B&H Explora posted a nice introductory article about Samyang’s new prime lenses, the 10mm f/2.8 ED AS NCS CS, 12mm f/2.0 NCS CS, and 8mm f/2.8 UMC Fish-Eye II lenses. The former comes with Canon EF mount, the latter with Canon EF-M mount.
Please note that Samyang lenses are branded with various names (Samyang, Walimex, Rokinon, Opteka, Falcon, Vivitar, Bower).
Rokinon has announced several new manual focus lenses for both still photography and HD video capture. Starting with the photo lenses, there is the new second-generation 8mm f/2.8 for mirrorless cameras, a 10mm f/2.8 lens for mirrorless and APS-C format DSLR cameras, and a 12mm f/2.0 lens for mirrorless cameras.
