Comments: 26, on the topic: Announcement: TTArtisan 50 / 0.95 DJ-OPTICAL ASPH

  • Sergei

    Now you need to wait for a detailed review of this subject on the famous site
    There, not so long ago, the third version of the Mitakon Speedmaster 50mm / 0,95 and the Russian Zenitar 50mm / 0,95 on the Sony E mount were tested in some detail.
    The Russian lens was rated very cool, while the Chinese one was very positive.

  • koba

    I estimate for myself the activity of Chinese manufacturers in the production of equipment with a Leica mount. According to statistics published by Leica itself, in 2018 they sold equipment worth $ 400 million, and exactly 50% of the sales came from China. This is not surprising - the most expensive cameras are sold in the richest country. The fact that China is the richest country in the world has been especially clearly demonstrated by recent events in the United States. So the Chinese manufacturers, of course, were delighted with the prices for original lenses from Leica and quickly figured out where they would be comfortable to turn around. If for other systems they try not to go beyond $ 150-300, then they could do something better and reach sky-high prices for Chinese manufacturers like $ 750. But we see that the lens looks great outwardly, and probably made also excellently, and in terms of optics we were able to cram all the good things there. The results of the reviews, I think, will confirm my guesses. As a reminder, the original Leica 50 / 0.95 costs around $ 12000. By the way, at a price of $ 750 to buyers of equipment from Leica, it will be like a tip in a restaurant. Just looked at a Leica store in China and the cheapest lens - the Summaron 28 / 5.6 - costs $ 3000.

      And the bayonet mount is put on any current FF BZK without any problems, so for manual glasses this is a very universal solution. Moreover, Sony has an AF adapter from it.

      • Arkady Shapoval

        You're about Techart PRO Leica M - Sony E Autofocus Adapter? Almost all old mounts have an autofocus adapter for SONY E with the same adapter.

        • Eugen

          And for c / y there?

          • Arkady Shapoval

            Yes, of course there is. Here is the list:

            • koba

              Mirrorless cameras are great for this. The manufacturer of this adapter correctly calculated - cameras from Leica (digital!) - suck for the rich and also for photographers who have to show off at exhibitions with them, I say firsthand, there is one from my Chinese friend and took it several times for shooting, the M240. It would be better not to do this, since I had a high idea of ​​Leica, I used it on film many years ago (now they have released M10-D with a more or less normal sensor inside, something on the level of Nikon D610, I am very interested, but Could they, with their dragon prices, put sensors for D4 or something like that in their cameras?). But the lenses - almost all of them without exception - have remained wonderful, they cannot be denied. So the manufacturers of adapters understood - if you screw these lenses to normal cameras, you get something excellent, moreover, for a cheap price, but with an autofocus! Interestingly, how do Sony cameras work with objects without contacts - that is, do they measure exposure automatically, without preliminary metering?

              • Alexey

                But why do we need a microcontroller in the lens to measure exposure? kenons always could and can do this even with an empty bayonet mount. there is no reason to think that other cameras cannot. younger nikons, yes, they can’t, but this is a marketing, not a technical limitation.

              • Leicaowner

                I won't even refute this nonsense ... Blessed are the believers)))

            • Eugen

              I'm talking about af-adapter c / y-sony e.

              • Arkady Shapoval

                That's right, put an additional original c / ym section on this Techart and you get c / y-sony e. This is a label for optional accessories for compatibility.

              • Eugen

                Thanks, I will have to try.

        • Alexey

          but, as I have already noticed, such an adapter is suitable for focusing only fixes, and even then, not all.

      • Pavel Gorbunov

        Not only FF, but also SF have adapters.
        Only there is no special sense in this if the FF lens vignettes on an SF carcass.

    • Not a bot

      Koba, stop your Soviet insinuations, recent events show that in the richest country (USA) there is a right to freedom of thought and protest, in contrast to the pseudo-fascist regime of China.
      And on the lens, you said everything correctly))

      • Koba

        Where did you find the insinuations on me? From wealth and a good life, people do not arm themselves and do not kill each other, as it seems to me. By the way, what I say or write, I know firsthand, I had to live in many countries, including those mentioned. It is difficult to understand a highly organized country, I agree, especially in the context of appropriate propaganda. but here, in general, there is a photographic site, and by and large we are discussing photographic topics, unless something related to this topic resonates with some of the peculiarities of the life of a particular country. And the last thing - insinuations are usually anti-soviet, and not vice versa ... I urge this site to be limited exclusively to photographic subjects.

      • twm

        Yes, where is propaganda? Koba only shared his observation, IMHO.
        For example, I can add: German cars are popular among Chinese students in St. Petersburg. And by this observation I am not praising Scoop.

        But all this is vanity. And my comment is, in fact, offtopic.

  • Tiger

    It is not clear without pictures. Why are they all needed, what picture? What's the trick?
    Well, light, you never know light now.
    There are 3 pictures on the site and all three are about nothing.

    • Arkady Shapoval

      This is a general question "what are lenses for?" and his sub-question “why do we need light fifty dollars?”. Photos, you can look on the net, for example, here.

  • Kremlin

    And where are the pictures from this miracle of Chinese technology?

    • Ivan

      This is an announcement, not a review.

    • Ivan

      And just above your post, Arkady gave a link to examples on the net.

  • Kremlin

    You can only buy on aliexpress.

  • Oleg

    I apologize for being a teapot ... But what, can a non-autofocus (manual) lens with some kind of adapters be turned into an “autofocus”?
