Is this the new Samyang 24mm f/3.5 tilt-shift lens?

After Samyang confirmed on Facebook their plans for a 24mm tilt-shift lens, I received this image from megapiksel. The aperture range is f/3.5-32. No other information is available at that point.

    Weird that aperture scale below what is supposed to be the focusing ring. And where is the aperture ring? I am eagery wautung to see what they will do with such a lens and the price point. I need one, and the Nikons are way to expensive!
    Samyang beware: we want no distortion first and above all!! this is a lens for shooting architecture (among other things) and i don’t want to lose field of view by cropping after SW distortion correction.!!!!!!

    • Software distortion correction is not straightforward to do on a tilt-shift lens as it is with ordinary lenses. If you’re shooting a series of shots with different amounts of shift, correcting distortion in them would be a major pain. Add tilt and the difficulty approaches “impossible”.

      But let’s hope they do this… the big budgeted bad boys of SLR lens making are slacking off and screwing customers over in comparison to what Samyang has been achieving lately.

  • Hi,

    I photoshopped this image for the of photography magazine DIGIFOTO Pro:

    It’s indeed a combination of a Samyang 14mm and a Nikon 24mm PC-E. On our website, we state that it is an impression of how a tilt/shift lens from Samyang could look.

      hopefully it would not look like this, otherwise there would be no filter thread which would render the lens nearly useless architecture and landscape works

      • Canon’s TS-E 17mm doesn’thave filter thread as well, and the good ol’ Pentax 28mm f/3.5 shift has some kind of half filter thread. I’ve got a tilt/shift myself and seldomly use filters. Polarising filters give an extreme vignette, only ND-filters can be of some use. But nearly useless… not at all.

          maybe i was exaggerating, but still it would be a dissapointment to not see a filterthread on a lens like this.
