X-Mount "Risespray" 35mm f/0.95 Manual Lens

Nice! Are you happy with the lens? Thinking about buying it as a cheaper alternative to the Mitakon and even the new 7artisans 0.95 lenses. But not so many reviews, so not sure if it is a good buy.

I've been having a good time with this lens. Being all manual, it takes a little practice to focus wide open... very shallow depth of field. I bought mine for less than $250 USD including delivery. The lens has its own "personality." Happy? You can see the results.

Good to hear. I got a cheap second hand 7artisan 55mm 1.4. I really like manual shooting so that's why I'm looking for an extra lens. 55mm is often to long for me, that's why I want a 35mm. I really like the default colours of the Mitakon, a bit warmer then the 7artisan lenses. Of course this can be fixed in post, but the Mitakon has something special. I read the Risespray is a copy of the Mitakon with even some improvements so very tempting to get one...

    • Nice. Which one was taken with X100F?

    • I can confirm this. My X100V had the same as do some of my other XF WR lenses. The fact that some lenses do and others don't (same lens) leads me to believe that Fuji has quite wide production tolerances. Over the past 7 years I've had (partly still have) 13 different XF lenses. 4 of them needed replacement due to production failures (loose aperture or focus rings, crooked mount...). Though I really like Fuji cameras, to me that is a bit too often...
    • It's quite a difference. As a basis the Leica Q2 already has a very good 47Mp full-frame sensor paired with one of the best lenses ever made (a 28mm Summilux). By leaving out the color array filter on the sensor and optimizing the sensor lenses for monochrome images, you get an incredibly sharp and contrast rich monochrome image. Without the color array filter you also boost the low light performance and expand the dynamic range of the sensor by approx. 2 stops. In the meanwhile, I couldn't resist and purchased a Q2 Monochrome. I'm not disappointed. Though my X-Pro produces very nice Acros files, the Q2 Monochrome is a different league (also in price to be fair). I usually shoot monochrome for my personal work, but to be able to shoot at ISO25000 and have files as clean as an X-Pro at ISO1600 is amazing. At normal ISO levels, the level of detail and the tonality of the Q2 files is stunning. Both for the jpegs out-of-camera and the DNG raw files via Capture One.
    • I use Blender, it's an open source program, free to use and many good tutorials on YouTube. The program is also used by professional moviemakers. It does the same or more as the apps recommended above. link to Blender Edit: Davinci Resolve is another free video editor worth trying.
