Thanks now im going to buy some lens from 7artisans!
claude mainville (15 дней назад)
This lens is this better zeiss planar Contax and zm 50 mm f2
TechnologyMafia (15 дней назад)
I havent tried that, so I dont know.
Archton (17 дней назад)
I don't know if I should go for this as a starting budget portrait lens, or to pay a little more for the Sony 50mm f1.8 OSS, or to go all in with the 55mm 1.8 Zeiss. Really conflicted rn.
Archton (16 дней назад)
TechnologyMafia are you saying that the 50mm won’t drop much in value even a few years down? Isn’t is already quite old?
TechnologyMafia (17 дней назад)
Archton In 2-3 years you can sell the 50mm for 85-90% of what you paid for it and buy whatever the newest best full frame lens is out at the time.
Archton (17 дней назад)
How about if I MIGHT consider switching over to full frame in the future? (eg. maybe 2-3+ years down the road)
TechnologyMafia (17 дней назад)
If you know you want a good portrait lens, get the Sony 50mm. It honestly performs 95% as well as the zeiss for a fraction of the money.

Hallo sir, I'm new in photography. I'm from jakarta, indonesia. I really like the reviews you have posted coz you always put the samples of lenses. I want to ask you for a favor. Will you help me to pick one of the best bokeh between 7artisans f 1.2 35mm and 7artisans f1.4 55mm. Thank you for yout concern, sir..
Andy Drew (26 дней назад)
Hey technology mafia would you recommend this or the Kamlan 50mm f1.1?
Andy Drew (26 дней назад)
TechnologyMafia Thanks! I'll give it a try for sure
TechnologyMafia (26 дней назад)
I personally like this lens a little bit more than the kamlan!

MJ Melendez (2 месяца назад)
Hey! Thanks for posting this video it was extremely helpful sir! I see mixed comments here that seem to align with your thoughts. I just purchased an a6000 and loving it for both our photos and channel videos; but curious, would you recommend this over a Neewer 50mm or Meike for a budget friendly upgrade?
XYZ Republic (2 месяца назад)
Hello, which do you recommend between 7artisans 55m 1.4, 25mm 1.8, and 35mm 1.2 in term of performance/quality? (without considering the prices) i'm really impressed with the widest aperture of 35mm lens, but in real world does it produce better bokeh than 25mm or 55mm lens? I need your advice, thank you. ☺️

does 1.6x crop factor apply to this lens making it 88mm, or does it not apply because it is made for aps-c?

Yes, and its a 1.5 crop.

love your review.. are you wearing orient ray? 😀 and whats your opionion, this lens or kamlan 50mm??
TechnologyMafia (2 месяца назад)
This lens is easier to use, I think the Kamlan is just cooler because its F1.1.
ronnie chavez (3 месяца назад)
If you like autofocus and don’t mind spending a bit more you could get the Samyang 35mm 2.8 it’s for full frame Sony’s but in the a6000 it crops it to 52mm, $294 on Amazon 👌🏽
Neeraj Sinha (3 месяца назад)

H Aitch (3 месяца назад)
Hi TechnologyMafia, which one is better the Kamlan 50mm f1.1 or this 7artisans 55mm f1.4, I recently bought Kamlan 50mm last February based on you review of the kamlan now Im confused which one is better, thank you 😅 please I will sell my Kamlan if the 7artisans is better. I find the kamlan hard to focus and soft pn the edges. Please let me know which one is better or make a side by side review. We will be all happy 😅 Thank you
George Lenz (3 месяца назад)
Good vid. I already have the Sony 50mm 1.8, but it sounds like this lens, even with 1.4, would be better.

What's your choice for an inexpensive wide lens for A6000?

Rokinon 12mm.
SkullFTW1 (3 месяца назад)
awesome channel, i recently found it while lookin for a6000 reviews, your videos have gotten considerably better from that one. On the other hand I wanted to know if you have had any expirience adapting A/minolta mount lenses to the a6000 and which cheap adapters could work best. As Im looking into buying one and have some lenses that i would like to keep
46Marplatense (3 месяца назад)
Man do a side to side comparation of this lens against kamlan f1.1 You will kill it on views.

I remember buying their 25 1.8 off your review it’s my favorite lens I currently own but seeing its shots wide open at 1.8 I don’t wanna see what this 1.4 ‘s corners are like. I think I will pass on this one but their 25 1.8 i amazing for the money.

