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.


That's right - this 12mm is the WA to get for my NEX system too!  8)

You've been sleeping too long, they already have a 24mm f/3.5 tilt-shift lens, but if you are waiting for another one, then go back to sleep ;D

Before complaining about the price, does anyone have links to sample pictures? If it can hold its own up against a Zeiss Distagon 2.8/15mm or a Canon 14mm 2.8 L II then maybe the price is justified. You cannot judge the lens without evidence.

Re: autofocus
I assume this lens is primarily intended for landscape so how essential is autofocusing going to be?
On a APS-C body with a 10mm lens:
at f/2.8 (wide open): hyperfocal distance = 1.89m (Everything from 3ft to infinity will be in focus)
at f/8 (Near DLA):    hyperfocal distance = 0.67m (Everything from 1.6ft to infinity will be in focus)
at f/11 (Past DLA):  hyperfocal distance = 0.49m (Everything from 8" to infinity will be in focus)

I don't understand how having AF on a lens of this design would make it significantly better. Someone please explain what I'm missing.

BH has them for pre-order in the US.  Last week there was a note about Mar 25 availability, but its gone this week.  Might be like the Tamron 150-600 where supply has not caught up to demand so it remains on preorder.

I'll have to be patient. I generally (but not always) wait for the price of new camera equipment to come down, and good tests to appear before I buy. Somehow I'm worried that retailers here may forego this lens all together which would be a shame.... Too many offerings from Samyang in the same arena?

Damn that lens looks tasty - and tickles my GAS  8)
