Shenyang, China—ZY Optics unveiled the Zhongyi Mitakon Speedmaster 85mm f/1.2, an ultrafast portrait lens with a maximum aperture of f/1.2 for shooting without flash in low-light conditions.
Designed for use with full-frame cameras, the large aperture also provides fine control over depth of field for portrait photography. The circular aperture creates a shallow depth of field that establishes a sharp contrast on the subject and background.
The lens incorporates 9 elements in 6 groups with two extra-low dispersion elements and four high-refractive index elements, to help in reducing aberrations and maintaining sharpness even at the maximum f/1.2.
Its manual focus design and click-less, silent aperture ring promote smooth handling and are well suited to video applications. The lens is built in a metallic enclosure with an additional protective process.
The Mitakon Speedmaster 85mm f/1.2 is available for Canon EF-, Nikon F- and Sony FE-mount cameras. $799. zyoptics.net
