TTartisan has announced two new prime lenses, the 35mm F2 APO ASPH for the Leica M-mount and the TTartisan 50mm F2 for full-frame mirrorless cameras.
TTartisan 50mm F2
This is a lightweight and inexpensive manual pancake lens for Canon RF, Canon EOS M, Fujifilm X, Nikon Z, Sony E, MFT, and L-mount. The optical design of the lens consists of 6 elements in 5 groups, including two high refractive index HR elements. 10-blade aperture, 50cm minimum focusing distance, 43mm filter thread. Aperture range F2 – F16, angle of view 45° for full frame, and 32° for APS-C.
The lens, of course, is manual, there are aperture and focus rings with distance marks. It is impossible to make the same design for all mounts, so the models differ slightly in size. The MFT and L-mount version are 60mm in diameter, 35mm long, and weighs 190g. The Canon RF, EOS M, Fujifilm X, Nikon Z, and Sony E versions are slightly larger and heavier, around 212g depending on the mount.
The focal length on cameras with an APS-C sensor will be approximately 75 mm, for MFT – 100 mm in full-frame equivalent.
