Samyang releases three new lenses for Nikon F and Nikon Z mount cameras. The new Samyang lenses are the AF 85mm f/1.4 F, MF 14mm f/2.8 Z and the MF 85mm f/1.4 Z.
Following the launch of the AF 14mm f/2.8 F in 2018, the AF 85mm f/1.4 F is Samyang’s second AF lens for Nikon F mount. Along with this DSLR lens, the MF 14mm f/2.8 Z and MF 85mm f/1.4 Z optics are designed for the Nikon Z mount full frame mirrorless cameras.
All three lenses will be unveiled for the first time at the China P&E 2019 in Beijing between 12-15 April. Price and availability will be announced soon.

The Canon version of the same lens is currently priced at $695. The optic offers a 35mm equivalent of 127.5mm for APS-c sensor cameras like D7500 and D500. So we can expect the AF 85mm f/1.4 F lens to have a price around $799 in the US.
All three new Nikon lenses are Ultra-Multi-Coated (UMC), in order to provide excellent image quality and contrast from the centre to edges of the image. In addition, all of the new lenses feature weather sealing.
The Nikkor Z Noct 58mm f/0.95 lens will be announced later in 2019. So what we expect from Nikon when it comes to cameras. Upcoming Nikon cameras are expected both in Nikon DSLR and Mirrorless models. Especially for the DSLR cameras, the announcements will happen once the stock lines becomes clear for the new ones. So, you can expect the announcement of these DSLRs from mid-2019. See Nikon Upcoming Cameras in 2019 for more details.
