The weakest spot in the current Fuji GFX system are the lack of real fast primes. Well Zy Optics is kind enough to fullfill those needs and today they officially released the Mitakon Speedmaster 65mm f/1.4.
I know it’s manual focus only but it’s relatively cheap (available here on eBay) and as you can see from the images samples shot by Jonas Rask it shows an excellent performance!
ZY Optics releases the Mitakon Speedmaster 65mm f/1.4, designed specifically for Fujifilm GFX cameras
Shenyang China, Nov 30, 2018 – Zhongyi Optics (ZY Optics) has released a new Mitakon Speedmaster 65mm f/1.4 for Fujifilm G mount, the fastest standard-length native lens for Fujifilm GFX cameras.
Offering a natural perspective (50mm field-of-view) along with a fast maximum aperture, the Mitakon 65mm f/1.4 is a versatile normal focal length prime characterized by its bright f/1.4 aperture to suit working in low-light conditions. It also affords a great degree of control over depth-of-field for isolating subjects from the background and producing selective focus effects.
A carefully-designed 11 elements in 9 groups optics system with 2pcs of HRI (High Refractive Index) & 2pcs of UD (Ultra-low dispersion) elements successfully minimizes the chromatic aberrations and delivers exceptional image quality to meet the demanding 51.4MP sensors.
A rounded nine-blade diaphragm helps to produce a softly diffused out-of-focus rendering (bokeh). The enclosure of the lens is made of metal to strengthen its durability.
The built-in retractable lens hood design successfully minimizes the stray lights from entering the frame and at the same time, saves the trouble of losing the lens hood when you are on- the-go.
