Mitakon Zhongyi Speedmaster 25mm f/0.95 Overview

A truly fast and compact prime, the silver Speedmaster 25mm f/0.95 Lens from Mitakon Zhongyi is compatible with Micro Four Thirds mirrorless cameras, where it presents a 50mm equivalent focal length. The bright f/0.95 maximum aperture is well-suited to low-light shooting and also offers extensive control over your focus position for shallow depth of field applications. One extra-low dispersion element is incorporated within the lens construction, as well as four extra-high refractive index elements and two high refractive index elements, to limit chromatic aberrations and distortions for a high degree of clarity and sharpness throughout the aperture range. Additionally, optimized lens coatings have been applied to limit lens flare and ghosting.

The physical construction of the lens revolves around its manual focus design, which is complemented by printed depth of field and distance scales for zone focusing techniques. The manual aperture ring also features a click-less design for silent, smooth operation that is beneficial to video recording applications. Additionally, an eleven blade near-circular diaphragm produces a smooth out-of-focus quality when working with selective focus techniques.

This lens is compatible with most Micro Four Thirds cameras, however is unfit for use with select cameras featuring a ladder-structured light baffle surrounding the image sensor, including the Olympus E-PL6, E-PL5, E-PM2, E-PM1, and E-M5.
Normal-length prime 25mm f/0.95 lens is designed for Micro Four Thirds system cameras where it provides a 50mm equivalent focal length.
Fast f/0.95 maximum aperture is well-suited to low-light shooting applications and also affords extensive control over depth of field.
One extra-low dispersion element, four extra-high refractive index elements, and two high refractive index elements all work to suppress chromatic aberrations and distortions for a high degree of sharpness and even illumination throughout the aperture range.
Optimized lens coatings have been applied to reduce lens flare and ghosting for increased contrast and color neutrality.
Manual focus design is complemented by printed depth of field and distance scales.
Manual click-less aperture ring is smooth and silent during use, making it well-suited to video applications.
An 11-blade near-circular diaphragm contributes a pleasing bokeh quality.

Mitakon Zhongyi Speedmaster 25mm f/0.95 Reviews

Nice lens, no good with anamorphic adapters though.

By Rick

Beautiful build quality and compactness, defined enough in the centre, but very soft in the corners wide open. Also, if you want to use this lens together with an anamorphic adapter, you'll be wasting your time, at least with the SLR Magic Anamorphot-40 Compact. Even stopping way down not result in sufficient focus.

This is a manual lens which I bought on sale. It has an aperture of .95 which makes it a real go-to choice.

My go-to lens

With an insanely low f/0.95, I expect to be using this lens a lot. It is fully manual and as a new videographer I realized that the lack of automation would force me to learn the basics. I haven't found them so tough so far.

Fun is an understatement

If this is your first manual lens, it will take a bit of getting used to - but once you do, it starts to change the way you look at things. The control you have & character you get out of this lens is more than just fun - it's like whole new activity you've embarked on & changes your camera. You can sweep through the focal range in one motion if you hold it right, which is very nice for video - you can get that smooth adjustment without having to take your hand off. It definitely benefits from having a set of filters to help open the aperture when outside in the sunlight. Without a filter, it improves your low-light abilities. Also: the size is satisfying & build quality is sturdy.

I use a lot of adapted lenses on my Panasonic GH5 mainly for videos. I already have the superstar combo of Metabones Speedbooster .71 and the Sigma 18-35 art lens. Bought my first native MFT lens, the Panasonic 42.5 f1.7 recently. Love it. The size and ease of use for run n gun filming. Was looking for a 25mm for the same reasons. Bought this for the good manual focus I kept reading about as I always use MF for videos and that was a drawback on the Panasonic lenses. The video quality of this lens just blew me away. Fantastic build quality, and smooth functioning focus and aperture rings remind me of the various vintage glasses that I also use. And the phenomenal low light ability of this lens is a HUGE bonus for MFT shooters. I wish Zhongyi make a similar 17.5mm lens. This lens costs a fraction of what the Voigtlander costs and you get a lot for your money. Totally love this lens.

Lens is great. B&Hs listing eh

Lens is what I thought it would be. However the listing is misleading as the lens does not come in the packaging seen above. I didn't get that box with my order and customer service didn't seem to care. I obviously don't need the box but when your item comes not as described and customer service is unable to explain its a little disappointing.

Almost perfect on the G9

By Toby

For a tiny, $350 f/0.95 lens (that I bought used from B&H for $280 in flawless condition), this lens is more than sharp enough for general photography and videography on a 20MP Micro Four Thirds sensor. It has a bit of chromatic aberration at f/0.95 and it's prone to moderate flaring and loss of contrast when shooting against bright light sources, but the ultra-fast maximum aperture, full-frame equivalent depth of field of about f/2 (rounded up from f/1.9), and good resolution that can be squeezed out of this lens, for just $350 brand new, make those shortcomings more than tolerable. This lens hardly adds any weight to my camera bag, and it handles very well when attached to my Panasonic G9, despite being almost completely made of metal and feeling quite solidly built. My only minor gripe with this lens is that the aperture ring turns smoothly, without clicks to lock into the various available aperture settings, but I bought this lens to shoot at f/0.95, and that's where it lives for most of the time I use it, so this isn't a tremendous issue for me.

Great Quality, Great Price!

I'm not a professional, but my take on this lens is that it is easy to use, very well built, and is exactly what I needed for the video needs I had. I'm using it with the BMPCC4K and it couldn't be easier to get a great cinematic feel with this lens. It's crisp and the f0.95 makes for some great depth of field transitions and has been great for some good b-roll. Highly recommend, especially for the price.

question

Anyone have compatibility issues using this with an Olympus e-m5 Mark II body?
Asked by: Dennis
This lens is for MFT bodies. Since MFT was a joint design by Olympus and Panasonic, you can expect full compatibility with this lens and that camera. Don't believe me?Here is a review on this lens: Fast, Sharp and Gorgeous on the Silver E-M5 II By Scott Surprisingly sharp wide open if you nail the focus. Stop down a tad (1.2 or 1.4) for best results. This lens, in silver, looks like it was specifically designed for the E-M5 II Silver version. Rather a lot like the Zeiss 35 1.4 Distagon. Huge bang for the buck in m43.
