From PocketWizard:
 
Intro: Beta Firmware Version 3.818 addresses compatibility with newer Nikon gear introduced since the launch of ControlTL Firmware version 3.800, and includes some minor improvements.
 
New Key Feature:
 
The following Nikon gear is now supported in this beta firmware release:
 
  • Nikon D5
  • Nikon D500
  • Nikon D7200
  • Nikon D5500
  • Nikon SB-5000 (remote only – see operational consideration)
These cameras will work in the ControlTL system with normal operational considerations. Read more about the general Nikon Operational Considerations on the PocketWizard Wiki.
 
SB-5000 Operational Consideration: The Nikon SB-5000 should only be used as a remote Speedlight on a FlexTT5 (set to TTL, not REMOTE per normal ControlTL operation). We do not recommend using the SB-5000 as a MASTER Speedlight on your camera’s ControlTL radio at this time. It might work as a MASTER on select cameras, but not others. If you use it as MASTER in your setup and it only emits a tiny burst of light at trigger time, it is not compatible. We hope to address this consideration in a future firmware release.
 
D7200/D5500 Operational Consideration: Rear curtain sync mode with these cameras only works with remote flash, not with on camera flash.
 
Other Improvements:
 
  • Nikon FlexTT5 radios can now have Custom IDs installed, regardless of firmware version. Visit this page for more information:
  • As of this date, the latest camera firmware from Nikon has been tested*, including:
    • D5 C:1.10
    • D4S C:1.31
    • D500 C:1.02
    • D7200 C:1.01
    • D5500 C:1.01
    • And others like the Df, D810, D750 etc.
  • Fixed a minor issue regarding the Sekonic RT32-CTL module. You can now use the meter to trigger a remote Speedlight on a FlexTT5 without first having to trigger the remote from a camera.
* Please make sure to update your camera to the latest firmware.
 
To install PocketWizard ControlTL MiniTT1 / FlexTT5 Nikon Beta Firmware v.3.818, you must enable Beta Firmware access.

From Samyang Optics:
 
Samyang 35mm F1.2 ED AS UMC CS is a standard angle manual focus lenses for mirrorless cameras with APS-C sensor size. The flow of light is devised based on the uniqueness of the distance from glass to sensor in mirrorless cameras to create optimal performance.
 
The bright F1.2 aperture secures a fast shutter speed even under the restricted lighting conditions to offer best quality images. It will brighten up your everyday snapshots. Also it creates an outstanding out-of-focus look by highlighting the main object effectively. The versatility of 35mm angle of view is also a charm. It liberates your daily images including landscapes, streets, portraits and even lunch tables and brings the essence and joy of manual focusing to life.
 
Based on Samyang Optics’ exceptional optical technology, Ultra Multi Coating and two aspherical lenses have been included among nine glasses in seven groups to minimise aberration and unnecessary light dispersion, delivering high resolution from the centre to the corners of the image. Along with portability of mirrorless lens, the 62mm of wide filter diameter brings the maximum amount of light into the lens to create the best work of light in photography.
 
Samyang 35mm f 1.2 ED AS UMC CS Lens Specifications

Samyang 35mm F1.2 is compatible with four camera mounts: Sony E, MFT, Fujifilm X and Canon M.
 
Note: Pricing and availability information is currently unavailable.
