TTArtisan has announced a new 50mm f/2 full-frame manual focus lens. The 50mm f/2 is constructed of six elements organized into five groups, with two high refraction index elements to control spherical aberrations. This portrait-length lens is also completely manual, with a minimum focusing distance of 50 centimeters.
The manual aperture iris is a 10-bladed diaphragm, which TTArtisan says translates to a smooth and circular bokeh. It also features a clicked aperture ring with full stop marks from f/2 to f/16.
Described as extremely compact and lightweight, the TTArtisan 50mm f/2 full frame lens is 60mm wide and 35mm deep and weighs around 200 grams, making it easy to add to anyone’s camera bag for those natural-looking candids and portraits. The lens also has a 43mm filter size.
The lens is designed to fit on multiple platforms, including DSLRs and mirrorless cameras, and is currently in stock for Nikon Z, Fujifilm X, Canon M, and Micro Four-thirds mounts. TTArtisan is also taking pre-orders for Sony E, Leica L, and Canon RF mounts. The lens also comes with front and rear caps, a manual, a warranty card, and an old-school sturdy storage box.
The TTArtisan 50mm f/2 for full-frame mirrorless camera systems will be available to purchase starting tomorrow for $69.
