The 7Artisans 12mm f2.8 II is a highly anticipated addition to the 7Artisans lens lineup. As an all-manual lens, it is perfect for landscape, architectural, and astrophotography enthusiasts.
7Artisans 12mm f2.8 Mark II is compatible with Canon RF, Canon EF-M, Fujifilm X, Micro Four Thirds, Nikon Z, and Sony E mount cameras. It is an upgrade from a previous version that was originally announced back in 2017.
7Artisans 12mm f2.8 II also boasts a fast maximum aperture of f2.8. This allows photographers to capture images with shallow depth of field and create beautiful bokeh in their images. It is also helpful for low-light situations, as it allows more light to reach the camera’s sensor and allows for faster shutter speeds.
The lens has 12 elements in 10 groups and a 5-blade aperture. it has a 100-degree viewing angle and weighs 301g (Sony version). Its manual focus design is complemented by both depths of field and distance scales for utilizing pre-focusing and zone-focusing techniques. Additionally, the lens permits working with subjects as close as 7.9″ away.
