ZY Optics has unveiled the new Mitakon Speedmaster 65mm f/1.4 lens for the Fujifilm G mount. It’s the fastest standard-length native lens available for Fujifilm’s GFX medium format mirrorless cameras.
The manual-focus lens provides the rough equivalent of a 50mm field of view (in 35mm terms) when mounted on a GFX camera, and the fast f/1.4 aperture provides an ultra shallow depth of field and the ability to work in low-light environments.
ZY Optics says the optical quality of the lens is designed to meet the demands of GFX sensors, which have resolutions starting at 51.4 megapixels in the GFX 50S and GFX 50R. There’s also a 102MP GFX camera on the horizon.
Specs and features of the lens include 11 elements in 9 groups, a 9-blade rounded aperture, a metal lens body, and a built-in retractable lens hood.
