ZY Optics has announced Mitakon Creator 135mm f/2.5, an affordable telephoto prime lens. It’s a new, improved, and a little faster version of Creator 135mm f/2.8, only this one was made in five different mounts, including both DSLR and mirrorless. And with the price tag of $299, it’s still fairly affordable just like the f/2.8 version.
The Mitakon Creator 135mm f/2.5 was made with portrait photographers in mind. It features a nine-blade circular aperture for pleasing bokeh, and it was built from nine elements in seven groups. ZY Optics promises “ultra-sharp” results with no vignetting, thanks to two Super ED (extra-low dispersion) elements and two ultra-high refraction index elements. Judging from the sample photos, it really does perform well, especially considering the price.
Speaking of the price, I guess you could already conclude from it that this is a manual focus lens. It’s available in five mounts: Canon EF, Canon RF, Nikon F, Nikon Z, and Sony FE.
