7artisans Photoelectric 50mm f/1.8 overview

  • 1Description

A flexible optic for Micro Four Thirds-mount mirrorless cameras, the 50mm f/1.8 Lens from 7artisans is an especially compact portrait-length prime lens. Featuring a bright f/1.8 maximum aperture, this lens strikes an ideal balance between portability and speed to make it well-suited for everyday shooting. Complementing image quality, a multi-layer coating has been applied to reduce ghosting and flare in order to realized greater contrast and color fidelity, especially when working in harsh lighting and backlit conditions. The manual focus design permits working with subjects as close as 1.6' away and its 12-blade diaphragm produces a smooth, rounded bokeh quality.

Portrait-length prime is designed for Micro Four Thirds mirrorless cameras and offers a 100mm equivalent focal length.
Bright f/1.8 maximum aperture benefits working with shallow depth of field and selective focus techniques, and also suits photographing in low-light conditions.
Multi-layer coating has been applied to individual elements and reduces flare and ghosting in order to produce greater contrast and color accuracy when working in strong lighting conditions.
Manual focus design permits working with subjects as close as 1.6'.
Depth of field and distance scales aid pre-focusing and zone focusing techniques.
Rounded 12-blade diaphragm contributes to a pleasing bokeh quality.

    7artisans Photoelectric 50mm f/1.8 reviews

    50mm f/1.8 Lens for Micro Four Thirds is rated 3.0 out of 5 by 2.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Surprise! Sharper than I thought. Like the speed of this lens. An Olympus or LUMIX//Leica Prime will beat it in sharpness but not on price. Buy one and play! I have and like their fish-eye for mft cameras.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from It's cheap! It's small for a 50mm! It's poorly calibrated! For $89, you get what you pay for. The good: It's a small very inexpensive 100mm equivalent lens for Micro Four Thirds cameras. The bad: It's poorly calibrated. Yukosteel explains the issue better than I can, but the back three elements are out of alignment (in both lenses that I got and the lens Yukosteel got); this results in it being less sharp when in focus, as well as, when out of focus, having the blur be off-center. I will include samples from both lenses I got; one lens is pretty badly misaligned with bokeh pointed to the top left; the other one is slightly mis-aligned with the bokeh pointing down. Now, it is possible to repair this by hand if you're the kind of person who doesn't mind opening up a lens multiple times until the calibration is just right. In my case, I think I will keep the one only slightly mis-aligned and exchange the other one, hopefully for one with better alignment.
