TTArtisan 28mm f/5.6 Reviews

Fantastic, compact and affordable

This lens is a great option for a walk-around lens during the day. Used it on my 35mm rangefinder and got really nice results. It's compact and basically turns your camera into a point and shoot when the light is good!

Stunning

I've had this lens for four days and I love it. When lenses are said to produce a vintage look this lens is what it's all about. Beautiful soft contrast and tonal values. I feel as though I have travelled back in time to my first Leica (an M3 in the 70s loaded with panatomic-X). With a few tweaks in Lightroom you can bring the images to the present, but why would you want to do that? It would be erasing the wonderful personality of this tiny, well=built jewel.

Amazing Little Lens

I bought this lens from Pergear and it arrived about three weeks ago. I happened to have the Leica M11 on loan from Leica for a review, so I was excited to use it on that camera. I always lusted after the Leica 28/5.6 Summaron, but could never justify that price, so this was a perfect choice. It's my first TTArtisan lens as well. In short: it's excellent. Veiling flare (and not the pretty kind) is the biggest issue - the hood mitigates this a good deal of the time, but not always; problem is how much the hood intrudes on the viewfinder frame, and of course how much bigger it makes everything. I've just resorted to using it without the hood and reframing slightly if there's undesirable flare. Sharpness is actually quite good across most of the frame at f/5.6, and very good at f/8. Beyond that, you hit diffraction territory on the M11. For what it is, it's awesome. Cheap, tiny, well-built, good IQ, and it comes in a lovely little jewelry-type box as well! Better packaging than lenses that cost 5x the price.

Excelent lens.

I use this lens with the Leica M8 and it gives me nice 37mm. So the sharpness is very good across the frame. The build quality is amazing. It is made of metals and its heavy. The focus is very smooth. I'm extremely pleased with this lens.

Amazing sharpness and nice build quality

The sharpness of this lens is amazing! Compare to Leica Apo Summicron-90mm, the sharpness at maximum aperture is exactly the same. I am using these two lenses on M11.

Not A Leica Summaron But Darn Sure Is Nice...

I use this lens on my Panasonic Gx9, Fuji xt-2, xt-1. and Leica Me 240. It you want something very sharp and want to use it indoors this lens is probably not for you. However, I have used it indoors and used it outdoors and it has gorgeous handling and build quality. The images have a lovely character and very according to format. Great BW images. I have used Leica lenses and copies for years and at this price point, with the unique character, and build quality this purchase would be a no brainer

Sharp lens

For less than one tenth the price of the Leica Summaron it's a ridiculous great deal
