Cine version of the Samyang 135mm pictured above.

Korean lens brand Samyang has released details of a 135mm lens it will bring to market with versions for stills and video photographers. The Samyang 135mm f/2.0 ED UMC stills lens will be accompanied by the Samyang 135mm T2.2 ED UMC VDSLR for cine and videographers.

Both models will feature 11 elements in 7 groups, including a single element made in ED glass, and a nine-bladed iris that the company claims will help to deliver 'great bokeh for close head and shoulder portrait work'.

The principle difference between the two models will be that the cine version will have geared focus and aperture rings to integrate with video rigs, and the aperture ring will be click-less.

The lenses are capable of covering full frame sensors, and will be available in Canon EF, Nikon (AE), Sony E and MFT mounts initially, with the company promising Sony A, Pentax K, Fujifilm X, Canon M, Samsung NX and Four Thirds at a later date.

The Samyang 135mm will be available in February for the UK, and will cost £389.99 for the stills version. The cine version will cost £429.99.
