Mitakon Zhongyi Speedmaster 65mm f/1.4

Beta testers of the Mitakon 65/1.4 like Jonas Rask have already shared samples at our Fujifilm GFX facebook group since several weeks, such as Jonas Rask, who who say here:
“It’s a fantastic lens that I’ve really enjoyed shooting the past months. Not as sharp as the GF63 counterpart wide open, but it holds up really nice when stopped down.
Wide open, corners are not as sharp as center – obviously. But it has minimal vignette. Just to be clear, I was told that this is NOT a converted full frame 50mm f/0.95.
What you will get with this lens is a really unique look to your images.
We’ve all heard the phrase “I love that medium format look” – which basically translates into “Wide field of view combined with narrow depth of field“
This lens will make your full body portraits look like something out of a Pentax 67 with 105/2.4.
You can obviously achieve this look with other lenses (Voigtländer 58/1.4, Minolta 58/1.2 etc) But the Mitakon just feels right at home on the GFX with its native mount and size.”

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.
