Images of a soon-to-be-announced XP Samyang 50mm f/1.2 EF have leaked out.</p>
<p>This lens will be available for EF mount. We don’t see any markings that would suggest this lens is going to have autofocus, so it’s likely going to be similar to the manual focus XP 85mm f/1.2.</p>
<p>It’s possible this will only be for the EF mount.</p>

I hope they make a cine T1.3 version of this lens on the rokinon side. It would be very popular among the low budget and indie film world where they already sell a ton of thier cinema lenses.

Should be nice. The XP 85 has really nice rendering and as long as you can work with manual focus (or even better, if you prefer it) then it smokes the Canon 85 1.2. The Canon 50mm f/1.2 is kind of a technical dog in many regards—nice rendering, but barrel distortion and some pretty horrific aberration—so if this can follow their XP 85's example and just flat beat the Canon 50 while also keeping that nice rendering, we have a winner.
(Especially as the AF on the Canon 1.2s is so bad it makes you want to use them manually all the time anyway... but then, they have awful manual focus, too.)

So who buys all these Milvus, Otus Samyang-lenses-at-£600 for still photography ? Do they use LV or are they mainly by people who are using dslrs / mirrorless for video ? I can understand expensive, modern wide angle manual lenses but once we get to telephoto I'm baffled

LV mostly, actually. I bought some used Classic Zeiss primes to slow down my personal photography and I also very much like the aesthetics of those primes as well as colours and overall contrast/rendering/pop thingy.
