Title: More Teasers From Samyang, Three New Lenses?
Post by: Canon Rumors on March 19, 2014, 03:10:50 PM

*UPDATE 2*

Apparently Samyang is not yet ready to announce their first autofocus lens this go around. So we’ll see a 10mm, 50mm and something else?


*UPDATE*

We hear a 50mm f/1.4 from Samyang is already in production and it could be a cine version or both.


Samyang posted another teaser on their Facebook page. They have what looks to be three lenses being announced this Friday. One of the lenses is said to be a manual focus 10mm f/2.8. A second lens is rumored to be their first autofocus lens and it’ll be 35mm. As for the third one? That’s still a total mystery.

Guess we'll have more competition in autofocus lenses. Can be 10mm, 35mm, 50mm.

Guess even less teasers from Canon these past 2 years - unless powershots, rebels, and stm kit lenses excite you.

Considering the left lens' bulbous element and small hood, I'd guess it's wider than 10mm.

Edit: then again, it looks like knobs on the barrel - maybe a tilt-shift lens?

My guess the mystery lens will be a 50mm f1.4, this will be a popular focal length in the mass sales market.

I think you're right about the knobs, but I don't see the front elements at all, just the hoods.

And theyve said before that they are working on one. Thing is, manual focus 50mm f/1.4 lenses are a dime a dozen out there with adapters, so, Im not sure how successful they'll be with that. Unless its very cheap.

The 10mm lens is one Ive been waiting for a while, price dependent. Looks like its been confirmed: http://www.ukdigital.co.uk/catalogsearch/result/?q=samyang+10mm (http://www.ukdigital.co.uk/catalogsearch/result/?q=samyang+10mm)

Our past is just a story. Autofocus is their future. What's so tough to read about this?

Interesting, looks like it's for crop sensors only though.

Why doesn't the little guy have a mount unlike the others?
What seems like knobs might just be a ring (aperture ring, etc.). Notice it doesn't have a narrower stalk.

50mm f1.4 or 1.8... With AF.  >:( or an 85mm with AF.

Hee...hee....maybe Sigma can borrow that tag line... "Our Past Is Just a Story, an Iffy One!"   :o
I couldn't resist ...although based on my 35mm Art...the past may be the past for them too.
Will be interesting to see what SamYang offers up since they seem to be turning a corner as well.

What this world really needs is yet another 50mil.. Don't think so, SamJunk is smarter than that.

Yeah, they technically announced the lens a year and a half ago, but they clearly had issues with production: http://www.canonrumors.com/2012/09/photokina-2012-samyang-10mm-f2-8-for-aps-c/ (http://www.canonrumors.com/2012/09/photokina-2012-samyang-10mm-f2-8-for-aps-c/)

The 10mm will be a nice competitor with the Tokina at that focal length and f-stop. If it comes in below $400 US, it'd be a strong option. Also makes a good compliment with the 16mm f/2 they have for APS-C. The 50mm will be the interesting one. It has to be cheaper than the $300 that the Canon/Nikon 50mm cost, and yet it still has to be really good, because Sigma is about to drop a really great 50mm apparently (though obviously at a higher price).

I think the AF lens is a mistake for them. They probably do really good business with their cine lenses, they should stick with being a cheaper Zeiss-style brand

Actually, the world does need a modern 50mm under $1,000 that's usable (for more than just portraits) at 1.4. If Sigma wasn't releasing a 50 of their own Samyang would stand to make a killing if it performs good wide open (i.e. on the same level as their 35mm and 85mm).

To me, it looks like an ultrawide (possibly fisheye) cine lens - the very shallow lens hood and gearing give it away.

It would be interesting to see the pricing for the new AF lens

50 1.4 cine on the left, 10 in the middle and 35 on the right.

Took them long enough to make that standard 50mm..................

Sorry to maybe disillusion you but I believe that these bulbs are not any knobs for T+S.
Reading that there is also the possibility for a cine lens, I believe that the bulbs are the typical gear wheels for focus (and sometimes aperture) that these cine lenses have.
But we'll see tomorrow.

what I really want from samyang is their 8mm in EF-M mount currently i have the EF-S version which I really like but an EF-M one would be so tiny and convenient.

I haven't noticed that shots from my EF 50/1.4 were unusable, not on the old 5dc I got that lens for nor on 5dmk3. Nor I heard from nikonians their new G 50s weren't up to any task. Pixel-peeping amateurs might have something to complain but I still think even after so many years that EF50/1.4 is a bang for a buck lens.

They have been saying for 2 years now that they are going to be making a 50mm Cine T1.2 and 135mm Cine T1.5 but every year they then say not this time around and bring out more wide lenses.

8mm, 14mm, 16mm, 24mm, 35mm,  What next 21mm, 25mm and a 28mm Cine lens?

It would be good if they can cover all ends of the Cine lens spectrum.

Give us a 50mm T2.1, 100mm T2.1, 135mm T2.1, and even a 50mm T2.1 Macro. So that we can cover all focal lengths without needing to resort to purchasing a complete Zeiss Cine Lens set.

Well, now that you mention it - an UWA 3rd party prime is very welcomed, anything but 20/2.8EF  or Zeiss 21/2.8 would be much appreciated. The only 21mm I think it's worthwhile is Minolta MD 21/2.8 but that's only easily  adaptable to Sony FE mount, not so easy on EOS. I love that lens on my Minolta XD11 but would love to see an adequate replacement in digital world.

Just noticed that the 12mm 1:2.0 NCS CS (http://www.dpreview.com/news/2014/03/21/samyang-announces-12mm-1-2-0-ncs-cs-wideangle-for-mirrorless?utm_campaign=internal-link&utm_source=news-list&utm_medium=text&ref=title_0_0) (nice name, BTW :o) is going to be available in the EOS-M mount.  That's the first 3rd party lens I've heard about in the M mount.
