    Don't get me wrong, it looks a sweet lens.
    Nice rendering of in focus areas and bokeh that is pleasing to me.

    Pancake? Not really.
    To be fair its as much of a pancake that you could expect from a 0.95 so maybe fair enough for it to own that title.
    But its not a true pancake, the lens would need to be wider than it is longer IMO.

    The video crowd should be happy.
    It is one lens that could drag me back to MFT.

    Agreed, this is no pancake.
    So what about a cupcake ? Or perhaps a muffin ...

    It is truly tiny. The price is great as well.

    looks like an interesting lens. Wonder how long we have to wait to Olympus or Panasonic to release a 25mm lens with 0.95 capability! One of the reasons I went for m43 mirrorless was for it's famed autofocus capability.

    Vivek, it seems to be a 'cine' lens, so apparently no aperture click-stops.

    Kind regards.

    All the 25 f/0.95 lenses I have are similar, Bart.

    Can't "recommend" anything, K-H. The biggest one I had, an Angenieux 25/0.95 in arri mount (large lens) was sold to part fund the Leica MM. The rest are all in C mount. A Som-Berthiot 25/0.95 (heavy but compact and tiny) is my favorite. It is not easy to find. If were buying one I would go with the new Mitakon.

    Edit: added- I might have shown this years ago.
