Anyone waiting for the 10mm Samyang?

Anyone waiting for the 10mm Samyang?

Not much info, Samyang UK don't know when it will arrive either.

I'm wondering whether to wait for it or get something else.

Yeah, the press release said it was going to be out for Christmas - still not here.

I love my Samyang 8mm, and a faster rectilinear version would be amazing. Oh well, hopefully it'll be out by my birthday.

Yup. With that fact before us, I'd recommend the Sigma 8-16 which B&H lists for $649. If that's too rich (and it will be for many), I'd go with the older, original Sigma 10-20 f/4-5.6 for $429. A second, and newer, Sigma 10-20 offers an f/3.5 constant aperture and costs $599. Both are still available new. The Sigma 10-20 has legions of happy fans and offers auto focus, which the Samyang won't. The Sigmas don't look like they're much larger than the Samyang, either. Of course, the Samyang will offer f/2.8. But you'll have to wait for it.

Interesting - do you have a source for that? Samyang's Korean site doesn't have a spot for news, and their UK site just mentions "end of 2012" http://www.samyang-lens.co.uk/news.html

i saw it on their FB page, it was during Sandy episode, they also said the 24mm TS was delayed to march 2013. my guess is that the prototype was not as good as hoped so they reworked it.

The Russian Samyang site that @ogl linked to from another thread gave April 2013 for the 24 TS.
It's strange how the different Samyang pages vary, although maybe not as much as the different Pentax pages.
