Good news for street photographers on budget: Meike recently announced a new 35mm f/1.4 fixed wide angle lens manual focus designed for Nikon 1-Mount / Canon EFM-Mount / Sony E-Mount/ Fujifilm X-Mount / Olympus or Panasonic M4/3-Mount.
A truly flexible lens, the MK-35mm f/1.4 Lens from Meike is a 52.5mm equivalent (on APS-C camera, otherwise 70mm on m4/3) prime characterized by its fast f/1.4 design along with a versatile focal length for working with a wide variety of subject matter. Individual lens elements feature a multi-layer nano coating to control surface reflections, flare, and ghosting in order to realize a high degree of contrast and color accuracy, even when working in bright and backlit conditions. Additionally, the lens sports a manual focus design for working with subjects as close as 40cm away.
This lens features 8 elements on 5 groups, aperture range of f/1.4-f/16, filter size of 49mm.
Fast f/1.4 maximum aperture affords extensive control over depth of field for selective focus techniques, and also benefits working in low-light conditions.
Multi-layer nano coating has been applied in order to suppress ghosting and flare for increased contrast and color fidelity when working in strong lighting conditions.
Manual focus design along with a manual aperture ring offer precise control over both focus and exposure.
All-metal construction is durable and depth of field and focus distance scales have been engraved on the lens barrel for pre-focusing needs.
