The optical formula is quite different from the MF version. As they did a new design, it's odd that they choose a direct competition with Sony.

Why again another company doing the same exact lenses? Where's the f1.8 or f2?

Yes, a 35/2 would make much more sense IMHO. Or a compact and affordable 135/2.8.
I suspect that nobody from Samyang ever reads this forum..

My only questions, how is this lens optically and AF-wise?

A bit more info from Mirrorlessrumors.

A USB dock for updating the firmware is also announced.

On top of this they say, that Samyang may announce a 135mm for FE in November/December. So there may be a Samyanf AF 135mm for Sony FE to compete with Sony, Sigma and Zeiss. If I recall correctly the Samyang MF 135/2 is highly regarded, so maybe, maybe we have an affordable, native and great AF 135mm FE to look forward to!

The 135mm FE is a very good move as long as it matches its SLR version optically.

I'd rather have a slower Samyang 135/2.4 to keep price and size down, but a $700 135/2 wouldn't be half bad. .
For one thing, 135mm. isn't a focal length that can take much advantage of a short registry distance. Maybe I'm wrong, but I have yet to see a 135mm.lens with rear elements so close to the focal plane that they won't clear a SLR mirror, so the optics of their 135/2 MF might be already adequate, unless this design is unsuitable for on sensor PDAF

If you follow their strategy, it will probably be a Sammy 135/2.8!

For me the 135mm is not a heavily used focal length. Dropping nearly $2,000 US on it just cannot be justified, especially when the speed is only 2.8. Now an f2 at say $700 would have my ears perked up. Id be tempted to sell my 135L to get a native mount.

The rear element of the Zeiss Batis does not seem to clear the mirror of a DSLR, based on the drawing in the PDF datasheet. It's also the first 135mm specifically designed for Sony mirrorless.

Could this lens be a great alternative to the Zony 35/1.4 ZA for half the price?

I've seen quite a few samples on Facebook and they look nice. The people with test copies say Eye-AF works well. Sharpness and falloff look nice.

Used copies of the Sony can be had for decent prices now, so I guess one just has to weigh their own pros/cons on which would work better for them.
