about 7artisans fuji

Thanks for look 7artisans fuji . What is art? It’s some of those subjects that maybe most of us won’t come completely in contract with. There are generally pieces of art that defy the creativity and catch your center, and sometimes there is art and 7artisans fuji where we stand straight back and look and question what it’s all about.

Art is personal, as personal as every one of us. But the reality is whatsoever an artist provides is art but it really comes down to if the masses take it or reject it. Here more about 7artisans fuji :

16 Gedanken zu “about 7artisans fuji

  1. I have a Fuji X-T20 and was in the market for a fast prime (specifically, the Fujifilm XF 23mm f/2) when I suddenly ran across a blog reviewing the 7artisans 25mm f/1.8. As you can imagine, I was met with much skepticism given the very low cost of a f/1.8 and it being an off-brand lens. Wrestling with the ideal of spending $450 for the Fuji 23mm f/2 (or possibly $899 for the Fuji 23mm f/1.8) vs. $70 for the 7artisans 25 f/1.8, I decided to take the risk on the latter. I figured, how much would I really lose going the cheap route compared to the cost of buying a new (or used) lens. The risk seemed worth it.After using the lens on a simple test shoot, it appears my gamble paid off. To the naked eye, the images produced by this glass is visually pleasing (see attached). Under a microscope, I’m sure the overall sharpness (pixel to pixel) is inferior to the Fuji 23mm f/2. However, based on my usage (i.e. causal outdoor photography, family portraits, product reviews on Youtube, etc), the quality is „good enough“. That said, this general assessment isn’t based on a detailed analysis of the glass (e.g. chromatic aberration, distortion, color rendition, etc), but solely on a visual observation as displayed on-screen.All said, I would highly recommend this lens for the casual photographer. At $70, it could even serve as a learning lens if you’re just starting out and would like to get more acquainted with using a prime lens in manual mode. Speaking of manual mode, I found it pretty easy to lock focus especially when using focus assist. Both the focus & aperture rings are smooth and easy to turn, although I did find myself reaching for the focus ring a lot when I really wanted to change aperture. That’s largely do to having large hands and things being pretty cramped on a much smaller lens than I’m used to. The overall quality of the lens feels solid and pairs nicely on the X-T20.So, before investing in a more expensive alternative, you might want to try it out for yourself. I’m actually considering getting a MFT version for my GH4.Note: With this being a APS-C lens, the 35mm equivalent of the 25mm focal length is: 37.5mmShipping: Ships directly from Hong Kong. I paid +$10 for expedited shipping. Received within a week from order date. Well packaged.NOTE: The attached photos are straight from camera – untouched using the 7artisans lens (jpeg format). All I did was crop to size.Hope this helps.

  2. To be up front, this lens isn’t perfect. This is expected – it costs less than 70 bucks. The upside, though, is that it’s capable of some seriously impressive performance that (to me) far exceed its shortcomings. Considering the price, it’s a 5-star lens. Details…Pros:- Remarkable sharpness in the center, even when shooting at f2. At f4 it’s capable of blistering sharpness across nearly the entire frame (see cons). Picture of leaves is a 100% crop of a picture shot at f2 – the resolution is incredible.- Decent contrast wide open, gets better at f2.8, reaches its peak at f4-8. Nice, deep color.- Bokeh can be a bit harsh, but it’s definitely possible to get very shallow depth of field. Picture of pink flowers shot at f2 gives you an idea of the character of the bokeh, and how much contrast is possible.- Surprising close-focusing ability. It’s no macro lens, but you can get extremely close to a subject, with no perceptible loss in image quality.- Nice build quality, compact design – with caveats (again, see cons). Mounts snug to camera body with no play.- It’s SEVENTY BUCKS. Crazy.Cons:- It’s capable of MONSTER flare with light in or close to the frame. Like, some of the worst I’ve ever seen. BUT, move slightly and it’s gone.- Extreme corners were always soft, even stopped down. I’m talking the very, very extreme corners, but it’s there. I’m pretty sure the Micro 4/3 version wouldn’t exhibit this due to the smaller sensor.- Barrel distortion will be evident if you plan to shoot architecture / straight lines. Not horrible, and expected with a lens this size / price.- Build quality is good, but not amazing. Mine has a small piece of debris visible in the glass, though even stopped down to f16 I wasn’t able to see any effect on image quality. Focus ring has a VERY slight gritty feel to it. Aperture is de-clicked… preferable for video shooters, but I prefer clicks.Conclusion… a definite bargain. The sharpness is astonishing, overall rendering of the lens mostly pleasing. It’s well-built, extremely compact, and good-looking. It definitely has some flaws, but considering the price, I feel like I got way more than my money’s worth. Will continue to update with more experience, and compared to lenses of similar focal length.

