    From China, a 35/0.95?!

    43 Rumors | Blog | A mysterious new 35mm f/0.95 lens from "ShenyangZhongyi"

    The link given there also shows shots taken with a NEX-5N!

    Looks pretty good!

    it does look good, wonder how its performance would be against the likes of cv 35 f1.2 or penft 40 f1.4

    Maybe.... just a touch showy? Now for one of those anniversary gold Leicas, this could work!

    LOL, just a little showy!

    That seems to just be a rendering, the actual prototype is silver.

    Yup, just a rendering. I hope the actual lens would be black painted.

    Silver lens also is a RENDERING. Nobody ever saw the "real" lens.

    Actually guys, mite want to consider if that "gold" one mite just be the handmade brass prototype used to take those photo samples. The lens shown is not an artist rendering to my eye, I'd almost guarantee that is an actual product shot.

    the front element glass though sems a fit flat, like as if there is no glass elements?

    How do you know?
    .... just asking.
    For brass the color and reflection is a bit off. The glass element looks strange too.

    guys, I think it is now called Mitakon and seems available for Sony but does not seem it's out for m43 yet... google it.

    Thanks, Michiel.

    It would be interesting when the rumored Sony 35/1.8 is announced soon. I have a feeling the size of that in addition to its performance would make it very attractive.
