One more promising product from Samyang. Looks interesting!

If it has the same IQ as their legendary 14mm FF lens, I might consider dumping my Sigma 10-20 to get this baby.

Yep, saw this, sounds neat

Probubly will be under $500 too knowing Samyang and quite a good little lens for the price...

wonder how much it will vignette on a full frame?

This is going to be great for milky way shots.

Is there a filter size for this lens? I wonder if it's possible to use a Lee rectangular filter on kind of lens.

I was hoping for $300. There are zooms starting at 10mm for $500, with AF and f3.5 apertures.

Better be cheaper or sharper than the Tokina 11-16mm f2.8... At least the Tokina auto-focus...


Canon 6D | S35mm f1.4 | 135mm f2 The rest: T3i, 20D, 15mm f2.8, 15-85mm, 24mm f2.8, 50mm f1.8, 85mm f1.8, 90mm f2.8 macro, 55-250mm.
So long and thanks for all the fish

I wonder why the front element is ginormous? Tokina's 11-16 f2.8 looks much smaller. Perhaps it means stellar quality. It can also mean this was designed for much larger image circle (probably at lower f, like f/3.5), and then they can use it to make the first tilt and shift for crop cameras?

I don't see a filter thread... But I do see a protruding / bulging front element that would limit filters, although it's possible they've included some sort of filter thread in the hood. Eitherway it looks kind of small which is nice but unless this lens is really sharp, flare resistant and free of distortion (unlike the ghastly 14mm's moustache), I don't see many people picking it over the 10-22 or 11-16.
Those two are just great. Perhaps a tad bit more expensive though.

It's going to have to be pretty cheap or AMAZING optically to sell well. I guess if people really think they need f2.8 at 10mm, but there are zooms starting at f4 and f3.5 that are under $400 used. Sigma 10-20mm being an excellent example.

I changed my post a bit, because I brainfarted while typing it.

I agree that this will have to be stellar for people to buy it over the wide variety olf excellent UWA zooms.
If it's anything like the 14mm with distortion, this lens will be useless. Even if you do fix it with an ACR profile, you'd only be left with a 12mm framing. Not that that's a bad thing, but it takes away from the advantage of being a 10mm prime.

Personally, any lack of filters in an UWA would be an immediate no-go for me. In fact, anything that's not 58mm or 77mm filter size is already at a huge disadvantage. I would hesitate to buy it if it also meant I'd have to spend $00 - 250 on a 10 stops ND, optionally 3 stops ND and a CPL.

Curious product...
I have the 10-22 and I have to same the zoom range makes it EXTREMELY useful so much so that I use it as my walkaround lens... I can't imagine walking around (or even 10% of the time) using this lens. It is quite a specialty lens which will significantly reduce its targeted audience.
The lack of AF, however, is completely inconsequential for this FL.
Either way, kudos to Samyang for releasing cool products.


Think new Canon lenses are overpriced? Lots (and lots) of data will set you free!

I think they posted on their FB page that this lens has been delayed until the end of the year. Bummer...
