The owner of Leica M-Mount cameras has got a smile now because the new TTartisan 50mm F0.95 lens has been officially available to buy via the B&H store and also trending as the “Top Seller”. This is a 50mm lens with a very large aperture and relatively affordable for everyone.
The TTartisan 50mm F0.95 for Leica camera was introduced last month, as we already know it has the ability to take advantage of such a wide aperture allows not only to shoot in really rough light conditions but also to create special bokeh effects that can detach the subject from the background.
TTartisan, not to be confused with the most renowned 7Artisans, for the uninitiated is a Chinese company that has launched itself in the development of photographic lenses for Sony E-Mount and Leica M-mount offering well-made models at a decidedly cheap price, when compared to their native counterparts.
The new TTartisan 50mm F0.95 for Leica M-mount not only has the good price: the optical design integrates 11 elements in 8 groups (including 1 double-sided aspherical element, 1 ED glass with very low dispersion, 5 elements with high refraction and 1 large aspherical lens), the 14 diaphragm blades and guarantees a blurry effect, the aperture starts from f/0.95 and reaches f/16 while the manual focus is obtained from 70 cm away. The diameter of the filter is 67mm, it measures 74mm x 72mm and has a weight of 673 grams.

An interesting goal that could appeal to many, especially to portrait photography lovers. You can find a TTartisan 50mm F0.95 lens on the Bhphotovideo.com website at a competitive price of $755. For those of you who are thinking at this exact moment that it is not so cheap, just know that the native lens for this graft is the Leica Noctilux M 50mm F0.95, with a list price of about 10 times more.
