Pros: Cheap, small, light, pleasant results with 'creative' aberrations

Cons: To be used on subjects knowing that it will not give perfect results

Opinion: Very pleasant, I have been using it for a while for subjects where I am not looking for the perfect result, but 'dirty', with perfect edges, backlight with flare and the like. I recommend it knowing all this. Great for portraits a bit 'dreamy' where the backlight becomes a veil that covers the faces. Closing the aperture obviously improves and at f 8 can also be used for more common photos

Pros: Small, light, beautiful, made only of metal and glass, very bright, all this at a very low price. Bokeh similar to vintage optics, for me is a pro!

Cons: Not as sharp as professional optics but you don't expect it from such a perspective. I'm not convinced by the diaphragm diaphragm diaphragm without shots, it's soft and it moves easily, not having the chip you never know what diaphragm you're photographing. It is not easy to focus on f/1.2 but when you succeed from so many satisfactions. However, it remains an optic not for everyone

Opinion: Optics bought new along with the 7artisans 55mm f/1.4 a couple of months ago for my beautiful xpro1. I wanted very compact optics, which I could keep in a pocket, and with a wide aperture of the diaphragm. Autofocus is not important to me since Fuji uses it only for pleasure and not for work. This small lens is not easy to use, it has a hateful diaphragm guinea and is definitely full of flaws (soft up f4, flare, excessive vignette etc.) but that does not mean that you can not take home beautiful photos, indeed, you can use these flaws in a creative way.

Pros: Great opening for an affordable price. Very small footprint. Good sharpness even at full opening (although it is difficult, even with Focus Peaking, to focus in the plane where you want...). Pleasant construction, high quality for its price, and robust looking.

Cons: No chips (it does not transmit LF, f, but above all does not allow the correction of aberrations in the Canon DPP software). Unbearable and asymmetrical vignette for t & t & 1/1000 (only on EOS M100, probably shutter defect). "Glows" around the contours and/or purple fringes, under sunlight and at f 4. Important flares that cut the frame, in some situations. Ugly Bokeh ("nervous") in areas just outside the depth of the field. Not very comfortable, a little hard and thin, changing the f-and-point of fire takes a moment. The dust easily slips into the interstitium at the edges of the front lens (now it does nothing, but I fear that over time it penetrates into the other lenses).

Opinion: After trying it in various light conditions, I can say that it is a valuable lens for value for money, but with a number of defects that narrow the possibilities, which make IMPEGNATIVA to use and therefore inadvisable to beginners. The following refers to the version for EOS-M, particularly tested on M100 where it suffers from the most serious problem. It is possible (see the examples on the net) that defects vary depending on the version (Fuji, etc.) Wanting to sum it up, this vintage-designed, well-built, rugged-looking little "jewel" is great for interior scenes, in the shade, with diffuse or night time light (see some examples below Jeanpierre), while falling miserably under direct, front or side sunlight. In short, wanting to get a decent image, it is a f/1.2 "castrated", because in many conditions you have to close it at least from f/4.5 (about). In fact, I have found two important aberrations, which are presented only with FORTE sunlight, and to MEDIO-GRANDI openings (f - 4.5, then for very short shooting times) that in my opinion make the image practically to be trashed: - A very strong vignette, not to be believed, and also asymmetrical (covers the two upper corners of horizontal frames), for times 2/1000". This defect is very strange and still inexplicable to me. It does not appear in Live View view, and is not reported for EOS M50. I'm afraid it depends on the mechanical shutter of the M100 (lower end). The vignette seems to be actually an area of underexposure caused by an imperfect movement of the shutter curtain, which is NOT the case with Canon optics even at 1/4000". It is present, although less strong, even with the older brother 55mm f1.4. You can miraculously compensate with the Graduated Filter feature in RawTherapee, adjusting it very carefully. - "glow" color aberrations on the contours, as if objects or people were emitting their own, horrible light. These aberrations could be corrected in RAW post-production, but neither Canon DPP nor RawTherapee (to Jan 2020) have the necessary correction data, being a niche lens and chip-free. In short, be careful to use this more open optics of f/4.5 if you are in the sun, or you are in serious danger of throwing the shot. If like me you have an M100, you are damned, and you have to keep under the times of 1/1000 always and anyway in order not to spoil the shots with that strange vignette (to consider buying cheap ND filters). A decent fix, not to throw the shot, as said you can get with rawTherapee's Graduated Filter feature (which, if well set, lightens a selective region of the image, and also works on JPG). Another minor defect of optics is the yield of areas just out of focus, where the bokeh has a "nervous" or "kneaded" appearance. Be careful to use it open in scenes very rich in details. The images it returns, when used in the limits above, are beautiful and with a vintage touch. The colors are maybe a little reddish, but just correct the RAW. In conclusion, even being totally manual, I recommend it only to experienced amateurs and if you find it used (very rare, to me it happened right on Juza). Find a good place in a light mirrorless set (I accompany him to 15-45 Canon), for portraits set on the go or street scenes that can be filmed calmly. Otherwise, for 180 euros new I do not know if I would recommend it, especially combined with the M100. Overall, considering that it's an f1.2 to 180 pounds, I feel like I'm getting to grade 8. At a wedding I brought only this and it gave me great satisfaction. (Note: In order to shoot with this lens, depending on the camera model you may need to set to "yes" "Shutter release without connected lens", since it is a chipless lens.)

Pros: Barrel Building

Cons: of each!

Opinion: Well, I wanted to leave my opinion on this lens that I took for my Fuji X-T2 and immediately made it to Amazon within 24 hours. Just pull it out of the box you say, wow! It's all made of metal and built discreetly, with fluid and well-cut nuts, and so far all right then, once mounted on the machine start to try it at TA, or F 1.2 and say: God!!!! But what is this rubbish????? A f 1.2 In focus there is nothing! Tests carried out with camera on stand and remote shutter release, so no vibration or anything... When you start to close to F4 then something sharp can be seen in the center, really bad very bad bad, not to mention the flare that in many users complain having tried it. I assure you that 152 euros to buy it are better in your pockets, alsciate lose and maybe if you want bright and quality lenses put aside the pennies, including these to buy this rubbish, not recommended.

Pros: Opening 1.2 (verified by calculating the stops). Solidity and fluidity of the nuts. Small, light but at the same time sturdy. Economic. Tank! Blurted interesting. Versatility.

Cons: It does not have autofocus functionality (but for that price) Flare and halos on high lights at full aperture.

Opinion: Purchase really right for my Canon EOS M6. Since I mounted it I have difficulty to take it off. It is a lens that covers the angle of a "normal" lens (like the ones that were provided in kit time with SLRs). It is a walking optics, able to immortate in the darkness of a church and church out some portraits. In the mirrorless panorama the board paired with the more expensive Samyang 12mm F2. At the level of definition, produces excellent results from F4 to F8, in my opinion the best stop is right between F4 and 5.6. At full aperture loses detail in particular at the edges, but at night at 1600 ISO will be difficult to notice its limits. After two months of use and an important fall, I can say that it is a very robust object. Not even a scratch, especially no sign of moving lenses or loss of image definition!
