I bought this lens several months ago, found the time to shoot it a bit last April and finally got around at postproducing the images. I like it a lot as a specialty lens, it has its own very distinct dreamy look wide open. A bit hard to nail focus though.

Closing it down makes for sharper images, but it then looses the look I bought it for! Might as well tape the aperture stuck to 0.95 ;-)

Great on the kids as well, as long as they don't move around.

And one shot towards the sun. Love that flare.

Three random shots from a local farm - gentle processing from RAW in LR using an in-camera profile. All wide open. On first impressions, this lens renders very similarly to the Nikon 50 f1.8 D.

Picked up this lens recently from @Scottboarding and am having a blast so far! Took it on a family vacation to Outer Banks recently (1 week before Hurricane Florence hit). It's a ton of fun! Most of these are shot wide open because ZERO POINT NINE FIVE. There's a bit of CA wide open in high contrast zones but I think it has lovely output, and if you nail the focus it is crazy sharp. The last one is like f11 or something crazy just so I could get starburst.

Sprocket, lovely colors! What camera and settings are those? Or did you develop from raw?

Here are a few I took with the lens:

Somewhere west of where you are
I would buy one, but it won't fit the E-PL5 due to the slope between the flange and the sensor. My Kodak S-1 has the same slope, leaving only the GM1 as an option. The only way I could use it is with a tube, and I don't need a f/0.95 macro lens!
Update: I now have this lens, and it will mount on my E-PL5 (barely!) but not the Kodak S-1. It also fits on the YI M1. Works great! Photos to follow, mostly outdoors in the dark.

So I've been on a long break from photo taking, I guess the lockdown has knocked me out of my groove, but the little Mitakon is pulling me back out. Not sure why this little lens doesn't get more attention, it's got oodles of personality and can be silly sharp. Bokeh can get nervous as all get-out at middle distances, but this lens is an outstanding bargain nonetheless.

Not sure why this little lens doesn't get more attention
For me, the reason is that I already have the Panasonic Leica 25mm f/1.4, which also has character and has autofocus. Also, the Mitakon 25mm isn't offered used very often, and I haven't seen good prices on it (at least not better than the € 275 that I paid for my PL25). However, if I see one offered for a good price, I might buy it and test it out. :)

When I am not in hurry, and when all I wanna capture is the dreamy background, I always mount this lens...
