I ordered one immediately after I saw these shoots. Thanks for the tip, I've never come across this lens.
What other fast Chinese lenses do you know? Mount doesn't matter. I only have SLR Magic 50/0.95 APS-C and I like it. I also used Zhongyi Speedmaster 50/0.95 (full-frame) for a while and loved it. I know there is SPeedmaster 85 mm. What else?

They seem to be first made for Kodak's m43 by Sakar International. By all accounts, very fine lenses for the price. There should be a 25mm F0.95 and 8mm F3, in m43, EOS M and E-mount.

You've twisted my arm. I have ordered one from China so have a wait for shipping but the total cost was only $129.00. At that I decided that I could take a chance.

Here I go, spending all that money on an A6500 for its vaunted APS-C autofocus capability and I go out to buy a manual focus lens for it. Go figure. Laugh 1

IQ is better than I expected, I wonder about build quality, how much plastic?

There's a full frame M Mount lens similar to this one on the market now.

Well I did not receive it Klaus and received a refund instead,14 weeks & not delivered. They said send $15 more and we will send replacement guaranteed delivery 4-5 days,why did they not make that offer much earlier I would probably have accepted. Twisted Evil
