    Hi Everyone,

    I just got myself the above lens from another friend and was wondering if anyone else here has used this lens before and what are you comments or criticisms of this lens.

    I am using the E mount version.

    I've not seen anything yet. Would love to see some of your photos. I found both the 50/0.95 and 25/0.95 (Micro Four Thirds lens) to be excellent, so I know Mitakon makes good stuff :).

    Thanks Nick. Still getting used to this lens with its 1kg weight.

    No live subject today but shot a few all at f1.2
    Definitely need CA removed in post.

    Stop Sign
    (this is the only picture that I'm not certain it was @ f1.2; Though, it could be since the distance to subject was quiet a bit.)

    Thanks, @serhan@serhan. I just bought the two Batis lenses and need to take some good photos with those before I can buy anything else!

    Wow you managed to get them? It's out of stock worldwide.

    I was one of the first if not the first to get on the waiting list at my local store Newtonville Camera. They recently got them in. I was excited to get the call!
