Samyang has plans for this lens in 2014. This will have my attention to be sure.

I'm happy that Samyang and Sigma have stepped up their game and release quality alternative than those offered by the major manufacturers.

I would be more interessted in the Helios 50/1.2 lens they showed me on Phtokina fair 2012. I suppose a much better build quality than a Samyang lens.

I think the built quality of their 35/1.4 is rather nice, much better than the 85/1.4.

I saw such a prototype lens on the Photokina in the cabinet. I asked to see it, and got a closer look on it.
From what I find it seems I was (nearly) the only one who was interested in that lens.
Need to upload the few images I made.

Sorry, Zenitar 50mm f/1.2 is its name.
Here I made a small site with my test images of this prototype.

On Photokina 2012 they were not sure, whether they will start production.

Any idea what design this would be based on?
Biotar?

Sorry, I thought there would be some blogger or print media writer to cover this lens with all technical detail, so I didnīt even ask for more information like design type or lens elements / groups.

I loved this lens because of its classic design too, but as far as I remember they told me it would be changed to more modern in case they start production :-/

Bummer, not everyone is wanting modern.
I'm still wanting the old version of the Helios 40 just for it's character.
They are still high priced.
I thought the re-introduced new versions of the 40-2 would have driven down the prices, but they have not.

Hmmm, never heard about that Zenitar, wish there was more info.
I'm still waiting for the new Helios to be sold at a closer to the store price.

Yes, I love these old fashioned lens barrels without plastic much more than for example these Samyang lenses with all the plastic. I have enough black lenses, lenses with rubber focus rings and such.

Itīs a prototype, I suppose they are unsure if they should produce it or not.
Likely because of this it was in the cabinet and not in a more prominent place.
Cause I work as optics expert at a machine vision camera manufacturer I looked closely at their cabinet, cause probably I could find something interesting for my job too.
And there was this very fast looking lens...
