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.

Excellent Value

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!

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.

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!!!

With a cropped sensor, I am able to get a very wide framing for a wide shot of board rooms.

question

Does lens come with filter adapter? It does not have actual threading on the lens itself.
Asked by: Joel C.
In time, photographers learn to expect difficulty in filtering and shading wide angle lenses. This has to do with the lens being so wide that regular filter rings or hoods becoming visible in the image. You are in luck here for this lens is listed as taking 77mm filters on the front.

question

Can this lens accept filters, and if so, what size. B&H says it accepts 77mm filters, but manufacturer does not specify any filter size for it. So which claim is true?
Asked by: Kenneth
This cool lens, in order to take filters, needs this adapter: 7artisans Photoelectric Lens Filter Adapter (Black) B&H # 7A1277LFA MFR # 7A1277LFA. Note: Special Order Expected availability: 2-4 weeks. I have alerted the Web department to the error. We apologize for any confusion and inconvenience.

Why does it say 12mm when its actually 18mm?

Why does it say 12mm when its actually 18mm?
Asked by: Katy
Lenses are always listed by the focal length of the lens itself. This is a 12mm lens designed for use on APS-C cameras, which means after the crop factor it will give you an 18mm look. All lenses are listed in this way and crop factor needs to be taken in to account afterwards.
