Samyang Announces Rokinon 50mm f/1.2 and 21mm f/1.4 For Multiple Mounts

Samyang Optics has announced two new lenses due out this October under their Rokinon branding. The first piece of glass announced is a 50mm f/1.2 lens, while the second is a 21mm f/1.4. Both products are compatible with Canon EF-M, Fujifilm X, Micro Four Thirds, and Sony E mounts. The lenses are entirely manual focus but feature aspherical elements, with the 21mm housing an extra-low dispersion element, for increased image clarity.

Samyang Looks to Have Canceled Plans for a 50mm f/1.2

About a year ago, Samyang took to Facebook and confirmed that a 50mm f/1.2 was on the roadmap, and would quite possibly see the light of day sometime in 2014. Well, if you've been holding out for that release, hoping that a third-party 50mm f/1.2 option would arrive, you might have been waiting for nothing.