  3. I cannot give this lens anything less than 5 stars.The lens is optically very sharp and also gives you lot of opportunities to get a great bokeh. You cannot claim that with a other wide angles lenses even the branded ones. For the price is not even a steal it’s a heist. This is a no brained. This comment is coming from 15yrs experienced photographer.Yes it had its shotcommings; heck what do we expect from a sub $100 lens.1. Aperture ring is declicked which is great but too loose. I which it had some resistance as it tends to move around after a few shots.2. Very hard to nail end to end sharpness even at f16. The lens tends to give you nice bokeh at any given aperture which is both good and bad. I managed to find the sweet spot for end to end sharpness but it’s takes time to identify3. Smallest aperture is f16 and not f224. I did not find much of light change from f1.8 to f4. Not sure how optically this is possibl…

  4. Over all this is one hell of a little lens for the money. It’s sharp, manually focuses easily and quickly (Sony A6500 with peaking and focus magnification turned on). It’s tiny – reminds me of my old manual cameras when I first started learning to shoot. But above all else… it’s making shooting fun again as it forces you to be in the moment as you compose focus and shoot. No letting the camera figure everything out for you… you are in control. Also the quality is excellent and it’s a little tank. The Picts are wonderful and if you know your camera settings, this little 25mm, is a joy to mess around with. Plus you’ll fall in love with shooting again.For what you pay you’re getting a nice piece of glass and metal. The sliding aperture ring is smooth and you’re not limited to clicked stops – so you need to be really aware of where you’re at on the aperture settings. It’s small so you need to get used to the small turning radius of the focus ring – very slight turns for adjusting focus – that’s why I like the focus magnification on my A6500 – plus set focus peaking to mid range yellow… other wise it’s overwhelming.It’s tack sharp at about f4 with a bit of softening in the edges and slight vignetting, but over F4 it’s clean. It’s really fun to use as a black and white lens for street shooting. (I’ll post images soon). The unusual focal length is cool – between 20mm and 30mm lenses so it’s a nice mid wide.But once again – it’s a truly fun lens – well built and even if you’re a pro – I’m going to bet this will be a surprise in quality and just fun factor!

  7. Lens is ok but blurry in the corners even stopped down to F/4 or F5.6. I also have the a Minolta Rokkor 58mm 1.4 lens and that lens is sharp into the corners at F/2. In other words you are probably better off purchasing the Minolta if you want corner sharpness. The benefit of this lens over most all other lenses is that if you stop down to lets say F/4 you still get rounded bokeh balls due to the massive amount of aperture blades on the lens. I like the lens for that reason alone and will keep it in my kit for certain types of shots.

  9. This is an interesting and unique little lens. First, and most importantly, it is not comprible to any modern Fuji X glass. This lens is all character, which can be a good or a bad thing depending on what you’re going for. I have used adapted Olympus Zuiko lenses on my X Pro 1 for years and loved the results – very film like and unique. The only downside of this is the form factor of the camera – it doesn’t feel like a nice compact, sleek and unassuming rangefinder anymore. The 7Artisans lens however is the perfect fit for the X Pro, it feels perfectly balanced on the camera. My camera went from feeling like a weird frankenstein SLR to a high quality, digital XPan or Leica M6. Just be prepared to be patient with the lens and work with it for what it is and you will be well pleased.

  10. This lense can produce stunning images when used appropriately.At this price point there are a few commise but I have produced beautiful portaits with it.The lense get very sharp in the center starting at f1.8 but is still usable wide open.The bokeh produced by this lense is absolutely fantastic and a big reason why I love this lense.Chromatic aberration are I would say „moderate“ in high contrast area but I rarely use it in these conditions.

  11. I bought this lens because reviews suggested it was sharp and it would provide approximately a 35mm equivalent field of view on my Fuji camera. Unfortunately, due to other pressing business issues I could not get out to shoot and test it during the return period so I relied on the reviews and assumed it was a reasonably sharp lens. Imagine my shock when I finally had time to get out to shoot and found at f8 (not wide open) everything looked not just soft but virtually out of focus (when the camera reported it was in focus)! I thought maybe the problem was camera shake, so I put it on a tripod and shot tree branches at f8. While focus peaking indicated the trees were in focus, the smaller branches were blurry to the point of being indistinguishable and the large branches were fuzzy. Thinking maybe I had a camera body problem, I shot the same branches with both a Meike 35mm lens and an adapted Tokina vintage lens which did not show any perceivable blur. Both of those lenses showed sharp images of the smaller branches. I have no idea whether the problem is 7artisans‘ quality control and I just got a very bad copy of the lens or the problem is the lens design. Suffice it to say, my copy of the the lens is so „soft“ (or more accurately blurry) that is unusable! A total waste of money, at least in my case. I wish I had discovered the problem during the return period since I would have sent the lens back. Unfortunately, I was about 10 days too late.
