Samyang has announced the availability – for the month of December – of the first two lenses from their Premium XP product line: the 85mm f/1.2 and the 14mm f/2.4.
Presented last September, just prior to Photokina 2016, Samyung’s Premium XP – eXcellence in Performance – lenses are entirely manual and have been designed to accommodate very high resolution sensors – more than 50Mpx. We were able to confirm this during our recent field trial of the ultra wide angle 14mm f/2.4 mounted on the Canon 5Ds R. Both lenses boast a high quality of optical design – which includes aspheric lenses and a UMC – Ultra Multi Coating – to minimize flare. Their circular diaphragm consists of 9 aperture blades in order to produce an harmonious bokeh.
The official price for each of Samyang’s Premium XP lenses is 1000$. At the moment, only the availability for the Canon EF mount has been announced; availability for the Nikon F and Sony E mounts remains unknown.
Samyang products are distributed in our country by Rodolfo Biber. More information can be found on the product webpages for Samyang 85mm f/1.2 and Samyang 14mm f/2.4.
The Samyang lens brand expanded its range of lenses presenting their first macro lens for full frame sensors, more specifically the Samyang 100mm F2.8 ED UMC MACRO for photography and its counterpart version for video, the Samyang 100mm T3.1 VDSLR ED UMC MACRO.
After several days of speculations about Samyang’s new lens, the rumors have finally been confirmed: the South Korean manufacturer has announced the launch of a new Samyang film lens—the 50mm V-DSLR T1.5 AS UMC—to be officially presented at the Photokina 2014 fair in Cologne, Germany.
This new lens will allow photographers as well as filmmakers to take advantage of a focal distance between the company’s 35mm and 85mm lenses, given that, in addition to the T1.5 for film, the f/1.4 photo lens will be launched simultaneously. Thus, we have a range of light lenses with an exceptionally broad focal range that meet the expectations of its most demanding users.
Of course, its excellent brightness value (T1.5 for film, f/1.4 for photos) makes it an ideal tool for low-light conditions, assuring great image quality and a smaller depth of field. The lens has been designed for cameras and camcorders with a 24x35mm or smaller sensor and has a 46.2-degree field of view.
Samyang has been announcing new lenses for a couple of days. Rumors talked about the arrival of new lens with autofocus, but the rumors were wrong. What the Asian manufacturer has done is inform about the availability of the Samyang 10mm f/2.8, announced on December last year. They also presented three new objectives: the Samyang 8mm F2.8 UMC FISH-EYE II, Samyang 8mm T3.1 V-DSLR UMC Fish-eye II and Samyang 12mm 1:2.0 NCS CS. Remember that this brand is also marketed under the name Rokinon or Bower depending on the country.
The Samyang 10mm 1:2.8 ED AS CS NCS is the first lens that features Samyang’s anti-glare nanocrystal coating system, superior to the UMC technology used up until now. It is a wide-angle lens with a wide aperture and the manufacturer has described it as ideal for landscape architecture and indoor photography. It will hit the market on April for the following mounts: Canon EF, Nikon F, Pentax K, Sony A, Canon M, Fujifilm X, Samsung NX and Sony E and micro four thirds systems. It will cost approximately $529.
Next July, Samyang will release their 16-mm f2 and 300-mm f6.3 for mirrorless and reflex cameras with APS-C sensor. This is part of the company’s plan to broaden their catalog of manual lenses, which until not too long ago didn’t offer much beyond full-frame models.
According to the new info, the 16-mm f2 features a structure of 13 elements, organized in 11 groups; it offers a 24-mm angle of view ant it will cost around 535 USD. It will be available for both mirrorless and reflex cameras.
