KamLan 55mm f/1.4 Lens Features
“The angle of view of the standard lens is close to the viewing angle seen with the naked eye, making it an easy-to-use lens for all purposes. The open F value is 1.4, which is extremely bright, and it is also useful for shooting indoors or in dimly lit places such as in the evening. In addition, it can be used for a wide range of expressions such as portraits with a greatly blurred background by taking advantage of the shallow depth of field. A circular aperture with 13 aperture blades is used, so you can enjoy the beautiful circular bokeh. The lens body is a highly durable and luxurious finish that incorporates eight lenses including high-refractive glass in an all-metal housing. The aperture ring is clickless, so please use it not only for still shooting but also for video shooting.”
