TTArtisan launches 50mm F2 and 35mm F2 manual focus lenses

July 15, 2022

TTArtisan has announced its latest prime, manual focus lenses – a budget full-frame 50mm F2 lens for mirrorless cameras and an APO-M 35mm F2 ASPH. for Leica M-mount.

The TTArtisan 50mm F2 lens is initially being launched in Fuji X, Nikon Z, Sony E and Micro Four Thirds mounts at the budget price of £79.

It will later become available in Canon RF, Canon EOS M and Leica L mounts.

Depending on the lens mount version the compact 50mm lens measures between 34mm to 38mm from the mount to the end of the lens and weighs between 191g and 212g.

The lens has a bright maximum aperture of f/2 and a 10-blade diaphragm to help achieve smooth bokeh.

Its optical construction features six elements in five groups with two High-Refractive Index elements help to control spherical aberrations.

It has a close focusing distance of 50cm and has a 43mm front filter thread.

When the 50mm is used on an APS-C camera body it has a field of view equivalent to approximately a 75mm lens.

On an MFT camera body it will have an equivalent focal length of around 100mm.
