7Artisans 35mm F/0.95 Lens Announced

Chinese lens manufacturer 7Artisans has just announced a new lens compatible with APS-C cameras: the 7Artisans 35mm F/0.95. This entirely manual lens will be available in Sony E-mount, Canon M-mount, Nikon Z-mount, FUJIFILM X-mount, and MFT lens mount. Let’s take a closer look at it!

7Artisans 35mm F/0.95 – Features

If you’re new to 7Artisans, this Chinese lens manufacturer is known for making very fast manual photographic lenses at an affordable price.

The company announced the launch of a new lens compatible with DSLR/Mirrorless cameras with APS-C sensors: the 7Artisans 35mm F/0.95. It’ll be available in Sony E, FUJIFILM X, Canon M, Nikon Z, and MFT mounts.

The lens is entirely manual (focus and aperture) with a de-clicked aperture, and it is made out of metal. It’s a pretty compact and lightweight lens at just 369g/13oz.

The lens design consists of 11 elements in 8 groups. The minimum focusing distance is only 37cm/14.5in. The front of the lens has a 52mm filter thread to attach filters.

Price and Availability

The 7Artisans 35mm F/0.95 should start shipping at the end of November for a price of $255.

This price is really affordable for a lens this fast. As a comparison, the SIGMA 35mm F/1.4 DG HSM Art retails for $899, the Canon EF 35mm F/1.4L II USM is $1799, and the Samyang AF 35mm f/1.8 FE is $399.

I’m curious to see the first real-world footage shot with this lens. Indeed, with a maximum aperture of F/0.95, the image might be really soft if the lens is wide open. As you can imagine, you’ll probably have to stop the lens a bit to get tack sharp results.

What do you think about this new 7Artisans lens? What 35mm lens do you use on your APS-C camera? Don’t hesitate to let us know in the comments below!

This is the Risespray 35mm 0.95 III rebranded.

The Risespray has been around for a bit and uses the same optical formula as Mitakon II. The mechanics have been ruled superior to the Mitakon II. Price point for the Risasprey is similar to the announced 7 artisans- and you can have it now. I’m petting mine now.
