Lens Review Date: February 24, 2017 I can recommend this lens: Yes | Price: $200.00 | Rating: 9 

 
Pros: excellent built, very good skills
Cons: MF, no communication between the camera and lens - no aperture coupling
Sharpness: 9    Aberrations: 7    Bokeh: 9    Handling: 9    Value: 10    Camera Used: Pentax K-1   

I had only Leica-R lenses before I ordered this one, one week ago. I also have The Leica Elmarit-R 135/2.8 last version (order 11211, 730g) which is lovely thanks to Walter Mandler rendition. I love the Leica one.
But Mitakon Creator 135/2.8 (II) has not been overlooked either, with its high quality materials and flawless finish. Despite the criticism, the Mitakon is very good, nice colors, beautiful bokeh and reminds me the Leica-R lens. There is a new ED element for the new design of ver.II, nevertheless chromatic aberrations are still present @ f:4.0.. It doesn't realy matter... no communication between the camera and lens - no aperture coupling. But a bargain for the price, excellent built...


Xavier, Mitakon CREATOR 135mm f/2.8 ver II @ f:4.0, Iso640, 1/40s.
