More info about the new Rumiere APO 75mm f/0.95 FE lens: Could cost around $4,000?

Adam Werton shared some more details about this new Rumiere APO 75mm f/0.95 FE lens:

You might have seen the new about the old prototype of NISI 75mm F0.95 one, this is its reincarnation (UPDATE: This lens is NOT made by Nisi ). According to him (the lens designer), the design didn’t perform that good, so it got canceled and this one is an improved design. This lens is in its final stages, he’s waiting for the sample units from the factory, then they’ll need to further fine-tune it and they’ll decide an official price after that.

The chinese price will be about half of nikon’s new noct F0.95. Not sure about international prices, the taxes are high these days. And he also mentioned that even wide open you will get minimum aberration, he also posted lots and lots of curves and stuff that honestly i dont understand myself. (Originally he wanted to call it APOLLO 75MM APO, well that name got taken)

This lens uses some large diameter glasses, and it really made some people over factory upset, just imagine you perfect produces a large diameter glass, did everything so carefully and then in the coating process it just exploded…

This one is Full frame for sure, not sure if it covers medium format tho, but it seems to be capable of it. comes with Emount first. No EF as the flange is too much. They plan to make Z, RF, L, GFX mount options. And possibly even LPL version. Note that it’s not a Dulens product, it’s neither compact nor cheap.

Here are some lens graphs:

Now, let’s assume this will be indeed a very good lens: I think even in that case $4,000 nobody will buy it for $4,000 anyway :(
