Rokinon Teasing a New Lens (most probably it’s a 135mm)

rok

Rokinon (aka Samyang and other names) is teasing a new lens on Facebook.

Three digits and all odd – we speculate it will be a 135mm lens. Waiting to learn the speed. I think it will not be a long awaited auto-focusing lens.

Zeiss Apo Sonnar T* 2/135 ZE DxOMarked (ultra-high performer)

 

Sonnar T* 2/135

DxOMark reviewed the Zeiss Apo Sonnar T* 2/135 ZE lens, a luxury, manual focus lens that sells for over $2000.

The lens was tested on a Canon EOS 5D Mark III. This is a “ultra-high performer”, the Zeiss Apo Sonnar T* 2/135

[…] achieves an excellent DxOMark score of 38 points putting in first place in our rankings of fixed focal length telephoto lenses on the Canon EOS 5D Mk III in our database.

DxOMark’s conclusion:

The Zeiss Sonnar T* 2/135 is the best corrected and sharpest lens of its type in this focal length, and it’s also one of the best performing model we’ve seen so far on the Canon EOS 5D Mk III.

But, it’s up against tough competition from the Canon EF 135mm f2L USM. Not only is that lens close in optical performance it’s lighter, smaller and has the additional flexibility of auto-focus. It’s also more accessible in terms of pricing.

Be that as it may, the Zeiss is a superb performer optically and appears good value when compared to other models from the company.

Indeed, the Zeiss score better than equivalent or similar Canon lenses.

Sigma 135mm f/2 DG OS Coming For Photokina 2014?

Sigma 135mm f/2

Sigma 18-35mm f/1.8 DC HSM

Rumors have word that Sigma will announce a new prime lens next year, a 135mm f/2 DG OS, part of the “Art” line-up. The lens is said to be announced at Photokina, September 2014. Moreover, it appears that Sigma will  release more high performing lenses next year.

I hope the rumor is true. Sigma released some amazing lenses recently (35mm f/1.4 DG HSM , 18-35mm f/1.8 DC HSM and 24-105mm f/4 DG OS HSM) and we all hope there will be more lenses with such excellent optical properties.
