Hi!

Than this new lens might be something for you (I still use heavy Canon stuff ), but it's AF. Unfortunately I only found this info form Switzerland (in German), so you might have to use an online translator:https://www.cetoday.ch/news/2021-04-06/samyang-praesentiert-mini-objektiv-fuer-sternenfotografie

The new Samyang AF 24mm F1.8 FE is only 230g heavy - or light - and is around 580 CHF or 520 EU, including VAT. The quality has to be seen once it will become available.

Based on the description it sounds like the lens will be focus by wire and will probably require electrical communication with the camera, which will prevent me from using it with the ASI2600mc, unfortunate if true. The small/lightweight nature of the lens is definitely appealing, we'll have to see how it performs when it's released.
