Meike 28mm f/2.8 Reviews

Reasonable lens for wide angle.

By Eduardo

This lens is a little snug on the Fujifilm body. Grainy at f8 but useable at f2 wide open. The aperture ring seems a little resisting as it does not have the click stop, so the ring retracts back as if there is a spring. Lens is very soft not as sharp as prime lenses. Overall. I like the size and the wide angle, good for street photography as it conceals.

Should have know better to buy this lens. Goes onto to camera very hard. Poorly machined and do not trust mounting it to my X-T3. Would not bother with this lens. Poor quality

Good lens thats very tight on the mount

This lens, albeit sharp and clean, has a mount that's very stiff and can get stuck on the camera. Being very small it can be hard to twist off, especially because of how tight the mount is on the camera.

good starter lens

A Surprisingly Good Lens at a Very Low Price

Having recently added a Fuji X-E3 to my Fuji camera collection (I also have an X-T1 and an X100), I was looking for a pancake prime lens in the “normal” focal length of 40-50 mm (full frame equivalent). Having grown up on fully manual 35 mm film cameras, I still enjoy an all metal, manual focus prime lens. On one of my Fuji discussion forums, a number of X-E3 owners highly recommended this lens. The price for this lens is less than I have spent for a quality UV filter for some of my expensive Fuji lenses, so it was a no-brainer purchase. I was pleasantly surprised to find the lens arrived in perfect condition, solid metal construction, internals clean, glass clean, focus and aperture rings rotate smoothly and it mounted to the camera body solidly. A much bigger surprise is the joy of use and image quality. My X-E3, with this lens, has a similar, but smaller form factor than my X100. It is far easier to focus than my two 7 Artisans manual lenses. Image quality is excellent, and although there is noticeable vignetting at f/2.8, I find it adds an artistic touch to my images. I’ve had experience with this focal length before (my first 35 mm film camera was a Canonet rangefinder with a 40 mm f/2.8 pancake prime) and I find the 42 mm full frame equivalent focal length to be far more useful as a general purpose lens than a 50mm, which I find just a tad too long for my style of photography. The image I chose to attach to this review is a SOOC JPEG test shot in Acros at 12,800 ISO and f/2.8. I love the way this lens renders and it has quickly become my favorite manual focus lens.

Good on-the-go lens

I recently got a Fujifilm X-T30, and wanted a good, small pancake lens. I started to look at the Fujifilm one, but didn’t really want to spend another $400 on another lens. I was looking around for some alternatives and found out about the Meike 27mm. I decided to try it out, and found out that it was a good lens for the price! It’s a bit soft on the edges, but I personally like that effect. I also used it to shoot a video project for school and it got the job done! Overall, good lens for the price.

I find it a bit awkward to use but the image quality is fine for my uses. It has two rings -- focus and aperture. Sometimes I find them set too close and the aperture ring gets moved by mistake. The aperture ring has no click stops. I use this on Olympus MFT cameras and the faux SLR viewfinder overhangs the lens and the aperture markings making it awkward to read the setting. It It is too tight a fit on one of my cameras and the aperture ring is very hard to turn so that I won't use it on that camera. It mounts well in the M10 and M1 cameras. Small and light but a bit slow in use for me for street use. .

Mmmm...ok

This lens is sharp at f8 and smaller; it's ok wide open but not great. The Meike 35mm f1.4 is much much better.
