If you like fast lenses then the ZY Optics Mitakon Speedmaster 50mm f/0.95 should raise a brow. The new 50mm lens has a different optical design from the mirrorless version and it is currently the world’s only f/0.95 lens designed for DSLR cameras. Due to the large size of the rear element, the new 50mm f/0.95 lens cannot be made into Nikon version, unfortunately.
The new lens has a natural 50mm perspective along with an ultra-fast f/0.95 maximum aperture, With the 0.95 f-stop the shallow depth-of-field is very present and will make isolating the subjects from the background very easy. It will vignette as well making it a very artsy look when shooting wide open.
A carefully-designed 12 elements in 6 groups optics system with 1pc of HRI (High Refractive Index) & 5pcs of UD (Ultra-low dispersion) elements successfully minimizes the chromatic aberrations and delivers exceptional image quality.
An eleven-blade diaphragm helps to produce a softly diffused bokeh. The body of the lens is made of metal for strength and durability. The front threads are 82mm for mounting screw-in filters.
ZY Optics have been releasing f/0.95 lenses for different camera systems. A mirrorless design of 50mm f/0.95 (III) had been released in 2019 and is available in Sony FE, Canon RF & Nikon Z mounts.
