As I've been writing for a while about new Samyang lenses, we've expected a 135mm since the 50mm cine lens announcement. I even had a chat with the execs of Walimex/Rokinon (also Samyang) about the mystery lens in their line up, the hints were pointing towards the 135mm then too.
I shared the leak from the US eBay site last night, but here's more details on the lens, following suit of the preceding high quality manual lenses. Here's the specs for the full frame -
- 1:2.0 135mm ED UMC
- Aperture Range: F2.0 ~ 22
- Optical Construction: 11 Elements in 7 Groups
- Min Focusing Distance: 0.8mm (2.62ft)
- Filter Size: 77mm
- Max Diameter: 82mm
- Full-frame coverage
- Angle of View: 18.8° / 11.7°
- Length: 122.1mm
- Weight: 830g
- Price: Under $600
As always, the great optical quality and price are paramount for Samyang's customers, so I'm glad to see they have another affordable lens to add to the lineup!
