Mitakon (ZY Optics) Speedmaster Pro Ver.(M67) “The Dark Knight” 50mm f0.95 for FE Mount


photoblog/php/OD170001.JPG

Having a preference for the 50mm lens, it stands to reason I own a lot of lenses in this focal length. A lot of photographers find the focal length boring, preferring the 35mm view. Not me though, I prefer the 50mm.

Before I go on any further, if you are thinking of purchasing this lens, there are two versions. My version, “The Dark Knight” came out only 3 months after the original version.

Update: 135mm Lens - Samyang 135mm f2 for E Mount

Commlite Update + Canon 40 f2.8 STM


innovaeditor/assets/Blog/DSC02496f.jpg

I had the opportunity the other day to go for a little walk and I took along the Sony A7II with the Canon 40 f2.8 STM mounted via the Commlite EF - E mount adapter. I have now set back-button AF on all my Sony Alpha cameras but I just couldn't get this to work using the adapter. It's probably not supported so I used the top button in the usual way.
