New Lens Instant Savings II: Pentax, Sigma, Rokinon, Samyang, Olympus

The previous Lens Instant Savings post got crowded, so now we have a Part II with some of the other lens manufacturers!

+ Pentax K-Lenses: 42 options including 24-70/2.8 SDM for $1100, 70-200/2.8 AW for $1600, 100/2.8 WR Macro for $500, etc

+ Sigma Lenses (various systems): 96 options including 17-50/2.8 DC OS HSM for $369, 105/2.8 HSM Macro for $569 and many more

+ Olympus M43 lenses: 15 options including 30/3.5 Macro for $199

+ Samyang Lenses (various systems): 49 options with a mix of photography-priority and video-priority lenses

+ Rokinon Lenses (various systems): 92 options with a mix of photography-priority and video-priority lenses including Sony E-system autofocus lenses
+ CORRECTED: an “option swith” is “options with” with the “s” at the wrong place 🙂

More on these later on, as, unfortunately, I am not IBM’s Watson and I cannot “digest” hundreds of lenses (over 500 of them in these two posts) on the fly. Not to mention that glass causes indigestion. Mayhaps I’ll start with the plastic lenses first 🙂

In-Stock Now: Samyang 35mm f2.8 AutoFocus (Sony E)

If you like auto focusing technology and Samyang/Rokinon lenses, and you are part of the Sony E System, the Samyang 35mm f2.8 AutoFocus lens is now in-stock and shipping for $399 at B&H Photo and Adorama and by Adorama on Amazon.

Or if you prefer the Rokinon brand, the Rokinon flavor is also in-stock for the same price including Amazon itself and Adorama and B&H Photo.

Samyang Cine SYCV24M-N 24mm T1.5 (Nikon) for $439

While the Sony Alpha version is a lightning deal, the Nikon version is on sale but not a lightning deal.

The Samyang 24mm f1.4 manual focus lens for the Pentax K-mount is currently going for $370 with free shipping, with a limit of two per customer at Amazon by Amazon itself.

When price checking all the different mounts, be sure to pay attention to who the actual seller is. For some of them (eg Sony Alpha) the featured seller is not Amazon itself.
