Reminder; Samyang 10mm F2.8 rectilinear lens.
Jan 13, 2013

Hi,

At Photokina Samyang announced the introduction of the 10mm F2.8 rectilinear lens which was due to be released at the end of 2012,well, still no sign of it,but it can't be far away now!  In my opinion this lens will sell like hot cakes as no other lens matches it's aperture at that focal length.The Samyung fisheye (stereographic) lens in the Pentax mount also has one contact on the bayonet so the camera can control the aperture,maybe it will have the same. The lack of AF is a non issue at this focal-length.

This post is just a reminder to those who are looking for a lens of that focal length with a large 2.8 aperture, hopefully we won't have to long to wait.

My guess is that it will be in the 400/500 euros price range.