Victor Fonso (3 месяца назад)
Is there OSS? Applicable for sony A5000?
Nath Kanthi (3 месяца назад)
i think a pentax 50mm 1.4 with an adaptor is a much better option which will cost you much less with an adaptor and give you superb pictures
TechnologyMafia (3 месяца назад)
Nath Kanthi I have both, and this lens is better than the Pentax 50 1.4
Travis Simpson (3 месяца назад)
Will this lens or a Neewer 35mm 1/7 work well with a Sony NEX-6 camera body? Thank you for reviewing basic lenses the general guy on the street could afford. It's much appreciated.
TechnologyMafia (3 месяца назад)
Travis Simpson Both are good lenses, it just depends on the focal length you’d use more. This is a better outdoor portrait lens, while the 35 could do street and interior photography.
Courtney E (3 месяца назад)
I’m going to Italy in 2 weeks. I have a Sony A5100 with kit lens. What lens would you recommend for shooting the Dolomites (landscapes). Am I okay to use the kit lens or should I grab a pancake or a 55-210mm zoom? I’m a noob!
Pavel Lipatov (3 месяца назад)
updating Sony A5100 to A6000 sounds funny - unless you need ext mic / flash / viewfinder .. i would miss the size touch focus and selfie screen)
TechnologyMafia (3 месяца назад)
Courtney E Just use the kit lens, you will be fine! For landscapes my favorite lens is the Sigma 16mm, but it’s $450, and for you that money would be better used on eventually upgrading to a newer camera. (A6000 or A6300)
PowerHouse BLN [est. 2012] (3 месяца назад)
would you recommend getting this 7artisans over an adapted minolta 50mm f1.4? it seems on the adapted one you will have to multiply the aperture by the crop factor, right?
Rafael Cabrera (3 месяца назад)
Hi TechnologyMafia! please try the super takumar 35mm f3.5 !! Thank you!

Sha D (4 месяца назад)
Thanks for your work, good video as always! Great lens for the price, but i just sold it simply because it's quite difficult to take portraits with a nice bokeh and to catch the focus on a person you shoot. I bought the 50mm 1.8 oss and so happy about that. One more thing, if you don't have a 6500 with the build in stabilization ( i have 6300 ), you'll not get so sharp pictures, i mean handholding, peace

@technologymafia this might be a stupid question but does sd card make a difference in video quality?
Alu35 (4 месяца назад)
hmm ok I will look into that, thank you for the fast response !
TechnologyMafia (4 месяца назад)
Alu35 No, it doesn’t, BUT in order to record in higher frame rate and higher quality (XAVCS) you do want a fast SD card. I know some older SD cards don’t support XAVCS.

Buy a Nikon 50mm 1.4 non AI for $50 to $75 , way better and build like a tank
Om Arsu (4 месяца назад)
new lenses generaly have better coating, which impacts to clarity, than old lenses. I have the nikon 50/1.4 AIS too
Dean (4 месяца назад)
If I did not have enough for the 50 1.8 - I would choose a vintage lens and just adapt it. A Nikkor 50mm 1.8 or 1.4 would probably be better...
ClixT (4 месяца назад)
Nice! Too bad I already have too many 50mms, and will be transitioning to a7iii lol. You should go back to trying vintage lenses 😃

Caleb Shaw (4 месяца назад)
Thanks for all the videos you do, they are brilliant and incredibly useful for me as a relatively new person to DSLR's! I have had the Sony A6000 for a while and have tried to use the kit lense for vlogging but it lacks clarity and doesn't have great bokeh. Could you do a video on what the best vlogging lense alternative is to the kit lense? Thanks again for all the videos you make!
Mind. Art. Creativity. (3 месяца назад)
Look through his videos on his channel, there's a chance technologymafia has done already reviews of the 16mm and/or 20mm.
Caleb Shaw (4 месяца назад)
Thanks for that! To be honest, my budget is tight, but I'm really interested to see what it looks like (being used for video) in practice, and I know TechMafia usually shows it really well, so that's why I asked really. Thanks for the comment though!
Jason Osmond (4 месяца назад)
For vlogging, get the Sony 10-18mm f/4 if you can afford it, or the Sony 16mm f/2.8 or Sony 20mm f/2.8 (with the wide angle converter) if you can't.
Dario Alessio (4 месяца назад)
for the price I think it's a steal
Aleš Krejčí (4 месяца назад)

