ZY Optics announces Mitakon 50mm f/0.95 lens for Leica M mount

By on

ZY Optics announces Mitakon 50mm f/0.95 lens for Leica M with improved optics. Unlike the Canon RF, Nikon Z and Sony E mount versions of the lens, the Leica M mount version is constructed of 11 elements in 8 groups, including multiple extra-low dispersion elements. Additionally, the Leica version of the Mitakon Speedmaster 50mm F0.95 lens features a rangefinder coupling system for focus assistance.

The ZY Optics Mitakon 50mm f/0.95 M-mount lens weighs 1.38 lb. (675g). The lens is 3.46″ (88mm) long and has a maximum diameter of 2.95″ (75mm). The lens has a 75mm filter thread.  Other features include a nine-blade aperture diaphragm, an aperture range of F0.95 through F16 and a 100cm (3.25ft) minimum focusing distance.

Mitakon Zhongyi Speedmaster 50mm f/0.95 lens price in the US is $799. The lens is available in black and silver.

The manual focus lens can be converted into an AF lens when used on Nikon Z and Sony E camera users. With third-party adapters, M-mount manual lenses, including this new ZY Optics one, can be turned into AF lenses. ZY Optics specifically mentions the Megadap MTZ11 and Techart TZM-01/LM-EA7 adapters. With these adapters, the Mitakon 50mm f/0.95 M mount lens can be used with AF-S, AF-C, AF-F, Face/Eye-detect AF, and IBIS systems.
