CR seems out of the loop on this one. I've never heard any speculation on a f/2…only a f/1.4 or f/1.2
Though I do remember a fb post by them a month ago saying a 50mm 1.2 was still a ways out.
If the 28mm T.1.4 is the same lens as the 28mm F2.8 just with some funky gears on it.
Wouldn't that mean that a 50mm 1.4 would be a T1.4 or possibly around an F2-2.8, depending on size?
I think you have that backwards. A lens' T-stop will always be slower/smaller than it's F-stop, as a T-stop is basically the F-number adjusted to account for the light transmittance of the lens (which is always less than 100%). A 28mm f/1.4 could be a a T*2.8, but not the other way around. Regardless, the original post denotes f/
2. If it does end up being a 50mm f/2, it's going to sell horribly lol.
I wouldn't be surprised is this turns out to be a different FL than 50mm or just another APS-C lens. After the release of the Sigma 50mm 1.4, Samyang probably knows it has to go back to the drawing board to be viable. There's already a ton of pretty darn good legacy glass (Nikon Ais 50mm f1.4 & f1.2, Takumar 50mm f1.4, Canon FD 50mm 1.4 and 1.2L, etc.) in the price range Samyang has historically existed. Their godsend, though, is that their market base is moving to mirrorless (the GH4 and A7s), and their lenses save the user from having to buy the pricey Metabones adapters.
