Rokinon Samyang Announce New Manual Lenses

Rokinon today has announced a few new manual focus wide-angle and fish-eye lenses. These new uber wide lenses are perfect for many of the mirror-less cameras that we struggle to find affordable wide angle lenses (i.e BlackMagic Pocket Cinema, and the new GH4 will have a slightly different crop factor as well).

The 8mm Fish-eye II lens is the second generation of this popular lens for mirror less cameras. The lens's mirrorless mounts include Canon EF-M mount, Fujifilm X mount, Samsung NX mount, and Sony E mount

The 10mm f/2.8 ED AS NCS CS wide-angle lens is presented for mirrorless and DSLR (APS-C) mounts. The lens is available in Canon EF, Pentax K, Sony A, Canon EF-M, Fujifilm X, Samsung NX, Sony E, and Micro Four Thirds mounts.

Next up for mirror-less cameras we have the new 12mm f/2.0 NCS CS lens. Unlike the above two lenses, the 12mm accepts front filters and provides a 67mm diameter thread. The new Rokinon lens is available in Canon EF-M, Fujifilm X, Samsung NX, Sony E and Micro Four Thirds mounts.

Finally the new 8mm T3.1 Cine UMC Fish-Eye II lens for Video use has a clickless aperture ring for smooth transitions between stops and geared aperture / focus rings to enable the use of a follow focus. This new Cine Lens is available for mirrorless Canon EF-M, Fujfilm X, Samsung NX, and Sony E mounts.

    I just wish they'd come up: both B&H and Adorama have them listed for pre-order. Any word on this?

    @Paul - It all sounds wide, but one thing to remember that these numbers apply differently for different crop factors. The 12mm would be around 36mm (equivalent) on the BlackMagic Pocket Cinema Camera. The new GH4 may have more than 2x crop factor which means the 12mm would be around 30mm (equivalent).

    Why all the extreme wides? I know they have the 85, but they do not offer anything like a 35, 50, or 100. Would be nice to have some cine primes for close ups.

    Looking forward to the 12mm, it's a much more affordable option than Olympus and SLR Magic, and I've yet to be disappointed by my Rokinon lenses. These are awesome options for the GH4 crowd!
