Samyang announced the new Full frame Samyang 35mm f1.4 AS UMC AE fixed lens.

Available mounts

Will be available for Canon, Nikon, Pentax, Sony, Fuji, Sony a, Sony E, Samsung, Canon M mounts.

Why is this lens is so interesting?

Samyang makes very good quality optics recently for any systems like Canon, Nikon, Micro Four Thirds, Fujifilm, etc. This is not a completely new lens, this lens exists before just without the AE moniker. The AE means this lens can be used in Aperture priority (electronically it is possible to control aperture) mode currently on Canon cameras. This is a manual focus lens, normally with no electronical connection with the camera body. No exif data, the Canon version has electronically controlled aperture, but no info about exif data.

-f/1.4 bright aperture

There are many alternatives but significantly higher price with autofocus and Full functionality. Canon, Nikon, Sigma 35mm lenses with f/1.4 or f/2 aperture, perhaps the other manufacturers like Pentax and Sony has similar lenses. I have checked the earlier version which is very sharp stopped down, but the contrast is reduced wide open and around apertures.
