ZY Optics Releases the Mitakon Speedmaster 65mm f/1.4 Lens for Fujifilm GFX Cameras

ZY Optics officially released the new Mitakon Speedmaster 65mm f/1.4 Lens specifically designed for Fujifilm GFX 50S and GFX 50R medium format mirrorless cameras.

Product Highlights

  • Fujifilm G Mount Format
  • 50mm (35mm-equivalent)
  • Aperture Range: f/1.4 to f/16
  • Manual Focus Design
  • Shallow Depth of Field
  • Outstanding Bokeh Imagey
  • Nine-Bladed Diaphragm

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 characterised 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 prevents 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.
