The following opinions have been automatically translated with Google Translate.
Pros:Cheap, good sharpness, easy manual focus, continuous diaphragm, impression of robustness
Cons:In the backlight needs attention
Opinion:A very economical lens that amazed me by sharpness, distortion correction, ease of focus and diaphragm. Chromatically a little cold, but it's not a problem. Backlight to be careful, with some parasitic reflex in evidence. It provides an idea of robustness and pleasantness, built of metal. Quite compact and quick to use. The metric scale is convenient, despite the large pdc of the focal. I use it on fuji and I'm quite satisfied with it
Pros:Excellent resistance to flare, visual, field angle
Cons:No species at this price.
Opinion:I'll leave you the link where you find the review I did and photos especially those in the light. Sounds perfect on all aspects to me. Considering the almost trivial cost of the lens, considering the weight that has almost derisory, considering the big opening and I reiterate again The cost I can not find defects in this lens as I can not find it in the 55 f 1.4 that I took as well. https://youtu.be/mHVTCzYQnJM
Opinion:Bought to flank the two zoom fuji 18-55 It is 50-230., used with an x-t10 found at 100 euros and taken to have a greater angle for landscapes. I have to say that I find it great and better than the canon 10-18 Which was less sharp (I had a canon 60d and also a 5d kit given away because in the end for the weight I carried in the mountains only the olympus stylus 1, however valid) but returning to the 12 7artisans used both for photos up close that for panoramas I found a good sharpness except at all opening and little distortion however easy to correct in post production and in the backlight is not the best. In conclusion excellent optics with excellent yield with little spent
Opinion:Very well-kept and elegant packaging that at the opening shows what mechanically seems to be a jewel. Nice, really nice to see. The right, unsnapped diaphragms, heavy the right, compact, all metal. If it was also usable to make beautiful photos would be perfect:-) Unfortunately my specimen was too little sharp at any aperture, or maybe it made it better to TA than closing the aperture until it is almost useless to F11/F16. I have specified "my specimen" because I see photos made by others with the same lens model and that are definitely beautiful, which makes me hope that there has been either a problem with my specimen or that quality controls (which affect much on the final cost) are Q Antisticking less approximative. Returned after three photographic sessions in which I managed to get no more than three or four decent shots on which they still had to intervene heavily in PP. Too bad because aesthetically it's really nice... But I took in his place a Sammy 12mm F2, also full manual, which is quite another thing. My advice? Buy it only if the seller assures you to accept the return without too much trouble.
Pros:Price, compactness, general image rendering, well contained distortion, solid construction
Cons:Flares, ghosts/all that exists in backlight, aperture Ring without shutter (for traditional photography), frontal bulb lens-no traditional screw filters.
Opinion:Really remarkable Lens for the price range. Equivalent to an 18 mm on FF (I compared the angle of view with the Nikon AFS 20 1.8 that I own, mounted on the D800, and the 20 Nikon is narrower in a visible way). The distortion is very well controlled. Used on Fuji is a portento, especially indoors or in all situations where the sun is not in the frame. To avoid the use in backlight because it does not stand the direct sun and projects a little ' everywhere halos, phantom images, flares and all the repertoire of aberrations that there may be (but who knows, maybe someone will also find a creative use without jokes). Moreover, the situation gets worse if we get out because the aberrations become even more visible. The image decays at the extreme edges and there is a fair amount of vignetting, but for my uses the whole thing is more than acceptable. Good color yield, used on XT1 not known particular deviances to be corrected in pp. It is clear already at full aperture, for those who ask, it solves abundantly all 16 mpx of the aforementioned XT1; I haven't tested it on the 24/26 mpx of newer machines. In Fuji, same focal and as fixed lens, the alternatives are not many, I think only the Samyang 12 mm and the Zeiss 12 mm (but it is also autofocus). For me it's all about price.... Who wants to spend really little and have a decent lens must run to buy it. If you are looking for absolute quality, you may find the most suitable Zeiss offer, especially if you are shooting against the light.
