Optics manufacturer 7artisans has announced its latest lens, a 28mm f/5.6 manual prime for Leica M-mount camera system, which the company says is “born for street photography” and perfect for capturing the decisive moment with the hyperfocal focusing.
The lens is entirely made of metal and is constructed of just six elements in four groups, including one high-refractive element and two extra-low dispersion elements. Is also rangefinder-coupled and features a unique infinity lock for securing the focus to infinity. It features both a clicked aperture ring and a focus ring with knurled grips.
Other features include a 35.5mm front filter thread, an eight-blade aperture diaphragm with a unique petal shape when stopped down, and a 1m minimum focusing distance. The lens measures 38mm in diameter by 44mm long and weighs 130g.
