Rokinon/Samyang appears to be teasing a new lens on their Facebook page. 135mm seems to be the most logical choice, though there’s no word on the speed of the lens.
We’re still waiting to see them launch an autofocus lens.
We’re told the new Samyang lens will actually be a 50mm f/1.4. (thanks!)
Samyang has started with the teasers for an announcement on August 26, 2014. It is expected that they will announce a 50mm f/2 lens for their VDSLR line.
It doesn’t look like we’ll see their first autofocus lens this time around.
The new lenses from Samyang that go on sale tomorrow: Samyang 35mm f/1.4 Canon AE, 300mm f/6.3 Mirror DSLR photo lenses and a VDSLR/Cinema series is set to be released on April 29th 2014. Samyang 10mm T3.1, 12mm T2.2 and 7.5mm T3.8.
While all of these lenses are manual focus, the Canon AE 35mm f/1.4 does have auto exposure.

According to DicaHub, Samyang will be announcing the following lenses on April 28, 2014.
- Samyang 35mm f/1.4 AE for various mounts.
- 7.5mm T3.8 Fisheye Cinema Lens for Micro 4/3
- 12mm Cinema Lens for mirrorless systems.
Samyang is once again teasing a lens announcement via their Facebook page. “Samyang Optics invites you to join the journey to the next level of creativity on April 28th 2014. We hope you to enjoy our proud new products”
It looks like it’ll be more than one lens, perhaps this is when Samyang will announce their first autofocus lenses? Or perhaps a zoom lens or two?
