 Rokinon is giving mirrorless camera owners a pair of fast new primes to play with. The company announced a 21mm f/1.4 and a 50mm f/1.2 lens for Sony E, Micro Four Thirds, Fuji X and Canon M mount cameras.

The lenses will come in either black or silver and feature a removable hood, non-rotating filter mount, fully damped focus control and nine blade apertures. They are manual focusing lenses with an internal focusing mechanism and Rokinon’s Ultra Multi Coating.

The 21mm lens features a focusing distance of 12 inches and a 58mm filter mount. The 50mm f/1.2 lens also offers a 58mm filter mount and will weigh roughly 13.5 ounces.

The 21mm lens will retail for $499 and is available for pre-order now. The 50mm lens will retail for $549 and is also available for pre-order.
