Recently we reported that Samyang (also known under the brand names Rokinon and Bower) may have some new glass in its pipeline, and today the company teased five new lenses on its Facebook page. The lenses in question are the previously mentioned 35mm f1.4 for Canon EF-mount with AE support, a 300mm f6.3 mirror lens for DSLRs, as well as the 7.5mm T3.8, 10mm T3.1 and 12mm T2.2 cine lenses.
Complete information on these lenses must have been accidentally published by Samyang Europe as this article over at Photo Rumors suggests. However, the links leading to the alleged PDF files containing the lenses’ specifications lead nowhere, so we assume that the information has meanwhile been taken down again. However, the three cine lenses are mostly identical to their previously-announced non-cine counterparts except for the different housing.
As for details on the new 35mm f1.4 AE lens and 300mm f6.3 mirror lens, we’l just have to wait another day until the official announcement. We’ll keep you posted!
