I recently received the Mitakon Zhongyi 35mm f0.95 lens as a gift. And it is exactly what I've been looking for.
The depth of field is obviously the main attraction. The lens feels really solidly built and is surprisingly easy to focus at f0.95. And it looks great on the camera. Whatever "character" means—yeah, it's got that for days. This is a look that I thought I'd need to shoot medium format film to get. The focus fall off is just beautiful.
