Apologies, I'm a little late with this one! Samyang, which is also known as Rokinon in the US has announced their latest lens, and this time its the AF 12mm F2 E lens for Sony APS-C cameras like the Sony a6400.

The lens is already available to pre-order for $399 in the US and £359.00 in the UK. First shipping is expected in June 2021.

Full details and early reviews in the blog post:

Cheaper and faster than the Sony 10-18mm.
Smaller, cheaper, faster than the newly announced Tamron 11-20mm.
Lighter than the Sigma 16 (a very popular choice for Sony APSC owners).

This lens will sell well for APSC users who want to shoot wide landscapes, astrophotography, and will balance nicely on a small gimbal for users who may want to vlog with it too. I think I just talked myself into buying this lens...
