Looks like a good lens but I have no great need for 0.95 aperture so not one for me.

I don't have that kinda money to put into a lens, but yes it would be tempting. Mainly for low light usage for me.
This lens is also due out in m4/3 mount.

I'm a little surprised at how wide the depth of field seems considering these were taken at 0.95.

Could these be crops of images that were taken from further away?
Maybe my eyes are deceiving me though. What do you guys think?
Anyway, I'm not interested in buying, thanks though Smile

25mm f.095 Angenieux lens go around 1000 USD, for a noname lens like this, may worth for 300 USD in my opinion. Series is really nice beautiful woman can sell any lens.

300USD sounds about right to me too.

The dof was one thing I noticed too, deeper than I expected, but I put that down to it being 35mm, but even so, it's deeper than I would expect.

I cant agree, many people goes to buy VM 35/1.2 with USD1200.- Korean Samyang 35/1.4 with poor quality still ask for USD700 (but who knows Samyang 2 years ago?)

I heard all glass of Mitakon 35/0.95 shall be purchased from Schott, Germany, same production line made SLR MAGIC CINE 50/0.95 (actually designed by same Chinese people) now is selling more than USD4500 but you will have to wait min. 6 months to get one.

It's not cheap because it's not Leica. Leica worked for its reputation for almost a century, Leica has a warranty, Leica has world-wide representation, Leica has repair network, Leica has resale value. USD 5K for an unknown lens from an unknown company with no reputation, no service and no warranty is the same as sending money to Nigeria. Madness. http://lavidaleica.com/content/slr-magic-hyperprime-lm-50mm-t095#update

As for this 35/0.95 lens, they are undercutting CV in half, IMHO the price is too high, but plausible. I don't think they will sell many at $600, but at $450 that would sell very well IMHO.

Leica is valueful name, but not value that much. German Labor cost is highest in the world, it will be key reason for Leica selling price.

but usd450 for a 35mm f0.95 seems ridiculous lower, it is not a CCTV lens but including 6 ED glass, I saw Chinese websit, 35/0.95 is offering 5years warranty

Leica pricing has very little to do with labor cost. Luis Vuitton handbag costs crazy money, but even if you produce "a better handbag", you wouldn't be able to charge Louis Vuitton money. Same case here.

Who is behind this warranty? What do you do if you have a problem, ship the lens to China? What do you do if the website closes down? How much time the repair + travel both ways is going to take? Who pays the shipping? Whom do you complain to if the warranty is refused? Perhaps it can have some value if you live in China. For the rest of the world, it's an empty warranty.
