A new image has surfaced showing a new Samyang lens – and some believe that it could be the elusive Samyang 24mm f/1.8 FE lens. Believed to be designed for mirrorless cameras, this piece of glass is rumored to include autofocus and a wide maximum aperture of f/1.8.

While the lens in this leaked photo doesn't have any markings or numbers to help us identify which specific piece of glass it will be, the latest rumors from Sony Alpha Rumors potentially point to it being a 24mm f/1.8.
