Chinese manufacturer TTArtisan has just released a teaser of their upcoming lens: the TTArtisan 40mm f/2.8 APS-C Macro. As its name suggests, this lens covers APS-C sensors, it has a 1:1 magnification ratio, and it should come out at an incredible price. TTArtisan has built its reputation with fully manual photography lenses at incredible prices in less than two years. The company already released a dozen lenses, including the $150 TTArtisan 7.5mm f/2.0, the $98 priced TTArtisan 50mm f/1.2, and the $80 priced TTArtisan 35mm f/1.4.
According to this video released by TTArtisan, the 40mm f/2.8 APS-C Macro will be available in various lens mounts, including Sony E, Canon EOS-M, FUJIFILM X, Micro Four Thirds, and Nikon Z mounts.
TTartisan says the manual lens is constructed of eight elements in seven groups, including two low-dispersion elements. Few additional details are provided in the video, but based on the images of the lens shown in the video, the lens will have an aperture range of f/2.8 through f/16, have a 52mm front filter thread, and have a minimum focusing distance of 17cm.
At the moment, there is no price nor availability info. However, if you’re feeling lucky you can try to guess the price of the lens in the comments of the above YouTube teaser video; first to do so will get the lens for free when it’s released.
