No sign of price, but I would imagine at least cheaper than the 24 TS-E mk1, and therfore substantially cheaper than the TS-E 24 mk2.

Lets hope to lives up the precedent of Samyangs recent sterling efforts. 

Metering issues aside (TTL can get screwed up a bit by the shift, sometimes requires increasing compensation with increasing shift) this particular Samyang isn't that far behind the banded offerings, which are also MF only...

If it's sharp enough, i'd actually even prefer this over the 24LII.
Why?

Auto Aperture may be good for action, focussing wide open and only stopping down for the shot.
But for macro, and even more for T/S, give me manual aperture every day (until of course, Canon can make a DOF-Preview-Lock feature, although they probably can't, seeing as it's electronic and holding the aperture narrow might burn out a motor or something).
So even if it's over $1k (still less than half the 24LII), and if it's 'almost' as sharp, i'd be going this one...
Too much gear, too little space.

Stop down, depress preview, similtaneously decouple and turn enough to disengage the contacts...

Not ideal but if theres one lens where this isn't a huge hindrence to operation, it's a TS-E with its rotating mount.

By Golly, its appearance is very similar to my Canon TS-E 24mm II.  I hope to heavens the Samyang is at least 92-95% as sharp as Canon without major mechanical issues, then I would be able to sell my Canon TS-E and get this instead..

This is great news, I've always wanted a TS-E but could never justify spending the money for such a specialty lens, but if this is priced anything like Samyang's other offerings I may have to pick one up.  Any word on price?   I'd assume less than $1k for sure.

Knowing what Samyang prime lenses sell for, I'd hazard a guess at around $750-$800

Anyone at Photokina have any updates for this lens in regards to pricing and availability by chance?

Thanks!

testet it at photokina 4 hours ago.  really a great lens!  1.4x extender works and makes it very usable and like a 200-600mm zoom.  didn't ask about availability unfortunately.

Can't find if others have posted this already, but the release of the 24TS has apparently been pushed back to March 2013  :(
5DIII, 17-40, 24-105, 70-200/4IS, 50/1.8II, 85/1.8 and a truckload of gimmicks and bits.
