Now in its third version, the Canon RF-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.

Mitakon Zhongyi Speedmaster 50mm f/0.95 III Reviews
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 I recommend it and for the price and quality.
Love the bokeh
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.
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
