APS-C 23mm F1.4
[Wide-angle Prime Lens]
Characterized by its retro and versatile design, the TTArtisan 23mm f/1.4 is a 35mm-equivalent wide-angle prime lens designed for APS-C-format mirrorless cameras.
I bought the version for nikon z, the manufacture is exemplary, the ring of focusing is soft and precise, very pleasant has use, the ring of opening is well notched, with small click to find the good opening even without leaving the viewfinder, and it is sufficiently notched not to derange during displacements. The optical quality is very good especially considering the price, it does not have to envy that of the base lens of my Z50. In short, I'm very happy with it and I'd like to test the 17mm or the 40mm macro lens.
The value of the lens far outweighs the cost.
As a beginner I didn't want to rely on 'auto' but to gain experience on an affordable manual lens and this has exceeded my expectations.
I like this 23mm f1.4 lens. The focusing is smooth and I enjoy the click aperture.
I learnt photography on a manual film camera, and had forgotten the joy of having to think about exposure, depth of focus and lighting. I have my phone for automatic snaps, this takes my camera photography back to the creativity I learnt on and so enjoyed. You can create looks that an automatic camera will never make. I was very surprised by how much fun it is.
The lens is not perfect, chromatic aberration is quite noticeable, and it is not evenly sharp. But it can still take great pictures. Eagerly awaiting the arrival of my 50mm f0.95 lens to see what I can do with it.
very well build and easy to use.
Corner sharpness is sufficient, but not great.
Overall, I enjoy this lens a lot, and use it more than my expensive autofocus lenses.
