New Sony A7 and A7R owners can rejoice. Samyang has introduced five new full-frame lenses for Sony E-mount, including:
- 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.
The new Samyang 24mm f/3.5 ED Tilt-Shift lens is in stock and shipping at B&H for $999 in Canon mount. Both Nikon and Canon mounts are available in the Rokinon version of the same lens.
The new Samyang 24mm f/3.5 ED AS UMC Tilt-Shift lens received an official price tag of $999 and is now available for pre-order in Canon, Nikon and Sony versions. Compare that to the $2200 price tag for the Canon EF 24mm f/3.5L tilt-shift lens.
Samyang has added a 85mm T1.5 lens to its cinema lens line-up. The new 85mm T1.5 AS IF UMC lens joins the four existing Samyang cine lenses, the 8mm, 14mm, 24mm and 35mm.
Optical construction is the same as a standard version of the 85mm lens, including the 8-blade aperture for smooth bokeh wide open. This new version, however, is designed specifically for cinematography with focus gearing and a silent aperture ring.
No word yet on price, release dates or mount options; however, past Samyang cine models have been available in Canon, Nikon and Sony mounts.
The Samyang 10mm F/2.8 ED AS UMC CS lens is a new wide-angle prime for APS-C DSLRs.
The new Samyang lens should be available by year’s end. Check availability here at B&H Photo.
