Zhongyi Optics Launches Mitakon Speedmaster 80mm F1.6 Lens

Exceptional low-light performance and creative control for medium format cameras

ZY Optics 80mm F1.6 Lens

Zhongyi Optics (ZY Optics) has announced the Mitakon Speedmaster 80mm F1.6, a new prime lens designed for GFX and XCD mounts. This new lens aims to match the high standards set by the cameras it is designed for and offers plenty of creative control to ensure high image quality. The optics have been designed from the ground up for photographers using medium-format camera systems from manufacturers such as Hasselblad and Fujifilm.

The Mitakon Speedmaster 80mm F1.6 features a large F1.6 aperture, which will enable you to capture stunning images even in low-light conditions. This aperture provides exceptional control over depth of field, making it ideal for achieving beautifully blurred backgrounds with selective focus. When it comes to the engineering of the lens, it includes a 10-element, 6-group optical system with 4 HRI (High Refractive Index) and 1 UD (Ultra-low Dispersion) elements, all to help minimize chromatic aberrations and to help ensure image quality.

A feature common across this style of lens is the ability to produce smooth bokeh, which is all thanks to the Mitakon Speedmaster 80mm F1.6 rounded nine-blade diaphragm. This diaphragm design creates a pleasing out-of-focus effect, enabling subjects to stand out against soft, artistic backgrounds.

This lens’s key aspect is durability, which is made with a metal enclosure, all to help ensure that it has many years of faultless service. The lens also includes a built-in retractable lens hood to help prevent stray light and unwanted flares; the fact that it’s an integrated part of the lens will also mean that you’re less likely to leave it at home or lose it.
