Rumor: Samyang Working On A 50mm f/1.2 Lens (To Be Released In 2014)

Samyang Working On A 50mm f/1.2 Lens

Samyang working on a 50mm f/1.2 Lens? The question above has been posted on Samyang Asia’s Facebook page.

And the answer was, yes, Samyang (aka Rokinon) is working on a new 50mm f/1.2 lens, Canon mount among other mount types. This fits with a rumor I reported in the past (click here), but then the talk was about a 50mm f/1.4. It will not be an imminent release: As Samyang Asia writes on Facebook, the lens will be here “perhaps 2014”.

Samyang/Rokinon is known to build lenses with high optical performance, and that have to be manually operated. Their latest product is the brand new 35mm f/1.4 Aspherical Lens ($479) pictured below.
