Samyang enters the premium lens lineup with their 85mm F/1.2 and 14mm F/2.4 lenses. Getting into the Sigma Art and L lens territory these lenses are said to hold up to 50mp Sensor’s and 8k video. While pricing is under the table at the moment both lenses are rumored to be in the $1000 range. Find out Scott’s thoughts in our video hands-on with these lenses at Photokina in the video above. So far the 85mm will only be available in Canon EF mount while the 14mm will be available in Canon EF, Nikon F, or Sony E mounts. With a decent build quality, good specs, and sharp glass Samyang certainly made a step into the high end market.

 The Stars above Vis Harbor. I loved the town of Vis and the island of Vis - lovely quiet little place off the coast of Croatia. See more of it including an animation of this star stacking AND one angry hooded crow that really wanted to take out my drone! http://photorec.tv/croatia Captured with the #GH5 and 12-60 f/2.8-4 Lens | 41 exposures of 60 seconds in length - done in camera - the GH5 allows up to 60 second shutter speeds. Nifty!
 Trailer park girls be like… Part of the Sony set for shooting last week at #SonyKandotrip Thanks to @artbyadelaide for being awesome. Captured with the #Sony #a9 and #2470Gmaster
 Sony has announced two new lenses and I have had early access to both, shooting on an a7RII and a9 and have sample photos and thoughts on the Sony FE 16-35mm f/2.8 GM and Sony FE 12-24mm F4 G Ultra Wide-angle. Watch by clicking on through my profile link or visiting http://photorec.tv/sonywide
