Here’s a lens that could be amazing value for money: a 50mm f/1.1 lens, for mirrorless cameras with sensors as big as APS-C. It’s currently available for Canon EOS M and Sony E-mount, with plans for a Fuji x and Micro 4/3 release, and it’s only $170! (At the time of making this review, the price was $150, which is why I say that in the video). Can the build quality and image quality possibly be any good? And even if not, does the very low cost and potential for images with such out-of-focus backgrounds keep it an appealing choice? Let’s find out.
At the time of making this review, the lens was on Amazon.com for $150, and available for Sony E and Canon EOS M mount. I am told there are plans for it to come out in Fuji X and Micro 4/3 mount in July.
Here’s a link to where you can buy it in the US: http://bit.ly/2thh4UM
