About a month ago, we reported on rumors that Samyang was going to start making AF lenses under an all new logo “very soon,” and it looks like “very soon” is finally about to arrive.
In a teaser image posted yesterday to the company’s Facebook (see above), Samyang simply says “coming soon” above the date March 21st and the (soon-to-be old?) Samyang logo. Accompanying the teaser is the message “New stuff from Samyang coming soon, really soon. Stay tuned!”
With that little official information, it’s hard to draw any surefire conclusions, but the consensus seems to be that AF lenses are on the way.
Another interesting bit of speculation courtesy of SLR Lounge is that this might finally be the debut of the long-awaited Samyang 50mm f/1.2, but we’ve not seen any other coverage to corroborate this so it might just be wishful thinking.
What do you hope comes of this announcement? We won’t have to wait long to find out, but feel free to share your Samyang-related hopes in the comments down below.
