Mitakon Speedmaster 50mm f/0.95 EF


Zhongyi Optics (ZY Optics) has released a new Mitakon Speedmaster 50mm f/0.95 lens for Canon EF mount cameras and it's currently the world’s only f/0.95 lens designed for DSLR cameras. 

ZY Optics has previously released a mirrorless design of the 50mm f/0.95 (III) lens which is available in Sony FE, Canon RF & Nikon Z mounts but this new 50mm lens has a different optical design from the mirrorless version.

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 characterised by its bright f/0.95 aperture. It also affords a great degree of control over depth-of-field for isolating subjects from the background and producing selective focus effects.

A carefully-designed 12 elements in 6 groups optics system with 1pc of HRI (High Refractive Index) & 5pcs of UD (Ultra-low dispersion) elements successfully minimises chromatic aberrations while the eleven-blade diaphragm helps to produce a softly diffused out-of-focus rendering (bokeh).

Other features include an 82mm filter thread as well as a metal enclosure to strengthen its durability.

Unfortunately, due to the large size of the rear element, the new 50mm f/0.95 lens can't be made into a Nikon version.

Take a look at some sample photos captured on the new  Mitakon Speedmaster 50mm f/0.95 Canon EF lens provided by ZY Optics below.
