Re: Mitakon ZhongYi lens design adoption by other photo brands

Yes it has been interesting to see all the copycats out here recently.  Maybe some are better; I don't know.

I bought the Mitakon 35mm F0.95 x mount manual lens a couple years ago, am well satisfied with it. It is sharp in the center when wide open and flat enough in field to be useful as a scene lens at F0.95 in low light or with a ND filter.

I don't feel a need to buy anything better or even possibly better.  I did buy a Meike 35mm F1.4 manual x-mount lens just to get something a little bit smaller and lighter, but the image quality of the Mitakon cannot be beat, for those times when image quality and character really matter.

Here are a few Mitakon sample shots:
