July 15, 2022

TTArtisan has announced its latest manual focus lenses, a budget-friendly 50mm F2 full-frame lens for mirrorless cameras and an APO-M 35mm F2 ASPH. for Leica M mount.

The TTArtisan 50mm F2 lens is initially launching in Fuji X, Nikon Z, Sony E and Micro Four Thirds mounts at a budget price of £79.

It will then be available in Canon RF, Canon EOS M and Leica L mounts.

Depending on lens mount version, the compact 50mm lens measures between 34mm and 38mm from mount to lens tip and weighs between 191g and 212g.

The lens has a brilliant f/2 maximum aperture and a 10-blade diaphragm to help achieve smooth bokeh.

Its optical construction includes six elements in five groups with two high refractive index elements that help control spherical aberrations.

It has a near 50cm focusing distance and a 43mm front filter thread.

When the 50mm is used on an APS-C camera body, it has a field of view equivalent to approximately a 75mm lens.

On an MFT camera body, it will have an equivalent focal length of around 100mm.
