(SR5 updated) Correction: Samyang will launch a fast 35mm Full Frame lens for Canon (and for Sony coming later). 10mm coming too.

Image found by CanonWatch.

UPDATED: DicaHub (translated) clarified the rumors and said while they are sure there will be a fast 35mm lens they still don’t know if it’s an autofocus lens. The lens will be announced tomorrow morning (March 21). They will unveil a Canon mount version with a Nikon and Sony versions likely to follow later during the year. One more thing: I read on other rumor sites that this could be a f/1.2 fast 35mm lens!

There will be also a new Samyang 10mm f/2.8 ED AS NCS CS (manual focusing) lens and the picture can be seen here:

I still don’t know if the 35mm autofocus lens will come for both A and E-mounts!

P.S.: Currently Samyang sells their lenses under different brands:
Samyang
Walimex
Rokinon
Opteka
Falcon
Vivitar
Bower

Sigma Bielorussia says the 50mm ART lens will cost $790.

I don’t know how much we should trust this but Sigma Bielorussia is the first Sigma site that unveils the pricing of the new 50mmf /1.4 ART lens. it should cost around $790. The lens will ship in May. $790 would be a super low price for a lens whos aim is to almost match the Zeiss Otus lens ($3999) performance!

(SR5) Samyang announcement on March 21. Likely first AF lenses to come!

Samyang launched that teaser image on their Facebook page. A couple of weeks ago I told you that Samyang is ready to launch their first autofocus lenses. And this is likely what athey will announce now! It will be exciting news for Sony too because Samyang is currently the only third party lenses offering APS-C and Full Frame lenses for the A and E-mount cameras (including FE lenses for the new A7-A7r series).

P.S.: Currently Samyang sells their lenses under different brands:
Samyang
Walimex
Rokinon
Opteka
Falcon
Vivitar
Bower

(SR5) The Sony 2014 rumored camera and lens timeline roundup (A77 successor, FE high end camera and lenses, RX and 4K).

The Sony roadmap that hinted a new A-mount camera release. A camera positioned between the A77 and A99.

I don’t want you to get lost on rumors so here is a roundup of SR5 rumors only. This is what you can expect in 2014:

1) Sony A77 successor. The camera will be announced in early May and is supposed to have a terrific AF speed. It will hit the stores in June.
2) New FE lenses. Three new Sony FE lenses will come in 2014. If we are “lucky” two of them will be announced along the A77 announcement.
3) New Full Frame E-mount camera(s). Definitely to come right before Photokina. And they will not be a direct replacement of the A7-A7r cameras.
4) New 4k photocamera. There is definitely at least one 4K capable camera to come. No 100% reliable specs yet. Coming end of summer.
5) New RX cameras. One new Full Frame and probably new RX100 cameras to come too. No exact announcement date yet (but RX FF likely at Photokina).
6) New manual focusing Zeiss FE lenses. Definitely to be announced at Photokina. Likely “based” on the great Zeiss ZM (here on eBay) series.

Still to be confirmed as SR5: A-mount Full Frame. I still didn’t manage to get 99% reliable info about it.

Robert:My name is Bob and I work at a photographic store in New York city. Everyday customers come into the store to try out cameras and most of the time they end up taking photos of me. I’ve started to assemble a collection of those photos and post them online. Recently a prototype of the Hasselblad H5D-50C was brought in for the medium format department to preview. A photo from that camera is the newest addition to my collection.

Graham: <“em>Like you, I’m a photographer and use Sony cameras. In fact, I bought the Sony A7R shortly after it was released, and just yesterday I finished a Sony A7R Review with Canon EF Lenses: http://www.A7Review.com YouTube video review: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SMOHrtFp2ko

Massimo:new impressions of the A7R with the 17TS: http://www.thevisualexperience.org/web/sony-a7r-canon-17-ts-e-iridient-developer/

Alexandre:Hello Andrea, My review of the Sony A7r / Zeiss 55mmF1.8 has already more then 13 000 views on Youtube. You can share it if you like. I included 12 photos samples (with Exif Data) and 5 video samples. I made as well a test of the famous shutter sound in 7 different environment with different levels of noise.

Bruce:Thank you, Andrea! BTW, I’ve been shooting Sony exclusively since dumping Canon gear almost two years ago. Here’s a video I shot with a NEX-7/Leica 90 f2 as well as an a99 with the Zeiss 135mm f1.8: https://vimeo.com/74488196
