Zenitar 50mm f/0.95 Full Frame Lens Expected for This March

The Krasnogorsk Mechanical Plant, better known by the people under the Zenit brand, is expected to announce a long awaited 50mm f/0.95 lens for E Mount on March 15th.

Designed for a full frame format 135 and produced for Sony mirrorless cameras, in the future it is also possible to expand on the bayonet of other manufacturers.

Here is some additional information:

  • the lens has 9 elements in 8 groups
  • the angle of view in full frame is 46°
  • minimum focusing distance: 70cm
  • filter diameter: 72mm
  • multi-layer coating
  • weight: 900 g
  • 14 aperture diaphragms
  • double row of L-shaped aperture blades
  • the lens has been in development since 2015
  • price will be around $500
  • mount: Sony E

Naturally, this lens can be put on the Sony E Crop camera, however, the maximum of their abilities can be revealed only on the full-frame matrix of the Sony a7/a9 series cameras. The minimum focusing distance is 70 cm, the diameter of the filter is 72 mm. The weight is 900 grams, the L-shaped aperture, which is unusual for today’s lenses, is used in the lens scheme, as a result of which it blurs the background, while looking at the lens it seems that it has two apertures installed one after the other.

Stay tuned!
