    Its most likely same lens as its made by Shenyang Zhongyi, Chinese company producing OEM lenses for SLR Magic. Mitakon is most likely their own brand.

    Just be warned that sample quality can be quite variable..

  2. I am aware of the same production plant, but so far can’t find the proof that it is the same lens though. Price difference is over 200 USD and SLR Magic is officially not available yet. That confuses me a bit.

    The Mikaton does seem very interesting to me, but I am quite satisfied with my Voigtlander 35mm F1.4; small and good performance.

    I’m currently debating the SEL24F18Z – have you tried it?

  4. Yes, I have Sony SEL2418. There is nothing much better at 24mm for the NEX. The only problem of that lens is its price and lack of Zeiss sharpness wide open. But it can focus very close, and it has great contrast, as you would expect from Zeiss. I haven’t officially test it, but it should happen soon.

    Nice set of 35mm lenses you have , I guess that Distagon might be better the rest @ f2 , but nothing else can go down to f1.2. I am expecting my Nokton 35mm f1.2 in few days ( and 35mm f1.4 S.C. might be for sell). Cheers.
    A zasielam aj pozdrav aj v rodnom jazyku 😀

    • Taktiež zdravím 🙂
      In fact, there are some options how to get to 35 f1.2 and even bellow. All of them includes Metabones Speed Booster. That’s why I included Canon EF 50 f1.2 L and 50 f1.8 II.
      But, CV 35 f1.2 II has its own character, and personally I like it. It is not a lens for test charts however, and it is one of the reasons, why I still haven’t published resolution results, as I am repeating tests to eliminate all possible variables. I send my CV 35 f1.2 II to local service to check for possible de-centering…
