Interview: Steve Schneider

PTC recently had a chance to sit down with V.P. of Samyang Optics Steve Schneider.  We wanted to discuss the rumored 35mm f1.4.  Find out what Steve said after the jump ( I stole that from the strobist guy btw).

PTC: First and foremost thanks for the opportunity Steve.

Steve:  My pleasure.

PTC: We understand you play a large roll in new lens development at Samyang.

Steve:  That’s right.  I pretty much run the show.

PTC: Samyang seems to have a full line of interchangeable lenses from ultra wide to super telephoto, whats next?

Steve:  There’s been a lot of talk about a bright fixed focal for 2010.

PTC: That’s what we heard.  Sounds like a great idea.  Can you tell us more?

Steve: No I really can’t.  Sorry.

PTC: Is it a 35mm f/1.4

Steve: (Laughing) Sorry, I really can’t.

PTC: It’s cool.  Thanks for your time.  We know it’s valuable.

Steve: No problem.  Thanks.

Edit: We courted Steve for two weeks before he agreed to the interview.  The interview was conducted by phone while Steve was in his Santa Fe Springs office.