SLR Magic 50mm F1.1 Cine Lens for Sony - the best !!!!! - recommend !!!!
tunor erton (4 месяца назад)
Nice lens for photos. Look for the vintage Meyer Gorlitz Oreston 50mm f1.8 : it's 100 dollars and needs an m42 adaptor but has the best bokeh I've ever seen. https://www.google.it/search?q=meyer+gorlitz+oreston+50mm+f/1.8&client=ms-android-samsung&prmd=sinv&source=lnms&tbm=isch&sa=X&ved=0ahUKEwiBouf1i7jaAhUmBcAKHVmYC_oQ_AUIEigC&biw=412&bih=652&dpr=2.63
Rishabh Singh (4 месяца назад)
Can you review the FE 85/1.8? It's been gaining some popularity among the APS-C crowd as a longer portrait lens. A comparison to the 50/1.8 OSS would be awesome too!
Om Arsu (4 месяца назад)
buy the 85/1.8.... on a6000 it focuses faster than a7ii
ClixT (4 месяца назад)
Marius KC it would be. The thing with the 85mm is that it has longer reach, but I feel like it won't be enough for your needs. Also if you're aiming for absolute bokeh/creamy background, I'd consider playing with vintage 135mm lenses particularly the MINOLTA MC TELE ROKKOR-PF 135MM F/2.8 (has a lightroom profile) or a Konica Hexanon AR 135mm. I forgot to mention that the longer the FL is, the harder to manual focus and get sharp images unless you raise your shutter speed similar to what the OP said.
Marius KC (4 месяца назад)
ClixT I already have the 35mm 1.8 which I love, so I'm thinking 50mm will be too similar? 85mm would be good for events where I can't get up close
Rishabh Singh (4 месяца назад)
Marius KC if you'll be shooting in low light, be aware that the 85 is difficult to use on the A6000/A6300 since you have to keep shutter speed faster than 1/125 for the most part. A6500's stabilization makes it a lot more useful in low light. In daylight, I'd say the 85 is better for portraits in most scenarios..it's also a bit more reach for action photography/events
ClixT (4 месяца назад)
Marius KC it really will depend on your shooting style. If you take mainly environmental portraits or in a place where there's a lot of space, then the 85mm will work. Do note that 85mm is essentially a 127.5mm because of crop factor. Honestly, I'd get both if you can afford it.

I don't know if you noticed but I just requested for this lens's review in your last video. So thanks. I have another request for you to review the pronto lens adapter and let us know how you feel about it. Thanks.
Jean Lambert (4 месяца назад)
It’s my favorite too 👌btw the 50 f1.8 is really close in therm of quality
Tasurincci (3 месяца назад)
I like how compact it is, I'm really tempted on getting it just so to feel that bit safer when taking urban pictures in crime-prone neighborhoods.
Pavel Lipatov (3 месяца назад)
Actually i don't care about vignetting .. i want more light in the evening / better bokeh and built quality ... also i think it is more convinient for me to hold bigger lens on my tiny a5100. For traveling and reducing weight - i have sigma 30 2.8 and 16-50 55-210 - so manual only for domestic use and portrets. So if the sales answer was only because of vignetting - i still think i made great choice )) Thank You
Jean Lambert (3 месяца назад)
Pavel Lipatov i think the difference is in the vignetting under f2.8 but up to it’s clear the 55 is better but don’t worry both give a nice feeling If you have one of those two you don’t really need the other one 😉
Pavel Lipatov (3 месяца назад)
I asked sales@7artisans.com - answer was " 50mmF1.8 will be better quality at F1.8-F2.8. " .. but i already paid foe 55 1.4 ... hope they were kidding ))
Jean Lambert (3 месяца назад)
Tasurincci My friend have the 50 f1.8 of 7artisans and I do have the 55f1.4 so we compared it and there is not a huge difference except the 50f1.8 is smaller and cheaper (90 US$ vs 125 US$) But it would be for both of them a nice upgrade over the kit lens.
Probe Rok (4 месяца назад)
awe they need to get with the full frame.
Lucky Never (3 месяца назад)
i just upgraded from aps-c, love the full frame look and low light performances in video. 120fps also look sharper
uscfroadie (4 месяца назад)
I have the a7iii and the a6500. Let's be honest, full frame is not all that special, which is why mine is heading back to B&H for a refund. With great lenses on both I had to do some extreme pixel peeping to see the very slight difference. Yep, battery is better, focusing is just a tad better, joystick is completely overrated, and low light is just a little better (nowhere near what I had hoped it would be), and for that you give up size and weight. Screens on the back of both are useless in daylight, though the a7iii's is a tad bit better but still useless. Buying the a7iii made me appreciate the a6500 so much more than I already did. For those looking for an "open box" a7iii, keep an eye on the used section at B&H. Mine will come with menu settings you want to make from the start and with a near fully charged battery. Slap your lens on a go.
