Mitakon Speedmaster 50mm f/0.95 III Unveiled for Full-Frame Mirrorless

Comment

The Chinese lens maker Zhongyi Optics (ZY Optics) has unveiled the new Mitakon Speedmaster 50mm f/0.95 III for Sony E, Nikon Z, and Canon RF full-frame mirrorless cameras.

Compared to the version II model of the lens, the version III model features a new optical design that provides both a smaller size and greater resistance to flares.

“Offering a natural 50mm perspective along with an ultra-fast f/0.95 maximum aperture, the Mitakon 50mm f/0.95 is a compact prime characterized by its bright f/0.95 aperture to suit working in low-light conditions,” ZY Optics states. “It also affords a great degree of control over depth-of-field for isolating subjects from the background and producing selective focus effects.”

Features and specs of the manual-focus lens include 10 elements in 7 groups, an 11-blade aperture, a stepless silent aperture, depth-of-field and distance scales, a minimum focusing distance of 1.6 feet (0.49m), and a durable metal body.

Here are some sample photos captured with the lens:
