Zhongyi Optics have officially announced their new Mitakon Zhongyi Speedmaster 17mm f/0.95 super-bright prime lens for Micro Four Thirds compatible cameras. If you own an Olympus or Panasonic camera this could be the ideal lens for capturing indoor settings, at weddings and events for example, street photography, or even for environmental portraits.

Offering a roughly 35mm angle of view when mounted on a Micro 4/3 body, the new optic offers a popular perspective for these genres, since 35mm is traditionally the focal length of choice for professionals working in these genres.
