Samyang next lens will be an amazing 24mm f/1.4!

While we are all waiting for Sony and Zeiss to release new high quality lenses Samyang is not resting at all. After releasing that 35mm f/1.4 super quality and super cheap manual lens they now announced first on facebook than on their website that their next lens will be the 24mm f/1.4 fast wide angle! It will have 13 elements (in 12 groups) including four ED elements and two aspheric lenses. The Samyang 24mm should be in Stock by end of this year with Nikon, Canon, Pentax, Samsung NX, Sony Alpha and Four Thirds mounts.

Those are the two current Rokinon/Samyang lenses I recommend to you:
1) The 35mm f/1.4: In US you can find it as Rokinon at Amazon (Click here), Adorama (Click here), BHphoto (Click here) and on eBay (Click here). In Europe the name is Samyang and you can find it on eBay (Click here) and with the name Wallimex again on eBay (Click here).
2) The 85mm f/1.4: You can get for $274 on Amazon (Click here), branded with the name Rokinon on eBay (Click here) and branded with the name Samyang on eBay (Click here).

Sony Tidbits (New NEX-C3 reviews)

The video on top has been made by WeAreHQ TV: “Livin Proof is London’s best Hip Hop night. Check out the antics of this months event. Filmed on the new Sony FS100 with a Sony 50mm f1.4 and Minolta 16mm Fisheye. ALL 30db GAIN. The club was so dark I needed the camera to see where my friends were. Awesome camera.
You can check the price of the camera at Digitalrev, B&H,, and

ThePhoBlographer (Click here) posted a new NEX-C3 review: “The autofocus is quick, silent and accurate but isn’t very smart based on the composition. The ergonomics are quite good and the camera feels nice in the hand. However, I wish it felt a bit tougher and more manly. In the end though, I can only mostly say good things about the Sony NEX C3 and recommend it to those that want to start out or perhaps shoot in Aperture mode all day (and night).
NEX-C3 in status check links at Amazon, B&H, Adorama, J&R, eBay.
