"With its 15mm-equivalent, 110 degree angle of view, it will be the widest-angle rectilinear prime lens for APS-C/DX format SLRs. As usual for Samyang, focusing will be manual only. The lens is expected to go on sale towards the end of 2012."

16mm equivalent for Canon APS-C. And a reasonably fast aperture 23mm equivalent on the BMCC sensor! Wonder if they'll make a ciné version next year? Will be interesting to hear from the Tokina 11-16mm f/2.8 enthusiasts.

I'm beginning to understand why some of you have so many lenses; gets to be addictive!

This is good news... I love their 8mm fisheye, and a rectilinear lens this wide will come in very handy with the BMC.

This is FANTASTIC! I knew they'd come to the rescue! :D Would definitely be great if they made a Cine version. My main reason for wanting it over the Tokina, besides it being a bit wider, would be that the Samyang's are designed for video manual focusing. I believe the Tokina is still designed for still photography focusing, which can be more difficult for pulling focus.

They're on fire lately. The 35mm T1.5 is a gem.

I'm not sure I've ever seen a company as responsive to Customer requests as Samyang/Rokinon. This is great news.

Hoping pricing is in line with the rest of their line-up, and have a cinema version from day one. Great for those that want a full manual set for the EF version.

Awesome news especially for the MFT guys like me. All I need is manual lenses.
Hope itwon't be too expensive....

As for availability end of 2012 is pretty far away. Or not, if we haven't gotten the damn camera by then...

End of 2012 is only 3 months away, hardley for ever.
