The Mitakon Speedmaster 135mm f/1.4, made by Chinese manufacturer ZY Optics and announced in October 2015, seems to be close to ship and hit the shelves. ZY Optics’ Facebook page has a clear statement:
We are shipping this beast soon.
The price isn’t on a budget level, the Mitakon Speedmaster 135mm f/1.4 sells for $2,999, and you can pre-order it with a $500 deposit at ZY Optics. Not bad for a beast weighting 3kg (6.6lb) that’s also the fastest 135mm lens you can get. Please note that according to ZY Optics’ site there will be a first batch with just 100 pieces, and that the deposit is not refundable (except if the lens cannot be delivered).
