Most photographers have one time or another lusted for exotic lenses like the Leica Noctilux-M 50mm f/0.95. But for most people, it stops there. With a price tag of 10.000$, it’s out of most people’s reach.
But you can get the Mitakon 35mm f/0.95 MK II for a fraction of the price, if you own a Fuji X, Sony E or EOS M mount camera. Shenyang Zhongyi Optical and Electronic Company (ZY Optics) makes this wonderful lens, with the seldom feature of an f0.95 aperture. The design and look is not so different from the Noctilux either.
The first version of the Mitakon 35mm f/0.95 did not get so high praise in reviews and feedbacks online. But with the MKII version, they have both reduced the size and weight (680g to 460g), and gotten the sharpness wide open up a notch or two. Zhongyi claims on they website that they have improved the image resolution by 30% compared to the previous version, so don’t go looking for the older MK I version if you are on the look for purchasing this lens.
There is also no denying that this is a wonderfully designed lens. I really like the matte black Finish and vintage and robust design. It really matches great with the look of my Fujifilm X-T2…
