New Samyang “XEEN” Cine lenses for Sony E-mount (24mm, 50mm, 85mm).

The Cinema Lens market is booming and so it’s not a surprise that Samyang will officially unveil their new XEEN Cine lens line on August 10. We already have details about the first three lenses:
There will be a 24mm T/1.5, 50mm T/1.5 and 85mm T/1.5 lens in native E-mount. The price for each of those lenses will be $2495.

A7rII aftermath. Jonathan asks: “A-Mount Loyalists…Will you switch?”

Sometimes A-mount owners blame me for not reporting enough A-mount news. But the truth is there is simply little to tell yet. I rarely get A-mount rumors and as you have seen Sony did not introduce any new A-mount camera the last 15 months (and only two “updated” A-mount lenses). So here we are: Jonathan on SonyAlphaForum puts on table the big question: After the A7rII launch…A-Mount Loyalists…Will you switch?

I was a loyal A-mount user, waiting, and waiting for an update to my a99. The A7R2 was just too good to pass up, and the fact that I didn’t have to sell all my A-mount lenses was a bonus (still using my Sigma fisheye and 500mm, and Zeiss 135 f/1.8). So, money not being an issue, why would an A-mount user not cross over to FE at this point?

So here is the poll:

Sorry, there are no polls available at the moment.

In USA: at Amazon, BHphoto, AdoramaSonyStore US, FocusCamera, Uniquephoto.

How to follow on social networks (and a request to those sites taking content from me)


The only way to not miss rumors and news on is to subscribe our social news feed here:

I would be happy if you join also because there are many sites reposting my content and while that’s ok for me I would like you to get the news first here on the direct source :)

To those sites/bloggers who keep reposting news after reading them on SonyAlphaRumors. You are surely free to do so but I have a kind request:
– Please cite “found via”. I do work to get these news. I would like to get a small credit for that work.
– Please do not write found via “SAR” because that is not the name of my site.
– If I post images from photographers I do that with permission of the author. Do not repost those images without their previous permission.
