We all like the A7-A7r but the biggest problem is the limited and expensive lens range. But Samyang announced that they will release five prime lenses for the new FF E-mount system within…two months! Here are the primes that will be released:
Samyang 14mm f/2.8 ED AS IF UMC
Samyang 24mm f/1.4 ED AS IF UMC
Samyang T-S 24mm f/3.5 ED AS UMC
Samyang 35mm f/1.4 AS UMC
Samyang 85mm f/1.4 AS IF UMC
These lenses will be manual focusing, cheap and deliver a high quality performance. Right what we need! The only issue…these lenses are actually designed for DSLR cameras and what they will do is just to make them E-mount. It means lenses will be big. A proper E-mount designed lens would have been smaller and more likeable.
Currently Samyang already offers four Cine E-mount FF lenses:
14mm T3.1 Cine Lens for Sony E sold as Samyang (eBay), Rokinon (eBay), Bower (eBay).
24mm T1.5 Cine Lens for Sony E sold as Samyang (eBay), Rokinon (eBay), Bower (eBay).
35mm T1.5 Cine Lens for Sony E sold as Samyang (eBay), Rokinon (eBay), Bower (eBay).
85mm T1.5 Cine Lens for Sony E sold as Samyang (eBay), Rokinon (eBay), Bower (eBay).

Samyang Sony E-mount series will allow all Sony NEX owners to fully experience high quality optics without additional adapters. Giving the fact, that lenses are prepared for 35mm format, they will perfectly work with not only APS-C cameras, such as Sony NEX 7, but also with the newest Sony Alpha 7R and Sony Alpha 7.
