May be OK for video, but possibly only as a special effect for stills I have a 58mm 1.4 and wanted a wider angle (normal for MFT) , so I thought I would try this lens - how cheap can it be.It is truly a 1.4 lens, but like all lenses, there is a bell curve to image quality, and wide open is usually the worst. Stopped down to about f4, it gets better, but you probably already have an f4 lens.I would liken it similar to a 4MP image wide open. If you are fine with that, and need a 1.4 lens, this is a good lens for you. Or maybe for HD Video - which is innately 2MP.Its one of those lenses you think you might need one day, and it is so small and light, why not put in the bottom of your bag.I did some resolution tests - I have several Sigma 2.8s, the Minolta 1.4, and the kit f3.5 14-42 kit lens with O.I.S. Interestingly, the kit lens produced the best image in low light hand-held - which I suspect is the software resolving the image because the shutter speed was about 1/3 of a second. The 2.8s are normally exceptional quality when they are allowed to be shot at normal speeds for their focal lengths, so I expected the 2.8s or the 1.4 to be the clear winner. This c-mount lens was was the worst of the bunch.So, there may be an occasion where you might need it for low light, but the image quality will be around 4MP. 3Thia is a great lens, especially for beginners like me!This lens is absolutely fantastic for the price!When I bought my Panasonic G7 I knew that I wanted to expand my lens collection starting with old, cheap vintage lenses. I stumbled across this lens while browsing Amazon and decided I would try it even though it's new.This lens is tiny first of all. I knew it would be small, but I didn't really realize quite how small until the box arrived. I thought they hadn't given me the adapter with the lens because surely the box the lens came in wasn't big enough to hold everything. But, thankfully, and to my surprise, it was big enough to hold eveyrthing and with a bit of room to spare!The bokeh produced by this lens is great! The large aperture is good for indoor shots as well. I tried taking a couple portraits and they came out very nicely, but sometimes this lens can be very difficult to focus on faces even with focus peaking.I would also like to add that I do indeed get full sensor coverage on my Panasonic G7 (Micro Four Thirds).My only complaint is that, with the included adapter, infinity focus is impossible, but C-mount adapters are available which allow infinity focus.All in all I'm happy with my purchase and I would 100% buy it again!The attached pictures were all taken at the base ISO of my camera (200) so that no unwanted ISO noise was added. All of these pictures are JPG so the quality isn't as good as with RAW, but the general idea is still there.5Reasonable "character" lens for portraits. Useless for group pictures.Reasonable "character" lens for portraits. Useless for group pictures.* Focus "lags" and "drifts". This can be fixed to some extent by taking the lens apart and adding a "shim" to the pin that follows the groove inside the focusing ring. I used a segment clipped from a bent staple.* When the aperture is closed, it starts out as a circle with jagged edges at F2. It becomes an uneven six-pointed star at about F3.5. It becomes a four-pointed ninja star around F5.6. Then a rectangle at F8.* Optics appear to be uncoated and lens suffers from veiling glare a washed-out, low-contrast look caused by out of frame lighting shining across the lens elements. Lens hood does not reduce glare, but stopping down does control it. Glare becomes a broad streak around F5.6, which narrows as the aperture is further stopped down.* Field curvature. The focal plane is not flat, but curves outward toward the edges. Lens must be refocused whenever recomposed. This effect can make people stand out in portraits, but makes group shots impossible. Stopping down to increase the depth of field is not very helpful.* Moderately sharp. About 1800 in the center wide open, improves to 2000 by F2 (the limit of my chart). Edges are about 1400 wide open, improves to 2000 by F8. However, because of field curvature, the center and edges are never in focus at the same time.