Samyang says: “All our existing lenses will have X-mount in future”

Now, time for a rumor update to what belongs Samyang’s X-mount lens lineup.

In late August photorumors said that there would be a Samyang 12mm f/2.0 lens for Fuji X-mount. I checked Samyang’s website and there was another lens listed, the 10mm f/2.8. Anyway, photorumors confirmed: the Samyang 12mm will come too. That’s good to know.

But what is the situation now? The 10mm f/2.8 disappeared from the Samyang lens lineup (as you can see from the screenshot here, it was still up in late August).

But here is the good news: According to a facebook comment of Samyang Asia all the existing lenses will have X Mount in future! At Trenton’s question if there is any release roadmap for the X-mount lenses, Samyang answered: “Will be available soon!”

At the moment, the X-mount lenses of Samyang are:

Samyang 8mm: [shopcountry 12946] Samyang 300mm mirror lens: [shopcountry 14844] Samyang 16mm f/2.0: [shopcountry 15934] Samyang 24mm f/3.5 Tilt Shift: [shopcountry 15963]

To see the whole interchangeable lens lineup of Samyang visit their website here. Check it out and tell us which of the existing “non X-mount” Samyang lenses you’d consider to pruchase once it gets the X-mount!

thanks Trenton!
