Mitakon Speedmaster

The Chinese company ZY Optics just opened up pre-orders for quite an unusual lens. It’s a Mitakon Speedmaster 135mm f/1.4 that boasts one of the largest apertures you’ll find for the focal length. It’ll also be quite expensive and extremely rare: the price tag is a hefty $2,999, and less than 100 units will ever be made.

The lens include a minimum focusing distance of 1.6m (~5.25ft), 11 elements in 5 groups, an 11-blade aperture, a clickless aperture ring, a 105mm filter thread, and a weight of 3kg (~6.6lb).

The lens is very unique and is going to be a collector’s item. This one of kind lens will be able to take one-of-a-kind pictures from a distance but still having extreme focus on a singular area.
