Mitakon Zhongyi Speedmaster 85mm f/1.2 Overview

By B&H Photo's

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.

The top caption says 85mm, the features says 67mm, is it both or neither? And what would be the correct 35mm equivalent?
Asked by: Peter
Hi, this 85mm lens will provide the same angle of view for the medium-format camera it's designed for as 67mm lens on a full-frame or 35mm camera. The actual focal length of the lens never changes--it's always 85mm.

Does it have focus confirmation? It seems that it does but nothing is mentioned on camera specs .
Asked by: Rudy
Focus peaking would be determined by the camera. If the camera does support that feature, you will be able to use it with the lens.

question

If I use this on an A7Rii and use Metabones Adapter Ultra ii 0.71x, is it still going to be fullframe? Do I need to crop it?
Asked by: `
The lens and camera are both full-frame, but the Metabones 0.71x adapter does make the lens perform 29% wider than normal, so it would actually be a 60mm equivalent.

question

Is the minimum focus 80cm as stated? Every Nikon mount version Ive seen has been 1m.
Asked by: Vaughn D.
According to the manufacturers website, Mitakon Zhongyi lists the minimum focus distance of the Mitakon Zhongyi Speedmaster 85mm f/1.2 Lens for Nikon F as 1 meter (3 feet). Our website lists it as 2.62' (80 cm). This appears to be an error on our website and should be corrected shortly.
