Overall, the 7Artisans 55mm f1.4 is an incredible value and a fantastic starter portrait lens or compact prime.
Performance according to specs isn’t great, but the lens has some very beautiful character, especially wide open. So far, this is my favorite 7Artisans lens and it’s a lot of fun to use!
In this test, I compare the 7Artisans 55mm f1.4 to the KamLan 50mm f1.1. I also threw in a more expensive lens, the Rokinon 50mm f1.2, and the even more expensive Fujinon 56mm f1.2 as a control. Since Fujifilm is legend when it comes to lens design, it will be interesting to see how they compare.
It’s built of an all metal body with a declick aperture and an incredibly fast f0.95 aperture. The lens excels in low light conditions but also functions as a very beautiful art lens for incredible bokeh and shallow depth of field.
Performance is all around good for a lens this fast and it will perform well in most situations.
You might be wondering, who is Handevision? are Handevision lenses good? Is this Handevision IBERIT 75mm worth it?
When I first picked up the 7Artisans 35mm f2, I spent a few days shooting, walking maybe a total of probably 8-9 miles just shooting. After the first day before really reviewing the images, I just wasn’t really impressed and wanted to send it back. Then I got into Lightroom and man, I have to say, I’m liking it.
In the next coming weeks, I’m going to try and focus a little more on doing little sets of photos on what I can get while I’m in Japan. It’s not easy traveling with a two-year old, especially when it’s 20 degrees outside and they catch a cold. Lesson learned.
Here is a quick overview from a few weeks of using several of their lenses.
Today I wanted to do a very quick comparison between the colors of the Sony A7r III and the Fujifilm X-Pro 2.
As most know, Fujifilm is legendary at handling colors, but since nobody talks about camera colors, I thought this would make an interesting discussion.
