Offering a uniquely wide angle of view, the TTArtisan 11mm f/2.8 is a fisheye lens designed for Sony E-mount mirrorless 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
Great Len for shooting milky way!
Specialized lens for day time & ridiculously sharp!
I've always wanted a fisheye lens for that unique look in certain situations, especially with animals. I tried this with astrophotography but I personally do not recommend it for that purpose. While I didn't use a star tracker, the stars have heavy coma and outside of the distortion, this focal length is just not clear enough for good output. It's not horrible but you're better off with quality 24mm on full frame using a star tracker. And this was a Bortle 2 location at 30 seconds so it was fairly dark enough to shoot at full 30 seconds at ISO 4000. With that said, for the price, it's built like a tank! Solid but smooth aperture ring and manual focus ring. It makes the camera lighter if not feel more balanced with the short length. On my Canon EOS R, I used the focus peaking in different colors depending on the subject and works well. Now, for moving animals, it's very difficult while our cat in the photo was very still and can see the peak shading around the eyes and was able to get some sharp images. When the focus is spot-on, the images are ridiculous sharp. I was expecting it to be soft but otherwise, it's a very sharp lens. The only downside with using the focus peaking is in the dark; it's almost unusable so you'll have to make sure the subject is lit at least well to get an idea how it's focusing. But it's a fun lens! While Lightroom doesn't have the profile for this lens, I used Canon's 8-15mm fisheye profile and adjusted the distortion for the cat's photo to make it not as fisheye but still maintain that 'big head' effect.
A cheap lens that works well in the right conditions
I bought this on a whim, looking for added creativity in my lens kit. The lens works as described and I'm very happy with the cost outlay and the images I'm creating. It's manual and very hard to focus by hand. I generally leave it at f/8 and play with the focus ring slightly depending on how close I plan to get to the subject (the infinity measure just slightly before or after the f8 marking on the lens barrel). As a result, I use higher ISO than normal for me. Images end up with more grain. Images lit with off-camera flash look great! The image quality and color rendering remind me of my DJI Mavic Air 2 images - passable to horrible in poor light. So it's best to get things as well lit in-camera as possible. I've been playing around with how best to use the lens, where to situate subjects, etc and finding my legs with it. I mostly shoot weddings, mitzvahs and events so I consider this a fun lens to use when I have everything I need and am looking to experiment a bit - and I'm currently tired of shutter drag. I would love to try tilt-shift lenses, but they are much more expensive. If I don't like the fisheye approach on a particular shot, using the Samyang 7.5mm fisheye lens profile in Lightroom does a great job converting to rectilinear.
This is my current favorite lens. I have enjoyed it for both close ups and landscapes. I have been able to figure out correction for the distortion, but would love a lens profile for it.
Purchased this for my BMPCC 6K Pro, needing a quick and affordable solution for a wide angle for video. This is a photography lens, and not the cine glass that would have been ideal, but budget did not permit to consider anything above this price. That being said - I am very pleased with how it has worked so far - I expected an unforgivable amount of distortion and have been surprised by the final image after processing on Davinci. In terms of value, and the category - 5 stars.
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.
I like it
It’s a fun little lens. Fun for closeups still life.
Just tried the lens
Camera used Sony a 74IV. After I took the pic I used the plus button the get a close up view of the pic. The pic was clear with good detail. I think the camera used is important because cameras have different capabilities and that can affect the quality of the pic. Great lens Ben