* Vignetting. Adds "character" to portraits.3I love it on my Panasonic Lumix G7I found out about this lens by accident when researching about anamorphic lenses for my Panasonic Lumix G7. I was looking for a lens which would give videos a different look, maybe more of a "film" look. A couple of things which I found odd (at first) was the price and it stating it's a CCTV camera lens. Upon reading other reviews on other sites and watching video samples on YouTube I decided to give it a try. It's not an expensive $400+ anamorphic lens but hard to beat for a unique lens for under $30 (at time of purchase).The lens was delivered via USPS inside a small bubble padded envelope. Inside the envelope was a small white box which contained the lens and the adapter to allow it to fit a micro four thirds body. I was surprised by the weight. The lens is made of metal and feels durable. At the front of the lens there's a ring which is almost half an inch in height and kind of works as a lens hood even though lens flares are still seen at specific angles. I don't mind the lens flares and this lens does give pictures and video a unique flare. The ring at the end does have a thread on it so it can be unscrewed.The focus ring is extremely smooth and so is the aperture ring. The benefit of the aperture ring is there's not clicks between stops and it provides a smooth transition from one end to the other. This is a huge plus for video. One thing I've noticed on mine is when you adjust one ring it sometimes affect the other which requires a little extra time to readjust the other ring. Not a big deal since it helps me ensure my shot looks how I want it to look. This is a partial reason for not getting a full five stars.The adapter is simple. It screws on to this lens and then locks into the body. There are no electronic components in this lens. This means no image stabilization, no auto focus, nothing. If you have extremely steady hands you can shoot great video while holding the camera. I'm not as steady as I would like so I use tripod and hand-held stabilizer.Setting the camera to AVCHD at 24p with a shutter of 50 provides an excellent look to your videos. Even better when applying a 2.35:1 aspect ratio / crop in post. In terms of vignetting I noticed it can get quite noticeable around the outside edges / area but only if you are at f1.7. Some will appreciate and like this look. If you're wanting to reduce the vignetting you can increase the stops until you get the desired look you're going for. For focus it's about a 12-16 inches to infinity. Anything closer will not focus.I'm really enjoying this lens a lot! Some say it's a toy lens. I'm not sure if some are saying this in a negative way as in it's not meant for professional videos and to only use it for fun or in a positive way because of its size but decent build quality. Either way I'm carrying this in my bag from now on and so far I haven't really taken it off the G7. I've uploaded a quick test on my channel on YT, under Life Works with Yakov. Hope to be shooting some more and uploading those for others to view.4Old time lense Great for the money.Sharp but soft (high flare level).You can not have a light source impinging on the front element curvature or you will have serious flare problems!That means even if you can`t see the light in the pic if that light touches the lense you have a clear ghost.So we are back to the 30 s and the light must be to the side or your back.Not good for wide angles its a telephoto situation I would like to see some more of these lenses in longer focal lengths. Also no markings for distance,depth of field,or F-stop.30.00 dollars. 5I attached this lens to my mirrorless (gx85) and I just love how the pictures turn outWanted to practice taking pictures but don't wanna splurge on expensive lenses yet since I'm just a beginner. I attached this lens to my mirrorless (gx85) and I just love how the pictures turn out. Adjusting the aperture ring needed some getting used to because it was a bit tight but I don't really mind because after a few turns, it became ok.Overall, For the price I had to pay, it's pretty much an awesome lens.5Far Exceeded Expectations Considering PriceI am not a photographer and I wanted a lens for low light situations for my Panasonic GX7, without spending a lot of money as I have minimal use for low light photography or videos. The lens (35mm version) exceeded my expectations. I also bought a 25mm version without the adapter (different amazon listing) and have provided sample photos of that lens in that review as well.Both lenses perform well. The 35mm does not vignette at all. The 25mm does at higher F settings.Also: The adapter fit perfectly No problems with zooming to infinityCon: Lens does not have a coating or a good enough coating as in some photos you may get a bright spot when pointed not directly at, but near a bright light source. Focus ring is smooth, but at times it gets jammed near infinity5Review for the Fotasy 35mm f1.6 for Micro Four Thirds.First off, this is a review for the Fotasy 35mm F1.6 for MFT. Most of the reviews here seem to be for the other lens in this listing.I bought this lens to go with a Yi M1 camera, a cheap lens to go with a cheap camera. I am new to photos, so I was not sure what to expect. This lens seems good for close up shots like portraits. No matter the setting, it does