I always like the sound of 0.95 but I don’t think I’d actually use it.
Is it manual focus?
I’ll stick to the much maligned but actually very good 50 1.2
50 1.4 I also like until someone handed it back to me in two parts.
50 1.8 was also great. It was the first fast lens I owned and very good value.
0.95 is impressive though but to a very limited market.

No electrical contacts, so totally manual including aperture setting.
Huge rear opening, expect mirror box clipping.

Be curious to note how many FF's it remains an actual f0.95 on...
The worst picture ever is the one not taken: so shoot, shoot, shoot! Know your equipment first however to avoid as much as possible, bad photos. ;-)

A good reason for mirror(box)less cameras!

The Lenstip review (on a Sony) left me very unimpressed.  I like manual lenses, but not this one - low IQ wide open, severe coma, etc.

Both Mitakon lenses have the same name but are nonetheless different lenses. This one was developed for the Canon EF mount (flange to sensor distance: 44mm), the former one, the one reviewed by LensTip, for the Sony E mount.

The Canon one is much thicker than the Sony one. For instance, its filter diameter is 82mm versus 67mm.

I might be interested in this. I don't care about coma as I would not use it for astro. Might be fun! I'm all in for fun!

That's too bad. Have they not announced price yet? I'd been wondering why Mitakon didn't have an EF mount version sooner simply because of the market penetration of Canon.

If under $500 I  might still be interested... Dee balls and all! ;)

No contacts = no focus confirmation. Not good.

I would be utterly surprised to see D-shaped bokeh balls outside of the f/1.4-f/1.8 range, considering the mirror box geometry of canon cameras and the highly unorthodox shape of the rear light baffle of that mitakon lens.

Nah, we're fine.  Canon has tons of slick new FF SLRs with manual focusing screens, right?

Oh wait.  They only sell one and it costs $5700.   >:(

Right, but a lot of people would shoot this thing near wide open, so I would imagine it is going to be a problem.  For many folks, telling them that their exotic f/0.95 lens has a problem that is unattractive and uncorrectable in post unless you stop it down to f/2 kind of defeats the purpose of lugging all that glass around.

But please educate me for a moment here, as this phenomenon was unknown to me until the 85 f/1.4L IS was released.  The D-shaped bokeh is less about the rear baffle and more about the sheer wide open aperture actual size being bigger than the mirror box, right?  What in particular does the baffle have to do with this?

Another manufacturer trolls ahsanford with yet another 50mm lens release.

You can have any new 50mm lens you want, as long as it doesn't say 'Canon' somewhere on it :D
