If the typical 35mm f/1.4 or even f/1.2 lens isn’t fast enough for you, then 7artisans might have you covered. For just $255, you can pick up a 35mm f/0.95 APS-C lens for any one of these five mounts: Sony E, Fuji X, Canon M, Nikon Z, and even Micro Four Thirds (MFT).
The lens is constructed of 11 elements in 8 groups, has an aperture range of f/0.95 – 16, and has a minimum focusing distance of 14.5 inches. It has a declicked aperture ring and is manual-focus only.
Below are a few images of the lens:

Photo Rumors is an official distributor of the lens and you can find more information on it via their announcement post here.
We have featured 7artisans optics before, as they have released lenses made for a variety of mirrorless mounts in the past. In testing other 7artisans lenses, results seem pretty good especially considering the low price. For $255, this might be the most affordable way to get an incredibly fast lens that, if past results are any indication of future performance, performs admirably.
The 35mm f/0.95 is currently available for pre-order and will begin shipping at the end of November internationally from any 7artisan retailer.
