ZY Optics has announced the newest in their T1 lens in their cinema lens lineup. The Mitakon 50mm T1.0 MFT Cine joins the 17mm, 25mm and 35mm T1.0 lenses announced last year to complete their Micro Four Thirds cine lens lineup. As with the other lenses in the range, the 50mm T1.0 is very low budget, coming in at only $399 and now you can buy a bundle containing all four lenses which includes a free protective case.
Offering a 25° field of view, equivalent to a 100mm lens on full-frame, the new lens offers similar characteristics and bokeh to the rest of Mitakon’s MFT Cine lineup, giving filmmakers consistency as they swap between them. It has a minimum focus distance of only 60cm and with that super bright T1 aperture, the 9-blade circular aperture presents very pleasing out-of-focus areas.
