Pros: 12 diaphragm slats, double nature, construction

Cons: in relation to the price null

Opinion: What can I say, a lens that amazed me. Reading about it on the net, it seemed that I had found a patacca in my hands, but it is not even remotely so. The lens changes nature between f1.1 and f1.4. At maximum opening the bokeh will be jagged, it reminds me a bit of the helios with its "swirly bokeh". If used, however, without particularly punctual and repetitive backgrounds, it is easily usable with a detachment and a record-breaking pastiness. Closing at f1.4 instead this characterization of bokeh disappears, and we will find ourselves 12 slats that round everything and make it magical. Perhaps one of the best yields ever seen with a 50 f1.4. Infiltrations disappear, contrast drops, it truly becomes an excellent lens, with a bokeh whose optical aberrations are reduced by the presence of diaphragms. Beautiful, beautiful and really beautiful. Obviously demanding a uniform yield from edge to edge on a similar lens is out of place, buy more. It also performs well on Sony, but obviously the edges are of lower quality than you could have on Leica, and frankly I do not recommend its use for genres where they are of fundamental importance. Give it to you if you want to have a multipurpose lens with a double character. You will have in all respects in your hands a vintage artistic TA lens, and an excellent 50 1.4 with compact dimensions in the rest of the diaphragms. The construction then is granite, all glass and metal, impossible to ask for more.

Pros: Colors, blurry, aesthetically beautiful (at least the silver version), fluid but not excessive focus ring.

Cons: Very poor edges and lack of hood.

Opinion: I use it with adapter on Sony 7RII almost exclusively to TA. I was immediately struck by the spectacular rendering of the blurred and the colors and a very captivating rendering of three-dimensionality. I don't want to blaspheme but it reminds me a lot of my summicron 50mm. On the other hand, used at f/8-11, it continued to show a poor sharpness at the edges that advise against its use in those genres where it is necessary to desire it from edge to edge. This lens is used for other purposes. The lack of the hood is a significant flaw, they could put it in the package, the cost would not have changed much. I would say that for what it costs it is a lens to have absolutely, maybe not for those who have a Leica kit, which will surely have a summilux or a summicron, but for those like me who have a sony and want to experience the thrill of shooting at f / 1.1.

Pros: Blurry, colors

Cons: Terrible, unwatchable edges, this to any diaphragm.

Opinion: I took portraits with this lens, I was struck by the Bokeh, and the softness, very pleasant in the portraits. When I started making ourselves genders other than portraiture, with a wider field, I was impressed in a negative sense, with kneaded edges and no detail, this to any diaphragm. I tested this test on Sony A7III. Instead tried on the Leica M240, the glass improves a lot.

Pros: Aperture 1.1, construction, de-click diaphragm, blurry.

Cons: Vignette at all apers even at F/8. Non-existent image edges even at closed diaphragms.

Opinion: Let's start with the packaging. 7artisans is a Chinese home but it succeeds in small things to amaze. The big brands or those emblazoned as voigtlander a box so they can only dream about it. You open it and you start to believe that under the doors there really is a Chinese noctilux. I omit the accessories for Leica with rangefinder as I will use it on Sony, but there are and indicate professionalism, extract the lens from its casing and perceive a wonderful solidity. Perfectly fluid ring and de-click soft diaphragms that I like even if I know that many prefer to orient themselves with the sound of the click. Practically to the perfect feel. Then I start testing the urban landscape. And it's a disaster. Any of my vintage lenses eats it. To all openings. I'm just quoting the Minolta Rokkor 1.4 and the Canon FD 1.4. Lenses from about sixty euros. 7artisans holds just a little at the center but loses miserably detail on all edges also closed to F/8 and this I find puzzling. Always Vignettando. I go back to the studio and I try some bokeh on still life and at least a little joy comes back. Delightfully creamy at 1.1 although with a very soft image that remains at least up to F/4. Chromatic aberrations as if there was no tomorrow. In short it is a very beautiful lens and from the import cost quite insignificant. For a purely blurred use on very very artistic or in very poor light conditions. Forget other areas. To f 1.4 Any other lens and I say any, the outclass. And No... I have not found the Chinese Noclilux...:D

Pros: Build quality, opening F 1.1/cost

Cons: Not a blade, vignette a little.

Opinion: Picked up and bay again at about 300 euros a few months ago, from the start I noticed the good construction invoice: a small and heavy metal barrel that dresses very well, but it is a bit ' my Sony a7. Nice sliding of the aperture rings and focus. The focus distance is about 70 cm, which I reduced drastically by mounting a helical adapter Ring. The quality of the details and the sharpness are not excellent, (but also my much more expensive Voigtlander 35 1.4 is not free of flaws) however this lens gave me a chance to try large openings without spending a craziness. In general good performance of colors and contrasts.. In any case I am fully satisfied, unfortunately in the catalog 7artisans does not have many choices for full frame otherwise I would have taken More. P.S. Leica M Mount
