, Nikon F, Sony A and Micro 4/3 mounts.
Alongside the new still photography lenses, Samyang also announced a trio of cine lenses for mirrorless cameras - Samyang 10mm T3.1, 12mm T2.2 and 7.5mm T3.8 lenses. All of the lenses are cinema versions of previously-existing still lenses. Now, they feature the standard gearing on aperture and focus rings.
These new lenses will go on sale tomorrow. Watch for them here at B&H Photo.
Samyang has taken the wraps off of the lenses it has teased over the past week. While we thought that we might see AF lenses from Samyang, we ended up with new support for several mirrorless camera mounts in a trio of lenses. [Read more...]
Samyang is all about building some hype this week. It released another image on its Facebook page today teasing upcoming lenses. This time, three sillouhettes of lenses appear along with a message: “Coming Soon. Our past is just a story.”
Hopefully, we’ll find out in a couple of days just what those new lenses are…
Samyang is teasing a new lens announcement for March 21. All we have so far is this teaser image, which was shared on the company’s Facebook page yesterday. Previous hints and rumors suggest that Samyang is about to launch a new line of autofocus lenses. Perhaps this will be the first…
Samyang’s current line of photo and cine lenses are well regarded for the optical performance and low price. Offering AF versions of these popular lenses should be a real boon to the company and customers alike.
- Samyang 14mm f/2.8 ED AS IF UMC
- Samyang 24mm f/1.4 ED AS IF UMC
- Samyang T-S 24mm f/3.5 ED AS UMC
- Samyang 35mm f/1.4 AS UMC
- Samyang 85mm f/1.4 AS IF UMC
So far, only the 14mm f/2.8 lens is available for pre-order. Expect the others to follow soon.
With the warm reception we’ve seen from the Sony A7 and A7R, expect the third-party lens lineup to continue to grow for the Sony E-mount. Also, while these lenses were clearly released in response to the A7 and A7R, they are also compatible with the Sony APS-C E-mount cameras.
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.
