About this deal

It has a silver ring at the front which makes the style even more fitted with the whole vintage look that Fujifilm cameras roll with. Fuji's 23mm gets affected by diffraction around f/11, but I wasn't able to see if the 7artisans was better on that regard as there is no f/11 markings on the aperture ring (goes from f/8 straight to f/16.

Yes, you save money compared to, say, the Fujifilm 23mm f2 lens, but the quality of Fuji’s lenses is as good as it gets for this type of glass. Although you can do multiple exposure panorama with a typical wide angle lens, stitching might have an issue in post processing stage. is a new lens that looks and feels vintage (maybe early-1980’s-ish), and produces results that have a vintage quality. Full Metal Lens Design】: 7artisans lens uses aviation-grade materials to create a surface anodized process, which is beautiful and durable. Of course when I shot film and used full-manual gear, there wasn’t any magnification, or much of anything to tell you if you had focused correctly (just that circle in the middle).

does not come with a hood but with a lens so nicely compact, I’m not sure if I would even use the hood that much. I just haven’t posted anything from it yet, and when see my first SL related review, I think you will see why. But recently, I have been experimenting with my style of photography and the genre that I really enjoy is documentary photography.

It’s only if you’re shooting a white wall where you’ll notice it more, and really, how many of us are going to be shooting white walls all the time ;)?

But this lens is essentially unusable at open apertures, meaning that to get good colors and even lighting you need to be at f11 or 16; it’s not worth having a lens that limited.Plus, there’s nothing loose here or anything that would make me feel like it’ll fall apart anytime soon.

Whether you love Fujifilm's X-Trans mirrorless cameras, GFX medium format cameras, their other digital cameras and DSLRs, or Instax instant film cameras - this is the place for you!

I personally think that affordable, even if slightly less-than-perfect, lenses enable photographers to try a wide range of lens lengths. Considering the interior of my lens was a speckled mess, it is likely no quality control, which means a lot of really crap lenses get sent out. I wanted to try one of these cheap manual-focus lenses, made in China, because I’d heard good things about them.

Made mostly in metal, the lenses are solidly built that have that bit of heft without feeling heavy in practical use. If you’re looking for absolute perfection in terms of optics, you may want to consider something else but keep in mind you’ll be paying a lot more.
