    Russian KMZ-Zenit announced new E-mount lens "Zenitar 50mm f/0.95 E". Will cover 35mm full frame. Weight around 900 gramm. Sales manager said it will be sharp even from f0.95. Hope it's true. Estimate price ~500. Production should start in late 2016.

    Wow. Looks very interesting and great for consumers to have so much competition in the ridiculously-fast-fifty department. One question: is that ~500 what? Euros? USD?

    Pretty good! Bokeh looks busy for my taste but I'm still very curious to see what the production models will do.

    Agree. This is first prototype ever made of this lens (as manager said), aperture is not blacked and also I hate indoor light. Want to see street results with nice raw postprocessing.

    Interesting. Is that an actual aperture ring?

    Yes, manager said it's "Г"-type(form) aperture. Г - cyrilic letter, don't know how to translate.

    This is very interesting news! Nice to see more offerings to E-mount. I think the success of Samyang and then Mitakon, has sparked a revival in fast manual lenses. I kind of like the bokeh in the first two shots. Indeed sharp.