not focus on the whole at a distance, so landscapes and the like are not possible.It is an entirely manual lens, so it is interesting playing with the camera settings to figure out what ISO, Shutter Speed etc to use to get a good picture. I ended up using the camera in shutter priority mode, and set the speed slow or fast based on the aperture the lens is at.Acceptable for the price, and for something I did not know what to expect. Note, this is not a native MFT lens. It is a C mount lens that comes with an adapter for Micro Four Thirds.4Makes you work for it, but you get some interesting shots.This lens will make you work for the results, but you get interesting character in your shots that you don't get in other lenses. This won't replace any of your walk around lenses, but when you want some unique bokeh on a budget, this is where it's at.Although this is a cinema / TV lens, it is VERY jittery if you don't have some sort of in body stabilization on your camera. I suggest using a tripod to get the best results.I've included a sample picture to give you an idea of the look and feel of this lens. You'll notice that on the left side, the chair arm is more in focus than the right side, even though they are both equal distance away from the camera. These are the kinds of weird results this lens produces, and you either love it or hate it. I wouldn't be able to recreate this shot if I tried, even using the same lens.At the end of the day: it's a cheap, fun lens. So get it and enjoy!4Great bokeh in a tiny affordable lensThis is a manual-everything lens meant for a smaller camera system, so your images will have some vignetting around the edges. That isn't a detractor for me, especially considering the fantastic value for the money on a semi-wide angle lens that delivers great bokeh (strong blur outside the region of focus). I've included some sample images shot with the lens wide open (lowest f-stop) and at minimum focus distance. I've also included some additional shots of the product. The great thing about this lens is that it is a C-Mount, which means that you can mount it to other adapters and use the lens across several different brands of camera. The value for the money is incredible. Hopefully these will be useful to other buyers who might be considering this lens.535mm not working on gh5 (I got TWO!)I saw a video of a guy using one of these with his GH5 on Facebook, it looked great and told me to get this lens. I got both the 25 and 35.25 is great, works fine. I just got my second 35 today (the last one couldn't focus past five feet in front of me) and it literally does the same exact thing as the last 35 did. Except for some reason, the focus ring on this one focused like a canon.. The last one focused like a Nikon lens. I'm really hoping they will send me one that actually works. I'm craving to get this cool vintage look.I have my 3rd one ordered. I'll update about that one.. Hopefully it works and I can change this to 5 stars. ALSO.. I did notice, that if I remove the adapter and hold the lens closer to the cameras sensor, I'm able to focus further. So I think the problem may have to be with the lens' distance from the sensor.. Maybe through the adapter size, or a malfunction in the glass. We will see.1Not a beginners lens!This is an all manual lens, so if u don't already have a decent understanding of aperture, shutter speed, and manual focusing this is not the lens for u.Just got this lens and didn't expect much due to its price point. But man! After one shoot I won't be buying the expensive 20mm 1.7. U get great shallow depth of field and sharp images! The photo attached to this review was taken with this lens!I have a 5d mark III but I own a micro 4/3 camera for travel and family outings. If u want a very powerful lens and don't want to shell out the money for something expensive this is a great alternative!Some things to keep in mind. When u buy this lens your camera won't recognize the it because there are no electronics so u will likely have to go to the menus and shut something off. Generally your camera will tell u what needs to be done.Secondly manual focusing may be an issue for some but if u have focus peaking on your camera use it!Lastly I don't know how this lens performs at lower f stops so make sure u shoot with this lens wide open! It's made to be used at F1.7!! If that's not something that interests you than buy another lens! U shouldn't be shooting anything less than 1.7 because the bokeh is so delicious on this lens for 20 bucks? Wha!!! Can't beat it! Enjoy!5

