Third Party Lenses

Samyang to release an AF 14mm f/2.8 for the RF mount

It looks like Samyang is getting ready to announce an AF 14mm f/2.8 lens for Canon’s RF mount.

The sooner third party manufacturers get lenses out for the RF mount, the better things will be for EOS R shooters and for the manufacturers themselves.

The Samyang 12/2.0 for Fuji X is nice!! This would be a great addition. I love this focal length too!!

It's nice to finally be able to make some positive posts on some of these rumor sites. I like where the Canon system is going!!

I wonder if its an EF lens with a revised mount for the RF bodies. Basically, a built-in adapter. The spacing between the rearmost lens element and the sensor will tell the story.

Is this the same lens that was announced? This was a review from August. He must have had a preview copy, as I was under the impression this lens was already out...
*Edit: Nevermind, it's clearly different.

To answer my own question, I looked at the diagrams of both the EF and RF 14/2.8 autofocus lenses. It is a new design.

RF first, then EF (keep in mind the flange distance is much greater for the EF than the RF mount...):

Wow, interesting new design. I have the EF version and like it a lot. I'll look forward to comparisons and pricing.

I hope Sigma and Tamron will make RF lens, their new mirrorless lenses for Sony E mount are pretty impressive.

It looks to be an RF-mount adjusted version of the Samyang 14mm F/2.8 FE lens.


Sharp in the center, not that sharp in the corners (perfectly sharp for cropped 4k video though).
