Mitakon Speedmaster 50mm f/0.95 III Review: A Minimal Improvement Over The Mark II

0.95 lenses are something special and the Mitakon Speedmaster 50mm f/0.95 III is probably the most affordable 0.95 that you might want to buy. This lens is basically the same as the Mark II lens so I included the Mark III review above and the Mark II below. The differences are:

  • The fake leather case from the previous version is gone, but you get a case now
  • The size is a little smaller, but the weight is about the same
  • The build is about the same
  • Small cosmetic differences at the front
  • Aperture blades are not flat instead of curved
  • New focus ring is more precise and turns about 360 degrees so easier to focus
  • Hood now clips onto the front better than before
  • Image quality is about the same as the old
  • Not the sharpest lens in the world, but sharp in the center at 0.95
  • Better flare control that comes from a new internal design or better optical coating
  • Slightly more contrast than the Mark II
