Mitakon Officially Announces Speedmaster 50mm f/0.95 Mark III FE lens


Mitakon officially announced their updated Speedmaster 50mm f/0.95 Mark III FE lens ($799 from B&H)

Shenyang China, Apr 17, 2019 – Zhongyi Optics (ZY Optics) have released the new Mitakon Speedmaster 50mm f/0.95 version III for full frame Sony E, Nikon Z and Canon RF 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.

An eleven-blade diaphragm helps to produce a softly diffused out-of-focus rendering (bokeh). The enclosure of the lens is made of metal to strengthen its durability.

  1. I wonder if it will be any sharper? Wide open the Mark II is soft as a baby’s bottom, which may be fine for the trade-off, but a little extra sharpness in the center would be welcome.
