Samyang Availability

According to Amateur Photographer, Samyang has announced a disruption in the supply of lenses, owing to supply chain interruption owing to the tsunami.

I cannot immediately confirm that but it certainly makes sense.

I'm going to assume they get the glass blanks from Japan, possible even Hoya who has indicated disruptions.

Just wait until we see disruptions in 11 million cars that can't get engine microprocessors.

Heck even Government Motors (GM) just announced that they are out of red and black paint.

that would be my bet, lens assembly and grinding may be one thing, but the glass making is another all together.
