    Have to admit, Samyang made their 135mm lens in almost every mount. They are really serious about the release of this lens.

      …and rightly so. I’m tempted to get one even though I have my beloved 135mm f/2 Ai Nikkor. The new Samyang is lightyears ahead of the Nikon and Canon counterparts. If that lens had AF they wouldn’t be able to keep up with demand.

      Would be FF Pentax users get something modern to actually put on their cameras as well.

    Otus lens $900 off! This is the proof of Zeiss being unable to compete with Sigma.

    • Global

      Or at least some Retailer wants to dump his stock with minimum margin.

      There’s only 1 available, and it was a store demo. If Zeiss was trying to compete with Sigma, they wouldn’t use brass mounts.

  • Spy Black

    I wonder how cinematographers will take to the Tokina. Tokina seems to be taking large bets of late.

    • If its based on the 50-135 zoom that they discontinued it should be a spectacular performer.

    Oh no, Fujifilm has no plans to go full-frame! Just like Nikon six months before the D3, and Sony just before the A900… Okay, maybe wishful thinking on my part, but I just can’t take such announcements seriously. No maker wants to put their customers into wait-and-see mode.

      Ah the joys of marketing: either Fuji is working on full frame, and does not want to undercut their sails prior to release, or they’re being honest. who can tell? [well Fuji can, but not us] :p
