Pergear has introduced its latest offering to the photography world: the 60mm f2.8 II manual focus lens, designed for full-frame mirrorless cameras. The lens boasts compatibility with a range of mounts, including Fujifilm X, Micro Four Thirds, Canon RF, Nikon Z, Sony E, and L-mount.
This lens comes equipped with a host of advantages. Notably, it offers a maximum magnification of 2x, allowing photographers to capture intricate details with impressive clarity. A unique feature is the aperture control ring that rotates seamlessly without clicks, a characteristic that caters to the demands of video shooting. Moreover, the lens incorporates three high refractive index elements within its optical architecture. This strategic inclusion serves to minimize spherical aberration and distortion, further elevating image quality.
The optical system within the lens comprises 11 elements organized into 8 groups, effectively delivering remarkable image fidelity and precise color rendition. By integrating three high refractive index elements, the lens effectively controls spherical aberrations and mitigates distortion, resulting in images of exceptional sharpness and authenticity. Contributing to the lens’s aesthetic allure is its 10-blade aperture, which contributes to a smooth and visually pleasing bokeh quality.
To enhance overall performance, each element of the lens is treated with a multi-layer coating that diminishes instances of flare and ghosting, thereby enhancing contrast and clarity. One of the most intriguing features of this lens is its de-clicked aperture ring, which offers a seamless and noiseless rotation throughout the aperture range. This particular attribute makes it an ideal choice for close-range video applications and photographic scenarios.
