Small surprise: New Rokinon with MFT mount launched and in Stock!

Share

Samyang/Rokinon quietly introduced two new MFT mount version of some of their lenses. They are already available at BHphoto:

Rokinon 85mm f/1.4 AS IF UMC (Click here to see it at BHphoto).
Rokinon 14mm f/2.8 ED AS IF UMC (Click here to see it at BHphoto).

These are lenses designed for Full Frame DSLR cameras. The only thing that they did change is the mount. That’s why the lenses are big. But what the heck, $299 for a very good quality 85mm f/1.4 lens is a no brainer if you don’t care about the size!

(FT5) Small bad news for European readers: Olympus 25mm f/1.8 and new pancake zoom to cost 399 Euro!

Share

Last week we learned the price of the new Olympus 25mm f/1.8 lens and the new pancake zoom would be 35,000 yen in Japan. By using the current currency conversion the price would be 250€. Well the last two days I got confirmations from one trusted and one new source that Olympus will price the lens much higher than that! It will cost 399 Euro!

These are the prices:
Olympus 25 f/1.8 will cost 399€
Olympus 14-42 will cost 399€
Fisheye lenscap will cost 99€

Once again EU citizen have to pay more than US or Asian countries on camera and lenses!

For me this means I will wait for a refurbished deal at Olympusmarket to try to get them for a lower price :(
