Samyang stays a South Korea lens manufacturer (and they have a catalog of both excellent quality and low-cost). But the March-11 tsunami hit hard one of their suppliers of special glass lens.
Consequently, Samyang has been forced to announce some delays and difficulties to supply their products in the coming months. The list of impacted lenses has not been detailed but it contains many items including the recent
- 7.5mm f/3.5 UMC Fisheye MFT
- 35mm f/1.4 AS UMC
Beware: Other non-listed references are involved too.
No word about the economic/financial consequences to the Samyang Optics Co. Ltd company.
