7artisans Photoelectric 50mm f/1.1 Overview

Mixing a normal field of view with an exceptionally fast maximum aperture, the black 50mm f/1.1 from 7artisans Photoelectric is a versatile prime designed for M-mount rangefinder cameras. Distinguished by its bright f/1.1 design, this lens excels in low-light conditions and also affords extensive control over depth of field for isolating subjects and using selective focus techniques. A rounded 12-blade diaphragm also contributes to shallow depth of field work by producing a smooth, rounded bokeh quality.

The lens features a Sonnar-type optical design with 7 elements in 6 groups, and individual elements feature a multi-layer coating to help reduce reflections and ghosting for greater contrast and color accuracy. Additionally, the lens has an all-manual design, and focusing operation is benefitted by engraved depth of field and focusing scales.

Normal-length 50mm prime designed for full-frame and 35mm Leica M-mount rangefinder cameras.
Notably fast f/1.1 maximum aperture affords extensive control over depth of field and also benefits working in low-light conditions.
Sonnar-type optical design delivers a high degree of sharpness throughout the aperture range.
Individual elements feature a multi-layer coating to suppress flare and ghosting for greater contrast and color fidelity when working in strong lighting conditions.
Manual focus design permits working with subjects as close as 2.3' away.
Engraved focus distance and depth of field scales benefit working with pre-focus and hyperfocal focusing techniques.
Rounded 12-blade diaphragm contributes to a pleasing bokeh quality.

I wonder how well this lens would work on a Micro four thirds body using an appropriate adapter. It would be nice to have the speed plus the advantages of IBIS and focus peaking?
Asked by: peter
Actually, the responder who wrote “The crop factor for MFT...” doesn’t seem to understand photographic optics. The lens is a 50mm/1.1, period. It’s field of view on MFT is the equivalent of 100mm on full frame. But that doesn’t change the depth of field of the 50mm/1.1. But the 50mm will have the DOF of a 50mm, not a 100mm since the latter is not its focal length. If you “enlarge” the picture to the same degree as a 50mm picture would be, you’ll get a smaller print of a more restricted FOV. But the subject will be the same size and the DOF will be the same as a 50mm/1.1 lens. If you want the same FOV as the full frame 50 gives, you will have to move back to twice the original distance. I am the OP who asked the question. I wanted to know whether it would fit and focus accurately using the rangefinder’s cam. That goes to the quality of the adapter and also the precision and accuracy with which the cam is cut.

question

will this fit the Leica M4and M5? I understand this was an issue with earlier versions.
Asked by: sam a.
My sample interfered with the meter arm on my M5 (an early 2-lug model). There were slight variations over the course of production, as with most camera, but the combination would not work for me.

Has anyone used this as well as the Voigtlander Nokton 50mm f/1.1? Is the Voigtlander worth the extra $330?
Asked by: Suhair
If you are looking for a lens that is inexpensive and has lots of character, get the 7artisans. It is not sharp wide open but you may want that look. The Voigtlander is more a conventional lens in that is it sharp at all stops and can be expected to produce under all circumstances for considerably less than a Leica lens.
