    Mitakon Zhongyi 20mm f/2.0 reviews

    20mm f/2 4.5x Super Macro Lens for Fujifilm X is rated 3.5 out of 5 by 2.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Niche Super Macro lens The good: - Very close focusing, this lens gets closeup pictures like nothing else out there. Unique perspective. - Lens build and function feels very solid. - Great price for what you get (I think). The not so good: - No focusing to infinity, just 2cm in front of the lens. Finding your subject and getting close to it can be a challenge. - Tripod and remote may help in some scenarios. **Patience required** - You will see every speck of dust on the lens. - A light is practically needed, even when isolating your subject wide open. - After isolating my subject I have to stop down the aperture all the way to get DOF. - Optical quality can sometimes be meh. The Bad: - 3-bladed aperture makes bokeh look lame/weird. Knocked off a star for this.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from An interesting adventure at a modest price First of all, I think it is important to recognize that the is a very inexpensive lens and, as with all things, you get what you pay for. If you are considering this lens, you need to have reasonable and realistic expectations because it will not be like your Fuji XF (or even XC) lenses. That said, this is an interesting lens to play with if you are interested in extreme macro photography and the build is respectable for the price with all metal barrel construction and decent finishes. Using this lens is like connecting your camera to a microscope. Your field of view is perhaps 1/8 to 1/4 square and your depth field, even at f16 is negligible. If you were just going to use this lens for industrial purposes, it would be very useful for recording tiny details on the surfaces of inanimate objects. The challenge is in microphotography of the living world in situ. You absolutely need to be mounted on a tripod to maintain adequate steadiness because you will be shooting at relatively low shutter speeds (you may need to invert your tripod head and mount it to the bottom of your tripod's column to get close to your subjects). If your subject is moving even slightly (light breezes are an huge issue with plants), it will be very difficult to make blur-free shots. Ideally, you want your subject to be illuminated by direct sunlight (from an angle that you can avoid positioning yourself in) and unmoving. Proximity to the subject is critical with distances beyond 3/4 being infeasible and tiny adjustments of camera position (nudging) are often needed to obtain a focused image. I had a quality issue with the first lens I ordered (dirt on internal lens elements) and had to return it (B&H were great with the return). The replacement is marginally okay (a couple of tiny splashes of something on internal lens elements but inconspicuous in images). You get what you pay for (and then some) with this lens.
