    "85mm 1: 1.8 [Canon EF / EF-S and Sony E / FE] AUTOFOCUS"
    version for Sony only with manual focus

    For that kind of money, it is better to take the old manual 50 1.2 olympus, nikon, pentax, kenon fd.

    • Arkady Shapoval

      They will be mirrored and not new. For some, this is important, first of all, an adapter will need to be added to the UPC, to look in a normal state. And then once - and immediately the desired mount right from the box.

    Do you know that German opticians have been working for a long time in some Chinese companies, and not simple ones, but with great experience, otherwise they do not hire foreign workers in China. For example, there are as many as 6 of them at Laowa, and it is not surprising that they began to produce wonderful lenses, and now with L mount, even in appearance they look like German products, and are made according to the same standards. It is possible that some other companies will also practice a similar thing, by the way, very widespread everywhere and especially in the USA. So it's still a question of which lens will be better - the old 50 / 1.2, in which 1.2 was for the sake of a tick, or new developments, especially with native mounts, so that adapters do not look for adapters, and the price of $ 350 is even less than the prices of old similar ones. lenses. Nobody bothers to also try the lens at work before buying it. I do not have a full-frame mirrorless camera, otherwise I would try this lens at work and unsubscribe here, since in China there are no costs at all for this.

      We don’t know that German opticians work there, I haven’t seen anything personally, but the Chinese can write something that doesn’t exist, I myself worked at a Chinese factory, I heard different tales. let us do it and test it, we'll figure it out =).
