Mitakon 35mm f/0.95 Mark 'ii' lens review with samples

  • 🎬 Video
  • ℹ️ Description

So this is the first ever Mitakon lens I've tested, and also the fastest aperture lens I've ever reviewed. f/0.95!!! This is a very fun and useful piece of kit. But can its image quality keep up with its fantastically wide aperture?

A few important things to note. This lens is only for mirrorless cameras, and it covers APS-C sensors - so it's ideal for Fuji X, Sony E, and Canon EOS M.

Equipment I use to make my videos (Amazon affiliate links):

All pictures and footage shot by me on Fuji X-T10 and X-T2 cameras.

Gorgeous lens, I hope they do similar updates to the already excellent 25mm 0.95 for m43 mount. And while we are wishing for things, a dedicated lens hood would be nice. But kudos to Zhong Yi optics for the Speedmaster series. I don't have to dream f/0.95 lenses anymore.
