The two MF 85mm F1.4 and MF 14mm F2.8 full size primes announced in March for Canon RF have now been announced by Samyang for the new Nikon Z-Mount. The optical construction seems largely the same -- the 85mm with maximum F1.4 luminous intensity consists of 9 lenses (one of them hybrid aspheric / H-ASP) in 7 groups, the aperture of 8 lamellas. The closest focusing distance is 1 meter. The lens weighs 740 g and measures 10.2 cm.
Also with the Samyang MF 14mm F2.8 Z the data are practically the same compared to the Canon RF version (14 lenses in 10 groups including 1x ASP, 1x H-ASP, 3x HR and 2x ED, close-up limit 28cm), the small deviation in weight and length -- 810 g to 12.4 cm -- is probably due to the changed mount. Because of the strong curvature of the front lens there is no filter thread, but there is a holder for foil filters on the mount.
The lenses are operated fully manually, there is no data exchange with the camera. They should be available from June, a little later than the RF versions, a price quotation is still pending.
A third lens was also announced, the Samyang AF 85mm F1.4 F for the Nikon F-Mount. This again offers an autofocus, weighs 480g with a length of 7.5cm. The price is 699 Euro, available from mid-May.
