Yes, the fate of Pentax rests with Samyang.

"Focus Numérique", a french photog website, has just leaked the first lens in that new serie :

Samyang AF 50mm f/1.4 AS IF UMC


Sony Planar 50mm f/1.4 : premières photos et beau duel en perspective - Focus Numérique

and its definitely NOT for SLR, but for Sony FE mount.

That was my initial question, BUT you would need to extend that tube...

I'm afraid Focus Numérique haven't leaked anything. This is another lens, which was announced by Samyang back in May, together with their AF 14 mm f/2,8 FE, and officially launched on the Korean market (to begin with) on June 8th:

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

Nope. The "tube" is full of glass.

Yeah and the hood too. That is not a 50 1.4 it's a wide angle. This is the 50 1.4:

Somewhere I read that Samyang was going auto focus. Maybe these are those lenses.

Indeed, my mistake. My comment remains valid though.

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

This is interesting... Is Pentax's specifications open too, or they are closed as Nikon and Canon?
