    Samyang to produce Sony E-mount AF lenses | News | TechRadar

    It seems that Samyang is going to produce more lenses for m43 and perhaps some with AF. They have already announced they are going to make AF lenses for the NEX. Even if the new m43 lenses only have manual focus they will be very good and very affordable.

    I hope they dont just "adapt" their NEX lenses to m43 like what sigma did on the 30mm f2.8. That lens is unnecessarily big for such a relatively slow lens.

    I would be happy if they just bring some fast MF lenses. AF will increase the cost and add another failure point.

    Just tell me they will be for m43 not just an after thought like sigma. Ooh I really need a 19 mm cause the extra 2mm make such a difference...get real sigma. If its not made for m43 in design, then why would I want it! Cheap doesn't mean it's needed or wanted, samyang has put out the fisheye and it seems to fill a gap in price without giving up on quality so hopefully they'll carry on with this attitude.
