An especially compact wide-angle prime, the Fujifilm X 12mm f/2.8 from 7artisans is an all-manual lens well-suited for landscape, interior, and architectural subjects requiring a broad field of view. The lens's f/2.8 maximum aperture benefits working in a variety of lighting conditions and also helps to maintain the small and lightweight form factor for handheld shooting. Multi-layer coatings have been applied to individual glass elements to suppress flare and ghosting for improved contrast and color fidelity when working in strong lighting conditions. Additionally, a seven-blade diaphragm produces a pleasing bokeh quality.

7artisans Photoelectric 12mm f/2.8 Reviews
A fun lens for both architectural and landscape photography.
A fun lens; much wider angle than a typical primary or zoom offers, without the pronounced distortion of a fisheye. Fully manual focus is not a problem given the deep depth of focus under most conditions. As for manual exposure, remember to set your digital camera body to release shutter w/o lens -- function C.FnIII:Operation/Other on my Canon EOS M6 Mark II.
This lens floored with me it's price-to-image quality ratio - paired with a Sony A6600 it is decently sharp and easy to focus, with a great old school build quality. Stopped down a bit it has wonderfully consistent performance, some flare issues are present which is not unusual for a very wide angle (I'm comparing to Canon's 11-24L here). I don't need a super wide angle veiw too often, but this lens is so much fun I find myself seeking out those shots. Lastly, the build is so compact I have no excuse not to keep it in the bag. Great purchase!
Best affordable wide lens
I film historical documentaries and found myself needing a wide angle lens to match the rest of my 7artisans lenses. This lens is my most used lens. It produces a nice, crisp, clear image. Far better than what you’d expect at the price.
Most used lens
I use blackmagic pocket cinema 4k’s and do historical documentary film for a living. This lens is my most used lens! I use a lot of wide angles on exterior and Interviews. I highly recommend this lens as it is a super sharp image. I sold my rokinon collection for this upgrade and saved me money!
Wonderful affordable lens
Need a lightweight, small wide angle lens occasionally? This is all you need. The price is awesome, but the results you get are great, too. See my pics, shot with an X-H1. Tips: -don't shoot wide open at f/2.8 unless you're in a dimly lit room and need that aperture -dial manual focus to infinity if the subject is as in my pics (far away) -pics look no different from the 8-16mm $1,900 lens if you're posting online
Fantastic camera lens!
I love 7artisans lenses! I’m building up the set for my pair of blackmagic pocket cinema 4k’s. I absolutely love the image for the price. I even sold some of my lumix lenses because I stopped using them once I bought 7artisans. I strongly recommend this lens.
Well made but!!!
Well made!.....cheap price!.....but!!!......A good vignetting on the sides!!!..... (a6400 sony).
Used on BM Micro Cinema 4k
With a cropped sensor, I am able to get a very wide framing for a wide shot of board rooms.
