7Artisans 50mm f/1.8 lens announced for mirrorless system cameras. The new APS-c portrait-length prime mirrorless lens will be available for Sony E, Canon EF-M, Fuji X and Micro Four Thirds mounts. 7Artisans 50mm f/1.8 lens is priced at $89 and is currenbtly in stock at Adorama and B&H.
Portrait-length manual focus prime lens is designed for mirrorless cameras and provides a 12mm equivalent focal length for APS-c and 15mm for MFT mounts.
Featuring a bright f/1.8 maximum aperture, this lens strikes an ideal balance between portability and speed to make it well-suited for everyday shooting. Complementing image quality, a multi-layer coating has been applied to reduce ghosting and flare in order to realized greater contrast and color fidelity, especially when working in harsh lighting and backlit conditions. The manual focus design permits working with subjects as close as 1.6′ away and its 12-blade diaphragm produces a smooth, rounded bokeh quality.
