Mitakon Zhongyi Speedmaster 50mm f/0.95 Reviews

A beautiful image making tank

By John
Rated 4 out of 5

Cons: This lens is heavy and big. If you put it in your bag, you will notice the weight. Walking around with it on your camera strapped to your neck is not recommended. Maybe it's my copy, but the color cast from the lens is terrible. My images start off green and gray. They are ugly straight out of the camera. Nailing critical focus, forget it. That shallow depth of field is pretty much impossible to hit handheld. Without a tripod, it's a total guessing game of what will be in focus. Set your camera to burst mode and hope for one image to have what you want in focus. Pros: It makes everything beautiful. That bokeh is second to none. For the other limited options available, what this does for the price makes it well worth it despite all its issues. Your other options for a full frame f0.95 EF lens are rare and expensive or produce a less sharp image overall. As difficult as this lens is to use, the images are just magic. I hope to use it for portraits more. The images are simply dreamy.
