The Mitakon Zhongyi Speedmaster 50mm f/0.95 lens was discontinued, but now it’s back. The full-frame lens is designed for mirrorless cameras and will be available in Nikon Z, Canon RF, and Sony E mount. The new and improved version is officially announced, promising improved performance and image quality compared to the old version.
Yesterday we reported that Mitakon/ZY Optics is developing the world’s fastest 135mm full frame lens, and today the company has revealed its specs and made the lens available for pre-order.
Owning the longest f/1.4 full frame lens will come at a cost, $2,999 to be precise, but it will automatically become a collectible item with just 100 of these lenses being produced.
Another expense will be the gym membership you’ll need in order to carry around the 3kg (6.6 lbs) lens.
Oh, and there’s a $500 non-refundable deposit.
