I received a Facebook notice this morning that one of the brands I was following – Samyang Optics – had changed its name to "Next77 Global."
 
I'm not quite sure what's behind the name change, but I'll keep an eye out for any press releases on the matter.

Not long ago, the Samsung UK website was one of the better sources for obtaining information regarding Samyang Lenses. Why? As the Samyang UK site was authored by English-speaking natives, it was much easier to read (the press releases were translated very well) compared to some of the other international Samyang sites.
 
Over the past year or so, the main Samyang Optics site has gotten much better for English-speaking individuals and has been redesigned with a great look. The main site has gotten so good, in fact, that it looks as if Samyang decided to go a different direction with their UK-oriented site.
 
Just think, if Samyang had made this change around April 1, no one would have thought I was being serious in reporting this change. But truthfully, I'm just not creative enough to have come up with this.
 
Ramen, anyone?

From Samyang:
 
Samyang Europe announces the upcoming Autumn release of the full-frame Samyang 12mm f/2.8 ED AS NCS Fisheye lens. The lens will be officially introduced during Photokina in Cologne on September 16th 2014.
 
Samyang 12mm f/2.8 ED AS NCS Fisheye is a bright, super wide-angle fisheye lens designed especially for full-frame cameras. It offers the image area in 24 x 36mm format and the diagonal angle of view of 180 degrees. In terms of the optics, it is one of the most advanced "fisheye” lenses. The product's sophisticated optics consists of 12 lens elements arranged in 8 groups. This includes three elements made of low dispersion ED glass and two aspherical lens elements to ensure perfect image depth and minimized chromatic aberration. Samyang 12mm f/2.8 ED AS NCS Fisheye is the third lens of the brand (along with 10mm f/2.8 and 12mm f/2.0) with highly effective nanocrystal anti-reflection NCS coating applied together with standard UMC coatings. Because of these advanced coatings and its fast aperture (f/2.8) the lens can be used as a perfect tool in diverse lighting conditions, as it provides great focus, high contrast and natural color reproduction even when used wide open. The premiere of Samyang 12mm f/2.8 ED AS NCS Fisheye is like a dream coming true for professional photographers and filmmakers who seem to have an increasing demand for this type of lenses since the release of 8mm and 7.5mm models, which are considered to be the best "fisheye" lenses on the market.
 
You will have an opportunity to take a look at the pre-production copy of the new lens on the Samyang stand (hall 2.1, A-025) during the upcoming Photokina 2014 in Cologne. The visitors will be also able to test two other recently introduced lenses: Samyang 50mm f/1.4 AS UMC and Samyang V-DSLR 50mm T1.5 AS UMC.
 
The market release date for the new lens and its retail price will be announced at a later date.

From Samyang (translated):
 
The Samyang 50 mm T1.5 AS UMC has been designed for cameras with full-frame sensors or smaller. The lens offers a field of view of 46.2 degree, and due to the wide T1.5 (f / 1.4) aperture, it allows users to shoot in low light while providing excellent image quality and a shallow depth of field. The optical lens design consists of nine lenses arranged in six groups (including one aspherical and one hybrid aspherical). To ensure high contrast and faithful color reproduction, lenses are covered with anti-reflex multilayer coatings UMC.
 
Strengths
The Samyang 50 mm T1.5 features a beautifully smooth bokeh. With an eight-bladed aperture, objects outside the depth of field are extremely soft, which professional filmmakers and photographers specializing in portrait photography will especially appreciate.
 
The new Samyang 50 mm T1.5 AS UMC Cine Lens will be first unveiled at Photokina 2014. Samyang cordially invites you to visit its booth No. A-025 in hall 2.1 at the fair in Cologne on 16 - 21.09.2014.

The new new 35mm f/1.4 Canon EF mount version will feature AE (Auto Exposure), which has so far been exclusively reserved for lenses with the Nikon F bayonet lens mount. The optical construction of the lens has not changed with excellent image quality and mechanical operation. The Samyang 35mm f/1.4 is designed for use with Canon digital SLR cameras, compatible with full frame and APS-C sensor cameras.
 
Samyang will also offer a lightweight and compact lens 300mm f/6.3 Mirror UMC CS in DSLR mounts Canon EF, Nikon F, Sony A and Micro 4/3. The optical construction has 8 elements in 8 groups. The lenses feature multi-layer coatings (UMC) to minimize glare and increase contrast. A large focal length, exceptionally affordable price and small footprint (lens weighs only 260g) means this lens will become a constant companion for SLR users "in the field".

Samyang 300mm f/ 6.3 Mirror UMC CS Lens

The Samyang 10mm T3.1 12mm T2.2 Cine and Cine will also be available soon. Samyang VDSLR lenses have aperture and focus rings designed to work with Follow Focus systems. The deeply ribbed rings allow whisper-quiet and smooth changes of these parameters during filming.

Samyang 10mm T3.1 Cine Lens

The Samyang 10mm T3.1 and 12mm T2.2 Cine lenses feature a nanocrystalline anti-reflective coating (NCS) which provides better light transmission, greater resistance to glare and higher contrast, producing excellent image quality.
 
Samyang 12 mm version of the photo and film lens, designed for APS-C sensor cameras, fills the need for a wide-angle lens paired with a wide aperture. The lens is designed for cameras equipped with high-resolution sensors (over 24MP). Samyang Optics has earned a reputation of providing excellent quality lenses at an affordable price. The latest set of lenses live up to Samyang's storied reputation. The 10mm and 12 mm, which in terms of mechanical construction and optical capabilities, can successfully compete with the best wide-angle lenses available on the market today.

Samyang 12mm T2.2 Cine Lens

The product range is further complemented by the Samyang 7.5mm Fish-eye T3.8 Cine lens. This is a film version of the precisely designed fisheye lens, giving a diagonal field of view equal to 180 degrees.
