Illustration for article titled An affordable NEW 50mm f1.2!

In a move that came from absolutely nowhere, Samyang announced their most expensive normal lens ever, the 50mm f/1.2 for Mirrorless Aps-c and Micro 4/3s! While the price is higher, it is justified with another “first” for Samyang, A metal barrel! That’s right, no more plastic fantastic, the entire construction of this lens is aluminum alloy! Though, as with all Samyang lenses, this all come with the caveat that you are ok with manually focusing as that is the only kind of focusing available. Though I did say it was Samyang’s most expensive normal lens ever, it only costs $550, which for a modern f/1.2 50mm is pretty dang cheap! Here’s to hoping for a full frame E mount version!
