Could you post some sample footage of it shot wide open? Are you on a 2.1? I got a Meike 35 0.95 for $100 and it's surprisingly pretty decent wide open on my 1.4.

This lens is fantastic. In a sea of cheap f/0.95 lenses, the most of which I have purchased, tested, and returned, this one stands out. I haven't tested the Voigtlander equivalents yet, but this lens is so much superior than the comparable 7Artisans that it doesn't even belong in the same category. Beautiful build, handling, and optics.

Do you mind posting some samples wide open with this lens?

 I haven't tried that exact lens, but I've used other Laowa lenses, and they're usually pretty solid. The f/0.95 aperture sounds like a dream for low light. If you're into fast lenses, I'd say give it a shot.

Moonlight do you have any sample videos you shot with other Laowas wide open? I have a Meike 35 0.95 and it's decently sharp wide open on mid to long distances. It struggles for very close up shots though.
