  • Neo

    Expensive, 200-250 bucks would be just right

    • Maksim

      They forgot to ask you.

  • Onotole

    Here is another lens (the first was Yaga 50 / 1,4) with a concave front lens. Can anyone explain what the advantages of such a solution are (if any)?

    • Arkady Shapoval

      In general, there are many such lenses, and Yong is far from the first. For example, among the known, strongly concave front lens has long been Carl Zeiss Sonnar FE 1.8 / 55 ZA T * (Sony SEL55F18Z) [Since 2013], while this is one of the sharpest fifty dollars of all existing and existing.

    • Rodion

      Computer calculations show that it is profitable - so they do it. I don’t think there is a sacred meaning here. An ultron with a concave lens was generally made on a dispute.
