Mitakon Speedmaster 50mm f / 0.95 lens L
This new 50mm should be one of the best – and most extreme – depth of field controls any L-mount camera user will find on the market today. It promises to be one of the brightest lenses at its price point and should give you soft and rich bokeh for those shallow depth of field looks.
With its 11 elements in 8 group optical formula, it should also offer nice image quality and definition. Good colors and low dispersion mean the least amount of color fringing and chromatic aberrations.
It should also do reasonably well when shooting at night with its ultra-wide aperture and should handle a number of other low-light situations that you could use it for.
