Normal-length prime is well-suited to everyday shooting with subjects including portraiture, street, landscape, and reportage.
Impressively bright f/0.95 maximum aperture offers great control over depth of field, for isolating subject matter using selective focus, and also benefits working in difficult lighting conditions.
One extra-low dispersion element reduces color fringing and chromatic aberrations in order to realize high clarity and accurate color rendering.
Manual focus design permits smooth, refined control along with a minimum focusing distance of 3.3'. This lens also supports rangefinder-coupled focusing for greater accuracy and focus confirmation using the camera's viewfinder.
A nine-blade diaphragm contributes to a smooth and pleasing bokeh quality.

Wondering if this will fit on a Red Epic-M with a Leica Mount. This is a camera with a non-exchangeable OLPF so I won’t be able to use a Leica OLPF.
Asked by: Tanner
It has a Leica mount. It is a 50mm so it does not have a protruding rear element. Therefore if should fit. This is a test situation since there are no reports of its use because it is not yet available form B&H.
