First look: Samyang AF 50/1.4 FE for Sony E-Mount

If you're no stranger to photography, then you have more than likely heard of Korean lens manufacturer Samyang (branded Rokinon in other parts of the world).  For years Samyang has made affordable, manual focus only lenses for pretty much every modern camera mount out there.
