ZY Optics Announces Mitakon Speedmaster 50mm f/0.95 Mark III Lens

By on

ZY Optics announced the Mitakon Speedmaster 50mm f/0.95 Mark III lens. Full frame compatible lens will be available for Sony FE, Canon R and Nikon Z mount mirrorless cameras.

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. It also affords a great degree of control over depth-of-field for isolating subjects from the background and producing selective focus effects.

The new version III features a new optics design which offers a slightly more compact size and a better flare resistance. A carefully-designed 10 elements in 7 groups optics system with 1pc of HRI (High Refractive Index) & 5pcs of UD (Ultra-low dispersion) elements successfully minimizes the chromatic aberrations and delivers exceptional image quality.

The US price is $799, you can check the availability at B&HAdorama.
