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.

Great review. I bought one of these for my Canon M3 about a month ago. I agree with all your points. Overall I love this lens.

Very nice review, I'm the happy owner of this great lens and even though it's not for everyone being aware of it's limitations and using it as the specialty piece of hardware it really is will yield excellent results!

Fantastic review! Your review methods are great! I just got this lens and, unfortunately, I find the lens flaring to be insanely high and unusable. That being said, it is great for indoor, low-light, and overcast settings. It renders images with a pleasing artistic quality - just be careful when taking photos with bright lights/sun in the background.

I've just found the review I was looking for. Thanks!

I wish there were two versions, one with a clicky aperture ring and one with the smooth ring. I'm used to shooting stills and using a de-clicked aperture ring, but I would really like a clicky one.

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.

Definitely buying this for my Fuji x-a1. Thank you Christopher!

Even wide open it’s VERY sharp. Good enough for magazines & cropping in you won’t be sad about
