Mitakon Zhongyi Speedmaster 50mm f/0.95 III Overview

Now in its third version, the Sony E-mount Speedmaster 50mm f/0.95 III from Mitakon-Zhongyi is an exceptionally fast normal-length prime with enhanced flare resistance. Obviously distinguished by its f/0.95 maximum aperture, this lens excels in low-light situations and affords impressive control over depth of field. Its optical design incorporates one high refractive index element along with five ultra-low dispersion elements to produce well-corrected imagery void of spherical and chromatic aberrations. The lens's manual focus design permits working with subjects as close as 1.6' away and an 11-blade diaphragm contributes to a pleasing bokeh quality.

Normal-length prime is designed for use with full-frame Sony E-mount mirrorless digital cameras and can also be used with APS-C models where it provides a 75mm equivalent focal length.
Fast f/0.95 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.
Five ultra-low dispersion elements and one high refractive index element helps 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 1.6' away.
De-clicked, stepless aperture ring permits smooth, silent aperture adjustment to benefit video applications.
An 11-blade diaphragm contributes a pleasing out-of-focus quality when working with selective focus techniques.
All-metal lens barrel features engraved depth of field and focus scales. Additionally, a metal lens mount also offers increased durability between the lens and camera.

Practically night vision when paired with A7S

Pros: Phenomenally capable Solid build Center sharpness is top-tier stopped down to 1.6 Quite compact for it's capability Dirt cheap compared to other f/1's Cons: No autofocus No exif data Soft wide open but could be a pro due to dreamy effect- a matter of preference

softer image than expected.

No matter the focus the image is soft wide open. Much sharper at 1.8 and at that point I’d rather have autofocus and a native lens.

Excellent

Great quality lens. Very sharp when you nail the focus. A great lens to learn everything manually.

A unique lens for a special look.

This lens is a little soft at f/0.95 (but I knew that before purchasing it), especially at close distance, but it works quite well with portraits and at mid-distances, where it sharpens up a little. The 0.95 aperture does a great job of conveying a 3 dimensional look and the bokeh is very pleasant too. However, if you're into that digital, razor-edge sharpness, this lens is probably not for you. But if you're trying to emulate the gentle look of large format film, then I wouldn't hesitate to get this lens. And as others have stated, the build quality is excellent - well above what the price point would suggest.

Solid Lens

I purchased this to experiment with a f/0.95 aperture before I dropped $8000 on a Noct. So far I am happy with the results. I am still working on getting good focus on small, closer objects, but the image of a larger animal like a deer at 10 feet looks very good. This lens feels solid and the focus and aperture rings move smoothly.

Beautiful! Best for Nikon thus far.

The lens offers everything I am looking for. Crisp, sharp and the range I was looking for and could not find with a solid metal base. I will use the lens for cinema as well as stills. What is additionally nice is the thread size. I am blessed to get filters easily to quell the 0.95 opening.

Wonderful & fun lens!

This lens is a manual lens, so focusing can be a little tricky, however pared with Sony's zebra focus & focus peaking, it isn't that bad. The results are definitely worth it! This is my favorite lens I own, it has so much character. The bokeh is sooo buttery smooth

The Blackmagic 6K uses the EF mount. The RF mount is canons new mount for mirrorless camera and can not be be adapted onto an EF mount because of the flange distances.
