Rumored: Samyang 45/1.8 FE
#1
Tongue 
When Samyang teased the latest bunch of lenses, one of them was a small thingy, apparently a native mirrorless one. The rumor site alumni were apparently hoping that it would be some breed of the E mount's Unicorn lens, a mid aperture 35mm. And now... The veil is off but it's a 45mm lens instead. Smile I can just about hear a loud collective groan. Smile

Well, that particular combination - a 35/2 or thereabouts - still looks elusive for whatever reason. Smile No wonders people think of some conspiracy on the part of Sony. Smile

Still, a 45mm lens makes some sense, so as to be different from the other similar units and especially from the 50/1.8s since this particular combination is considered nothing but the most entry level, bargain bin prime, and pricing such a lens above the cheapest bracket is always met with derision (remember the hostile initial response to the Sony 55?) But the other 45/1.8 lens, from Tamron, got away with much less flak.

Wonder how good this Samyang is really going to be...
