7artisans Photoelectric 25mm f/1.8 overview

  • 1Description

Compact and versatile, the Sony E-mount 25mm f/1.8 from 7artisans is an all-manual lens well-suited for portraiture, reportage, and everyday shooting requiring a natural field of view. The bright f/1.8 maximum aperture benefits working in a variety of lighting conditions and also offers greater control over depth of field for isolating subjects with selective focus. 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 rounded 12-blade diaphragm produces a pleasing bokeh quality.

Compact prime is designed for APS-C-format Sony E-mount mirrorless cameras and provides a 37.5mm equivalent focal length.
Bright f/1.8 maximum aperture benefits working in difficult lighting conditions and also offers improved control over depth of field for selective focus applications.
Multi-layer coating has been applied to individual elements to reduce flare and ghosting for greater contrast and color accuracy.
Manual focus design permits working with subjects as close as 7.1" away.
Rounded 12-blade diaphragm contributes to a smooth and pleasing bokeh quality.

    7artisans Photoelectric 25mm f/1.8 reviews

    25mm f/1.8 Lens for Sony E (Black) is rated 3.3 out of 5 by 3.
    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not bad, but not particularly good. Conclusion: This is a very fun lens to have and the experience of using it is generally better than the product of its use. Though images aren't terrible, they're definitely not meant for traditional high quality printing. Pros: - Bokeh is clean, smooth. - Surprisingly sharp. Considerably sharper than I expected at this price. Especially in the middle. Edges aren't bad at all and corners are have significant drop-off as expected, but it's rather impressive on the whole. - Fun. I love manual focus prime lenses. The experience knocks it out of the park for me. - 25mm ( ~37mm on my a6500) is an excellent focal range for me. - Instagram Good = "Edit" your photos and down-res them to 1080x1080 and you'll find they look pretty comparable to images from better lenses. Cons: - Very, very short focus throw. Especially wide open, it's difficult to absolutely nail the focus when a millimeter of turn pushes the focus multiple meters front or back. - Something's just a little off about the color/contrast. It's hardly noticeable in still images, but I can pretty obviously see issues in video. - Flaring and color fringing are pretty bad. On par with expectations, but expectations were already quite low. - Clickless Aperture is pretty easy to accidentally shift. Even though I do more video than stills, I would rather have it clicked. - Print Bad = Definitely not for high scrutiny use. Final Word: Properly comparing this lens to other lenses is like comparing 30fps to 60fps. If you saw 30fps videos and nothing else, you would think 30fps is perfectly smooth and fine. But once you see 60fps and then see 30fps, it looks choppy and less appealing. In isolation this lens is pretty good, but when compared to expensive lenses, you can definitely see the difference.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Pleasantly surprised! I quite enjoy using this lens. The image quality is way above what I expected at the price point. It vignettes but I like the effect. All in all a good purchase.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Inaccurate aperture markings For the person who listens to vinyl records, wears a Swiss mechanical watch, likes to take steam powered tourist trains, and drives a car with a stick shift, this could be the perfect lens for the analog future. No electrical contacts, no power drain, totally manual control of aperture and focus distance. However, if you want to go further into the analog world and use an external exposure meter, this is NOT the lens for you. The aperture markings overstate the true aperture by 1-1/2 to 2 f stops. I know because I compared the shutter speed selected by my Sony A6000 to that which would be expected by the reciprocal of the shutter speed rule (correct exposure in normal daylight at 1/shutter speed, f16, and ISO 100). I also compared the shutter speeds indicated with this lens to the shutter speeds indicated with my Samsung manual focus lens at the same focal length, f stop and ISO. Both tests indicate the aperture is mis-marked by the amount stated above. Thus this lens is usable ONLY with TTL metering, and will overexposed if you set the aperture based on an external meter or based on your experience with correctly marked lens.
