As far as I know the Mitakon 35mm f/0.95 is identical to the 7Artisans except different filter thread, and twice the price. So unless you really care about 55mm filter thread instead of 52mm, let's dismiss that option outright.

I would not go so far as to say the Mitakon f/0.95 and the 7Artisans f/1.2 are identical other than filter size!  The Mitakon is a faster lens.  So if low light performance is important, it has an edge.  And reviews/tests that i have seen show that the 7Artisans starts hitting its best sharpness after f2.0... while the Mitakon starts doing so much sooner.  Its been well regarded, and maintained its price point for a reason.  Something to keep in mind.
