Both the build and optical quality of this lens far exceed the price point. If you're new to photography, or just looking to add more lens options to your collection, you really can't go wrong with this lens.
I needed a compact and affordable lens with autofocus for my FujiFilm XE-4, and I read some great reviews on this. As a beginner photographer, this is a fantastic option. I love that I can easily take photos with auto or manual focus and the quality of my photos are great.
What really impressed me was the customer service. I preferred the lens through Amazon and lost the lens cover a few weeks later. I reached out directly to the TTArtisan customer service via that live chat, and the customer service rep answered right away and shipped me a replacement all the way to Finland within a couple weeks. The customer service rep even followed up with me after it was delivered to make sure I received it. That attention to service makes me confident in the company and products.
I was taken aback by how nicely this lens renders the images. I appreciate the slight vignetting, as it gives this lens a vintage classic look. Very sharp, even wide open. I highly recommend this lens for portraits as well as streetscape and fashion shoots.
Pros: Light, small, affordable, reasonably sharp
Cons: Strong vignetting, focus a bit slow and hunts a bit.
Nevertheless - for the money you pay, you get a very decent lens.
Since I got the lens it has performed brilliantly. I prefer this lens over 'the other' 27mm lens for Fuji. The best performance per dollar lens I have.
