Mitakon Speedmaster 65mm f/1.4 on the Fuji GFX
I have recently purchased the new Mitakon Speedmaster 65mm 1.4 for the GFX 50S and wanted to share a couple of images from this combo for your readers.
The lens is very heavy – similar to Zeiss Otus and seems well constructed with the aperture ring being smooth.
I was pleasantly surprised by the sharpness and 3D look of this lens when shot at 1.4 , and at the price of 1100.00 USD including customs and shipping to UK, it’s a definite keeper for me.
Both images taken wide open, will be happy to answer any questions on the lens.
These are amazing photos. Exactly what i want to achieve with my photography.
I’m sure that smaller sensor camera can only achieve this level of DOF separation by Brenizer method.
I really want to see another works from Rai. Do you have his blog/website address?
From a purely technical standpoint, these are some of the best looking files I’ve seen on this site, which I think says a lot.
Great photos. But could you take some more pictures? It’s easy to evaluate if we have more pictures.
really moody, really quite nice, I was expecting this. Wish there were more photos though.
What about a portrait mister.?
more photos please! there are visible CA in first image (easy to remove)
I’m quite interested in the Fuji GFX line, specifically the GFX 50R. However, the biggest reason I haven’t sold off my Leica SL and lenses is the lack of fast glass for the Fuji GFX. I actually wasn’t even aware that Mitakon made lenses for the Fuji, so this is a surprise! Nice shots, would love to see more. Is there a 35mm equivalent that these guys make? A quick Google search didn’t come up with anything.
65mm f/1.4 on the GFX is equivalent to 51mm f/1.1 on 35mm. There are dozens of 50mm lenses available for 35mm format, including many with similar apertures, or even bigger ones! Mitakon actually makes a 50mm f/0.95 for full-frame mirrorless though only for Sony E-mount. If you’re looking for M-mount, Voigtlander or 7artisans will be your only affordable options (or splurge for a Noctilux).
Yes but the compression is not the same.
If you are using autofocus with the Leica SL, test the 50R first before you make any decision. The autofocus is not bad for a medium format camera, but you cannot compare it to the SL. I have used the SL before and I own the 50R.
