Samyang to Announce 35mm Auto-Focus Lens for Canon?

Samyang (also known as Bower or Rokinon or Walimex) has teased about new lenses set to be announced on March 21st on their European Facebook page. It seems that the lens (or lenses) that Samyang is going to announce will have electronic auto-focus built-in. Samyang are known for their excellent manual lenses at very affordable prices.

SLRclub reader Komabea, spotted another bit of information on Samyang’s South Korea Facebook page, where a 35mm auto-focus lens is teased. The picture above says:
  • [Samyang is] studying cine zoom lens. There are no exact launching plan.
  • A Canon mount 35mm auto-focus lens is scheduled to be launched 1st half of 2014.
  • Mirror lens for DSLR is also scheduled to be launched 1st half~2nd half of 2014.
Looks like Samyang is also working on Cine and Mirror Lenses.
