As far as I was aware, they are only manufactured by Samyang, in the same way that Zeiss has lenses manufactured by Cosina... I say the 15mm at the show in Birmingham the other day, looks very nice and feels nice in the hand. They had a teaser for the 11mm as well. Certainly looks interesting, and I'm all for variety and choice...

Yes. What I means is the lens are manufactured by Samyang. No idea who design them and where they are designed. However, these are not important. It is the quality of the lens and the price which matters. Wink

The prices are not too bad i guess? I've expecting something over 1000 USD when I first saw the specs.

The rep at the show said they are estimating around £650, but obviously subject to change, which I believe is just a hair under $1000...

Hubert - board member of the Swiss company - runs Foto-Tip in Poland.
I think he is a serious guy. Most probably lenses I will try, as prices are
really competitive.

Samyang makes a 14mm F2.4 too and I think it may be even better.

The 14mm certainly could be one to watch out for, particularly for astro-photography since it's relative fast for such a wide angle - looks like a significant upgrade to the f2.8 version. The lack of filter ring is not a problem at night, but might be for daylight shooters. It will certainly be interesting to see what the coma performance is like. I am looking forward to reading reviews. And for daylight shooters, will the distortion be an improvement (over the f2.8 version).

Isn't Samyang the same as Rokinon? I was about to pull the trigger on the Rokinon 14/2.8 (despite the moustache-distortion problems), but I guess I'll wait to see how this turns out.

Indeed. Rokinons are just rebranded Samyangs.

Visited Irix booth and saw those lenses on the Photokina. They looked good, the metal version very good.
Have to see my testpictures, but I think my EF to E-Mount adapter was abit tilted :-/
