My original intentions with this lens was to challenge myself to take somewhat useable pictures with such a low quality and inexpensive compact fixed aperture lens. But I found myself extremely surprised with the results. This is most certainly sharp enough for a 24mp aps-c sensor, though corner sharpness won’t be very satisfactory and center sharpness is only passable. Contrast is also very low, especially in bright backlit scenes, but you can’t ask for much at its price. The lens appears to be metal and doesn’t have weather sealing, but fits extremely snug onto the camera body. I personally shot with my Sony A7RIV full frame.enjoyed the vignetting. Results can be half decent as long as you don’t point the lens up towards the sky. All shots were taken at shutter speed 1/100s on a fairly rainy overcast day on a mixture of ISOs ranging between 1250-3200. While I wouldn’t incorporate this lens into my business, it can be fun to strip the rig to its bare minimums and put this lens on for a walk around. On a smaller body like the a6000, a7c, or zv-e1 I could see the entire setup fitting into a deep pocket.Overall a very satisfying lens for $60, it arrived very well wrapped, inside a soft bag, inside a plastic case, surrounded by a very very large amount of plastic wrap, no way it would ever get damaged in transit. 7artisans surprised me with this one.

Amazing product. This is a type of lens that will test your photography skills. You can get the same results as a more expensive lens if you know how to use it.Pros: Sharp, super compact, and good contrast.Cons: People will leave bad reviews because they're bad at photography.

I use this lens on my full frame, Sony camera, even though it’s meant for APSC sensors because I love the vignette.

I bought this thinking it would be a lightweight “creative” lens that I could carry around on the cheap. I thought it would be really soft but good for walking around lightweight. The lens is sharper then I expected. I did have to adjust the focus a bit depending on the shot but overall I was surprised by the quality of the shots taken with my x-t5. There is some vignetting, which I don’t mind, but distortion seems well controlled. These shots are HEIF straight out of camera except the pigeons which was cropped and converted to b&w with Apple photos noir filter.
