Samyang announces 'AE' 35mm F1.4 for Canon, and 300mm F6.3 for DSLRs
Samyang has announced five new manual focus lenses, including a revised 'AE' version of its Canon-mount 35mm F1.4 which allows electronic aperture setting from the camera body. Meanwhile the Reflex 300mm F6.3 UMC CS is a compact mirror lens designed for APS-C SLR cameras, which will be available in Canon EOS, Nikon F, Sony Alpha and Four Thirds mounts. Finally there are three cinema versions of existing photo lenses - a 10mm T3.1 for APS-C SLRs, a 12mm T2.2 for mirrorless cameras, and a 7.5mm T3.8 fisheye for Micro Four Thirds.
Samyang 35mm F1.4 AS UMC (Canon AE version)
The Canon AE version of the 35mm F1.4 AS UMC includes an AE chip and an aperture control motor. This allows the aperture to be set from the camera body; the viewfinder indicator light can also be used to assist manual focusing. In all other respects the lens is the same as the existing Canon-mount version - click here for full specifications.
Samyang Reflex 300mm F6.3 UMC CS
The Reflex 300mm F6.3 UMC CS is a compact, lightweight mirror (or 'catadioptric') lens which is designed for APS-C SLRs. It's a different lens to the company's existing 300mm F6.3 design for mirrorless cameras, with a revised 8 element, 8 group optical design to compensate for the longer flange distance from the sensor to the lens mount. It'll be available in Canon EF, Nikon F, Sony Alpha and Four Thirds mounts.
Samyang 12mm T2.2 Cine NCS CS
The 12mm T2.2 is a wideangle prime for mirrorless cameras with APS-C or smaller sensors. It's essentially a rehoused version of the 12mm 1:2.0 NCS CS, with geared focus and aperture rings that are marked to be read from the side of the camera, and with the aperture calibrated in T-stops. It'll be available in Canon EF-M, Fujifilm X, Samsung NX, Sony E and Micro Four Thirds mounts.
Samyang 10mm T3.1 VDSLR ED AS NCS CS
The 10mm T3.1 is a wideangle prime for APS-C SLRs, based on the 10mm F2.8 ED AS NCS CS. It offers the same video-friendly external design features as the 12mm T2.2, including geared focus and aperture rings with markings readable from the side of the camera. It'll be made in a wide range of mounts for both SLR and mirrorless cameras: Canon EF, Canon EF-M, Nikon F, Pentax K, Sony Alpha, Sony E, Four Thirds, MIcro Four Thirds, Samsung NX, and Fujifilm X.
Samyang 7.5mm T3.8 Cine UMC Fish-eye
The 7.5mm T3.8 Cine UMC Fish-eye is a video version of the existing 7.5mm F3.5 UMC MFT Fish-eye for Micro Four Thirds. Again it features geared focus and aperture rings with side-readable markings, and an aperture calibrated in T-stops.
