The chinese folks at Zhongyi (aka Mitakon) spilled out what could become a real gem for the Micro Four Thirds world. An “almost” pancake sized 25mm f/0.95 lens! A sort of downsized Voigtlander Nokton 25mm lens (here on eBay).

The developer promises the lens price will be on par with the Nokton but the image quality will actually be higher. And to proof that he also shared those (non full size) image samples:

There is no info on when this lens will ship. We only know it comes in Black only…
