Update on the two Samyang XP lenses pulled out by Swedish distributor due to design similarity with Zeiss lenses

The Swedish website Monitor has some additional information on the removal of two Samyang lenses by the distributor (XP 50mm f/1.2 and XP 85mm f/1.2) due to design similarity with Zeiss lenses (Google translation):

"This in connection with a conflict between the South Korean manufacturer and the competitor Zeiss, which accuses Samyang of design infringement.

Specifically, the 50 mm and 85 mm lens Samyang Premium XP 50 mm F / 1.2 and Samyang Premium XP 85 mm F / 1.2 touches the stop. As a result, Samyang's lens has begun to be called back by the manufacturer from distributors and retailers all over the world, including the Swedish Zeiss and Samyang distributor Focus Nordic."
