TTArtisan 50mm f/1.4 Reviews

Bargain!

This lens performs brilliantly for the price! Works well for low-light photography. I'm very happy with the image quality even with the aperture wide open. Both attached images were shot with Nikon Z6 ii at f/1.4, ISO 800. The farther away was 1/160s and the close-up 1/50s.

This TTartisan lens is as good as any of my famous brands

I bought this to use on a Leica SL and was immediately impressed by its optical performance. The focusing ring and aperture ring are both smooth as silk, with just the right amount of resistance. For the price the lens is a screaming bargain. Waiting for them to make a 35mm version in the L mount. I'll get that too.

Very nice image quality but heavy as a brick for my taste

Sharp images. Nice colors and rendering. Feels solid... But what a surprise how I find this small lens heavy! For me it cannot be a street photography lens, I need a tripod or at least a monopod to support it. So four stars for the overall quality, including image quality One missing star for the weight.

Fully Manual, Low Cost, and Plenty Sharp

This lens (the L-mount version) seems plenty sharp at F8, although it slightly softens at the left and right edges. I saw no evidence of decentering during a couple weeks of almost daily use. Also I saw little or no evidence of chromatic aberration at F8. It's a little bit glowy at F1.4 but this goes away by F2.8. My TTArtisan 50mm F1.4 L-mount Lens is well built and fits tightly on my Sigma fp L but not super-tight (tighter than my Sigma lens but not so tight that I'm worried about it). Front lens cover is machined aluminum and quite nice but easily lost, so I put it back in the box (a very nice box!) for safekeeping. According to the box, the lens weighs 436 grams (almost a pound). It is about 54mm in diameter (2 1/8) and about 68mm long (2.7) when mounted on the camera. Aperture ring has click-stops (yay!). The aperture ring and focus ring operate smoothly and are well damped, although the focus ring seems to have a slightly tighter spot midway (not much tighter though, and I did not notice it for several days). The lens does not move around in the helicoid, indicating that the focus helicoid is well-made and close-tolerance. I'm using a 49mm pinch-type front cap (Sigma LCF-49 III). My Sensei Pro LHM-49 threaded metal lens hood ($8.29 and 3/4 deep) does not cause vignetting and it takes a 58mm front cap so I can leave it on the lens. I am also using a 49mm Hoya EVO clear protector filter ($42) on the front of this lens at all times. It's worth spending money on a high quality protector, so that the image quality potential of the lens is not compromised. Bottom line is that this lens delivers great images with plenty of sharpness for an amazingly low price.
