Comments: 43, on the topic: Announcement: TTArtisan 56mm F/1.8 AF ED

  • Basil

    It's flooded with Chinese! That's it, and there's no company as such in the photo!

  • Rodion

    They sit there and think: what if Triplet Cook is overclocked to 56/1.8? This is how this ten-lens artisan came about...

    • Konstantin

      At first amateurish glance, it seemed to me that the scheme is very complicated for a fifty-kopeck 1.8 and should be better than necroplanars, is that not so?

      • Rodion

        The scheme is complex, but the arrangement of forces of the elements is very reminiscent of something. See for yourself: the first three lenses are like a complication of the first

        • Rodion

          the first component of the triplet. Totally positive, clearly.
          Next come three more lenses. Clearly overall negative. And in totality it is very similar to the average triplet lens. Then there is again a positive group of three lenses - like the last lens of a triplet. And the last two lenses are a split meniscus corrector of the Tairovsky type.
          And yes, this is not just absurd nonsense - if you look at dissertations on optics, you can see similar analysis of circuits and it works.

          • Konstantin

            In general, it would be interesting to read from you a brief analysis of the optical designs of Chinese AF fixes that have been released in recent years, especially 23 and 35 mm.

            • Rodion

              There is not enough data to make such a determination. Plus, the Chinese lie shamelessly and everywhere they can - you can’t trust their MTF charts, for example. Without them, it is not easy to analyze optical properties. It’s not so interesting to twist in isolation from the properties of the circuit.

              • Arkady Shapoval

                They can safely use here the scheme from the just announced Viltrox AF 56mm 1:1.7 STM ED IF and no one will know it.

  • Eugene

    It turns out that they won’t make a single lens for the mirror anymore?

    • Faust

      Pentax can do it, Krasnogorsk can do it)

      • Rodion

        Krasnogorsk maybe?)

        • Faust

          Krasnogorsk even does it under the M42)

          • Rodion

            Krasnogorsk is no longer doing anything.

      • Arkady Shapoval

        Krasnogorsk has become a global outcast in the global photographic equipment market. In addition, his “new items” are easily replaced by old items at flea markets from the last century.
        Pentax is simply playing around, repackaging old schemes in new wrappers, for example, its latest new products: SMC PENTAX-FA 1: 1.4 50mm Classic, HD PENTAX-FA 1: 1.4 50mm, HD Pentax-FA 1: 1.8 77mm Limited, etc. It's not like they're new at all. And the last full-frame camera was announced 7 years ago (which was already an almost complete copy of the 1 K2016, which was already built on a Sony sensor from 2012).

        • Ernie

          It is doubtful that Pentax is developing anything from 0 at all. They are busy refinishing old glass and third-party glass like Tamron.

          • Arkady Shapoval

            Tamron no longer makes for DSLRs, so soon Pentax will be left with nothing. Still supported by compact sales

    • Konstantin

      Well, the Chinese are still releasing something manual, autofocus, nothing new will happen.

      • Arkady Shapoval

        The Chinese are not fools and in the same way they do not announce anything new for SLR cameras, even from manual optics. Very, very rarely does a specific 500/8 or Fisheye slip through.

        • Konstantin

          ttartisan recently released 100mm 2.8 from M42.

          • Arkady Shapoval

            and what else? many mirrored new products? and the same 100/2.8 is a very niche solution, just like mirror-lens or fisheyes.

            • sandro

              Why rivet them new if the secondary glass is filled with glass and is inexpensive?

              • Ernie

                This will be enough for us lovers for many years. Let the pros switch to BZ.

    • sandro

      Last year TTartisan made a triplet for DSLRs, for example. There is even one under the M42.

      In general, it is not clear why. Under the DSLRs the glass is like a fool's candy wrappers. Samyang even already has super wide ones - I don’t want to take them off

  • Faust

    The question was whether someone would do it or not, right? I replied that Pentax and Krasnogorsk. The question of quality, outcasts and replacements was not raised at all. Rodion, do you mean that Krasnogorsk sells off the remainder and does nothing more?

    • Arkady Shapoval

      Of course they will do military service, sights, prisms, sights, periscopes, night lights, the old fashioned way

      • Basil

        The very inscription “made by the Chinese” does not bode well, and in general, to have such Chinese bullshit now is not to respect yourself!

        • Rodion

          Okay, they bring and have brought Chinese glass to the Russian Federation, because they themselves cannot weld such quality*. Who's the bullshit here?

          *In the CDGM catalog, the lousiest glass produced roughly corresponds to our 2nd category, and it is better not to even use our lousiest glass for its intended purpose.

        • Arkady Shapoval

          Yes, especially the last ones Viltrox AF 75/1.2 XF STM ED IF PRO, which have become an absolute bestseller, or Laowa 24mm 1:14 2X Macro Probe, which revolutionized the advertising business, or YnLens YN85mm F1.8R DF DSM, which has become the sharpest lens. And against the backdrop of KMZ, the Chinese are simply Gods

          • sandro

            There is also the widest laowa 9/5.6, their widest shift 15mm and the recent 10/2.8 autofocus.
            Well, the macroprobe has already gone through the second edition.

            They have also already captured the market for ultra-fast fifty kopecks.
            Well, again, for those who do not like the Chinese, there are native optics and they are only becoming more numerous.

          • sandro

            The sirui sniper line with /1.2 aperture is also impressive.
            And from the last five years, KMZ has only petzval and its variations?

      • Rodion

        Literally “the old fashioned way” )

    • Rodion

      Well, yes, in fact it is. Now everyone only cares about one thing.

      • Faust

        I want to clarify, I don't know. Has Krasnogorsk closed its lens production? Their policy is on the verge of madness, of course.

        • Rodion

          That’s what I’m saying - no one cares about photographic lenses, all optical enterprises in the post-Soviet space were primarily military and did what Arkady listed above. Their policy is fully consistent with the current requirements of the state.

          • Faust

            Has the production of camera lenses been closed?

            • Rodion

              Have you seen their lenses with serial number 23... or 24...?

              • Faust

                Rodion. Well, that is, you assume, but don’t know for sure, what they closed. Understood. Personally, I have not seen any news about the closure of the lens production line. I see that the online store has a new product for Sony E, the store in Guma is open.

                Arkady, regarding the fact that Russian products were removed from foreign sites, you yourself understand the reason.

              • Rodion

                Even if I know for sure, I won’t tell you.

              • Faust

                Well, no need, be-be-be)

            • resist

              There was an interview recently, they said that they were concentrating their efforts on other areas, but the lenses would still be sold (apparently old stock). Apparently everything is as written above - the defense industry has killed optics for vaneks

              • Arkady Shapoval

                this was expected. I also like that many Western sites have even removed mentions of Zenit lenses. On the same bhphotovideo.com there used to be a lot of KMZ “products”, now they are not even in the site’s cache
