More Teasers From Samyang, Three New Lenses?
« 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

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.

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/

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
