Here is more information on the Mitakon Optics 28mm f/2.8 E-mount lens. The lens uses a revolver type aperture system unlike the iris system most lenses use. The Mitakon E28 was initially sold for 518 Yuan, which converts to $80. The initial offering sold quickly.

Sony E 18-55mm and the Mitakon 28mm E-mount
Samples from the Mitakon 28mm f/2.8 E-mount can be found here.
Here is an interesting lens posted by 皮叔 aka unclepi. It is a Mitakon Optics 28mm f/2.8 in native Sony E-mount. It is a manual focus lens. The lens is small, very similar to the Sony 16mm E-mount SEL16F28 and shares the same maximum aperture of 2.8. This should be an inexpensive compact solution for an equivalent 42mm focal length perspective.
We do not have any details on pricing or performance. Mitakon Optics is a lens maker from China. It is nice to see another lens maker join the E-mount system.
Thanks 皮叔 aka unclepi!
