New 42.5mm f/1.2 and 24mm f/1.7 Lens for MFT, Sony E and Fuji X
Mitakon announces the 42.5mm f/1.2 and 24mm f/1.7 Lens for MFT, Sony E and Fuji X.
Original release article:
Zhongyi Optics Announces New 42.5mm f/1.2 & 24mm f/1.7 with Sony E / M43 / Fuji X mounts
42.5mm f/1.2 will be at USD 359 and 24mm f/1.7 will be at USD 289... Length:52.5/55mm
Fuji rocks! :smile:
And if that 42.5mm f1.2 for Sony Nex is mounted via Lens Turbo, it becomes around 45-50mm f 0.95? Sweet!
Instax Rules Them All: massive sales of Fuji’s instax film. Instax Cameras sell better than Fuji X-T1 and Sony A7r!
Lenses are on sale from Mitakon/ZY Optics web site:
They are native mount lenses, so they cannot be mounted with Lens Turbo like slr lenses. Mitakon has already big 35mm 0.95 and 50mm 0.95 lenses for nex/e-mount. You can check their website or google the reviews. One of users at talkemount is getting the 35mm 0.95 next week, so he will post some shots soon...
I know of at least 2 folks that shoot Instax here...:smile:
I'm not sure what the rasion d'être could be for the 42.5mm. That is not THAT far removed from Fuji's nonpariel 35mm in regards to focal length or aperture width. And the price is not significantly different enough to give up auto-focus.
The 24 may find some adherents for the low price point paired with the wide aperture. I'd need to see some samples though. Wide, cheap and great are rarely used in the same sentence.
I'm guessing the Sony E mount lens will be for crop and not FF?
Yes, these are for Sony E mount, which is for 1.5x crop sensor, and FE mount is full frame. Mitakon has FE 50mm 0.95 and the reviews/photos at 3Dkraft, Steve Huff and FM. It is very good lens for its price, but bigger and pricier then the above:

42.5mm is an odd length for apsc. I think it was for m43. Somebody said it was announced for m43 initially. Then they most probably adopted to Fuji/Sony. Sigma did the reverse w/ 19,30,60mm as they released for apsc, dp to Sony, and then adopted to m43.
Also two lenses has 2 different looking fronts, so they might be using different manufacturers. 24mm makes more sense for apsc since the Sony/Fuji 24mm lenses are bigger and pricey... M43 has very good and less pricy 20mm/25mm range lenses...
