Zyhongyi Optics has announced a new, super wide-aperture prime lens for APS-C Sony, Nikon, Canon, and Fujifilm mirrorless cameras. The manual focus Speedmaster 20mm f/0.95 will be perfect for interior, landscape, or architectural photographers, and even videographers who are after a versatile, affordable, lightweight lens. It has already gone on sale in Japan for a price that is the equivalent of $430/£330/AU$655.

Wide-angle lenses are typically used for landscapes and shots of buildings (both inside and outside). But as a portrait photographer, I’m a big fan of using them for fashion photography too. It might not be the first lens that springs to mind, but it allows you to get really creative with shots. You can shoot full-body portraits at weird and wonderful angles while still keeping a lot of the background which works great for editorial shoots.
