Samyang 135mm f/2 leaked (edit: & Rokinon DS Cine 135mm T2.2 announced)

Since last year Rokinon/Samyang have been hinting about their next lens, it was widely thought to be a 135mm based on that being the only logical conclusion from this teaser on their Facebook page:

And now it has been leaked on eBay, as it is up for sale:


Fun fact: way back in the past, Rokinon made another 135mm lens! These are rather different lenses though (for one, they’re not f/2. Is f/2.8). There are a couple of these vintage lenses available for sale right now on eBay:

Vintage Rokinon 135mm_57

Rokinon Vintage  135mm f28

Edit (January 13th):
As expected, there is a cine version, Rokinon Cine DS 135mm T2.2 which you can pre-order from B&H.

Additionally, there is a comparison test of the Samyang 135mm f/2 (and thus the Rokinon 135mm T2.2 too) vs Canon 135mm f/2L:

f/2 – The Samyang is better all over. Hands down the best performer at f/2.

Looks like it is another fantastic lens from Samyang/Rokinon at an incredible price! (US$599 for the Rokinon Cine DS 135mm T2.2)
