Press Text
The Speedmaster 50MM F/0.95 III is an ultra large diameter standard lens designed for full-frame mirrorless cameras.

While achieving the phenomenal brightness of aperture opening F0.95, it is also equipped with portability, design has been designed considering balance with the mirrorless machine.

Utilizing the features of the ultra-large aperture lens, it is possible to take handheld photographs in places where there is little light, or to take advantage of beautifully blurred backgrounds.

Improvements from SPEEDMASTER 50 mm F 0.95 (version 2)
• Improved optical performance
• Adds compatibility with Nikon Z & Canon RF mounts

The lens will be displayed at CP + 2019 held from February 28th to March 3rd. If you are visiting the venue, stop by Kent Faith International / Focusing Studio (G – 12) booth.
