Samyang is rumored to announce three new lenses during the April 28 event, although neither of them is the sought-after 50mm cine lens.
A new event related to photography is scheduled to take place on April 28. Samyang has recently posted a teaser photo inviting people to check back on April 28 in order to find out what the company is announcing.
The teaser says that “new products” are coming, so the rumor mill has decided to find out what they are. The result does not surprise anybody, as it appears that three new Saymang lenses are coming at the beginning of next week as well as a special surprise.
Samyang 7.5mm T3.58 cinema fisheye lens to be revealed on April 28
First of all, a Samyang representative has confirmed that there are no autofocus lenses in the works. Additionally, it seems like the 50mm f/1.2 and 50mm cine lens versions are not coming either.
On the other hand, the Samyang 7.5mm T3.8 cinema fisheye lens is among the products that will be unveiled on April 28. It will be aimed at Micro Four Thirds cameras, but support for other mounts is unconfirmed and unlikely.
The new 7.5mm T3.8 cinema fisheye lens will provide a 35mm equivalent of 15mm when mounted on MFT shooters. Unfortunately, the specs, release date, and price details will only be revealed next week.
Samyang 12mm AS UMC cinema lens for mirrorless cameras is also coming next week
The second lens appears to be another cinema model. The most likely candidate is a 12mm cine version of the 12mm f/2 NCS CS lens unveiled in March for mirrorless cameras
The new Samyang 12mm AS UMC cinema lens will also become available for mirrorless systems, just like the regular model. As expected, there is no information regarding availability or specifications.
Samyang 35mm f/1.4 lens and new logo to be unveiled during the event
The third product is a new Samyang 35mm f/1.4 lens which could be aimed at multiple camera systems, such as Sony E-mount, Canon EF, and Nikon F-mount. It is unclear at this point, but we will find out more in a few days.
Last but not least announcement consists of the new Samyang logo. The company has been thinking about a redesigned logo and it seems like the time has come to reveal it.
It is unclear whether it makes a difference to the consumers or not, but the lenses will surely be welcomed by photographers while they are waiting for autofocus models.
