Great, fun lens, at playful price

Love this lens! For newbies, it may be a bit difficult, and the image quality is poor, wide open-this lens really needs to be at f/2.8 to be any good. The close focusing distance is really nice!

APERTURE RING NOT RUE????
by Valued Customer on August 10, 2018

Although I like the overall quality (materials feel like expensive lenses) , the aperture ring and exif info output is very strange :I put the lens at several A settings from 1.7 to 16.0, constant 640 ISO outdoors in mid morning good light. Got really different shutter speeds than on my Sony 50mm/1.8 lens and Neewer 35mm/1.7lenses. The 50mm and 35mm got results pretty much same for the two of them, while the 7Artisans consistently shot a couple of shutter clicks higher.The 7Artisans had very similar exposure, although its readout said it was shooting faster. Not sure if the lens was giving the camera inaccurate shutter info or how/why the higher speed was getting into the display readout.Probably would still recommend this lens, but not better than old glass manual 28/f2 or 35/f2 lenses you can buy on other sites, but they would be harder to return, so keep that in mind.

A street photography no brainer that gives vintage lenses a run for their money.

For the price, it's hard not to love this lens. The colors it delivers are seriously pretty. Sure it's not the sharpest in the corners wide open, and it sometimes does have some purple fringing, but there's no lens this focal length that doesn't suffer those issues for even five times that price. The manual focusing ring is reassuringly solid feeling, as is the aperture ring. The lens itself is light and small, making it perfect for street photography or travel. Speaking of street photography, if you stop down a bit, it's very easy to shoot from the hip with this lens and keep things very discrete even at close distances. On an A6000/6300/6500, you can use the focus peaking and zoom features and get sharp images quickly with a little practice.The most obvious comparison for this lens is probably something vintage and adapted. It's true that you MAY get better photos with a good adapter and a pristine vintage lens, but if you don't know your stuff and are buying blind online, it's a bit of a crapshoot to find good stuff, PARTICULARLY with lenses this wide. It's also a tall order to find a lens this compact at this focal length, especially factoring in the length of an adaptor. I have and love my adapted lenses, but this lens gives most of them a run for their money and beats them in some ways. If you own a crop sensor Sony camera, it seems silly not to buy one at this price.

Great Manual Portrait Lens for its Price
by Valued Customer on July 15, 2018

When you consider the price, it is definitely a great lens. It is not the sharpest lens and leaves some vignette at f1.8 but still allows you to capture great portraits with lovely bokeh. Focus distance is also really short so you can get close to the objects and even have macro-like shots with it. Although it is a manual lens, the metal body and placing of the rings makes it easy to handle and set the f and focus.

Are you kidding me? This is the best little lens I have EVER owned I showed this off to all the photographers at work and they are amazed. Take a look at the photos yourself. I did not edit them to look good (I wanted a toy to replace my kit lens that broke, on my alpha a6000.but this is NO toy.. I'm not repurchasing a kit lens, this is my favorite lens. And for $69.99?????????????? This lens works better than my $300 kit lens. My god. (I just hope it lasts a long time, and doesn't die out like my crap kit lens did)Take a look. excite

it's a great deal for a MF lens

I'll keep it simple it is WAY better than any vintage lenses I've tried in this price range. Wide open, my copy is as sharp as I could ever need in the center, and I find the color quite pleasing. It's smaller than I thought it would be, which is great (I'll probably ditch my 23mm 2.8 fuji pancake) The only negative so far is that I find the focus ring a little too sensitive, but I might get used to it over time As far as bang for buck, it's hard to imagine why anyone would give it less than 5 stars, unless they got a bum QC specimen, or are unfairly comparing it to lenses 5x the price of this one.

Great little fully manual lens.Use on Sony a6500, set on Program setting. Gives realtime feedback on aperture and then focus with one finger.Recommend highly as carry around on smaller Sony's.

Very fun to play with this lens , I let my camera at A mode , you have to concentrate on focus and aperture but at the end I got wonderful pictures , some very sharp. This Lens will remember you the basics of aperture and speed, also it is very compact on a Sony a6500, very pleasing to go for a walk with just this lens on it. I would buy 7 artisans again.

This is a great lens!

This is a great lens! I use it on my a5100. I was looking for a brighter lens, not too heavy, not too wide, and not too expensive. This lens covers it all! You can take a bright picture in a really dim room at night time, looks like you took it during the daytime! It weight about the same from the kit lens. Unfortunately, I was not be able to use it on my trip because I was still practicing on manual focusing and needed fast auto focus lens. But it is really good when you got a time to focus or you are already used to use manual focus. I usually want boke in the picture so I don't care about vignetting but you will notice it if you take a full scenery picture. This is such a fun lens and makes me practice on manual focus more! Love this lens, thank you so much!
