[Update]: This lens has now been officially announced. Here is the photography version, and the cine version (here it is from Samyang to pre-order, and from Rokinon):

Samyang 135mm f/2 Photo Lens

Samyang 135mm T2.2 Photo Lens

While a few months ago they finally added a 50mm T1.5 lens, they haven't really had much in the way of long lenses. That's about to change however, as images leaked on eBay of a lens that should be fully announced sometime in the next month has been announced. (Thanks to Vitaly and Sony Alpha Rumors for the original leak). Here are the specs:

  • 1:2.0 or T2.2 135mm ED UMC
  • Aperture Range: F/2.0 or T2.2 ~ 22
  • Mounts: Nikon F, Canon EF, Pentax K, Sony Alpha, Canon M, Fujifilm X, Samsung NX, Sony E, Four Thirds, Micro Four-Thirds
  • Optical Construction: 11 Elements in 7 Groups
  • Min Focusing Distance: 0.8m (2.62ft)
  • Filter Size: 77mm
  • Max Diameter: 82mm
  • Full-frame coverage
  • Angle of View: 18.8° / 11.7°
  • Length: 122.1mm
  • Weight: 830g
  • Price: $550 for Photo, $600 for Cine

We are presuming this is accurate information, but it's certainly possible some of it could be different when it's actually announced. We do know a lens like this was coming, as we had teasers from both Samyang and Rokinon:



The cine version will be slightly more expensive, but the set is far more complete now with this 135mm lens coming soon. As far as cine lenses covering full-frame, they will now have the 14mm T3.1, 24mm T1.5, 35mm T1.5, 50mm T1.5, 85mm T1.5, and now the 135mm, which will probably be around a T2.2 (maybe slightly slower). For APS-C, they've got the 8mm T3.8, 10mm T3.1, 12mm T3.1, and 16mm T2.2. It's also worth noting that Rokinon has a slightly higher-end version of these lenses called Cine DS, which have uniform iris and focus gears, scales on both sides, and color matching to a higher degree.
