Pleased with purchase

I purchased this lens for my astrophotography. With the wider aperture I am capturing more stars and I live in the suburbs of Washington DC, lots of light pollution to contend with. I have been using this lens for more general photos and I am very pleased with the results. I am sure this will make a good lens for others that are new to astrophotography or photography in general. I would recommend this lens for anyone looking for a good starter lens for general star pics. Lee G.

amazing lens for a very modest price

I'll start with the fact that manual lenses currently exist for those who like to focus manually. Saving money it's from another book, however...))) Before buying a manual lens, it is advisable to try manual focusing (in a store or if friends have one) and see if you need it? ... You should also be careful with ultra-fast lenses, they require more attention and accuracy. Difficulties with focusing a manual lens are mainly a problem of the person and not the lens. I consider this lens just as a gift for lovers of manual ultra fast lenses. It's small but hefty, has smooth focusing, beautiful rendering, nice rich colors and very attractive bokeh. And in addition to that , you can try it full frame camera and it will almost cover the frame . I would highly recommend this lens for those who clearly understand what manual optics are and how to use them.

Build quality and image quality at a good price

I purchased this lens to have a fast 50mm lens for my Nikon Zfc. Since focusing is manual, I decided to also use manual exposure settings. It ended up being a delight. By using 'Focus Peaking' and setting the shutter speed to my choice, I was able to turn the aperture setting ring on the front of the lens and watch the image appear just as I wanted in the viewfinder. Such previsualization is a joy. I am pleased with the lens.

Impressed With Lens

The main reason I bought this lens was to get a fast 50mm lens. It is that! But it also seems to be of fine quality and is fun to use, taking me back to my film days. However, I am using it with my Nikon Z6 and Zfc, both of which have focus peaking. This makes it possible for me to still get accurate focus with these old eyes.

Beautiful Bokeh

The TT Artisan 50mm f/1.2 Lens is very well built and has surprisingly sharp glass. The soft backgrounds you can create work beautifully for portraits, flowers and a variety of other subject matter. It's a bargain bokeh workhorse. You have to be very careful with focusing at the wider apertures as the depth of field literally is measured in inches. Stopping the lens down produces very fine detail and it appears sharp from edge to edge. The only con of this lens is that you often have to avoid high contrast and backlit subjects or you risk a lot of nasty chromatic aberration that software will be hard pressed to eliminate. Other than that caveat, this is a fun lens to use and one that, if carefully used, can produce lovely results.

Manual focus is rather good. Focusing is smooth. The lens itself very heavy... Could be useful for still and portrait photos.

I PURCHASED THIS LENS AND IT came defective. It doesn't get out of f00 and makes it impossible to take pictures. I'm from another country and I don't know what to do. I lost money

An excellent lens for the price

The possibility of getting extraordinary blur for so little money never seemed possible to me. Okay, it's a manual lens, but my a6400's focus assist works fine, and if the subject isn't moving, the photographer will soon become familiar with manual focus. Most of the time, the lack of sharpness at the edges doesn't bother you. There is also chromatic aberration in images with high contrast, but as I said, the price is unmissable for the result obtained in most images.

I just received this with a M4/3 mount. When I put it on my OM-D E-M1 II, I see nothing - looks the same with lens cap off as on. This was listed as compatible for my camera. Tried it at all aperture. My camera did detect that is a MF lens. What more do I need to do Or just return it?
Asked by: Deborah
Thanks for the answer - good to know about the tight fit and tricky connection. However, Ive already returned the lens because of the weight of the lens. Too heavy for a small prime. Along with an Uber touchy connection, it doesnt meet my needs.

The Sigma fp is a full-frame camera but this lens is a L-mount APS-C/Super35 lens. It will fit but you might have to shoot in Super35.
