This could be the secret gem we’ve been waiting for.
The lens is weather-sealed, has a silent stepping motor focusing system with very little focus breathing. It’s very well corrected, incredibly sharp with a very manageable size and weight.
Optically it’s just a decent lens, but Meike lenses are more known for their classic rendering with a bit more character.
This lens features a 12 blade aperture for smooth bokeh even at slower apertures, a 6 element optical formula for that smoother tonal depth and better micro-contrast, and an all-metal construction for long term reliability.
It’s well suited for photographers looking for a decent lens that is capable of handling just about any situation and don’t want to spend a ton of cash.
The size, weight and performance of the RF 35mm f1.8 makes it one of the most versatile and capable prime lenses out there and it’s also the best value when you compare it to all the full frame mirrorless 35mm lenses available today.
Canon has really stepped up their game with their non-L lenses and it really shows here.
Each lens is catered for different environments and different styles of shooting and one lens isn’t necessarily better than the other because they each provide a different set of features. In this comparison, I’ll go over the pros and cons of each lens to help you decide which lens is best for your style of shooting.
To sum it up, the 35mm f2 is really more of a casual, adventure lens while the 35mm f1.4 is more of a pro portrait lens.
SLR Magic started making some pretty interesting anamorphic adapter and cinema lenses and it just made sense to go down that route. The Anamorphot-50 for full frame, and the Anamorphot-40 for APS-C and even the Anamorphot-40 compact are all modern designs that work very well if you can pair them with the right lens.
This is my first impressions / review of the Anamorphot-40 1.33x with sample photo showing how I’ve used it for photography.
It’s suited for photographers who need a fast autofocusing compact lens that still capable of producing outstanding image quality.
Walking around, shooting landscape photography, travel photography, HDR or events, you can use this lens in just about any situation. Build quality is really nice, color contrast, sharpness is very good and there are no serious flaws other than some minor chromatic aberrations in the corners and some distortion. It’s the perfect high end kit lens.
