Mitakon Zhongyi Speedmaster 85mm f/1.2 Sony E-Mount Lens

Hot on the heels of last week’s Zeiss Batis 85mm F1.8 comes an even faster portrait lens for Sony E-mount, Mitakon Zhongyi Speedmaster 85mm f/1.2 Lens for Sony a7 a7R a7S a7II (Pre-order for $799 on eBay)

This ultra-fast f/1.2 manual focus portrait lens is ideal for shooting without flash in low light. Designed for the use of full frame Sony E-Mount cameras, the large aperture also provides shallow depth of field portrait photography. The truly circular aperture creates a shallow depth-of-field that brings attention to the subject and blurs the background, which is critical for portraits.

The lens incorporates 9 elements in 6 groups with 2 pieces of Extra-low Dispersion elements & 4 pieces of High Refractive Index elements. This helps reducing aberrations and maintain excellent sharpness even at f/1.2. Manual focus design and a click-less, silent aperture ring promote smooth handling and are especially well-suited to video applications. The lens is built of metallic enclosure with additional protective processing, which gives extra durability and aesthetic.
