Mitakon Zhongyi 85mm f/1.2 overview

  • 1Description

A truly fast short telephoto prime designed for full-frame Sony E mount cameras, the Speedmaster 85mm f/1.2 Lens from Mitakon Zhongyi pairs the bright maximum aperture with a portrait-length perspective for extensive focus control and enhanced low-light shooting. The optical design incorporates two extra-low dispersion elements with four high refractive index elements to reduce chromatic aberrations and distortions in order to achieve notable sharpness, even at wide apertures. Additionally, the lens features a manual focus design with a floating elements system, along with a de-clicked, silent aperture ring to benefit both still and video applications. Ideally suited for portraiture applications, the refined optical design, fast maximum aperture, and longer-than-normal perspective help to isolate subject matter and deliver a high degree of sharpness and clarity.

Portrait-length 85mm prime is compatible with full-frame Sony E mount mirrorless digital cameras, and can also be used with APS-C-sized sensors where it will provide a 127.5mm equivalent focal length.
Fast f/1.2 maximum aperture benefits working in difficult lighting conditions and also enables extensive control over your focus position to benefit the use of selective focus and shallow depth of field techniques.
Two extra-low dispersion elements and four high refractive index elements help to reduce chromatic aberrations and distortions throughout the aperture range for greater sharpness, clarity, and color accuracy.
Manual focus design utilizes a floating elements system to permit focusing on subjects as close as 3.3' away.
De-clicked, stepless aperture ring permits smooth, silent aperture adjustment to benefit video applications.
An 11-blade rounded diaphragm contributes a pleasing out-of-focus quality when working with selective focus techniques.
All-metal lens barrel features printed depth of field and focus scales. Additionally, a metal lens mount also offers increased durability between the lens and camera.

    Mitakon Zhongyi 85mm f/1.2 reviews

    Speedmaster 85mm f/1.2 Lens for Sony E is rated 3.7 out of 5 by 3.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from A great Lens this is a great lens. Build is very solid. The lens is heavy only in comparison to the native FE lenses (it's equal to the Nikon 85.) I personally like it more than he Canon 85mm 1.2. The only downside is that on the lower apertures the bokeh looks more ghosted than the Canon and Nikon up till F2. As someone else noted the Mitakon lens hoods are terrible and cheap. But the lens itself is the opposite.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Delicious optics loose focusing When I first got this lens, I loved it - the optics are great and it's an inexpensive 85 1.2 - maybe not as nice as the Canon but very nice, and in a native Sony mount. However, the focusing ring has gotten extremely lose - there's more than 1 inch of play now where you can start turning and it just free spins for an inch or so before regaining traction and starting to move the glass again. It can go from ~2 meters focus distance to almost ~4 meters focus distance without anything moving. If I hold the focus ring tight towards the camera (pulling it back) focus is always tight, but it doesn't go from the minimum focus distance to infinity - it gets locked somewhere before infinity (which is actually infinity, but the focus ring moved faster than the lens). I'm sadly disappointed in this lens & will be selling it off in favor if a Canon MF lens with adapter.
