Doesn't look like the stills version at all:

Ok they are making them all the same diameter, probably to fit some external focussing mechanism.

Xeen is aimed at professional videographers. Ever seen a professional videographer using K-mount? Anyway the Cine and the stills version of this lens are made in K-mount.

Nor Fuji's XF and Leica's M & SL, let alone Sony's flattering A.


But i can see that SL-PL adaptors do exist :

I think Samyang will only make AF-lenses for E-mount because that has an open specification. They don't want to muck about like Sigma and I doubt they will get permission from Canon or Nikon to license the protocol. Maybe they could become a member of the m43 alliance though. Four Thirds
I am not sure you can refuse to license. While you may protect your stuff, you can't prevent interoperability.

I agree. Quite lame. The previous one was a bit lame too IMO.

Neither:

First real world images and autofocus test with the new Samyang 50mm FE lens! - sonyalpharumors

(May 4th, 2016)

The Samyang AF 50mm f/1.4 FE was announced in May and released in June; I don't see how it could be part of the 5 lenses to be released ('announced' would be a better translation according to the Korean text 를 선보일 예정 = "will be showcased") on every Monday of the five weeks to come.

You were right and I was wrong. I thought such a recycling of previous announcements was for politicians only...
