Offering a uniquely wide angle of view, the TTArtisan 11mm f/2.8 is a fisheye lens designed for Leica M-mount rangefinder cameras. The expansive field of view and distinct fisheye look is characterized by immense depth of field along with strong distortion for creating very striking and dynamic imagery. The wide-angle design is also complemented by a bright f/2.8 maximum aperture, to suit working in available lighting conditions, and the lens's manual focus design permits working with subjects as close as 6.7" away.

TTArtisan 11mm f/2.8 Reviews
Built Like a Tank
Picked up this lens for some fun street photography shots. Unreal craftsmanship at a stupid low price. Win/win for fun wide shots.
Fun and creative
I can't speak to the technical aspects, just that it is easy to learn and use. I put my Lumix S5 in Aperture mode and manual focusing is a breeze. I know my much more expensive Lumix S PRO 24-70mm f/2.8 is a better quality lens with a whole lot more bells and whistles, but the lightweight of this 2.8 fisheye and its creative potential means it gets a good amount of time on my S5.
Very solid build. Focus and aperture ring operate smoothly. I bought this primarily for close up wildflower photography. Gets in close. Although I don't mind the fisheye distortion, when you crop in, images look pretty natural. Center is very sharp.
It's certainly not the sharpest lens in my kit, but it does shoot wider than anything else. It's cheap but doesn't feel cheap. I usually break out this lens to set the scene when shooting events. You have to be willing to accept the distortion going in.
Fun with a fisheye.
This is a fun lens to use. The image quality is very good! The mount on my lens tended to wobble slightly but it didn't effect the quality. I will only use this lens occasionally but I'm glad I have it for those rare photo opportunities.
Compact with Just right barrel distortion.
I have owned Sony FE 12-24G f4 wich is excellent for everything. However , I found I use it more often at 12mm for UWV effect. The size becomes an issue cause I need to carry other prime lenses. TTartisian relatively provides a sweet spot choice, compact, precise, close focus, with just right barrel distortion. 11mm is same wide as 12mm. Sony has much better coating but that's ok for TTartisan with such price tag.
Very impressed with the quality of this lens! Well built, sharp, easy to use, and affordable. Despite not having auto focus or any electronics on board, focus peaking works perfectly which makes focusing a breeze! If you're having reservations on this lens and want images that are outside of the box; look no further!
Love it \
