Samyang To Announce First AF Lens This Week?
« on: March 18, 2014, 08:58:09 PM »

Samyang announced on their Facebook page that they will be announcing a new lens on March 21, 2014.


It’s suggested by a few people that this will be Samyang’s first foray into autofocus and it will appear on a prime lens and not a zoom.

Maybe that's why we keep seeing these lenses on sale. I would be even more tempted by the 14mm with autofocus.

Good news.. looks like their 10mm/2.8?

Sigma and Samyang.. sooner or later a Chinese brand might join..

A future of high/decent quality & cheap 3rd party lenses..

Actually Samyang Asia's facebook page said it won't be AF. They say its a rumour and fake news, and its not going to happen.

By the picture posted by them, it looks like the front end of a wide angle... probably the 10mm f2.8 they've announced already.

...but I'll keep my hopes up for a 50mm  ;D

Well it would make perfect sense for someone to come out with a really good MF wide angle right after I buy a Zeiss

A hypothetical Samyang 50mm F1.2 with autofocus that works well, good sharpness and contrast at F1.2, and costing less than $1000 is a dream. In fact, I'd be happy with a 50mm F1.4 that is so good with Zeiss Otus, but costing only $500. :P

If true, it looks it'll be a 10mm f/2.8 according to this site.

I'll get it even if it only has an AF confirmation chip if it'll be as good as the Zeiss otus but $500 or less.

I think that AF confirmation chip would be too little (it'a DIY thing) and autofocus is a bit too much to expect (for the price).
How about electronic aperture?
