This is the best all around manual 50mm lens I’ve tested in the native Fujifilm mount so far.
Here are my thoughts, I have no brand loyalty, you will probably disagree with me on some points, but I’m loaded up on coffee right now so here we go!
Last night was the local summer festival. Nothing really special about the festival, just imagine (for all you Mericans) a redneck BBQ where there is line dancing, BBQ, cotton candy and kids running around way to high on sugar, yeah, it’s just the Japanese version of that.
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.
