Fujian 35mm f / 1.7 review

Fujian 35mm f / 1.7 - a lens from surveillance cameras, adapted for use on mirrorless cameras with APS-C matrices or on micre 4/3.

The abbreviation CCTV (Closed-circuit television) appears in the name of the lens, which means CCTV cameras. But the enterprising Chinese sell it on aliexpress $ 20 each (under the Risespray brand).

In order to adapt it to your camera, the kit includes a screw mount for the camera mount. Available for Canon EOS M, Fujifilm X-mount, Sony E-mount (C-NEX), Micro 4/3. I tested this miracle on Sony A6400.

As you can guess, autofocus will not be here. It will need to be twisted with your hands. And this is not easy, because the lens has mediocre sharpness, and the Sony A6400 camera has an equally mediocre screen and controls.

Looks creepy on camera.

About image quality

From a technical point of view, it is disgusting. The lens is not designed for photography. Moreover, it is not designed to work with crop matrices. It covers the APS-C matrix and vignetting is not very noticeable, but there is no sharpness on the sides. What have I to do with it? on both sidesrather than at the corners. He has effective coverage in the area of ​​the 4/3 micra matrix, where the unsharp areas will simply be cut off.

At f5.6, center sharpness is decent. At open f1.7, sharpness is not very noticeable, but there is an interesting bokeh, for the sake of which you can consider buying such a non-standard lens.

The good news is that he knows how to spin a boke, like Helios... But at the same time it costs less and has a wider angle relative to most analogs.

The lens also has good macro capabilities, which is facilitated by macro rings included. Macro detail is very weak, but there is BOKE and drawing.

I show examples with bokeshka, tk. to shoot with this lens at infinity is not interesting. You can, but it just doesn't make sense.

Tamron AF 17-70mm f2.8 and AF 70-180mm f2.8 review on Sony A6400

In my video review, two lenses took part, which, in fact, can cover all the needs of a photographer / videographer on the Sony E-mount system:

The models are similar in appearance, but differ in focal lengths. Manufacturing material - plastic. Average weight. The picture quality is very good. There are only complaints about the distortion of the Tamron AF 17-70mm f2.8, which is present at all focal lengths. Autofocus is both quiet and fast. In general, we can safely recommend it.

I will tell you in detail about them in my video review:

Sigma ART 35mm F1.2, F1.4 and F2 lenses for Sony E-mount

So, lenses came to me for review:

  • Sigma 35mm f / 1.2 Art DG DN
  • Sigma 35mm f / 1.4 Art HSM DG
  • Sigma 35mm f / 2.0 Art DG DN

You can familiarize yourself with them in detail in the video review at the end of the article. Here I will briefly describe my impressions.

I think the best option is Sigma 35mm f / 2.0 Art DG DN... The lens has sufficient parameters for any tasks that are posed before a 35mm fixed lens. It's sharp, compact, and f2 is basically enough for anything.

On the lens Sigma 35mm f / 1.4 Art HSM DG I already there was a review for Canon DSLRs. Here we are dealing with the same lens, but with a built-in adapter for mounting on a Sony E-mount. The lens came out elongated, bulky and inconvenient to use on small Sony mirrorless cameras with their characteristic awkward grip. f1.4 is certainly good and the difference in background blur is present relative to the lens at f2. If you want a blurry background, it is much easier, cheaper and more convenient to take a longer focal length.

Version Sigma 35mm f / 1.2 Art DG DN - just a monster. Weight 1090gr is not a joke to you. This is a very heavy and very large lens. But it gives a unique aperture of f35 for 1.2mm. The background blur is very smooth and pleasant. What use for this is up to you.

In terms of detail, they are all very good. The 35mm f / 1.4 lags somewhat behind at the edges, but I would not say that this is critical. Version f1.2 pleasantly surprised me with excellent sharpness across the entire field of the frame already from the open aperture.

This is how these lenses look side by side:
