I was really excited to see this lens coming for one huge reason: towards the end of the video I saw this and took a screenshot of it:
This is the first third party lens I have seen that supports the EOS-M mount. That's exciting, because it speaks to at least some confidence that the mount isn't going to be abandoned. I've already put in a request to review the lens when it launched in an M mount, so here's hoping that will happen.
I thought that Samyang 16mm f/2.0 ED AS UMC CS and 300mm f/6.3 ED UMC CS Reflex Mirror Lens was the first third party lenses for Canon M mount.
I checked the Samyang site, and you are right, although I've not yet seen a retailer selling them in that mount.
Terrific news! Thanks for posting this.
I had no idea any third party manufacturers were looking to add lenses for the EOS-M mount. Obviously Samyang feels there is sufficient market for M mount lenses, maybe other third parties will follow suit?
I'm not sure if I would prefer EF-M dedicated Samyang 10/2.8 over the normal one (with EF mount) + adapter.
I've checked some sample images taken with this new 300/6.3 Mirror lens, and it produces such interesting bokeh effect, just like the rest of it's family , only this one seems to be a bit sharper.
