TTArtisan has announced a new 50mm F1.2 manual lens for APS-C sensor cameras: Sony E, Canon EOS M, Fuji X, and Micro Four Thirds systems.
The design of the new 50mm lens has 7 elements in 5 groups and a 10-blade diaphragm. The minimum focusing distance is 0.5 m, and the diameter for the filters is 52 mm. The lens weighs around 336 g, its dimensions are Ø62 x 60 mm.
The equivalent focus length of a full-frame is about 75mm, the perfect assistant for Portrait photography. The large aperture of F1.2 gets rid of a cluttered background and highlights the subject. Smooth bokeh enhances image quality, and the larger aperture lowers the sharpness. F1.2 is a good balance between the pursuit of a large aperture and image quality.
