A refined wide-angle prime, the 28mm f/1.4 from 7artisans Photoelectric offers both a flexible field of view along with a fast design. The bright f/1.4 maximum aperture offers increased control over depth of field and also suits working in difficult lighting conditions. Complementing this is an advanced optical design that includes aspherical, high refractive index, and extra-low dispersion glass elements to control a variety of aberrations for increased sharpness, clarity, and color accuracy. A multi-layer coating also contributes to reducing flare and ghosting for improved contrast when working in bright and backlit situations. Balancing the optical merits, this lens's manual focusing design affords a 2.3' minimum focusing distance and a 13-blade diaphragm contributes to a pleasing bokeh quality.

7artisans Photoelectric 28mm f/1.4 Reviews
Great lens for the price.
Great 28mm 1.4. Built great optics are very good for the price.
Unbelievable for the price
Great quality lens. Needed no focus adjustment. Amazing low light photos. You see a portion of the lens in the finder but not enough to create a problem. I use it on my Leica M8 renewed my interest in shooting.

What a surprise.
This lens is for anyone looking for a slightly wider view and it didnt disappoint. Its also a piece of mind that you can abuse this lens and feel like you have to protect it with your life at every corner. Heres my quick point: Pros: -robust build quality -price point -great contrast with black and white -leica like appearance -excellent bokeh -short focus throw cons: -sticks out -heavy -missing f11 (no click) -soft corners at f1.4-f2 -some flaring (hood must purchase seperately)
Optics Good, Build Quality need improvement
The lens is very sharp wide open. The corner sharpness is good after f2.8. The only drawback is the weight, a little unbalance on the m body. 7artisans need a polished lens mount. The lens mount is so sharp that may damage your camera mount and rangefinder system. PS: BH shipping is not well packaged, the box was dented after I receive.
Excellent, fast, wide - but heavy
Excellent quality - havent subjected it to laboratory testing, but it does what it says on the label. Only objection is that its quite heavy - about as heavy as the leica elmarit-m 135mm f/2.8.
Bang for the buck!
Quality lens at an affordable price. Would recommend. 28mm has become the new 35mm for many applications in the Leica M system.
Good for its price, big, heavy, and false 1.4
The lens is sharp for its price (not as sharp as the CV 35 1.7), really well built, renders fairly creamy bokeh. The biggest issue is that this lens is not a true 1.4, when I measured the light, it is more of a f1.7, the lens is very heavy and big. Since 1.7 is more of a summicron than a summilux, this sounds a lot less impressive. I feel slightly offended when manufacturers falsely claim the aperture size.
