Shenyang, China—Zhongyi Optics (ZY Optics) released the new Mitakon Speedmaster 50mm f/0.95 Mark III lens for full-frame Sony E, Nikon Z and Canon RF mirrorless cameras.
The new lens offers a natural 50mm perspective along with an ultrafast f/0.95 maximum aperture. Moreover, the Mitakon 50mm f/0.95 is a compact prime characterized by its bright f/0.95 aperture for working in low-light conditions. It also affords control over depth of field, isolating subjects from the background to produce selective focus effects.
The new version of the Mitakon Speedmaster also features a new optical design. It now has a slightlymore compact size as well as better flare resistance.
“A carefully designed 10 elements in 7 groups optics system with one HRI (high refractive index) element and five UD (ultra-low dispersion) elements successfully minimizes the chromatic aberrations and delivers exceptional image quality,” the company announced.
In addition, the lens’s 11-blade diaphragm helps to produce a softly diffused out-of-focus rendering (bokeh). Furthermore, the enclosure of the lens is metal to strengthen its durability. Other features also include a 45º angle of view, a 67mm filter thread and a minimum working distance of 1.64 feet. The Mitakon 50mm f/0.95 weighs in at 1.58 pounds.
