Kinda bummed that Samyang did not announce anything for us FF shooters, such as a 12mm f/4 or other yummies.

...Over $500 for a manual focus lens that is only 1/2 stop faster than a similar priced zoom that is already well regarded...

The Tokina f2.8 zoom is just as fast, about the same price, has autofocus, also fits a full frame and is equally well-regarded as well. So, I agree with you:

A very anticlimactic announcement after all the hype.

$500 for a 10mm f2.8 manual focus prime vs. OEM 11mm f4.0 AF zoom IS with a street price of ~$450   :-\

Assuming optically the prime is very good, I still don't understand why anyone would pick up the RokiBowYang, even at a discounted street price of say $350.  I own a few of these Korean made lenses and while sharpness peaks like crazy in the mid range apertures, much is left to be desired up to 2 stops from wide open.

oops, i realize not everyone cares to shoot with the M.  it's technically not EF-S compatible :)
M, 5Dc, 1Dx, some lenses, a few lights

The 10mm f2.8 isn't really that interesting for an M since its really the EF-S version with a built-in adapter with an overall length over 130mm and weight over 600g.  It's like putting any other EF/EF-S lens on the M.

Now the 12mm f2.0 is strictly a CSC/mirrorless lens so it is much smaller - only 59mm and 245g.  That's more the size of the other EF-M lenses.  This could be an interesting addition to my M kit down the road if I'm willing to give up AF and AE for 2 stops in a wide angle lens.  Haven't found myself needing this yet and I already have the 11-22.

For all those who have been asking for a UWA prime lens specifically designed for APSC, here it is ... but the price is not competitive for a manual lens, I guess it might come down in a few months.
Assuming optically the prime is very good, I still don't understand why anyone would pick up the RokiBowYang, even at a discounted street price of say $350.
Yep, the Tokina 11-16mm is also f/2.8 and can be had for the same price. And for that I get auto-focus, auto-aperture, existing lens profiles, and a great, proven lens. Oh, and I can use filters.

This thing is gonna have to go <$300 to sell well.

Now the 12mm f2.0
When they make that lens cine, it's gonna kill off all their 16mm f/2 sales. Cause the main users of it are video people, and a lot of them are moving to m4/3 mount.

That said, I'll eventually own that lens for m4/3 if its optically strong.

Looks like it is intended to compete with the Zeiss Touit 12mm f2.8 lens on some mounts.

10mm 2.8 on EFS is not needed with the Tokina 11-16 in place ... But this one is interesting:

Samyang 12 f/2.0 (yes ...  2.0) for EOS-M

And it's only 260g !  This would revive my interest in my EOS-M.

I waited for such a lens for a very long time.

But a this price I rather take the Canon 10-22. AF + Zoom at lower price and same weight and size.

If it comes down to about 350€ I might get one.
+1000 I was about to say something similar for the 10-22.