Focus ring is smooth, but at times it gets jammed near infinity5Review for the Fotasy 35mm f1.6 for Micro Four Thirds.First off, this is a review for the Fotasy 35mm F1.6 for MFT. Most of the reviews here seem to be for the other lens in this listing.I bought this lens to go with a Yi M1 camera, a cheap lens to go with a cheap camera. I am new to photos, so I was not sure what to expect. This lens seems good for close up shots like portraits. No matter the setting, it does not focus on the whole at a distance, so landscapes and the like are not possible.It is an entirely manual lens, so it is interesting playing with the camera settings to figure out what ISO, Shutter Speed etc to use to get a good picture. I ended up using the camera in shutter priority mode, and set the speed slow or fast based on the aperture the lens is at.Acceptable for the price, and for something I did not know what to expect. Note, this is not a native MFT lens. It is a C mount lens that comes with an adapter for Micro Four Thirds.4Makes you work for it, but you get some interesting shots.This lens will make you work for the results, but you get interesting character in your shots that you don't get in other lenses. This won't replace any of your walk around lenses, but when you want some unique bokeh on a budget, this is where it's at.Although this is a cinema / TV lens, it is VERY jittery if you don't have some sort of in body stabilization on your camera. I suggest using a tripod to get the best results.I've included a sample picture to give you an idea of the look and feel of this lens. You'll notice that on the left side, the chair arm is more in focus than the right side, even though they are both equal distance away from the camera. These are the kinds of weird results this lens produces, and you either love it or hate it. I wouldn't be able to recreate this shot if I tried, even using the same lens.At the end of the day: it's a cheap, fun lens. So get it and enjoy!4Great bokeh in a tiny affordable lensThis is a manual-everything lens meant for a smaller camera system, so your images will have some vignetting around the edges. That isn't a detractor for me, especially considering the fantastic value for the money on a semi-wide angle lens that delivers great bokeh (strong blur outside the region of focus). I've included some sample images shot with the lens wide open (lowest f-stop) and at minimum focus distance. I've also included some additional shots of the product. The great thing about this lens is that it is a C-Mount, which means that you can mount it to other adapters and use the lens across several different brands of camera. The value for the money is incredible. Hopefully these will be useful to other buyers who might be considering this lens.535mm not working on gh5 (I got TWO!)I saw a video of a guy using one of these with his GH5 on Facebook, it looked great and told me to get this lens. I got both the 25 and 35.25 is great, works fine. I just got my second 35 today (the last one couldn't focus past five feet in front of me) and it literally does the same exact thing as the last 35 did. Except for some reason, the focus ring on this one focused like a canon.. The last one focused like a Nikon lens. I'm really hoping they will send me one that actually works. I'm craving to get this cool vintage look.I have my 3rd one ordered. I'll update about that one.. Hopefully it works and I can change this to 5 stars. ALSO.. I did notice, that if I remove the adapter and hold the lens closer to the cameras sensor, I'm able to focus further. So I think the problem may have to be with the lens' distance from the sensor.. Maybe through the adapter size, or a malfunction in the glass. We will see.1Not a beginners lens!This is an all manual lens, so if u don't already have a decent understanding of aperture, shutter speed, and manual focusing this is not the lens for u.Just got this lens and didn't expect much due to its price point. But man! After one shoot I won't be buying the expensive 20mm 1.7. U get great shallow depth of field and sharp images! The photo attached to this review was taken with this lens!I have a 5d mark III but I own a micro 4/3 camera for travel and family outings. If u want a very powerful lens and don't want to shell out the money for something expensive this is a great alternative!Some things to keep in mind. When u buy this lens your camera won't recognize the it because there are no electronics so u will likely have to go to the menus and shut something off. Generally your camera will tell u what needs to be done.Secondly manual focusing may be an issue for some but if u have focus peaking on your camera use it!Lastly I don't know how this lens performs at lower f stops so make sure u shoot with this lens wide open! It's made to be used at F1.7!! If that's not something that interests you than buy another lens! U shouldn't be shooting anything less than 1.7 because the bokeh is so delicious on this lens for 20 bucks? Wha!!! Can't beat it! Enjoy!5
