Samyang pledges X-Mount support

When it comes to third party support, the Fujifilm X-Mount has been sadly ignored by many manufacturers. But Samyang (also sometimes known as Bower or Rokinon, depending where you're buying from) seems to be stepping up to the plate, and will be adding X-Mount support to more lenses.

On a Facebook post, a user asked about future X-Mount releases, and Samyang Asia responded "Yes. All the existing lenses with have X Mount in future" and that a timetable "Will be available soon."

Currently Samyang makes an 8mm, 16mm, 24mm, and a 300mm mirror lens that come in X-Mount versions. Hopefully this announcement means Fujifilm compatibility will be coming to the rest of their lineup in the very near future, and that Fujifilm shooters will have that many new options to choose from.
