Samyang 7.5mmSamyang was today unable to confirm when it expects to debut a new 7.5mm f/3.5 lens, a prototype of which went on show at Focus on Imaging in Birmingham.

?So far it?s just a prototype and we have no further information on when production begins,? a spokesman told Amateur Photographer.

The Samyang 7.5mm 1:3.5 UMC Fisheye MFT is billed as an ultra-wide angle manual lens delivering a 180 degree angle of view.

In a statement, the Korean manufacturer said the lens is the ?first model in a new series of lenses designed especially for compact system cameras featuring replaceable optics?.

The newcomer will combine the best features of the firm’s current 8mm lens in a ?compact and visually stunning casing?, according to Samyang.
