The Samyang 10mm f/2.8 (rectilinear APS-C ultrawide angle lens) was announced a while ago so there isn't much to tease about it on March 21st.

The way I understand it, nothing new will be announced on March 21st, but the 10mm F2.8 will be available on March 21st.

edit: because I could neither find a shipping date other than "Mid March", nor could I find any other rumors...

The 10mm was just officially announced according to B&H. I guess they must have jumped the gun earlier, but now it's there:

That as well, but Adam is correct.

The 10/2.8 has just shown up on the Samyang mother site:

Samyang Optics, Lenses for Camera ? Cine ? Photo - VDSLR, Prime Lenses & Third party Lenses

I guess it must be spring in the northern hemisphere!

Indeed but it's a re-announcement: the Samyang 10 mm f/2.8 ED AS NCS CS, a prototype of which was shown at Photokina in September 2012, was already announced on December 6th, 2013:

That "announcement" was always a little bizarre.
For example, the text says 10 groups in the optical design,
while the diagram shows 9, the figure quoted in the Samyang video.

Samyang's media control doesn't seem much better than Malaysia Airlines'!

That lens looks nice - good specs and so much lighter than the (announced) 10mm, or the 14mm F/2.8. Too bad it's not in Pentax mount. It obviously covers the APS-C image circle, given that it will be available for Fuji X and Canon M, but I guess maybe it is designed for a very short flange distance? Bummer...

We can't expect Ricoh to cover all the bases for us,
but an XS version of that 12/2 for the likes of the K-01
would be really sweet.
