    There's also a shop in the Netherlands that stocks it, but I can't seem to find it right now I'll keep looking for you.

    I really enjoyed this thread which caused me to join the forum (thanks Jack for the help)

    I have been eyeing the Mitakon and almost bought it, I didn't because I already have the Zeiss FE 55 and instead purchased the Zeiss 16-35 FE, but now I find myself wanting the Mitakon again, just to shoot at f/.095......

    That seems a perfectly good reason to get the Mitakon!
    Now f/.095...... that would be a real challenge to focus!

    Which is precisely the beauty of using it on the A7 series with the EVF focus confirm.

    Yup, at f/0.095 instead of f/0.95 you could probably do Photolithography!

    Re: No love for the Mitakon 50 f0.95?

    We recently mourned William Palank, a San Francisco photographer and orthodontist who died unexpectedly.
    William Palank - Leica User Forum, Leica User Forum
    In the last few years William traveled to Ethiopia at least twice with his Leica M9 and 50mm Summilux ASPH.
    Each time he brought back stunning images, for example this portrait Hamar Girl - Leica User Forum.
    William printed a copy for me and had it framed by his favorite San Francisco framing shop.

    The following is a shot of that framed print in my study as the afternoon sun illuminates it from the side and brings it alive.

    I shot the image with an A7R and the Mitakon 50/0.95 lens.

    Here is a crop.


    Under normal lighting one cannot see the dust on William Palank's print.
    I should clean the dust off the cover glass but it gives the image temporarily a nice touch, me thinks.
    With best regards, K-H.

    K-H, The lateral illumination accentuates the details (dust). Should not be a big problem under diffused light.

    Thanks Vivek. That's right. Dust is great in scattering light, making it anisotropic.
    For the image I took there was pretty much a right angle between the sunlight direction and the direction of the camera's line of sight.
    But I liked the effect.

    k-hawinkler,
    I hadn't heard about the passing of William Palank. I have enjoyed his photography for many years on the forums. It is lovely that you have his beautiful art to remember him by.

    Can anyone who owns this lens and the FE55 please compare the bokeh? The FE55 is first rate, so I'm hoping the Mitakon is its equal or better.

    Many thanks Cindy.

    Indeed his work of art is a powerful reminder.
    I feel extremely lucky having such an excellent print from William Palank.
    In my interactions with him William was always enthusiastic, gentlemanly, and extremely helpful.
    He was eager to share his great experience and knowledge.
    He was my friend and I miss him.

    Take care, Karl-Heinz.
    With best regards, K-H.

    David...I found this review Sony FE 55mm F1.8 vs. Mitakon 50mm F0.95 (Note: Mk1 not the Mk2 Dark Knight)
    It should give you some idea even though the pics are fairly smallish.
    The Mitakon looks great from F0.95 to f1.4 but then the Sony FE kicks it's butt IMHO ...Cheers Barry

    The 35mm version of this lens should be released any day now. Anyone waiting/wanting one?

    Could that be Kamera Express ? They seem to have that lens on stock, but considerably more expensive than the store you mention above !

    Waiting on cash. Lol

    I have a wedding to put on this month. So I hired two wedding shooters so I get a hall pass from doing my daughters wedding but I'm taking this lens to do a couple shots. Plus I want to shoot my grandson with it and I have a personal project in mind, so I'll have it in Moab for the workshop starting Monday.

    For me it's not a critical focal length so I'm going to play with it

    Re: No love for the Mitakon 50 f0.95?

    Mine just showed up. Very nice packaging and the build is very very nice. Took 3 shots and I think this is unique enough and separates itself from my 85 1.4. I tell you folks what I told Jack. The ZA 50 and ZA 85 are very close in focal length and more important very much the same look lenses, although the 50mm is far better wide open than the 85. So having two lenses very close in look and focal was making no sense, this Mit gives me a completely different look. Im on the road for about 10 days. So Ill keep you posted have to run to El Centro for a funeral than home and than on to Utah.

    This lens for me is a very specialized lens meaning the only reason I have it is to shoot wide open. The following are from a short trip we took to Sedona last week. The lens was attached to the A7r converted to full spectrum and a 830nm filter attached to the lens.


    f0.95 1/100 ISO 1600 830nm IR (ISO set to auto) handheld

    The original thought was to stack the following 2-files only I didn't like the way it turned out.


    f0.95 1/125 ISO 4000 830nm IR (ISO set to auto) handheld


    f0.95 1/125 ISO 4000 830nm IR (ISO set to auto) handheld


    f0.95 1/80 ISO 4000 830nm IR (ISO set to auto) handheld


    f0.95 1/100 ISO 6400 830nm IR (ISO set to auto) handheld


    I'm pleased...

    I've been watching the eBay prices for this lens. It looks like there are more being imported to the USA, and the prices are dropping. A month ago they were pretty consistent around $850. The latest best price is $758 from Hong Kong, or $777 from a USA distributor. All sellers are highly rated.

    I have absolutely nothing but love for this Mitakon lens. I'm not an expert shooter and this is my first all manual focus and aperture control lens and I can't say enough about it. I use it on my Sony A6000 more than any other lens in my bag which includes the Zeiss 16/70Z the SEL 35/1.8, SEL 55/210 and the SEL 16mm. I'm new to this forum, but I'll figure out how to post pictures soon!

    I find the more I use this lens the more I like it.

    Yall are enabling with these shots. I'm trying to hold out for a version with aperture clicks and metadata would be really nice as well.

    Amen to that! (But it's nice enough as-is to deal with that minor inconvenience)

    Welcome aboard troybflying!
    This Mitakon has a really impressive IQ judging by the shots I've seen here.

    Thought I would post this here also but very unique look to images even at a distance wide open. The processing is something different to go along with the unique look of this lens. For me its a keeper. i like what i can draw from it outside anything else..

    Excellent Guy. Thanks.
    I will give that kind of shot a try with my system.

    But first a shot of Black Mesa at night with the Mitakon on NEX-5N.

    The above image is a crop from a larger image developed with PS CS6 from the .ARW file.
    In PS CS6 the high resolution .ARW image looks fine whereas Sony's Image Data Converter Ver.4 shows many dead pixels.
    I understand PS CS6 maps out dead pixels automatically.

    The following is a downsized image of the OOC JPG.
    One even can see short (30 second exposure) star trails.


    However, looking at the high resolution OOC JPG I have never seen that many dead pixels before from any of my cameras.
    Here is a link to the high resolution OOC JPG file. http://winklers.smugmug.com/2015-02-...O/_DSC5636.jpg
    If you click on the link and subsequently click on the image you will see the high resolution OOC JPG image.

    Although I live at an altitude of around 7,000 feet I wonder whether cosmic rays are not the only culprit for the many dead pixels.
    Could there be a manufacturing defect?
    With best regards, K-H.
