The Mitakon 65mm f/1.4 is set to become the first f/1.4 fast option for Hasselblad’s X system, offering enhanced low light capabilities and greater control over depth of field. With a medium format coverage of 65mm, the lens provides a 50mm field of view, and is constructed with high-quality ultra-low dispersion elements for sharp, detailed images. The prolonged focus throw and metallic housing design further allow for precise control over focus accuracy, making the lens ideal for photographers seeking optimal image quality in challenging shooting scenarios.
The Speedmaster 65mm f/1.4 lens from Zhong Yi Optics is capable of producing the company’s trademark buttery smooth bokeh effect. This is achieved through the use of nine circular aperture blades, which create a rounded bokeh effect around the light sources captured in the photograph. Additionally, the lens can produce a softly blended background that resembles butter in its texture and appearance. The lens also offers a high degree of control over depth of field, making it a versatile tool for photographers who would like to creatively manipulate their images.
The Speedmaster 65mm f/1.4 lens delivers exceptional imaging performance across the entire frame, even when used at its widest aperture setting. The lens incorporates 2 ultra-low dispersion glass elements and 2 high refraction index glass elements, which are precisely arranged to deliver optimal sharpness and clarity. As a result, the lens is capable of capturing images with sharp details and minimal field curvature, ensuring the highest possible resolution is retained along the edges of the frame.
The Mitakon Speedmaster 65mm f/1.4 lens distinguishes itself from other XCD lenses with its internal focus design, which allows for seamless adjustment of focus without any extension or retraction of the lens housing. This feature also enables the lens to support a variety of camera accessories, such as filters and matte boxes, with sturdy and reliable mounting capabilities.
